This week was a pretty good one! One sad moment was that we had to say goodbye to our amazing Elder Acuna Moreno! He is now in Biel, Switzerland speaking German and French! We are so excited for him! He now has his own Golden and gets to train him! Our train was late, so we didn´t get to say an official goodbye which really sucks, but I know for a fact that I will be seeing him again 🙂
This week was also Tausch! But before that, we had Zone Training, and I gave a 5 minute talk in German on how to become a successful missionary!! It was great because that is what I have been studying myself! It was all in German and completely led by the Spirit!! My companion for the Tausch was Sister Burgess! She is from Australia and just such a great missionary!! She is so excited for the work! We talked to just about everyone that we could!! It was such a great feeling! We spoke German most of the time! It was really good and really helped with my German! We handed out 2 Books of Mormon and gave out a whole bunch of cards! When we went to go pick up Sister Fenton, I bought her a rose and a card with a sunflower 🙂 I gave it to her when I first saw her when we picked her up! I totally wish that I had gotten that on video!! But anywho, it was so great and I just love my trainer so much! Sister Fenton is such a thug 😛 Right now she is wearing a purple beanie 😛
This week I was talking to this woman on the Bahn, and she of course looked at my tag and asked what church that I am from, and I of course told her! She then told me her religion and I felt prompted to ask her if she believes in a living prophet on the earth today, and she said no. Then I felt prompted to share with her the first lesson overview! It was so cool! I didn´t know that I knew that much German! Whenever we would role play it, it just didn´t work out, but it was just working out left and right at that moment! I could feel the spirit so strong! I hope that she felt it too! I know without a shadow of a doubt that this gospel is true and that Joseph Smith restored the Gospel of Jesus Christ on the earth! I know that the Book of Mormon is the Word of God and that it works hand in hand with the Bible. I know that God knows each of us perfectly and loves each and every single one of us! I know that we can receive personal revelation and can receive answers to our prayers! I testify of this and so much more! I am so grateful to be on a mission! Thank you to all that is supporting me on my decision to go on a mission because it is literally the best thing that I have ever done in my life! I hope you all have a wonderful week and that all is well! Be safe and share God´s love for His children!
Always and Forever,
