Week #14 in Chemnitz (May 28, 2013 Letter).  Reese wrote one day later than usual because they took their p-day on Tuesday so they could go to the temple in Freiberg.  The big news for the week was that one of Reese's investigators accepted the gospel and was baptized.  Here are a couple of pictures taken just before the baptism, which Reese said was attended by about 30 ward members:

Reese has been teaching Brother Liu since he arrived in Chemnitz.  (Remember the story of Reese and his companion foregoing chocolate while their investigator was giving up coffee.)  I think this was a happy day for him. 

As I mentioned above, Reese also went to the temple.  He and Elder Pack not only did a session but were able to do confirmations in German and serve as witnesses for baptisms for some members from Poland.  Reese sent along these photos from the temple:

His district also went to the temple.  Here are a few pictures of Reese and his district at a beautiful garden in Freiberg:
