Alpine German Speaking Mission....The most beautiful mission in the world!

"But this is not all; they had given themselves
to much prayer, and fasting; therefore they
had the spirit of prophecy, and the spirit of
revelation, and when they taught, they taught
with power and authority of God"
Alma 17:3

Transfers, Goodbyes, and New Area!

Well, we all knew this day was coming sometime. I am now in Heilbronn!
It's roughly an hour north of Stuttgart. It's a cool area, definitely not Bayern,
but stay tuned for more pictures of the area! Anyway, transfers were pretty
small this time, not a lot of moving around going on. Elder Fox is dead!
He went home that is haha But it was good to see him before he headed for home.
Anyway, you'll hear more about how things are next week!

Elder Fox and I! 

Elder Gappmayer and I!

Elder Croft and Elder Hadfield and I!
