So we were on the road this week from Tuesday morning to late late late Friday night. So it feels like yesterday I was sending an email.... Not even mad!
So Tuesday we had a seven hour car ride to Malmö from Stockholm! and then we went on splits with the ZLs there. Wow the weather is sooooo nice in the South! Malmö is Zion!
I was able to see Bill who is a member that Krebs and I found and taught and then got baptized by Bailey and Brinkworth. Apparently, he is a super awesome member!! He shares the gospel with everyone!! Way to go Bill!!
Our training went well too. It is about building your area and conversion. President focuses on how we need to be converted and what a investigator needs to feel to be converted. Elder Archibald and I gave training about how we can leave our areas better than we found them. It was super good!
One quick funny story :P
So Elder Bradley (from my MTC group and a ZL in Malmö) apparently was really excited for me to come to Malmö because he had a gift for me. "Dude Hemmingsen I have been holding on to this for like 4.5 and months!" Then he threw a T-Shirt at me "Dude It is a shirt with a picture of Iowa and it says home on it!" Well it did say home but the state that he thought was Iowa was actually South Carolina.... hahahahahaha Nice try Elder Bradley!! #classic
Wednesday night we drove 3 hours up to Göteborg and passed out in a hotel.
Thursday we had the same training in Utby and then we went on splits with Elder Albertsen and Featherstone. Those two are the absolute, most fun kids to walk this planet!!! I love you brothas!!
Elder Albertsen and I were on splits and we went by my old Ward mission leader. Yes I was only there for 5 days but Kirk has such a big heart so it was nice to see him. We also saw Prince at the house!! The first thing he said to me was "My brother I thought you went to America? When you go back to America my brother, you have to take me my brother!!"
Hey mom would you be mad if I took my brother Prince home with me? He is either Jamaican or from Nigeria, no one knows.... haha he is so funny!!
On Friday night we took the 5 hour trip back to Stockholm. Elder Archibald and I definitely have a lot of time to chat. We know almost everything about each other. He has this pack of friends back home and I know all of their names. B Tom, D Nel, K Rizz, T Kill, C Bill, Squid, Randell, Merrell, Link Sac, and T duh Money. They made up their nick-names in 6th grade and they stuck all through high school. #newsteam
Here is my spiritual thought for the week.
What is the Blueprint of Christ's Church?" It basically outlines all the organizations and things that Christ did during his ministry and how they are in the Church today. It is super good! Give it a read!
Have a great week everyone!! Happy Valentine's day!! A year ago today I was in Denmark with The Molbaeks! #goodtimes
hej hej :P
