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."

Elder Flickinger
