On Tuesday we went on splits with the Gubbängen Elders. I went to the town of Gubb!! I was with Elder Liddle. Elder Liddle is an awesome missionary, we worked super hard and had a great time. They had a few lessons planned but we spent most of the day out talking to people. I absolutely love just going out and talking to people about the gospel. You meet people from all over the place with all different types of histories and stories. It is super good!
Elder Liddle is amazing and Gubbängen is a great place!!
On Wednesday Elder Bradshaw and I spent a good time finding people too. Our most positive investigators kinda became less positive this week so that means we GET to find some new ones!!
We taught Jing. He is doing really well but just not as well as we want. He lives with his girlfriend and long story short, they can't get married for 1 year. The reason is that in Chinese culture, if someone in your family dies, you are not allowed to celebrate anything for 3 years to show respect. Jing's mom died two years ago so they can't get married for another year.... It really bummed me out because Jing is a great guy. We'll still keep meeting with them but just won't be focusing on them as much.. sad day...
On Thursday we went on splits in Södertälje. Elder Larson came to Täby. Elder Larson was a greenie in Boden when I was in Skellefteå so we had a good time walking down memory lane. He has grown into a wonderful leader. His Swedish is absolutely amazing and he is an all around great missionary. Wow we have some studs in this mission!
On Saturday we went out to a members to help her build a wall out of branches and what not. The wall was for keeping wild boars out of her yard... jaha! Haha but that was super fun tho and I always love doing a little service!
Sunday was super good as normal. I love taking the sacrament every week and I can feel the difference when I come prepared to take a sacrament and when I am not. I get some much more out of the talks and can feel His love stronger in my life. Ah, the church is so good!
I can't believe that summer is rolling around. The weather that we have now in Sweden is the weather that I remember from when I was home. It is crazy. Oh and the best part of the week is I got to see the man Brock "The Rock" Johnson today!! Brock has an internship here in Sweden and he was in Stockholm today!! I missed him soooo much!! Love you bro!!
Sister Beckstrand told me this week she reads my blog so I thought to give her a S/O... Hey Sister Beckstrand!!! #superdown

Have a good week! Stay happy and look for the positive
