So this week was a little crazy (as usual) but mainly transfers. I ended up having to take a bus instead of a train to Stockholm. It wasn't that bad but I had to drag all of my stuff around a lot more and that is honestly just the worst!
But Gubbängen is way awesome. We live in this studio flat on the top floor of our apartment and we can climb out of our window to a roof top patio. Like it is so awesome!!!
My companion is Elder Dahle. He is a good kid too. He is from Florida and has been on the mish about 20 months. He has some good Swedish and so I am excited to learn! There isn't a ton going on in the area but we found this dude from the middle east and he came to church on Sunday! His name is shady, He is a bro!
Sunday was super nice. I had 1 responsibility in church. ONE. hahaha like I love my like small branches and all but it is so nice to be in a functioning ward! There were about 80 people in church but about 40 people are on vacation!
We take the subway for the most part because our car got taken away about two transfers ago because of budget costs. At least I don't have to worry about scorpions :P #IsaacDavid
Our Zone is also very close to one another so it is super weird to see lots of missionaries around! I have not been around lots of missionaries for like 8 months! It'll be nice to see some familiar faces :)
I started the Book of Mormon over again in Swedish recently. I always find the stories of Nephi, Lehi, Laman, and Lemuel so interesting and how Laman and Lemual were so numb to the spirit. Check it:
7 And they said: Behold, we cannot understand the words which our father hath spoken concerning the natural branches of the olive tree, and also concerning the Gentiles.
8 And I said unto them: Have ye inquired of the Lord?
9 And they said unto me: We have not; for the Lordmaketh no such thing known unto us.
10 Behold, I said unto them: How is it that ye do not keepthe commandments of the Lord? How is it that ye willperish, because of the hardness of your hearts?
11 Do ye not remember the things which the Lord hathsaid?—If ye will not harden your hearts, and ask me infaith, believing that ye shall receive, with diligence inkeeping my commandments, surely these things shall bemade known unto you.
Because of their lack of prayer and unwillingness to know, they couldn't accept God's will!
I love you guys so much!! Sorry this email is lame!!! Ha det bra! äldste hemmingsen
