As a replacement, I have Elder Meissner, the Austrian. Not only does Elder Meissner speak German, but he is also a singer. Multi-talented, huh? He was part of a famous Vienna Boys' Choir and has traveled around the world to sing. So maybe by the end of the transfer, I'll not only be able to speak German, but I'll be able to sing German. It doesn't even have to be in German; I'd be content if Elder Meissner just taught me how to sing.
Yesterday was General Conference, and we were able to get our district together to watch it in English. We got to sprawl out on leather couches and eat cookies and chocolate chip pancakes both during and in between the sessions. It was a great couple of days, though I found out that my pancake-making skills need a bit of a refresher. The other Elders didn't quite buy my excuse that the reason why the pancakes were black was because I added a lot of expensive chocolate.
Well, there's not too much more to say, so you'll be getting a shorter email this week. Just know that we're knocking on doors, teaching lessons, and crossing our fingers for more miracles.
