No Changes!

Sorry we couldn't email yesterday, so we are doing it today.  Well this week, we received  transfer calls and my companion and I are staying together for another transfer.  That makes 3 together, we both couldn't believe it.  Also our whole district is staying the same!  Sister Brim will have been in Lubeck for 5 transfers!  Apparently our mission president was in an area in his mission for 8 transfers, which is a year!  So he likes to keep missionaries in an area for a long time.

We went on an exchange this week and I was in Lubeck.  Elder Casperson and I had a great exchange.  We found a new investigator over the phone!  We talked to him for about 50 minutes, it was great.  We also met with this one guy who talked to us for about an hour straight without us saying anything!  Oh some of the things that happen while you're a missionary, haha!

Our investigators, the Memetovich family are doing pretty good.  This week they are going to the immigrant building and hopefully they will be able to stay for another month or so.  We have been focusing on teaching his wife.  So that means that he has to translate from German to Serbian.  We found out this week that a lot is getting lost in the translation so it's going to take a little longer.  A cool experience is that she asked our ward mission leader to give her a blessing.  After he gave her it she said she saw the dove that Jesus saw after he got baptized.  That was so powerful it was just awesome!
We had a couple of other investigators tell us they don't want to keep taking the discussions, which is sad.  But it just means we have to get back on the grind and work harder.  My German is coming along really well now.  Me and my companion are finally speaking German from 9 to 9!

I hope everyone had a good week! I invite you to read 2nd Nephi 9, it is a great chapter about the fall.  During personal study this week, I found it really powerful!
