Week #14 in Oldenburg (3 November 2014). Reese reported another "solid" week. The most exciting news was that the wonderful sister they have been teaching decided she wanted to be baptized the following Saturday. On Wednesday, Reese returned to Osnabruck to conduct a baptismal interview, which would have been thrilling news for the branch, except that the baptism ultimately did not happen. Too bad. On Thursday evening, they took the train to Berlin and stayed with the Tiergarten elders in anticipation of the mission leadership council the next day. Here is a photo of the council:
Because it was President Kosak's birthday, all of the leaders and all of the missionaries serving in Berlin did a flash mob and sang "Lead Kindly Light" at lunch. They had three investigator families at Church and then after church had the chance to give a priesthood blessing to a recently baptized member of the branch. Reese closed: "Great week and the next week is also looking great. I'm excited for it."
