This week I also got to see the Norrsken (Northern Lights)!!! Ahh!!! It was soo cool!! We saw them on Tuesday night we got a text in our Zone group message saying that they saw the northern lights; we looked out and couldn't see them. Then our District leader, Äldste Downing, said he could see them. So we ran outside at about 10 o'clock and we could see them! It looked like a green pillar of light gradually falling down, and then growing stronger till you see what looks like green fire dancing in the sky.
It is just wonderful. Then the next day we took the car up to the top of a mountain at about 9 and saw the Northern lights again! This time they were even better, it would go across the entire sky and would just dance around. Äldste Downing got some good photos with his camera. Another reason why Sundsvall is the best!
Seeing the Northern Lights was an answer to my prayers. I had been praying that I would see the northern lights since I got my mission call. However, I did not expect I would see them so soon into my mission. That was a lesson for me. I think I had gotten it in my head that God answers our prayers over time. But this time God answered my prayer pretty much as soon as possible. I learned that sometimes God will answer our small and humble prayer was answered right away. Of course this is less common, but prayers can be answered right away. Sometimes all it takes one to humility ask God. "Ask, and ye shall receive".
I will have to tell you about my Daily Routine and comp later. P-days are the most stressful days because there is so much you have to get done. The leaves are changing and the days are slowing getting shorter. I love you all!
