Krebs has been sick this week and I have been impressed with his diligence to keep working even when he isn't feeling so well. What a trooper!
This week on Tuesday, I went on splits with my main bro Äldste Beus. He is from Arizona and goes home in three days! crazy! Anyway we had a super good time and had a good lesson with Diego and his two boys. We were planning on having family night with them on Monday but Diego blåsted... So we went there on Tuesday and had family night! We played scum with them and I have not heard/seen their family laugh/smile in a few weeks! Woot!
This week we also went to the Vaissi's for dinner and after dinner, Mikko Vaissi was showing us pictures from when he was on a mission. He is from Finland and served in Sweden too! It was super cool to see pics from mish life wayyyy back when like my parents served ;) but in Sweden ;) Things are a lot different now .
This week was also Saint Lucia day in Sweden! Lucia is like a Jul (Christmas) tradition here in Sweden were you go to a huge Cathedral and they do this singing thing. It was super cool! I'll send pics!
This Sunday was probably one of my most favorite days on the mish. So before Sacrament meeting, Brother Isaksen (my favorite person in Sweden) asked me if I would give him a blessing. I was very humbled to be asked by him but I was also kinda nervous because what can Äldste Hemmingsen say to comfort Brother Isaksen? The whole Sunday I kept on having the feeling that I needed to mention the temple in the blessing. That night, after I had given him the blessing, he told how he had been having the same thoughts and feelings about the temple. Blessings are guided by the spirit!! I expressed my gratitude to both Brother and Sister Isaksen because they seriously are the best couple ever! It was just a very sweet moment and both of them cried a little... and maybe Äldste Hemmingsen too ;)
Random miracle from the week-
So long story short, I loaned my bus card to an investigator so he could get burritos but I forgot to get it back from him that night. The next day we were trying to get a hold of him for about two hours. I had done everything that I possibly could to get a hold of this jabronie.... except say a prayer lol.. during my prayer, he sent me a text :) #prayerrocks
Well guys I looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove you all! Have a ganska fint vecka!!
