Week #15 in Osnabruck (16 December 2013).  Reese began his letter with "Wow."  They had an exciting week of missionary work, highlighted by the opportunity to teach three lessons to an investigator who indicated he had a desire to be baptized at the end of the month.  It sounded like a wonderful experience and Reese was plainly joyful.  Reese also had his Christmas Zone Conference in Hamburg this week.  Here is a photo from the mission blog (Reese is toward the back on the right):

At the HoHo ZoCo, Reese was thrilled to learn from Elder Karlen that another college student, whom they had found in Chemnitz, was baptized.  Reese also took these photos with other elders at the HoHo ZoCo:

On the 14th, the Osnabruck branch had a Christmas party.  Here is a photo of Reese, Elder Mitchell and the sisters singing a part in the Christmas program.

The last highlight of the week was a flood in their bathroom.  A hose broke on their washing machine and resulted in about an inch of water.  Reese said:  "We McGuivered a vacuum hose to make the leaking water go into the sink and then ran upstairs to our landlord."  A couple of hours later, it was fixed by a handyman.  Reese was just happy they made it to the Christmas party that evening.
