Our investigator with a baptismal date, Joachim, is still doing well, and is excited for his baptism. We have been going through the commandments with him, and he has been loving it. He is such a happy guy!
We also had a Zone Training meeting in the city of Essen during the week. I included some pictures from that experience. The city was putting up Christmas decorations, and they had a pretty cool train station full of changing lights. At the meeting they focused on how the Dortmund Stake will be working with missionaries next year, and how it will be a big focus, and then after the meeting as a zone we all went out finding people. My companion and I were assigned to go door a University housing complex.
To end the week, we had three investigators at church. One of these investigators had been waiting a long time to get to church because he lives so far away. It was a good experience, and afterwards, we met with Joachim and the Branch President and Joachim got to know the Branch President a lot better, even if the meeting ended up being three hours long because Joachim went through his life story, starting from his birth. That man can talk your ear off!
Anyhow, things continue to move forward. I am grateful for the opportunities I have been having on my mission, and know that I have been receiving help in the work.
