Alles Gute Zum Geburtstag!

Birthday decor in the apartment.

Hey family!! 
Great to hear from all of you and thanks once more for the many birthday wishes. I am glad you had a great birthday as well, mom. This whole week as been great, full of missionary work, nothing better! Its great to have a few birthdays on a mission and I know I will never forget these ones. In the morning for morning sport, Elder Worthen and I ran to Schönbrunnpalace which was a great way to start the day. We did studies and then had a lunch appointment with an investigator, it was with Felix and we got to teach him as well, a perfect combination. We had some neat experiences as we had some contacting time and what better for a gift than to give others the gospel. It is a humbling experience and it made it extra special as I got to help other people have a special day, that is truly what made it a great day. We gave out a few Books of Mormon, those people that were prepared and received their chance and accepted the gospel. It is so neat and I am grateful to do that everyday! Happy Birthday to you as well mom, I am so honored to share the same week with you and we also had a great day on Friday as we help an investigator with some service as he is moving in and we carried multiple things for him and then sat down with him and talked about the Book of Mormon. That is the ultimate perfect combo where you get to give both physical and spiritual help! :) 
For the rest of the week, it was great as well as we met multiple people and had some neat miracles, I wish I had the time and space to tell them all but that will have to wait for another time. A few experience though, is that it is going really good with Daniel, we met this week and we set out for this next week to go to FHE with him and then one more time meeting with him throughout the week so we have more contact and he can be progressing more. We had an exchange this last week and I got to work with a brand new missionary out for 3 weeks, he is from Alpine and we had a great day. We were going to go by a member to just give them a note to thank them and let them know that we love and appreciate them. We contacted along the way and it was time to go home but I thought we could still have enough to go by none the less. We did it and on the way back we met on the street a less active member. It was neat to see as we serve our members and others, God puts in our paths those that also needs to be served. I love to serve! We met a neat guy this week originally form the Caribbean but has lived here for some time but also lived in Florida. He has a family here and is concerned for them and wants them to grow up happy. There are so many people to be reached and I am glad for the opportunity to meeting so many different people and knowing that the gospel of Jesus Christ can help them all no matter their situation or concern. 
We have got to run so thats it for today, but life is good, my birthday was another great day doing missionary work which I love, and I am grateful to serve God and his children. We are so blessed to live at this time and have the restored truth at our finger tips and to grow our personal testimonies of the truth. I know God lives and loves everyone of us. Have a great week and I love you all! 

Liebe Grüße,
