February 2017

On February 1st we took our Goldens to the bahnhof to go to their new areas!
There are often members who come to the bahnhof to see our tranferring missionaries.
It's a great time to see missionaries as they come and go in the mission.
That evening we gathered with our going home group to have a final dinner,
and testimony meeting.
Then President left immediately to start interviews around the mission; he began in Zürich Zone.
Erika and I stayed behind, but then rode the bus down on Saturday night... 
so that we could be in Zürich Stake Conference on Sunday.
Salzburg Zone at their Zone Training.
Next President did training and interviews in München Zone...Day One.
Day Two.
We were sad to say goodbye to Elder & Sister Hatch.  They have served faithfully in Lahr, Germany.  She has been our mission nurse and he has been a medical adviser.  We have really depended upon them!
Then it was MLC time again.
Our February Mission Leadership Council.
Right after MLC President Kohler left for Switzerland for more interviews.  On Sunday he was in the Aarau Ward with Elders Ebert & McCann.
Interviews and Training with the Bern Zone.
Back in Munich Elder & Sister Hanson hosted a lovely Valentine's Day Dinner...
They were very kind to feed many missionaries :)
Meanwhile, in Provo, a group of our former Sisters gathered--they sent us this sweet message!
While President Kohler was interviewing I had the opportunity to do some street contacting with our Munich Sisters.  They were great!
 Interviews and Training in Stuttgart Zone.
 Interviews and Training in Wien Zone.
 And finally in Salzburg...Day One
  Day Two.
 We enjoyed attending church in Richterswil with Elders Price & Jack.
 And we said goodbye to Elder & Sister Bader.  They have served faithfully in Ingolstadt and we will miss them :)
