A lot of missionaries write their final email they want to send out a couple weeks before they leave haha. Well I've been pushing it back and pday is coming to a close so I'd better start writing even though I don't know how to really capture how I feel in words.
I'm so happy. Really the happiest I've ever been.
The baptism was on Saturday and went wonderfully. I was pretty scared there because Satan was giving one of our investigators all these doubts and it was so frustrating, but he kept his eye on the prize and made it.
The whole ward came to the church building in Singen in Germany, because we don't have a baptismal font in our building. We organized all these rides for different investigators and we had like 7 different investigators and their families come. It was incredible. Such good vibes, you know? I was asked to give a talk again. Haha again. I think the ward is tired of hearing me talk all the time but I'm grateful for the opportunity, especially to speak about such a beautiful and simple principle as baptism.
I haven't written too much about Florian and Iliya who were baptized because I know that this blog is public and I don't want to write too much personal stuff, to answer the question of some people asking who they are haha :) I'll tell you all about it in person though, don't worry.
I feel like I should be writing this amazing last email, but this week was just normal, except extremely happy. Like we still had to do Finding and had Fall appointments, but Sister Fullwood and I were just so happy and excited for Saturday. Do you know what it feels like to invite someone to baptism and help them to get there without having to beg or bother them because they're actually really searching for it? It's incredible.
Every night before going to bed, I would sigh as I thought of how the Lord has poured down blessings upon us, with this blessing, the kindness and involvement of members, continuing to find new investigators, continuing to meet with people we have found and who are improving and feeling the spirit, slowly but surely.
"Heavenly Father, I don't feel that I deserve this happiness, but I thank you for the many blessings nonetheless."

|Pilatus Last pday|
|The amount of sweat I lost was disgusting. But so worth it. We hiked some of it and took the lift/trains on other parts.|
|Carried some sparkling cider to drink and celebrate at the top. Haha|
|Saying goodbye to the incredibly brave Asma.|
|Winnie, one of our investigator's daughters, and Vivi, the Wigger's daughter. So fun. Winnie has sass I tell you what. She invited me to her birthday party and in the same sentence asked me what I'm going to bring her as a present. I told her she owes me a present cause I'm leaving. So she danced to the prelude music for me haha. She does have moves though, I'll give her that. Definitely going to be one of those Disney channel kids someday.|
|Lovely Lea. Loved her mission and loved helping us with ours.|
