Happy New Year!

Well, almost all of our appointments fell through this week and I'm pretty sure there was a Bremen-wide movement to ignore our phone calls, BUT ...

On Tuesday, when we went over to Michaela's apartment to teach her, her 22 year old daughter was about to leave to have coffee with her friend. Right as she was about to leave, she got a text from her friend saying that she couldn't meet anymore and she got to stay! Her name is Irina and we love her! Irina is so ready for the gospel - she wants to know what God's plan is for her. We had an amazing 1st lesson with her, and Michaela bore powerful testimony of the Restoration and the Book of Mormon. We have plans to meet with her again this week. 

One of our other investigators, Victor, called us and said that he really needed to meet with us. We met with him the next morning.  Apparently, he had been talking to a friend about the nature of God. His friend proposed the correct concept that the term "God" as used in the Old Testament does not refer to our Father in Heaven, but rather to Jesus Christ. Victor was really confused, but as we talked to him and read the Bible Dictionary and some scriptures that I had miraculously studied the day before, it all made sense to him. He called us later that day and told us that he wants to be baptized - an incredible step forward. 

Another highlight of the week was that Gordon, our awesome ward secretary, brought all of the missionaries these strange middle eastern burritos. I liked them and thought that they tasted like schwarma, but they didn't sit too well with some of the other missionaries. I guess I have a stomach of steel from 3.5 months of sketchy Israeli food.

I LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY. I love being a missionary because I know that what I teach people about is true. I love all of you and am so grateful for your support and prayers.

Liebe Grüße, 
Sister Hendricks
