September 2016

 At the beginning of September the Freiberg, Germany Temple was rededicated.  The night before the dedication was a cultural celebration and some of the mission had the chance to watch a broadcast of it.  These were our Munich missionaries after the broadcast.
 And here were the other 4 helping clean up the building for the dedication the next day.
 That same week we were very happy to welcome Elder Reiner into the mission!
 Then it was Mission Leadership Council time again.
 Here are our Assistants doing some training.
 And here is the whole group.
 That weekend we loved attending a wonderful baptism in the München 4th Ward.
 And that Sunday was Stuttgart Stake Conference...
 We have a great group of missionaries serving in the Stuttgart Zone.
 The next week it was time for Zone Conferences.  I enjoyed having a time to visit with just the Sisters in each of our conferences.  And President Kohler had some time with the Elders.

 And we said goodbye to Elder & Sister Graham who have served faithfully in Linz, Austria.
 That Sunday we were able to visit the Winterthur Branch.  We have some great sisters there!
 The last week of the month was the transfer.  We received 25 new goldens!!!
 President Kohler divided them into groups to head back on the bahn from the airport.
 That evening we gathered after dinner to find out where they would all be serving and to share testimonies.  Very exciting!
 And the next morning it was off to the bahnhof to go to their first areas.
 That evening we welcomed our 10 departing missionaries into the Mission Home.
We enjoyed a great farewell testimony meeting.  We will miss them!
