Last week's email

So this last week we had transfers, which means that my comp got
transferred to Mannheim, and my new comp arrived Tuesday, his name is
Elder Van Dam, he's from South Dakota, and has been on his mission
about a year now. So this week was fun showing him around Mainz and
introducing him to everyone. His German accent is way good so
hopefully I can pick it up from him.

Today for Pday we had a fun time. We went over to Offenbach so that my
new comp could take with some old friends of his. It was also cool for
me because one of my old comps was there. So we got to catch up and
swap stories.

Spiritual thought this week is about the love of God. I always think
it's cool to recognize that God loves us all, a lot. He created this
world so that we would have a place to come to and to have families
and learn and grow. In the Book of Mormon it says 1 Nephi 17:36
"Behold, the Lord hath created the earth that it should be inhabited;
and he hath created his children that they should possess it."

Hiking a Hill and Meeting an Atheist

This week was great. We got to go to this relay cool tower this week.
Which took a bit of a walk but it was worth it. One thing that will
never stop amazing me about Germany is how many ancient buildings
there are here. It's such an amazing land with ancient history. We had
great weather which made it even better. It turns out that next to
this tower there is a restaurant that has tigers that they bring out
while your eating..... It was closed today but it defiantly has my
interest peaked.

My favorite lesson this week was with this atheist, who we got talking
about some experiment that he had studied in his science class (he's a
nuclear science major). After he explained how they were able to prove
certain facts, it was supper cool to be able to relate that to how we
can prove spiritual facts. We set up an experiment and watch the
results. However unlike an experiment on a rat we need to experiment
with our lives. We need to change them according to the teaching of
Christ and if they help us, then we know their true.

Take care,
