Well this week was rather jazz!
We had MLC on Tuesday and it was awesome! Our focus was the new Easter initiative we received from the Church. President and Sister Beckstrand trained us on the hope that we receive from Christ. Elder Archibald and I talked about the Plan of Salvation in relation to the Easter Message and how we can use it as missionaries. I think it was the best MLC I have been to. The Sweden Stockholm Mission has been blessed with some great leadership. They are so good!!
We met with Jasmine. Good news! She has been praying that her husband would let her come to church and she came this week! I have never seen someone so happy to be at church!! Jasmine is so good!!
On Thursday we had Zone training. The ZLs here in Stockholm did a great job. Everyone seems hyped for the new initiative. That night Elder Archibald and I took a trip down to Göteborg. We got invited by Felix Sahlin to come over for dinner. Felix has been home from his mission 2 months now. If you all don't remember, Elder Archibald and I were in a tri-pan with him his last transfer. We have missed him dearly so it was great to see him! He has plans to be coming to the USA this summer!! I won't be home yet but he will actually be driving through Siouxland!!!! How cool is that!?!?!
On Thursday, we had Zone Training in Göteborg. Once again, those elders did a mighty fine job. After zone conference, Elder Halterman and I did some exchanges. Last transfer, Elder Halterman was my District Leader. I miss that guy!! Something that I have learned to love on my mission is good conversation. Elder Halterman just thinks in a way that no one does. I love it!
Friday night we drove half way back to Stockholm and stayed the night in Jönköping. Saturday morning we had to get up at 5am to get to a lesson on time. Good old Elder Nelson woke up at 5am with us to make breakfast. Thanks bro!!
The lesson we had on Saturday was with Jing. Jing has become a little more comfortable. He knows what he needs to do but can't take the step in faith. We were very bold and blunt with him. He is a great guy and once he comes around, he'll be a bishop.
Well that was the weeks events duders! We have a big next few weeks in front of us. This week we'll be driving to Umeå and next week is Zone Conference. I have never felt so tired in my life but I have never had so much joy in my life either. The fruit of the gospel is peace and joy.

Church is true ;)
