We had a dinner with this family who just got back from St. George, Utah. We shared a message about the Book of Mormon and then gave them all a book to give to their friends. Member missionary work at its finest!
On Tuesday we had a beautiful specialized zone training about testimonies. We had many opportunities to share personal experiences and it was probably the most spiritual conference I have ever been apart of. It was beautiful. Elder Archibald, Sahlin and the Beckstrands are so in tune with the spirit. I love them all!
I went on splits with Elder Halterman this week. We went ham and cheese and had a good day!! At the end of the day Elder Halterman said a prayer that we would have "something cool happen" and then the next family we contacted initially told us to Buzz off but by the time we were done talking to them, they straight up begged for a Book of Mormon and wanted to know more. That was pretty cool ;)
On Thursday we had a big Thanksgiving dinner with lots of missionaries and with the a couple who are over all the young single adults in Stockholm. It was a super riktig american style Thanksgiving! Super good!
We wrapped up our teaching with Barbara and she is going to get baptized on Wednesday. She is such a funny lady and yesterday in church, se was sitting by her friend Aina and then looked over at us and blew us a kiss. ( she is 70 yrs. old) She is so great!! We are way excited for Wednesday!
We had this really cool experience on Friday. We were walking home and stopped and talked to this lady. She seemed very depressed. Come to find out, she told us that literally 30 seconds before, she asked God to send her someone who could help improve her life. It was amazing to see how the Lord puts us in the paths of those who need it.
Sunday was crazy as usual. We went over to Pablo's for dinner. He is the most loving and humble guy I have ever met in Sweden. Everybody give a quick S/O to Pablo in your next tweet!! #TeamPablo
In the spirit of it being Thanksgiving I just want to thank my parents and my family for their love and support they have always given me. They have always been at my ball games and always lent a hand when I needed it. I also want to thank Elizabeth, Kate, Ellie and Claire for being the best sisters I could have ever asked for. Thanks for putting up with all my teasing and loving me unconditionally. You six are the people I need most in my life, forever! You're the bomb!
Have a good week!!
