So this week was really great! The apartment is clean - minus a bit of power but, that's a different story haha (blame the waffle maker!), we found loads of new people, we taught some great families (don't worry, more details to follow!), and just loved meeting all the great people the beautiful city of Munich has to offer us!
E is an amazing recent convert. She has 3 adorable children and a super great husband. We were able to go over this week and teach her and her children. A (9) and R (11) are so adorable and really have a desire to know God's will for them. They've been coming to church for quite a while with their mother and are making great progress to being baptized themselves!
We had interviews with President Kohler - not too much to report there! He's really great and all is clear for me to return to BYU this Winter (he did my ecclesiastical endorsement interview!)
In other news, our ward mission leader Brother Arnold is amazing! He and his family are from Colorado (woot woot!) and just so fun to be around. He's an incredibly hard worker and it's been great being able to look to him for guidance and ideas on how we can kick start the missionary work here in Munich! Sister Kopischke, our Relief Society President (leader of the woman's organization here in Munich 3) has also been instrumental in giving us direction in our efforts to help the Munich 3rd congregation progress! I just feel so grateful for all the great people with whom we work!

1. We tried to make waffles and blew a fuse.
2. We played soccer and I was sore for five days (I haven't run so far in ages)
3. Getting ridiculously soaked in the rain.
4. Ripping holes in 3 pairs of shoes (you know you've been on our mission a while when...)
5. You laugh so hard with your awesome companion that you literally start to cry
Cool story I wrote to Katie... :) Contacting = miracles
We met the coolest guy named A this past week! We just started talking to him on a straßenbahn and we ended up having one of the deepest discussions about faith and what it means to be faithful. It was one of the coolest conversations I've had on my mission! It was so spiritual I almost felt kindof dazed afterwards haha (he took a book of mormon and said he'd start it that night!) ;)
1 quick story.. new investigator.. got a Priesthood blessing. LITERALLY HEALED. SHE CAN NOW WALK! God's power really is here on the Earth!
I love you all so much and am so grateful for your support in my life! Being a missionary is really the BEST and I wouldn't exchange this time for anything!
