Elder Michael Shinedling

Happy Thanksgiving

Guten Tag,

This week was great! We had transfers and I really wanted to stay in this area for Thanksgiving and Christmas and I got the call from one of the Assistants to the Mission President and he said that I was not being transferred-- I am staying!!! I'm super stoked to stay here for another transfer! My companion didn't change either so I am still with Elder Shinedling. Our district stayed the same except for Elder Radle who got transferred to Wiesbaden. We got Elder Sanders who was transferred from Mainz and he is from Mapleton, Utah.

From Friday to Saturday I went on a split with Elder Roundy. That was really fun because he and I are in the same group and we've stayed in both of our areas for four transfers so we know each other really well.

On Sunday the stake had a priesthood fireside thing so we went over to the Stoner's house on base and watched it with them. We've also been going to Trier a lot lately and doing a lot of street contacting and door tracting. On Tuesday we went door to door for like 5 hours or something like that. This week we've found a lot of cool potentials that we are hoping will turn into people we are teaching.

As far as the people we are teaching now, we invited Eric to Family Home Evening tonight so hopefully he can come to that. And we haven't been able to meet with Josh because he has been in vacation in Ireland. Hopefully next week we will be able to meet with him.

We also had District Council on Wednesday so we got to know the new Elder in our district and we learned how to teach better by the Spirit.

And today is Thanksgiving so we get to go over to Sister Born's restaurant and have a feast with a lot of the ward so we're super excited!

Anyways, that's about it! Hope all is going well down in the states!
Elder Rich
