Oh I was totally mistaken then so most of your district is going to Berlin?
Even Sister Lyda she is going to Berlin?

I love the pics and video so much fun, you are so amazing, also thanks
for sending Sister Lyda's email. I wouldn't say she is more detailed she
just tells more day to day. I love getting both it gives me a great
insight into how your days are. I have a question for you is your whole
district going to Frankfurt or are some going to Berlin? Also I wondered
if you could name them for me. I love you Lynzie and I so appreciate your
determination to serve the Lord. I sent Sister Lyda's parents a facebook
message but it doesn't look like they get on facebook very much you might
see if she can tell them there is a great missionary mom and dad site. I
could direct them to the right place. Anyway I love you tons it is so
great to hear from you and I"m glad you are feeling the love of the Savior
in your life.

Guten Morgen!!!!! oh my goodness!! this week has flown by as if on a
jet!!!! I feel like i just got here but really I have been here longer than
the time that I have left in this blessed prison! hahah! I love it here! I
cant explain the things we do here but Im going to try! so bare with me...
We go play volleyball on the sand courts by the temple everyday and
walking there and back is the only glimpse of outside world we get! The
smoke was so bad earlier this week that our glimpse was completely
disrupted... so thanks alot elk ridge fire! just kidding! I hope all those
who are affected by the fire are safe and sound! I hope you know that every
prayer Ive heard here at the MTC since the fire started has mentioned that!
we are praying for you! and we are missionaries, representing our Savior!
so when we promise something or pray for something it is amazing the
answers we receive! We love you and I hope all works for the best!
Also while walking back to the mtc we occasionally see people that aren't
wearing a black name badge and that always takes us by surprise! haha but
there was this kid walking by who had hair just like napolean dynomite...
and elder hawkins asked him as he passed if he had seen the movie. the kids
without hesitation yells back, "too many times" hahaha and it doesnt take
alot to get missionaries laughing... obviously! we laughed the entire walk
oh! concerning the subject line of this email. me and sister lyda have
been called as the branch 11 sister training leaders! its amazing how God
knows what we can handle and how to make us humble, improve and do things
we didn't think we could! but along with the amazing opportunity to serve
all the sisters in our zone and get to know them, we were blessed with a
dinosaur phone! It can litterally do didily squat! the only thing we can do
on it is push 2 speed dial and call the front desk, who then forwards us to
our branch president. and you have to plug your ear and push the phone to
your other ear because when someone calls on it, it sounds like they are
talking to you from the dinosaur ages! It so hard to hear! but its really
odd to hear a phone ringing because I havent heard that for 3 weeks and now
I have to answer the phone and talk to someone from the Jurassic park time
period! its pretty funny! but wow its an antique! haha!
On another note! something that might not surprise some of you is that I
am the unofficial medical person! people get sick or hurt and I hear my
name and come with my medical stuff! its pretty awesome! I love it! not
alot of serious injuries but a few blisters and cuts here and there! mostly
sick people! the bugs go around so fast here! its hard to not catch
anything! but We are trying our best! haha!
We had Elder Neil L. Anderson come speak to us last night and how amazing
that was! He spoke on a topic that he said he has never had the inspiration
to talk on before! it was the power and influence of the Temple! How
blessed as missionaries we are to attend the temple every week and receive
of those blessings and personal insights or revelation that can and are
supposed to be given in that beautiful hallowed place, the house of the
Lord, Holiness to the Lord. Its amazing! I challenge each of you to attend
the temple more frequently! You will receive blessings beyond your wildest
dreams! God truly resides in His house and you can too, but you have to go
there! Thats a promise from a representative of The Lord Jesus Christ,
challenge it! test out the promises of the Lords Chosen!
Also, for general conference, which is in 3 weeks!!!!!!!! they are
having some missionaries sing in the choir! We are beyond excited, but they
can only call 364 missionaries, but still! how amazing it will be to be
apart of that choir to sing praises unto the Lord. On a similar note,
please make sure you can listen to General Conference! We have the
opportunity to listen to Gods Mouthpiece. To listen to The Voice of the
Lord through His Chosen Apostles! DON'T MISS THIS!!!! Dont miss it for
anything!!!!!!! God will put His answers for you in the words of his
apostles and If you dont listen, God cant help you! SO LISTEN!!!!! We heard
a talk by elder bednar called Character of Christ! Its soooo good! go
listen to it! but in it he says, "when the natural man would turn in and
think only of himself, be like Christ and turn outward!!!"
That was amazing advice! when life gets hard and you want to only think
about you, dont, and look for outward for who the Lord wants you to bless
Well, Im running out of things to say but holy cow! I love my district
and i love My Savior! He is my master and He has Chosen Me to represent
Him! HOW GREAT IS MY CALLING! Thank you for the prayers and thank you for
the emails! I would love to hear from each of you! even if you have nothing
to say... just say hi!
I just wanted to add for the sake of my mother, that i have been here 3
weeks and in german I can testify of my Savior Jesus Christ, pray to My
Heavenly Father and get my answer through reading the Word Of God
(Scriptures),my point is not to boast but to challenge you that if you
think God wont listen to your prayer or Jesus Christ doesn't know you, or
you dont have time for the scriptures, then try a little harder! pray a
little more sincere and never forget that Your Savior Died for YOU! Don't
ignore the man who cares the most about you! German is hard but through
Christ I can do ALL things, Alma 26:12! I'm memorizing this in German and
wow!!! the gift of tongues is a real thing!!!!
Ich weiss das Gott lebt und liebe sie! Jesus Christi ist unsur erretter!
Und wir konnen beten zu Gott und er werde uns antwort! (Dont judge my
german if you know german... Grammar is hard!)
My district is the best!! And so is this view!!! Don’t ask me why elder
Hawkins never smiles... we don’t know... neither does he... hahaha
These are my asl buddies!!! I love them all!!! So glad that they are in
Here’s our dinosaur!! I mean flippity phone! Haha yes those are cracks!
No we didn’t put them there!
Why yes!! This is my companion! And why yes! She is the funniest person
here!! And yes! She is communicating the velociraptors! Why do you ask? Haha
Sister van orden sat on the chair and as you can see this picture doesn’t
need any more explanation! But take a min to soak in sister bills grin
while her companion is screaming in pain! Haha
This is us waiting to see elder Anderson! We sang in the choir and sang
Hope of Israel!! It was amazing!!!!!! We can sing with the spirit and
that’s why we sound so powerful!!
Sister lyda recorded by accident so... there you go!!! Our laugh! Haha
The smoke was so bad!!!! This was our view though!! This is a sneak peak
out of our window! At the garden of eden!! We love it!!!
This is our room tour!!! Please enjoy!!!!
With much Love,
Sister Weakley (toughly
