November 2015

 November started out with a great Mission Leadership Council.
 Our Sister Training Leaders...
 and our Zone Leaders...
 had chances to practice teaching.
 This was not only great preparation for their own work, but also to go back and train the missionaries in their zones.
 We are grateful for all the work these leaders put into the mission.
 What a blessing to receive Elder & Sister Neugebauer into the mission!
The Ellwangen, Göppingen & Stuttgart Districts
 Also in November were interviews.  President Kohler travelled the mission to meet with each missionary individually.  He also trained the districts as they gathered.  I got to accompany him on one trip down to Switzerland--as we also attended Stake Conference there.
 Here are some of the missionaries from the Bern Zone after stake conference.
 Two of our wonderful elders who helped get us to the church building nearby for more interviews after stake conference.
 And the Solothurn District.
 We were sad to say goodbye to Elder & Sister McOmber--they served so faithfully with us!
 But it was exciting on the same day to welcome Sister Strihavka into the mission!
 I loved the chance to teach with the München 2 Sisters.
 And it was great to see the St. Gallen Zone at Stake Conference.
 Here are some of the missionaries that we could round up after the meeting!
 Our wonderful Sister Zaugg helped sort, label and organize the Christmas packages that came into the mission office.  This pile was just for one of our seven zones!
 Sister Gildner helped count out lots of pass-along cards for the Christmas Zone Conferences as we prepared to take them around to all of the missionaries.
 At our Christmas Zone Conferences we gave each missionary an Alpenländische Mission Temple Recommend holder.
 How wonderful to get Elder Gibbs back with us!
We had another great Coordinating Council Meeting with the stake presidents from our mission and our area 70, Elder Leimer.
And here is a picture of our own Elder Kohler, doing well in Moldova!
