Week #13 in Oldenburg (27 October 2014).  Transfers were the primary news this week.  Elder Schaal is headed to Berlin to be an assistant and Reese will be staying in Oldenburg where Elder Youngblood will join him.  This will be the third new ZL companion in a row.  Here is a photo of Elder Youngblood (he's the red head on the left):

In other news, a couple of investigators continued to make progress.  In fact, one expressed the desire to be baptized and they set a date.  Elder Schaal left for the mission office on Sunday and so Reese is spending a couple of days working with the Wilhelmshaven elders.  Fortunately, Reese did not have to miss his branch meetings on Sunday because there was a district conference in Bremen.  Reese was thus able to attend with his Oldenburg branch as well as see friends from Osnabruck.  Three investigators came and a baptismal service was held after the district conference, at which Reese handled the translation.  One bit of fun news:  at the district conference, Reese met Bishop Bunting of the Bremen ward.  Bishop Bunting is the son of President Bunting, Reese's home stake president.  Here is a photo from their meeting:
