Well, I got a Transfer call and I am going to Växjö! It's apparently a tiny branch down south. It will be fun, I am in a tiny branch now so it won't be anything new. I am a little sad to transfer from Eskilstuna. Our Investigator we have been teaching finally picked a date and is doing really well! She is totally getting baptized. I have taught her everything so the next missionary is pretty much going to inherit a baptism. But, I am super happy for her! We had promised her before that we wouldn't push a baptismal date on her. She said she would pray about a date, but wasn't getting promptings on a day that felt right. Well, we then had a lesson on Tuesday and we were going to teach her about the Ten Commandments when she had said that she had been having a bad day. We talked to her about it and read to her about Lot's Wife and not looking back. We then taught her about how great it is to be baptized and be able to start fresh again. I then got prompted to set a baptismal date for the last week of June. It sounded perfect in my head because it’s the week the sun is in the sky the longest. So I said to her, "I know we promised not to push a date on you, but you have been taught all the lessons now, can I make a suggestion for the last week of June to get baptized?" She then smiled at me and said that she had asked God to have the missionaries to pick a date today. She then said that the date sounded perfect! We then all got really excited. So she will be getting baptized (hopefully/probably) on June 21! Which is awesome/sad because I will not be there. But it was wonderful to be able to teach her everything!
In my new companion in Växjö is an Elder from Finland. So that will be fun. Apparently I will be about 3 hours away from the nearest other Missionary so that will be crazy. We also had a Zone Training this week that was pretty good. We talked a lot about going back to the basics and planning right. It was super good! This was probably one of the best weeks of my mission! We contacted a lot, we got a lot of lessons, as well as our investigators were in Church and loved it! We then had dinner with the branch President and two of our investigators yesterday and it was a really fun time. I am really happy with the area right now. I am happy to say that I am leaving this area better than I found it. :) It will be hard to leave Eskilstuna. I have really learned to love it here. It is such a great branch and great investigators. I have to say that I have seen so many miracles here. It will be hard, but I am looking forward to Växjö as well. The gospel does change people's lives. We as members, it's not a matter of if miracles will come, it's about when. I love you all!
