Family!!Hello and hope all is well back home, it sure sounds like it and that is so wonderful to hear. Things are going well here and there is truly so much we can be thankful for. This is the greatest work and I love being apart of it daily no matter what time of the day it is whether if we are studying or teaching or planning for the next day, this time is precious and I am grateful for the guidance given so we know how to use the time the most effective!
Have a wonderful week!

Family!!Hey great to hear from you this week, I am always impressed on how many activities you are involved in and that you are accomplishing many great things in life. That is what life is about, having a true purpose in it and fulfilling many great things of your own free will. I learned a little more about that on the different side of the picture this week. So for about a year now or so we have been able email investigators and those we meet on the street and its great to send them links and such about the church. I know a lot more is accomplish that what is seem but we usually dont receive anything back from those we meet on the streets but this week was different as a guy named Marcel emailed us back with his number saying to give him a call! I am not saying no one has ever emailed back but this was great progress and when you strive and do your best with many different people, there will be at least one who will respond as God has prepared them whether it be less actives or those on the streets. We meet many but there are very few that act upon our message. Anyways back to Marcel, so we give him a call and make out an appointment for the next day! It all works out and we met him at the bus stop and go back to his apartment. We get to know him a little better and find out he is 21 and already retired, he lives alone and I can imagine that he usually stays home at his computer. He also smokes and I just felt so bad as we left that he has his whole life in front of him and its already going down hill. It truly is so sad to see and how much hope and happiness there is in life. God has given us so much potential in life and I know Marcel can totally change his life 180 degrees. It wont be easy but it is possible with God and his son Jesus Christ.

Family!!Great to hear from all of you on this great sunny day! Crazy how the weather changes from one day or week to the next. Its been a different summer here but its been good and we are enjoying it none the less. Every moment is a precious one no matter what we are doing and to be effective in all is very important. We did a good amount of service this last week helping out a few different people which was great to help out. We helped our Bishop as they are getting to move and also a friend of another member. You can never do too much service but I must truly say that I loved putting that white shirt and tie on afterwards and going out on the streets of Vienna meeting many different children of God. All who need the gospel whether they know it or not.

Family!!Good morning from raining Vienna! All is well here and we have had a great week. I hope all of you have had one as well and also for this coming week! The Lord is on our side and we have seen many miracles in the vineyard. Some exciting news that I would like to share up front from another part of the vineyard is that I have kept in contact with Steven in Stuttgart and he told me today he has made the decision to get baptized and that will be happening in October!! I am so glad the Lord has blessed his life in so many ways and that he will be making that decision! Horah for Israel!
