We have been doing a bunch of short trips this past month or two, with the time between very busy in the office. We have completed about 415 projects so far.
|I took a quick trip to Houston Texas to spend time with my daughter and her new baby. Wonderful.|
Back home, the YW and YM from Frankfurt, Friedrichsdorf, Offenbach, and Usingen Wards all met at the Bad Homburg warehouse after school one evening and we packed 2000 hygiene kits to be sent to Paris, where members hand them out to refugees sleeping rough.
Next we drove east on our first trip to the Freiburg temple. We met some temple workers who lived in the Livonia Ward! It was good to be back 'home."
While at the temple, we presented our LDS Charities Refugee Aid in Europe powerpoint and taught scripture and temple enrichment workshopsat a European Mid-Singles conference for 2 days.
|Since we were in Freiberg, we met with the Dresden Red Cross, toured a refugee camp and learned about their plans for preparing refugees for existing jobs in Saxony.|
|They've done a great job of rebuilding Dresden. This is the interior of the frauenkirche.|
|In Heidelberg we stayed with some friends, the Gee family. Randy helped each member of the family make their own lightsabers. A good time was had by all.|
|We drove north again, this time to Bremen. Can you tell? It was only after I learned about Bach's ancestors who were town musicians, that I realized that was a real thing.|
