Week #2 in Oldenburg (11 August 2014). It was another busy week.  One of the fun things to happen during the week was a visit from the Smith Family.  (Professor Gordon Smith works with Reese's father at the BYU Law School.) They were in Germany picking up their daughter, Eve, who had just finished her mission in the Alpine German mission.  Their son, Elder Smith, had just arrived in the Germany Berlin mission and is a "Golden" in Reese's zone.  They received permission for Eve to see their son, lest they go three years without contact.  The Smiths showed up to Oldenburg just as the missionaries were completing a zone training meeting and President Kosak gave permission for them to take Reese and Elder Savage to dinner along with their son and his companion.  Here are a couple of photos from the dinner:

And here is a photo of Reese, Elder Savage and Elder Smith driving away from the dinner.  Apparently, they inherited the sunglasses from the prior ZLs but, as Gordon pointed out, they have embraced the look.

Finally, here are two photos of the zone at their training meeting.  It's fun to see the joy in their faces--both when they are serious and when they are silly.
