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

Happy New Year in 2017!

Elder Carter and Elder Batzke

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Elder Carter and Elder Batzke's Christmas day in Neumarkt, Austria!

Elder Carter wrote....

   Let's not forget the reason for this wonderful season, our Savior,

Jesus Christ. He was the first and very best Christmas present there
ever was and ever will be. Because of Him we enjoy this time of year
with the peace and knowledge and joy that there's something more to
this crazy time of year, to the last minute trip to the grocery store,
to the hectic schedules, to the high expectations of Christmas parties
and celebrations. It's about so much more. It's about refreshing our
perspective on what really brings true happiness into our lives and
into the world. Love. Service. Light. Hope. He is gift of all gifts.

A Very Happy Missionary!

'I'm staying! I'm staying! Whoa I'm staying in Neumarkt until I come home, which will be February 2, 2017 ๐Ÿ˜€ there was a possibility that there would have been a change with us here but we are blessed and lucky enough to stay together for one last transfer.'

Elder Carter wrote in his email,

.... we went to Oberndorf, the place where the song 'Silent Night' was written! :) the church in which it was originally written was torn down sadly because it was a wreck but
there is a new chapel/ little church that was built as a memorial. It's pretty cool.


Patrick was baptized! awesome young man!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Elder Carter writes in his email.... 

'We also had Thanksgiving this week on Saturday! :) yes I know, a 
little early, but here in Europe Thanksgiving is not an official holiday, sadly, and therefore all the people have to work during the week. Here in our ward there are a handful of American and American-Austrian families and so they celebrate Thanksgiving and they invited us :) it was so good! But yeah most of you know that anyway haha'

He's official...
