Germany Week 9

Well Family,

This week is going to be short because I´m going to try and send you people some pics of what has been going on. I´m glad to hear that all is going well and that the Lord is blessing you. Mom don´t worry about when I come home ….. because I´m not sure it´s going to happen ! hahahah jk someday but not for along time to lets not talk aobut that.  If we do I´m just fine coming to AZ, I don´t need to come home to UT.

We have had a great week, we went to a sick house to play music and when I say we I mean Sister Hasen because we all know how well I play and sing ….. but we found a whole group of people that wanted to talk with us so we have been holding Sunday School every night at the sick house. its pretty sweet we normally have about 8 people and we gave them all Books of Mormons.

We also came up with great finding idea. We tell people we are making a movie and ask them if they will hold the BOM and say something to the camera and they say yes and then they want to know more, like, what is book,  what are you two crazy sisters doing in Germany, its pretty great and its alot of fun. and the best is we are making a movie out of the clips of our president. I’m going to go load so pics up for you all okay.

Love Ashley (Sister Kingery)

Germany Week 8

Dear Family,

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh what is going on…. so Mom and Dad you are moving toPrescott Arizona that is so crazy yo!!! But I´m so happy for that blessing in your lives!   Mom what are you thinking leaving the boys with a house and no parental supervision???   And I´m guessing that means that Travis is also getting my car…..    Have you thought this one through an 18 year old living in a house by himself and a car??   I think that’s so not fair I would have never been allowed to do that.  But whatever that’s life.   Travis enjoy your freedom just don´t be dumb you still have a mission buddy!   Also who is going to take care of itchy??   I don´t think he would move well without me and the boys will forget him.

So what is the new job?   It sounds like its good enough that Mom doesn’t have to work anymore that is great.  Mom I’m so happy you are going to get a break….   You should take my hammock to AZ with you and just read books in the sun and eat blue otter pops, that would be amazing!  Oh and that will be so great that you will be near Erika when she has Brooke.   You are going to love being a Grandma.

So I’m guessing all of my info will stay with the red pines ward yeah? DAD Happy late Father’s day!!!!   I hope it was the best ever and that someone made a big yummy chocolate cake (I would have made you one)!   I’m so excited for your new job that is so freaking fantastic!!!!   I hope this job will be something that you will enjoy doing!   Also thank you for sharing your testimony about prayer with me, never forget those moment when you feel his love.   It´s so true that the Lord really does love each of us so much and He is always there will and waiting to bless us.    All we have to do is live the gospel and that’snot hard because it’s so easy and just makes our lives so much better!!   Ican´t tell you how many of my little prayers have been answered out here just small things but it reminds me that I am a child of a loving Heavenly Fatherwho loves me.  Dad I love you so much.

(Cool Building in Friedrichsdorf)

So yes it is summer here I think it rains a lot I´m making good use of my umbrella.   But things are such a blur these days everything happens so fast and I can never remember what happened on what day….. I think I´m going to have to start writing it down every day cuz I really can’t remember.   But the people here are so kind they love totalk to us and that´s great.   So I´m starting to understand German a little more but I sure can´t speak it yet.   So let’s pray that I get the gift of tongue sbecause I need it.   It’s pretty bad yo. Bu tI just love being out here on the mission. Again I´m running out of time….. Time what is time on a mission we never have enough, always working.  Also mom I told Erika about this but I´m going to Frankfurt tomorrow and I will see about a blessing and such. But I love you all so much and hope only the best for you!!!

Well I don´t really have a funny or good story for you this week so you should send me one …. Maybe I´ll have one next week after I´m more settled in. Oh my gosh Brandon and Ashlee WHAT that is so crazy!!

Oh man family I am just loving life right nowthings are just so great.  I´ve been doing a lot of thinking about the atonement over the past few days and Its so amazing.  How much it really works in every aspect of our lives.  He knows everything not just our sins but our pains, our heartaches, our hopes, our dreams, our weaknesses.  I have felt it working so much in my life over the last few weeks and I´m so grateful for it.  I know it´s real and it´s hard because I don´t feel like I have the words to even explain it.   It’s just something that is so personal for each one of us.   It’s so amazing how much love he has for us it´s never ending.  Family he is there to help us though everything.  I love you all so much and hope you have the best week ever!!

I love you so much!!

Germany Week 6

Hello Family,

This week was Fantastic! I hope I have time to tell you everything !!   But first, Mom that´s great that you got the call centerjJob … What all do you have to do?    Just answer phones??    Traviee boy I miss your face so much.    Also I hope you get the job at response thatwould be good for you!   Brian no e-mail this week … sad day   we had so much fun last week!   Tell Derrick Atiken congrats for me that’s so exciting !! Dad I hope all is going well for you know that I love you!! Kayla…. hahaha nursery that will be good for you.   Have fun with all those little people. Tell Mindy I say hi and also tell the Baldwin’s I say hi.

So this week was kind of crazy first I went on a split to ktown.    That was okay but it made me love my companion more because the sister I was with has a lot more issues then I would want to deal with.   We get to ktown and we start walking and we have been walking for about 15 to 20 min and I was like how much longer till we get home because it was after 9 by this point and so we needed to be getting home.  She looked at me like I think we are lost … ha-ha    So we then backtracked all the way till we found something that she knew.   But she still could not remember the way home.  So I was like well let’s say a prayer (because I don´t know this place at all).   So then I asked her well do you know the name of the street you live on.  She was like yes  and I was like good let’s ask some people if they know where that street is.   So after asking like 7 different people we found our home. But that was pretty epic to be lost in Germany…  the rest of the time with her was okay.   She was really sick so we only did a half day and then she crashed so I got a lot of study time.

I got to try my first donner this week … it’s this super yummy sandwich like thing oh man so good!! Oh and then yesterday for church we went walking to help one of the members find her way to church but it was raining so hard.  It is a good thing we had umbrellas.   But even with them we got drenched!   I so wanted to take a picture. It was one of those epic missionary moments.   Two missionaries walking down a street with pouring rain epic!!!

Allergies are starting to kick in and I might die from them… ha-ha   No just kidding I´ll be fine but  mom I´m so glad that you sent me so many drugs at the MTC woot woot

So then we went to the temple with Mary!!!!  So Amazing I just love the temple so much and it was so cool to be there.  It’s like going home every time.

Funny story of that trip.   So we got a ride to the temple with some members.   But afterwards they were like can you just take the train home… we were like yes that’s fine. So we had a nice train ride back to Mainz. So my leg is doing much better…. But my companion’s favorite thing to tell me now is Jacob 6:12.   O be wise,what more can I say.  (Whenever I do or have a crazy idea to do things like cartwheels and handstands 🙂

This is our last week together she is going back home and (drum roll …….) I´m going to Freidrichdorfs!!  This is where the temple is so yes I am going to be a temple sister for at least the next 6 weeks. So my new companion’s name is Sister Hanson and she will be finishing training me so that should be fun.   I have met her already and I think we are going to get along just fine.  So I will get to give temple tours and things.  But I think this is happening because I need to learn German….. I won´t have an English ward anymore everything will be in German woot wooot !!   I hope that someday I get to come back to Mainz again after my German is better and work these people again that would be so amazing!

  (Last Day in Mainz)

 

So because both Sister Niemen and I are both leaving it´s going to be an adventure to get all of our stuff to Frankfurt via Train and bus and such.  So we´ll see how that goes .

Well I think that´s it for now we have a lot we need to get done today so we can be ready for this upcoming week!!!

Any who I love you all so very much and hope you have a super fantastic week because I know I will!!! 🙂

Love you all, a million red m & m´s
