Dear Family, Friends, and Others (You're welcome too!),
This week has been sooooo good! I can't believe I've been in Ludwigsburg for almost two weeks! Time here is just flying as I'm trying to get to know the area, investigators, members, and, of course, my darling new companion, Sister Brinck. We had our first district meeting this past week. It was a little strange because of the eight members of our district, 4 are new to the district. Elders Wasden and Graver, Elders Petersen and Jensen, Elders Mickelson and Smith, Sisters Brinck and Harman. Safe to say, it was great! It's nice getting to know new missionaries and being able to learn and grown in this work!
This week, we were asked to do Genealogy! So we got to spend a couple hours, working on our family history and indexing. Turns out! Sister Brinck and I are related! We both go back to English Royalty and wha-la! Pretty cool! (So you know those little girls that pretend their princesses.... WE ARE ACTUALLY PRINCESSES!) haha Nah, as Sister Brinck pointed out... we are all children of a loving Heavenly Father, ergo heirs to his kingdom! It was really great to be able to talk to Sister Bieltiza about family history and get to know the 'regular' family history goers. Turns out family history is bigger for non-members than members here but, don't worry! We're hoping to get our members more active in family history work too.
As I'm sure you all are dying to hear, Destiny was baptized on Saturday! I was told by Sister Clark that it was a wonderful service. A double baptism, with one of the Elder's investigators, getting baptized as well. We haven't been able to Skype yet to talk about the experience but, that should be happening sometime this week. I know I'm excited to hear from him how wonderful the experience was!
Exciting things for the coming week, we have appointments with a bunch of potential investigators, Zone Training, Zone Conference, and loads of less active work to do! Oh and, today, we'll be headed to Stuttgart to see another Christmas Market! Should be great! Keep up the good work and try to remember what this Christmas season is really all about! (Hint: it's all about Christ! :))
Sister Harman said, "My head is feeling almost all the way better!" Thank you for all your prayers!
