Jena ist Schön‏

Cant really see much in the background. But its a super good view over the city! 
"Jena is beautiful"


Our first full week in Jena is done. We survived it! And we survived it really really well.

So I’ll just start off with our P-day last week. A big bunch of the Zone came to Jena and we Played Football. It was great and the ground was super wet and we got super muddy! But great times. It was really good seeing my buddy Elder Muller again!

Elder Kenley with some free Coconuts that we got off of the street!
 Haha, Love Elder Kenley. He is great. 
One of the perks of serving in a Uni area is all of the JAE (YSA) people and all of the activities that go along with it. We got to go to Institute and FHE last week, and it was a blast. I really like working with and being around people in this age range! It makes everything so much fun. We have a bunch of solid JAEs here and they are so willing to help us out with the work. Super thankful to be here.

Another fun thing that we do is a free English class every week. This last week we had two JAE girls named Leila and Nina show up. We just play games with them and Gustavo, a recent convert. English was learned.

View out of our apartment building, right into the middle of the university campus! 
So, coming into a new area, we had to find some new investigators. And find them we did! After spending a bit of time going out and just hitting doors, we found 5 new investigators! We are so stoked with that and we have a ton of stuff going for us just after the 1st week. Thank you for the prayers and keep them coming!

One of the Investigators that we found was named Hannah. We have already met with her twice and she is making really solid progress. It was so great finding her. It was Elder Kenley's first day doing doors and we decided to say a real quick prayer before knocking on some doors.
We were feeling really good. And after just 5 doors, we run into Hannah! Prayers really work! Heavenly Father is there and he is always listening!

Man, Elder Kenley is a champ. I love him and he is doing a great job. He is adjusting well and this week he found an investigator all by himself! He knocked on the door and he did all the talking. It was awesome. He is really on top of his game!

Well, that was the week. It was a great one. I’ve begun to read the Book of Mormon again from the front. I’ll finish around the time I’m done with the mission. Great Book.

I gotta get heading, but I love you guys! Thank you so much for everything.

Bis nächstes mal.

Elder Nikora Philip Anderson
