An Actual Email from Sydnee

Sydnees mission president change the rules for them and she is no longer allowed to email/chat back and forth on P-days.  As hard as this is for a parent, It was nice to get an actual email describing some experiences from Sydnee rather than me having to recount them from our conversations. Below is part of her email this week as well as some pictures

We have been working more closely with the ward to help them help themselves grow the bamberg ward. Its not very big and it is a little rough around the edges. We have been meeting more and more with members so hopefully we can get some excitement every time we bring some investigators to church.  Dad, its hard being a missionary, please help out the poor suckers assigned to our ward.  I got the coolest back handed compliment from an investigator the other day. She was introducing me to a friend of theirs and they said (in german of course). “She speaks really good german, she just cant understand it all that well.” If that isn’t a metaphor for my life I don’t know what is. SO if people ask how my german is just tell them that story.
