Week #2 in Osnabrück (16 September 2013).  Reese started his letter this week with wonderful news.  He learned that a beloved investigator from Chemnitz was baptized and joined the Church.  His wife is already a member and he has been investigating for many years; he finally felt right about being baptized.  Reese wished he could have been there to participate but was absolutely joyful it had happened.  What a wonderful blessing to this brother, his family and to the Chemnitz Ward.  If it is possible to discern from a letter, Reese was walking on air.
The week in Osnabrück sounded filled with different efforts to develop a pool of investigators.  It sounds like Reese and Elder Mitchell are working hard.  They've had a bit of success in meeting and teaching.  As Reese described it: "All in all, the work is really starting to move forward here. I am excited about it."  They also had a chance to meet the branch president and Reese was very impressed with his energy and vision.  The branch president had actually served in the Provo Mission a few years back.
