Temple Trip and the Mormon Shop

Hello everybody!
It sounds like Bryce canyon was great! It's too bad that there wasn't too much snow this year but you seemed to make the best of it.
We had a really busy week! On Monday we had an eating appointment with our branch president and he has three really cute sons who love to climb all over us. Our branch president is really funny as well. He really loves to laugh and make jokes so it is always fun at their place. On tuesday we went to zurich for our zone conference. It was really great to see all of the missionaries there and to see zurich a little bit. That always takes the whole day though so we got home in time to plan for the next day and go to sleep. We are trying really hard to find out what the best way to travel in our area is because our tickets for Switzerland cost a lot so we don't have any bus tickets in Konstanz. So we are trying to figure out if we can get both. I really hope that we do because if we get bus tickets, our area will see so much progress because we will be able to visit people much easier.
On Saturday we went to the temple! It was a really really pretty day as well. We did the 9 o'clock session and there were some members from our ward there and some missionaries from our district. I even saw some members that were from Salzburg that had visited the Haag ward. It was pretty wierd to see them all the way on the other side of the mission but they recognized me as well so it was cool. Right outside of the temple is a place called the Mormon Shop. It is a lot like a deseret book. They even sell a ton of stuff from america that apparently only mormons eat like A&W and Hot tamales. They also had action figures from the book of Mormon, but the best action figures were the missionaries. That was cool!
We got transfer calls on Saturday as well and Elder Sardoni and I will be staying together for another six weeks. I find that good because I don't want to leave this ward yet. Plus, now I have two companions with whom I have spent more than just six weeks. We are having a lot of fun and we are really excited for the next six weeks.
I will make sure to send photos of the temple in a second E-mail. I hope you all have a great week! I love you all!

Elder Eldredge
