So my companion has these super good lectures on Joseph Smith that we listen to sometimes at night and they are super good! They talk about all these stories that others wrote in their journals that were around him, so it has a lot of his personality and relations to others. They are really good lectures. Let me tell you there is so much depth to this gospel and there are some really great talks out there by general authorities. My goal in my Swedish study right now is to memorize several New Testament Scriptures in Swedish. So that has been pretty fun lately.
This week we were able to meet with a lot of less-actives that we have been trying to get a hold of for a while now. One of which was a recent convert who was baptized before I came here. She had gone through some pretty rough things lately and had lost contact with the Church. Well, that had been causing me a lot of heart ache for a while now. But then yesterday as we were on our way to go into town I saw her on the bus! I talked to her and listened to all the things that have been hard in her life lately and talked to her about it all. She said that she felt a lot better after that and would call us soon to meet with her again! Ahh, it was so good. It really was a tender mercy of the Lord.
Well these next two weeks could be pretty crazy. On Thursday I will b in Karlskrona for district meeting, then on slits in Kristianstad. Then I have Stake Conference in Malmö on Saturday and Sunday. Then I will be heading up to Goteborg the Wednesday after that and I might even potentially be going to the Temple in Denmark on the 25th! So a lot of traveling but it will all be fun. Anyway that is what is going on in my life right now. It is starting to get colder and darker here day by day. It feels crazy because you can really tell the difference. God answers prayers everybody! Till next week!
Swedish Word of the Week:
Förbanna - Curse (I learned that one when I was translating in Sunday school)
Photos: The best Ice-cream place in all of Sweden is in Karlskrona and so we go there as a District after District meetings in Karlskrona. Super Good!
