Happy Mother's Day

Hey Family!

Skyping last night was awesome! I can't believe that those munchkins are talking so well already! You all look like you are doing great and it was great talking in real time. Like I mentioned yesterday, things here are going great. We have been having a hard time getting lessons to not fall out but I know we are just being tested a bit. I am confident that we will see a lot of success soon. Things are going up-hill! 

I just checked our baptized list from the mission and I learned that L---- and M----
were baptized! I am really happy that they made it even though it took a little longer than we expected. I am sure they are doing great and the ward in Konstanz loved them a lot before I even left so I bet they are already part of the family there.

We actually do eat a lot of asparagus here. All of the food has been great my whole mission. Even almost all of my companions have loved to cook so I have been treated like a king for the last 14 months. My favorite things to eat are probably Schnitzel (if it is made right), and then Leberk√§s with a cold Almdudler (the austrian ginger ale). 

I was reading in the "teachings of the prophets: Joseph F. Smith," and he said something that I thought was really cool. He said that he started seriously studying the Book of Mormon before he was old enough to be a deacon, and that ever since then he never stopped studying the Book of Mormon. He said "Through my life I have read the Book of Mormon over and over again, and I have still not read it enough." I really took that to heart and I am trying to improve my Book of Mormon study and I notice the effect that it has on my overall attitude and also on my confidence as a missionary. It is amazing what the Book of Mormon can do to a person who decides to make it a regular and important part of his life. All imperfections start to wear away and you automatically become more like the Savior as you live the principals that are taught in the Book of Mormon. 

Well I hope that you all have a great rest of the week and I can't wait to talk to you next week! Love you all!
