Week #9 in Osnabruck (4 November 2013). Reese had a half-mission conference in Hamburg this week at which Elder Patrick Kearon and Elder Christian Fingerle (Area Seventy from Germany) did training.

Reese met up with a couple of former Timpview classmates--Elder Randall and Elder Karpowitz--and also saw his former companion, Elder Karlen, who is now serving in Hamburg. Here are three photos:
To get to the conference, Reese and Elder Mitchell took a train to Hamburg and spent the night there with the zone leaders and the assistants. On the way to Hamburg, they had a stopover in Bremen and visited a large carnival next to the train station for about thirty minutes. Here are a couple of photos:
The work in Osnabruck moved forward this week, albeit mostly by way of finding. Reese and Elder Mitchell continue to work steadily and found a couple of new investigators in Bramsche. They were excited about it.
