This week we had the missionaries from Skellefteå up here for work overs. Their names are Elder Mecham and Elder Thacker. Elder Mecham is from my MTC group and Elder Thacker was actually in my District 2 transfers ago. So we all know each other pretty well. While we were on splits we got to see the Northern Lights again. When Elder Mecham and I were driving back from our Russian investigator out to the country side when we saw what looked like clouds and then they began to glow as the northern lights do and we pulled over and watched them. Elder Mecham had a super sweet camera that could take pictures of the northern lights so we were able to get some pretty sick pictures. We then when to pick up the other Elders and went out to go take pictures. Elder Mecham figured out a way to get us to be able to take pictures with us in the photo! Super cool Defiantly the highlight of the Week!
Mmm... I am try to think of what else happened this week... I got an email from Sarah! Remember her? She is the one I taught who got baptized in Eskilstuna! Well she is doing great! She apparently has a calling now as Young women leader and has several of her friends taking the lessons from missionaries. She is awesome! She told me about how great General Conference was! Ahh! It really makes me ssoo happy to hear how she is doing! She is apparently so strong as a member right now! She said this to me in her email "We got to have a lesson with my friend!! It was the best ever. The spirit was so strong and there was so much love and light, she received the Book of Mormon and told us she was excited about reading it! There are so many people looking for the truth and there way back to Jesus Christ and I'm just so happy to be a pioneer in this movement here in Sweden. The second harvest is happening as I write and so many blessings is coming because of it! I love this church and how it helps people to transform their life!! How it feeds people with spiritual intelligence and nursing for our souls!!" AHH! So she is doing awesome! She is so powerful when she speaks to people so I am sure that she is being an awesome missionary out in the world!
Anyway, I guess those are just some of the happy things that are happening in my life right now. I love my new area and I love being a missionary! It has been so great. Great things are coming for all of us I can feel it! I love you all!
