It's Oktober in Munich

In our church, we believe in the literal gathering of Israel, and in the restoration of the 10 tribes. I am honored to play a part in the gathering process. However great or small my contribution may be, I know that this is a fulfillment of many prophecies.
"That then the Lord thy God will turn thy captivityand havcompassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the Lord thy God hath scattered thee." Deuteronomy 30:3.

 OKTOBERFEST IN MUNICH ...handing our pass along cards of coarse!
 Playing for a district baptism with a little help
 Elder Spencer and Elder Vitel had to move! they have a super nice apartment about 20 minutes from the mission office
 Elder Bauerfeind from Germany and Elder Vitel from Romania
the figures in this keep calm and preach the gospel banner are spencer and vitel
The church is true. Everyday i receive a confirmation of the truthfulness of the work that we are doing. Sometimes i feel like one of the sons of Mosiah. When we think of their missionary efforts we usually think of ammon and aaron. But sometimes we forget about the missionaries like Himni! There are no stories of him converting a king, or converting thousands, but he too was a missionary, and took part in the work of the Lord. That is all that he asks us to do. Do our part in hastening the work of salvation. The work will go forth!
