Then, on Tuesday we went to Södertälje for a Specialized Zone Training. That was awesome! We learned about conversion and how it is an ongoing process, and how we need to make sure that our new converts have friends in the Church. We also learned about building up our area. So, pretty cool stuff. We then got to talk to President and Sister Beckstrand about anything, so we learned about how they meet, about dating, and all kinds of fun stuff. I love the Beckstrand’s, they are so great!
Then on Wednesday we had a super full day of missionary work. We had lesson after lesson. So that was pretty good. We have a really good set of investigators right now. On Thursday we had an investigator who wanted to show us around Mariefred, a really cool town that is an hour and a half from Eskilstuna. Mariefred was a crazy adventure! Our investigator's name is Lukas and he is probably around 15 years old. He was super classy. He took us to the ruins of an old church. He said "This church is 5x older than America", it's crazy. He also took us to a super fancy restaurant and then paid for all four of us! Then he took us all out to get hot chocolate and paid for us again! Apparently his family is pretty rich. Super cool kid. Also, in Mariefred there is a castle that is still owed by the king of Sweden, and we were able to go see it. What a super cool castle! It has a mot, a drawbridge, and everything! That was a fun adventure.
Then the rest of the week we had more full days of missionary work. A lot of our investigators are doing really well! We had Branch Conference yesterday and we sang for it. We sang "Brightly Beams our Father's Mercy" I think that went really well. We also had two investigators there! So I would have to say all is well here! We got transfer calls on Saturday and it looks like I will be staying here. However, Äldste Linchako will be transferring so I will be getting a new companion.
