Family,

This week was so fast! But good!

Last Monday was great! We went to a way famous town in Germany called Röthenberg and it was so sick! It is like a Christmas town all year round so this time of year it is just wonderful. And Ad came with us so we just kinda wandered off together and talked about life and just how lucky we are lol. Then that night we had such an amazing member appointment. We talked about weaknesses n stuff and why we have them (Ether 12:27) and I just left feeling really uplifted. Then Monday night was interesting lol. It was 10:30 and I had just kneeled down to pray and I heard the phone ringing so I went to go pick it up and it was president calling. So I went into the kitchen and we just had such a nice convo. He is such a great man! He told me that my ward had even written him a letter.  Lol well we ended up talking till like 11:30 it was so weird but so cool. He was so nice to me and made sure I didn’t feel like I was under pressure and he started talking  “Elder Morris, I am aware of your situation. Thank you so much for maintaining a good attitude throughout this transfer. You have gained nothing but my respect. Bless your heart.” Lol I just wanted to cry it was so sweet. So ya that was just a great start to my week!!

Then on Tuesday we taught a sweet old lady named Frau Heberlein. She is so sweet! We just kinda talked about the Book of Mormon and what that means if it is true. She said she totally believes it could be true, but doesn’t quite grasp the significance of it yet. But she will! Then at the end I just asked if there was anything I could do for her and she kinda paused and looked out the window and started to get teary eyed. She said just to pray for her and her family. Then we left the appointment and before we even turned the corner, she called me and was just like “thanks for being there”. I just got such a warm feeling I felt so good! She is such a nice lady with so much potential!

Then Wednesday to Thursday I went on a split to a city called Regensburg! It is so sick I loved that place! There is so much to see!  We talked to lots of people and I also ate at the oldest restaurant in the world! Sounds crazy I know but it’s true. It’s this place that sells Bratwurst and it has been around since the 1300’s! Way crazy and way good too! Lol I’ll send you guys a pic!

Also I read 4 Nephi like 3 times this week it just kept on hitting me hard. It talks about the people back then being the happiest people on earth (4 Nephi v. 16) and all just because they were righteous and obedient. Like literally the happiest people on the planet. And then it was all just destroyed cause they were wicked and bad people and all their happiness went away. Just like way sad. It makes me just wanna cry these people really did have all the happiness in the world, and they blew it. All just for worldly prideful possessions! Sometimes I think I just need to realize and focus on what makes me happy in life. Cause I just wanna be happy.

Then Saturday came. So normally we find out transfers by just having a huge mission conference call and they announce everything. But this time they just had the assistants call us if we were getting transferred. So all day I was just on pins and needles wondering if a call was gonna come. And all day time just kept passing and passing I thought we weren’t gonna get one. But then at like 8:00 pm the assistants call and told us that Elder Wiley is leaving! Crazy! I don’t really know much about my next comp but I know that his name is Elder Vorimo and that he is my age on the mission so that’ll be nice to be with someone who can speak German and stuff so that’ll be great. But ya next week I’ll give you all details on him and all that!  I have learned a ton in my time with elder Wiley I’m way grateful I was comps with him.

But ya life is great. One of the sisters also got transferred so the area will be getting a new sister and a new elder! And on Saturday this week the sisters have a baptism!!

Lol it’ll be great I’m super excited!! #Pray4Tina

I’m all good out here I’m just trying to be happy and enjoy life!

Hope you all have a wonderful week filled with love!
