Berlin Bound

On Tuesday, Feb 13, at 9:30 am Elder Hays boarded a Delta plane in SLC and headed to Boston, Amsterdam and then Berlin.  Brandon called from the Boston airport.  It was so great to hear his voice.  He had a missionary moment on the flight as he read the Book of Mormon with a college student sitting next to him.  She promised to let more missionaries visit her.  Brandon was thrilled to say the least. Here are some pictures Sister Kosak first posted on the Germany Berlin Mission Blog.

Elder Hays' trainer is Elder Guiccone.  We've heard great things...
Elder Hays then went with other missionaries into Berlin to teach the gospel!

Here is the email we received the day after he arrived. . .

Dear Brother and Sister Hays,
We are pleased to announce that your son, Elder Brandon Scott Hays, is safely with us in the Berlin Mission. We have had the opportunity to get to know him, and he is ready and excited to be here. Sister Kosak and I look forward to working with him and will do all that we can to help him serve a happy and successful mission. Elder Hays’s first companion will be Elder Guccione, and they will work together in Groitzsch for the next several weeks. This is his current mailing address:

Kirche Jesu Christi HLT

04539 Groitzsch
We have all discussed the mission goals and agreed that we will start right, work hard, and finish strong in order to fulfill our purpose to invite others to come unto Christ.
We, along with your son, appreciate the support which you give through your weekly letters and daily prayers in his behalf. Thank you for raising your son so that he can be part of this amazing work.
For a glimpse inside the mission, including occasional pictures of your missionary, you can check the blog we maintain at http://germanyberlinmission2012-15.blogspot.com. If you ever have questions, you are welcome to e-mail me at: 2010879@ldschurch.org. I’ve included a picture of Elder Hays, his companion, Elder Guccione, Sister Kosak, and me.
May the Lord bless you in all that you do.
