Christopher got baptized and confirmed! His baptism was packed full and his mom and sister came too:) he was so calm and just smiling the whole time! The funny part is that we probably should have filled the font just a bit higher. So the guy baptizing him had to really push him down under he water haha. His confirmation blessing was perfect. He is paving the way for the rest of his siblings who now want to learn about the gospel too:) Bianca, his mom, thanked us for the difference we have made in her family and I'm so grateful to have
watched them come closer to Christ.
We got to meet with Sister Galz for breakfast and she brought a friend! I can't even tell you how much I love sister Galz. She's like a second mom to me here in Frankfurt. Her friend is trying to find her faith again and was so willing to listen and learn! We invited her to take the lessons and she said yes. She's excited about the Book of Mormon and we just kind of sat there in awe that a new investigator just dropped right into our laps.
I had the chance to go to Wetzlar to split with sister Davis! We visited the family of our exchange student and it was so cool to met them! Sister Davis and I also did some street contacting together and found them a new investigator. She's a cute mom with two kids and her husband is religious too. We also met some great people in the long long long train ride to wetzlar and back to Frankfurt.
I split with sister Shurts too:) she brought a bunch of investigators to Christopher's baptism and set a new baptismal date with one if them right afterwards. It was my dream to go on a split with her and it happened! My last split too! I met some really cool people in the trains and buses this week. I set a goal to talk to one person in every bus or train I got in. I wasn't perfect, but I talked to a lottt of people! We met two nice girls from Columbia and Romania who have interest and gave some Books of Mormon away.
The biggest miracle of all..is that we are having a surprise, last minute baptism on Tuesday!!! Zehn Jiao is getting baptized:) she is the friend from sister gong, a member of our ward. We had only met with her once and we met with her again on Wednesday. At the end of the lesson she told us she wants to get baptized as soon as possible because she knows that this is her way and she finally found it! We hadn't even talked about baptism yet...she has been looking into churches for quite a while and she knows this one is true. Sister gong
is like the greatest member missionary I've ever met. We had to meet daily this week in order to teach all the lessons, but the funny thing is that sister gong had basically already taught everything. Zhen is the sweetest lady and she just cries every time she feels the spirit. There is a huge language barrier(they translate for us) but I can just feel her love every time she gives us a hug. I get to give a talk at her baptism and she even invited 15 of her non member Chinese friends. This is amazing:)
Here are the interesting/stressful things that happened this week: Sister godwin's wallet and iPad got stolen in the church because she left her bag...that means we have no train tickets and a lot less money for the month! We took a nice trip to the police office to file a police report. We also took a little field trip to pick up her visa
and passport that she lost in Wiesbaden as well haha. And now she's sick! This poor sister! But her new companion is amazing anddd they will now be covering the Nürnberg zone as well. I'm jealous about that
part haha. We will be housing a lottt of sisters in our apartment this week and there is just so much to do! Her new companion comes tomorrow so we will be in a dritt. We are actually in a dritt right now and that is a
whole other story! And then all my sisters start arriving so that we can all fly home together on Friday. I'm so excited to see them all but it still doesn't really feel real. The lord has really helped me feel at peace. I've been writing my mission history and it's so cool to look back and see all the things I have experienced and learned. I love my mission! I think I've finally learned to trust in God. Everything has always turned out perfectly in
the end. I wish I could write you half of the miracles I have seen, but I just can't! I really have a testimony that He is with us. He knows us and He knows what is best for us. These 18 months have been the best for me and I will always be so grateful that God sent me out here to strengthen my testimony and learn how to be His disciple. I love this work!
I can't wait to see you all! I love you tons
