Monday and Tuesday were all just saying goodbye to people and taking last minute pictures of things and people. On Wednesday I was all packed up and moved. I had to get up pretty early in the morning to catch the train. About an hour and a half later, I was sitting in my new area, and had met my new companion. Elder Johanson is a super cool dude. He works really hard and we get along really well. I've only been super happy in the week I've spent with him. But yeah, Wednesday had us out and around talking to people about truth and God and things like that. We were stopped by a couple of Persians who wanted to know who we were, so we told them all about it. In the evening we were part of a gospel principles class. It was super good. We had two new converts with us. The two new converts are super cool. Shout out to them because I know at least Pia reads this!
Thursday we were out working like usual, talking to people. Then we took a train to a place called Flen! It's in our area. And it's even smaller than Kholm. But we talked to people out there for a while and then we came back. Talked to more people and then we went to institute! It was cool.
We had district meeting on Friday. Our district is pretty loaded. Some of my favorite people in the world work really close to me. District meeting went really well, and then we ate at this super good Mongolian place. I really like food from that part of the world. I should figure out how to make more of it. I ordered train tickets for a few people in the district who hadn't done that yet and didn't want to because it's annoying and then we came home. And talked to people. We do that a lot. Then we went to visit Per, who is a less active man who promised to come back in two weeks. He's a pretty cool dude.
On Saturday we went to the TEMPLE! I haven't been to the temple in so long. Like a year. And we were able to a session in Swedish (super cool!), and then we helped out in the baptistry where we had a couple of new converts doing baptisms. We were able to do some confirmations and then we did witnessing. It was super great. I love the temple. It's just a really great place. Anyway, we came back from the temple and had a couple lessons and dinner.
Sunday was super good. We went to church and had some super cool people show up. The town here is super small. It's really fun though. Good branch of twentyish. We had 25 in church and they were feeling good. We had two investigators in sacrament meeting and also a less active man. After church we went home for lunch but immediately turned around to go back because a man said he wanted to meet. And then he said he would be baptized! We're super excited and we’re praying a lot for him.
Anyway, that was my week. It was super good. I hope everyone has a great one! Thanks for all that you do!
