Ya, sorry I didn't write back on thursday! Pres. Miles said I could read them but I didn't know if I could write back or not and I couldn't get a hold of him to ask permission. But I prayed for you all a lot! I am doing well. I am just making sure that we are always busy and that I get lost over here. Experiences like these make you remember how grateful you are for our heavenly Father. The peace and comfort that comes from a knowledge of what happens after this life is one of the most precious gifts that we have.
The work here is going well. We see miracles often, and I know there are more that we don't see. We taught a woman named A---- on Friday and it was one of the best lessons that I have ever had. She didn't want to prove us wrong, or expect us to know everything. She was simply wanting to learn and was open to the spirit. I felt the spirit so strongly through the whole thing and I know that she felt it to. She said that she wants to come to church  and meet again soon. At the end of the lesson she asked a little bit about Joseph Smith. We answered her question and promised her that she could pray and know for herself if he was a prophet. We left that lesson uplifted and excited. The next day she texted us and said thank you for the information but she doesn't want to belong to a religion. But I don't think that will be the last that we hear from her. I am almost certain that she recieved her answer and was a little bit afraid of it. Hopefully she is willing to meet just one more time. Luckily she is very friendly and she likes us a lot so we will see.
The missionaries in Singen called the other day and told us that they met a woman who lives in our area on the train. Her name is R----- and she is from Columbia. She said that there was a mormon church across the street from her house in columbia and she loves the mormons. She then told them about how she couldn't remember being baptized as a child in the Catholic church, and she would like to be baptized in our church. She has apparantly been looking for us for years. We hope to meet with her this wednesday when she has time. she also has a 14 year old daughter who was apparantly also interested. That would be just great for this ward.
Our apartment is fun to be in. Elders Schuhmaier and Stank are pretty funny and Elder Sardoni is a great companion. We will get transfer calls on this saturday so we will see if everybody stays. Also on this saturday, Elder Sardoni are going to the temple with the senior couple in St. Gallen! Their names are the Schwabes, and they are very nice to us. They have only been here for about two months now so hopefully we don't get lost on our way there.
I hope that you are all doing well and that you have a great week! I love you and pray for you!

Elder Eldredge
