Family!!Happy Easter! I hope you all had a wonderful day as we celebrated the Resurrection of our Savior and Redeemer. I know he lives and his Atonement is real. It is for all of us no matter who we are or what we have done. True joy and happiness comes through him and what he has done for us. I am so grateful for him and this great message that we have to share to the world, all because of Him. It has been a great week with lots happening. We had a great Easter yesterday. We woke up to great weather with birds singing and it felt great as the last few days the weather had been dark and cloudy but it was a nice start to a new day! We had a lesson in the morning with a less active we have been working with and we had a member come with us. It was great to have him there and be bold to invite him to join us on this day to celebrate what Christ has done for us. It was very bold and powerful and there was a wonderful Spirit there. Unfortunately he didnt join us but still a great lesson and to have a member there! Then we took the street train further to church and in the train was Imanuel! You dont now Imanuel but let me tell you about this great Easter miracle story that has developed over time. So about a month ago we visited the Schaal family in the ward and the dad has a brother who is on a mission right now in Berlin. This Elder had found someone who actually lived in Stuttgart so got his information and emailed it to his brother. When we were over there he gave us this number and told us to get in contact with him. We tried but couldnt ever get a hold of him. I finally got a hold of him one day and invited him to General Conference. We later found out that the International Elders here had received his information in the mail and had just started contacting him and he had actually came to church last week to the International Ward and wanted to meet me as I was the one that spoke with him on the phone, so they introduced me to him and that was that. Then yesterday I saw him in the train and went to sit with him. He said he was coming to church to the German ward. He is here in Germany and wants to learn German so thats what is best for him. At church we introduced him to the Schaal family and it was such a neat connection to make! We had a great Easter service and then afterwards we went to an older single Sister in the ward for Easter dinner. We had the great treat of having the Bensons there (missionary couple in Stuttgart) And also President and Sister Miles!!! They have been in Stuttgart this weekend for Interviews and was going to stay for so we had the great opportunity to have an eating appointment with them. It was such a great time as we ate some traditional Schwäbisch Food and as we also sang hymns together and shared our testimonies. It was a great Easter !
