Besser denn je:)

Hallo Leute!
Yet another pday....weirdddd...and ya this week was AWESOME! I feel like my mission just gets better and better and better and better!! 
We went by a less active on Monday that we had tried to visit a few weeks back but the bus never came and he lives far out there so we have had to make sure we have the time to go out there. I was considering just leaving him be and having other missionaries go by him, but a few members told us we should go by and it was well worth it! We get there and talk with him about his life and his conversion to the church. He's from Croatia and had received a Book of Mormon there from two sisters who wrote in it that when he read in it he'd find the truth. He didn't like the fact that they "knew" he'd read it so for two years he carried it around with him and well he decided to finally open it and found the truth! He went on to be a branch president in Croatia and when he came to Germany he fell away because of his restaurant and complications in the ward. 
But he told us he had been hoping we'd come by because he was just married and wanted his wife to hear the gospel and so we will be teaching her and their kids next week!!! We're hoping that will get him back to church and that he will change his restaurant hours so that he can make it there:) 

We had a visit from Elder Sabin, in the Europe Area Presidency. He is a crack up and said so many things that were perfect to hear at this time in my mission. He said that we don't need to worry, we just need to do our best:) and that by trying we are succeeding! That was pretty reassuring, I think, for all of the missionaries. We all beat ourselves up to much about things when we should just let the worries go and work!
Heading to see Elder Sabin
Sister Dixon is also my best friend, we have tons of fun together and I tell her like everyday how happy I am that she's my last companion:)

D&C 64:33-34
Wherefore, be not ​​​weary​ in ​​​well-doing​, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. And out of ​​​small things​ proceedeth that which is great.
​​​​​34 ​Behold, the Lord ​​​requireth​ the ​​​heart​ and a ​​​willing​ mind; and the willing and ​​​obedient​ shall ​​​eat​ the good of the land of Zion in these last days.
