July 2015

We started the month with a 4th of July picnic with our outgoing office couple (the Thurmans) and our incoming office couple (the Zauggs).
 This was an awesome baptism in the International Ward here in Munich.  Tanner was blessed to be able to help teach this great family.
 July MLC was a productive meeting.

 Tanner got to help with a demonstration in the Assistants' training segment.
 A wonderful group of Zone Leaders & Sister Training Leaders!
We enjoyed visiting Innsbruck and seeing our elders there...
 also our wonderful couple the Haslers.

 We also had a good time meeting with the Brixen missionaries
 And the Klagenfurt missionaries.
 We were lucky to have Elder & Sister McOmber show us their very specialized church history assignment digitizing church records.
 We got to see the Graz elders too!
This month we had to say goodbye to two of our faithful couples--Elder & Sister Wade who have been serving in Klagenfurt, Austria,  
 and Elder & Sister Thurman who have been serving in the Mission Office.  We will miss you!
 It was a special day for our family when Tanner received the Melchizedek Priesthood and was ordained an Elder.
 What a fun treat to have a visit from Sister Frederiksen and her family!
 And we were glad to welcome Elder & Sister Christensen into the mission--they took over for the Wades in Klagenfurt.
 We took a trip down to Bern and got to see these great elders!
 It was wonderful to be able to take Tanner to the Bern Temple for his endowment.
 We loved all being in the temple as a family!
 We were so proud to have our Sister serving in Japan, and now we will soon have our own Elder serving in Moldova!
