Awesome Week!

 This statue shows how Elder Spangenberg is feeling now! 

 It's a Potsdam Statue

This is Elder Morton, the new companion!

This was an amazing week.  Pday was okay, it was raining so it was really cold but we still got to see some stuff before we left.   Then it was transfer day.  So, me and Elder Fowler were on each other's nerves when we left.  Literally, the last week was so hard.  We didn't get along that great, we both had different views with everything.  He was very stubborn with his views.  So it was very hard to get work done, so we didn't get anything done.  However that changed this week.

My new companion is Elder Morton.  He is great!  He is so energetic and enthusiastic about everything, he is also very obedient.  And an amazing runner and singer.  We had a great week together.  We found 8 investigators this week!  That is more than 3x what me and Elder Fowler found in 3 months!  We are going to do some great things with Spandau.  We are working this week on trying to get the wards support because in the past the ward and missionary correlation has not been that great.  We are speaking German 9 to 9 now.  So that should hopefully improve our German a lot.

I am learning a lot from Elder Morton.  We try to talk to everyone!  In the past me and Elder Fowler would only find when we scheduled finding time but now we find when we are going to appointments and whenever we see people on the street.  I have really seen the success that comes from talking to everyone.
Well that's it for the week.  Next week we have appointments out the wazzoo.   Which is a big change.  I will send lots of photos this week.
