Week #6 in Oldenburg (8 September 2014).  Reese and Elder Savage had another wonderful week, culminating in the opportunity to baptize the young son of some long-time investigators in the branch. The only blemish on the week was that p-day was spent with car problems;  Reese reported their car battery went kaput.  On Tuesday, they had a combined zone conference with the Hannover Zone, which Reese enjoyed because he saw many missionaries from his former zone.  Here is a photo of everyone together:

It was also transfer week in the mission.  Elder Savage is headed to the office in Berlin and Elder Schaal, who is from Stuttgart, will be joining Reese in Oldenburg.  Reese was sad to see Elder Savage go.  They've had a good experience together.  However, he was excited at the prospect of working with a native German companion.  It is something he has wanted since very early in the mission.  Here is a photo Elder Schaal (with black sweater) taken on the day he arrived in the mission from the Preston MTC in January 2014:

Finally, here are a couple of photos of an interesting hay configuration that Reese and Elder Savage found:
