Back problems

This week was not quite as busy. My companion's back was really hurting him earlier in the week, so we had to take things a bit slower than usual. He finally decided to call the mission president's wife on Thursday, so I knew that it had to be pretty bad. He is not one to call unless it is really, really bad. Later that night, we got a call from a retired doctor that ís serving in Görlitz with his wife, and he told him what he needed to do and how to make sure that it won't get worse.
We witnessed some miracles this week though. One of our investigators, Bernd, decided that he was ready to be baptized. Right after we committed him, he said the prayer, in which he expressed his thanks that he could change his life and become a new person through what we are teaching him. It was actually really powerful. The other fun event was that the investigator we have who is already on a baptismal date came in a suit and tie for the first time. I was so proud of him! He is finally starting to mingle and fit in with the ward here, so it was a great sunday for us. 
I guess that Obama is going to be coming to Berlin this week. It is funny, because it will be the closest that I have been to him since he was put into office, and it will be in a foreign country. The Germans are really excited about him though, and he will be giving a speech at Brandenburger Gate. But other than that, it was a pretty slow week for us. The transfer just started, so it should pick up soon (once my companion's back is feeling better). I wish you all a great week, and HAPPY FATHER'S DAY DAD!!
 
With much love,
