Elder Austin Fullmer – Sommerfest

15 August 2011

Familie und Freunde,

I loved getting all your emails this week! It really lifts me up to hear from you all. Good news: President Pimentel announced a change in email policy. I am now allowed to email back if I receive an email. That means I can email people everyone back, when in the past I was only allowed to email my direct family. I still can not promise that I will be able to email everyone back every p-day. I only have so much time.

This week was pretty good. We had a lot of success. We challenged three people to baptism and all three agreed. One is a small family. Frau (Ms) Boysen and her son Maurice. They are really nice and absolutely love the missionaries. A little too much almost. They came to church this Sunday which is really good because they can be a little flaky. They really love the geminde (ward in German), which is really good. After a while as missionaries we will be switch to a different area, so we are working really hard are trying to get geminde members to come with us to teach. The other investigator that has a baptismal date is Herr (Mr) Wegner. He is pretty cool, but honestly a little foreboding to me. Not that he is scary, he is just really intelligent and uses a lot of large German words. I can hardly understand normal speakers let alone German intellects. Nevertheless, he is a really cool guy. We meet him at his garden which is really close to the church. It is really beautiful. He has been coming to church for the last three weeks. He is super solid.

Last night we met at a Wohnung Gemindshaft. It is a big apartment in which many people live. This apartment has five people: three young single adults and a young married couple. They are all really solid in their faith. We talked a lot about the Book of Mormon and why we need it in addition to the Bible. They ask a lot of hard questions, but it really shows their genuine interest. On Saturday our ward had their annual Sommerfest. Which is exactly what the name says, a summer party. It was a really great opportunity to talk to and enjoy the company of the ward members. Germans like to have fun and they like to feed me delicious German food. It was awesome.

Last Thursday was probably one of my favorite days since I have been here. We had Zone Conference. It was really awesome. There are eight Zones in my mission and we meet as couples for Zone Conference. I am in the Hamburg Zone, so we met with the Neumünster Zone. It was a really refreshing opportunity. At the MTC you are with a 2500 other missionaries all day every day, but most of the time out here in the field it is just you and your companion. I am the only Golden in the Hamburg Zone, but their are two Goldens in the Neumünster Zone, so I got to see both Elder Turney and Elder Cloward. So cool. President and Sister Pimentel were their and both gave talks. It was really good to see them and feel their love for us. At Zone conference you hear from the assistants to the President, and your zone leaders. Also we have a big lunch. I got to talk with Elder Turney and Elder Cloward during lunch.

I love you all!

Love,

auf Wiedersehn,

Peace,

Elder Austin Arthur Fullmer
