Hello to everyone! I think you'll probably notice that I didn't really email anything last week due to a trip to Ales Stenar. Sorry about that, but I hope you enjoy the pictures from it. They're pretty cool. If you can't really understand it from the pictures, think viking Stonehenge. It was super fun.
   Also on that trip I was given the joyous opportunity to taste lakrits sill! It was amazing!* There was some super cool sites and we were able to play soccer in the middle of it all. Super fun trip! If you're ever in Skåne for whatever reason, I would highly recommend going there.
   Other things that happened this week were the teaching! We had a great time teaching some of our awesome investigators. I'll have to tell you about them sometime. We have a young woman, she's fifteen and super funny. She's from Afghanistan, but she's been here for five years or so, so she fits in really well. She'll do well in the ward. We have a Kenyan woman, she's rock solid. She fits right into the African gathering that we have going on here. We have a Chilean woman that we work with, and there are a few more. Yay. Things are happening.
   We were actually in Göteborg on Friday for a conference... That was pretty fun. I was able to see some old friends that I haven't seen in a while. We talked about language and how to apply that kinda thing into the work. Not comparing ourselves to others was also a thing they talked about. It was a good conference.
   Anyway, we have people on track and people that we have a great time teaching! I hope everyone has a great week!

*For clarification, sill is herring, lakrits is licorice, and I almost threw up.

Here is some of that sill stuff.
Some rocks.

Hello to all the people,
   This week was a good week. We did things. They were good things. We did work and talked to people and taught people and then they wanted us to come back, and that was nice.
   I'm going to tell you a story. We were at a lesson one day this week and we decided to check our travel to the next lesson. So then we did. We were shocked to find that the bus ride was going to be an hour and a half long. We had about fifteen minutes to be there. So then we called the other elders and they have a car. So they drove us to our appointment (which was in the middle of the nowhere) and then we were a little late. But the appointment went really well, but then we had to leave and get to our next appointment. So then we got onto the bus and then we were on that bus fffffffffffffffooooooooooorrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeeeeevvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrr........... we got off and to our next thing, but the whole middle of the nowhere deal was super crazy. And it was funny. Well, now it's funny. We should've taken a picture.
   Anyway, I hope you all have a great week!

Dear the people,
This week was transfer week. Allow me to do a short mathematical proof.

Transfer week = -Time
Time = Limited
Emailing time = Not much


Transfer week+emailing time = 0

Or something like that.

I have a new companion! His name is Elder DeMordaunt. He's pretty cool. He's from Eagle, ID. Check out the pictures for more of a physical description.
We had a really good week though! We have another baptismal date for a month in the future, so we will see if this young man actually gives it the effort he needs too find the truth.
That's probably the biggest thing.
I hope you all have a great week!
