October 26, 2015

This week. I'm just going to run through some points of interest.
We played billiards with Pia! It was super fun!
We had Hemafton like we usually do. We made flygande jakob! My fav!
Bunch of street lessons on Tuesday.
We had a kneeling prayer with about twenty or thirty people at one time. It was super cool and the spirit was super strong.
We had a super weird day Wednesday. We had a great gospel principles class and had a great time, but one of our investigators who was going to be baptized this week moved to next week, so pray for that one.
We have started help teach a girl English with one of the people we meet with. It's pretty fun.
Here is a conversation that happened this week on the street:
   We stop a lady and tell her who we are and ask if she would like to talk.
   "Jag tycker inte om kyrkan." She says.
   "Okej, men ha det så bra!" Says we.
   She points to the Book of Mormon as we walk away, "Lekstuga!"
   We just kinda crack up as we walk off.
   "Sanningen!" She shouts after us, trying to get her point across that we have life all wrong.
   "Okej!" We say as we keep going.
People like to tell we're wrong and they do it in some super funny ways. Just stay positive and remember God loves everyone and some of the things people say are really funny. It can be really sad too, but I choose to see it as funny. Life would be way too hard if it were all sad.
Friday was super weird because Elder Johanson was in Stockholm for a meeting and I was with ELDER JONES for the day. It's probably the last time I see him until the US. We went to Södertälje for district meeting and then Norrköping for the rest of the day. It was super fun and we even got things done!
Saturday, we found a super positive guy that I'm super excited to work with.
We also got transfer calls. Elder Johanson is going to Borås. Elder Nilsson is coming to Kholm. Crazy stuff. Should be super fun.
We had four investigators in church yesterday!
A member family had us over for dinner and it was super good. "Gratis är gott!"
And that's pretty much the week! If you ever have questions, let me know!

  1. This was a really great week, we had so much fun. I didnt know about the lady in the streets though. That was super funny. I will pray for Kenneth for sure so he will get baptized. Keep up your awesome work, and i am sooooo happy you get to stay here six more weeks.
