Elder Austin Fullmer – Woltorf

24 October 2011

Hallo everyone,

Good week here in Begedorf, Deutschland. I hope that it was a good one for you all in the grand old USA. We did not have as many appointments as usual this week, but the ones that we did, were very good. We met with a woman name Brigett Boysen. Elder Lingard and I met with her often the first two transfers that I was here, but we sort of lost contact with her. She called us this week and asked it we could meet. It was convenient and I am pretty convinced that is what the Lord wanted seeing as we had an appointment fall out five minutes before we got here call and we were maybe 200 m away from her door. We talked about prayer and how important it is. We read from the Doctrine and Covenants Joseph Smith’s prayer in Liberty Jail. It was cool.

We also met with the Lekhler Family. They are Russian, and don’t believe in God. We talked with them about our pre-earth life and then read Alma 17 with them. For those of you that are familiar with the Book of Mormon, you might wonder why we would read that particular chapter of the Book of Mormon. It gives an account of a prophet missionary named Ammon, who goes among a group of people who do not believe in God. Chapter 17 is about how he wins the trust of these godless people. We asked the couple to read Alma 18 this week and we would talk about it with them when we met this next week. Chapter 18 describes the interactions and discussion that Ammon has with the King about God. Pretty cool.

In the evenings this week we went door to door in a city called Woltorf. We are finished with half of the city. We haven’t seen a whole lot of success there, but missionaries have done much in this city for a very long time.

Sorry this email is short this week. I guess nothing too excited happened. I do want to leave you with a scripture from Doctrine of Covenants 25. This section was revelation directed to Emma Smith, the wife of Joseph Smith. Verse two says, ”A revelation I give unto you concerning my will; and if thou art faithful and walk in the paths of virtue before me, I will preserve thy life, and thou shalt receive an inheritance in Zion.” May we walk on the paths of goodness.

Love,

tschüß,

and as always, peace,

Elder Austin Arthur Fullmer
