For two years, from the end of October 2001 until October 2003, I spent my life in and around Berlin, Germany. I was there as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. When I was 19 years old, I decided to serve God by being his servant and teaching people about him and his plan. I spent two months in Provo, Utah to learn the German language and other skills. Then, I went to Berlin and started the proselyting portion. I spent all my time talking to people and teaching them about God and his message to them. This was challenging due to the fact that many people in the former East Germany are atheist. However, it was a wonderful experience and I learned a lot about life and my faith.
that I originally went to was the northeastern part of
Germany. Three months before I returned home, the
Leipzig Mission was combined to the Berlin
mission. I was able to see a lot of neat places as
well. We had time one day a week to take care of
personal business and do some sightseeing. I really
enjoyed this because I like history. There is so
much history in Germany.
city was Rostock,
on coast of the Baltic Sea. After four and a half
months there, I went to the Mitte in central Berlin.
I stayed there for four and a half months before going
to Lankwitz in Berlin. I was then sent to Brandenburg
an der Havel for three months. After my time
in Brandenburg, I went to a small town north of Berlin,
I stayed there for six weeks before moving to Tiergarten
in Berlin for four and a half months. I then went
in East Berlin. After staying there a short time,
I went to my last city, Magdeburg.
Consequently, Magdeburg is the sister
city of Nashville,
TN. The map above shows where I was. The
underlined cities are places that I lived in or proselyted. Click the underlined cities to see
