I'm grateful for Heavenly Fathers wise wisdom in teaching me things to help shape me who He needs me to be.

This week we spend family home evening with Jonny Banban and his
family. They are a wonderful family and they are trying to do things
such as family home evening even when it can be hard with kids. This
week we had an amazing zone training the spirit was so strong there!

This week we had the fun privilege of getting Elder Dean his visa,
which when you go takes all morning and so you don't get home until
the afternoon. We were able to help Geordana a member of our Ward
prepare her first sacrament meeting talk. She did great. We met with
Petra this week and she is so great she wants to get baptized next

 We met with Favour this week and she has incredible faith in Jesus
Christ! Anita and Sam have left now well will tomorrow to go on
vacation to India for a few months so it was good to meet with them
and give them the information for the mission there and how to find
the missionaries. We were able to meet with the Family Rabaya and
their friend Giselle this week. It was great time and next week we
have already planned to decorate a Christmas tree. 

Hope to be able to start meeting with Gizelle regularly and help her come closer to Christ. We met Niship this week and he is quiet the character. He is from Nepal so it is always interesting communication, there are some barriers. Martin met this week with us and we helped him study more about resurrection and so forth.

On Sunday Brother Jovero the former bishop was in town and it was lovely to see him and his wife there. They are really lovely people.

Leo was confirmed a member of the church and given The gift of the Holy Ghost this week. It was so neat!
This week we met Alan. Alan is a refugee who is working his way to go to the United States. He has interviews to see if he can. The sisters
in the third Ward found him and he speaks good English. He has such a strong believe in Jesus Christ! We had a really great tour of the
church and answered a lot of questions.

We had great conversations about things such as the temple and doing work for the dead, baptism, Book of Mormon, and the Restoration. He is incredibly prepared to learn more about Jesus Christ. I am so grateful to be a missionary and share this wonderful message. I'm grateful for this wonderful life we have and for all our opportunities to help others. I'm grateful for Heavenly Fathers wise wisdom in teaching me things to help shape me who He needs me to be.

If we listen to the Holy Ghost, He will lead us daily!

So last week for pday we went to Stephansdome with Wien 1 Elders and Sisters. It was great. I bought some new pants last week, Some Lederhosen. Today we went into the mountains and looked over all of Vienna it was so cool!
One cool hint is when we went to go by on some investigators we have not had contact with after we stopped and they weren't there so we walked away and as we walked away and she came and it was so cool to see out answer to our prayers!
This week we met with Sister Joveros the daughter friend Christian. He is so talented he is so great! On Thursday we were able to have the baptismal interview for Leo. We were able to meet and give a blessing to our investigator Andreas this week. We were also able to meet with our Ward mission leader and his family. They are wonderful people. We met with Petra! She is so crazily prepared! She has so much faith!
We also got to take tour with our friend Niship who is well not active but he gave us a tour of the technical universities library. We were also able to share time with Martin this week. This week Elder Dean and I have gotten to know each other a lot more. On Sunday we had a baptism for Leo. He is so awesome. He has so much faith. It was crazy a lot of the Ward stayed for it so we were packed into the relief society room but good. We kept bringing more chairs in.
We felt bad but the heat wasn't working that day so he was baptized in cold water. I'm not really sure what I said in my talk during the service about the Holy Ghost I know it was not how I planned. But that's okay I hope someone was touched by it. It was so great! Love you all have a great week!
