Happy 1st of May! It's crazy that May has already rolled around. It will be nice to get a little bit better weather here. This week has been kind of long not going to lie. But it has been really fun so that is good. It just been long because usually we have Zone training this week, but President Beckstrand was in Germany so we couldn't have Zone training yet. So that just kind of made it a weird week. But a nice thing about this week we had eight member meals! That was crazy! It was really good to get to know all the members in the ward better. I don't think we will get feed as much this week though so that is good also. The Ward here is great, and I am really excited to get to know them all better.
This week was super cool because we were able to meet with our investigators Ali, Sampur, and Medhi. They are all 16 and come from Afghanistan. We taught them all the first three lessons and one of them agreed to a baptismal date. Then this week we taught them the Law of Chasity and Word of Wisdom and they all agreed to follow them and they all said they wanted to be baptized! So that is super cool! The only problem is that they all want to get baptized together and they all actually live in different Ward bounties. So it will be complicated to work with the other missionaries and with other wards to do it so that they can all be baptized together. But they are super chill and flexible so it will all work out. They said that they just have a special feeling when they meet with us. That's been really cool.
This week we had Church at 2 o'clock because another stake was going to have stake conference in our building. But, fun fact was that Sarah from Eskilstuna gave a talk in her stake conference! It's like a dream to hear about how solid of a member she is now. I mean I just remember teaching her and it being so stressful because she was just so positive but some points of the gospel just didn't click with her. Now she is giving talks in stake conference so that is super cool! She hasn't even been a member for over a year now, but she is just super great.
This week was also Valborg! It is the tradition they have here in Sweden where they Light a big bond fire. It was super cool. We weren't able to find where all the other missionaries went so it was a really Chill Valborg.
This coming week is going to be crazy. On Tuesday I will be going to mission leadership council with the Beckstrand’s. Apparently we will be going to the temple, which will be different from past MLCs from what I hear. I am really interested to hear what they about what the mission needs. They we are going to have Zone training on Thursday to teach the rest of the Zone. Then on Saturday and Sunday we are going to have stake conference. So it is going to be a busy week. But that is also good.
So yea that is my week. Sorry if my email was a little all over the place. It was hard for me to focus this week on my email. Tack!
