Week #16 in Osnabruck (23 December 2013). Reese continued to be upbeat and cheerful in his letter: "It is fun to talk with a lot of people about Christmas and see what they believe. (We use it for finding lately.) I am thankful to remember Christmas for what it truly is - celebrating Christ." He was a bit disappointed because an investigator who has felt such a great spirit about the gospel did not come to Church but the branch had another missionary farewell that Reese enjoyed. On Christmas Eve, we received the following three photos from the ward mission leader of Reese, Elder Mitchell and Sister Hayden and Sister Brown. They look like a joyful and good group of missionaries. Merry Christmas to all!
