Transfer Week

So I'm staying in Paderborn! However my trainer has left to coburg. My new companion elder Blau last served in Kaiserslautern, our English speaking ward, so between the two of us we have about a 2nd grade German vocabulary. He comes from a town smaller then glenwood somewhere in Idaho. 

We have zone conference this week which is interesting because we will be overnighting in Gelsenkirchen and spending some time with our zone up there. We're going a Zone Pday there so that will be fun. 

This week was defiantly interesting, I got to be babysat by the zone leaders while waiting for my new companion. His bus was a few hours late so as soon as he got off the buss my first words to him were something along the lines of "hi, I'm elder Flickinger and we have a train leaving in 7 minutes, grab your bags and let's run" we caught our train and made it to Paderborn with enough time to get in some quality contacting. 

We had a great amount of termins this week. Our kinda catholic preist investigator has decided to read the entire Book of Mormon and drive us to stake conference (which is great because there are not that many train times on Sunday). And our investigator with a baptismal date is already at Mosia 17!!! He's flying through the book. Besides that not a lot happened besides transfers. 

Scripture this week is 
3 Nephi 18:1-12 when Jesus introduces the sacrament among the Nephites. It's great to be able to partake of the sacrament each week and be able to bring it to a member that can't come to church. 

I hope you all have a great week, thanks for all the emails, 

Elder Flickinger
