2 months in Germany

Sean has been in Germany now for 2 months. His German improves more and more each week, which he is glad of. His companion, Elder Hawker is the District Leader, which means Sean and Elder Hawker spend a great deal of time traveling. This week Wes' Mom called us and shared something cool with us. She has found a line on her family side that traces back to the 1300's. The name was Van Bitten or Van Bitter. Guess where this family is from? The city of Krefeld...where Sean is now serving as a missionary. How cool is that!? Sean could end up teaching one of his distant cousins about the Gospel. We will get to hear Sean's voice on Mother's Day...can't wait!
I have included this interesting photo of Sean looking up at the gates of the castle...I have to wonder what he was thinking :) Good times on Pday.

Sean is doing great!

Sean has been in Krefeld for 7 weeks now. He seems to be loving it there and he loves being a missionary..something he had longed to do for a long time. He recently sent some photos of the area he is in. There are a couple pictures that he is in but they are off in the distance somewhat I will go ahead and post them anyway I love the photo of Sean swinging from the tree and the one on the hill where he is doing a funny walk
