This week went soooo fast. Now that I have a set schedule for everything, it goes so fast. This place is great and all but I just want to be in Sweden! We have been learning lots of grammar and conjugations this week and it is coming more naturally but it is still hard. Seven hours of language study isn't exactly the best thing ever hahaha. We had some good devotionals this week but idk who the people were and the topics were about Temples and repentance. One of my fav quotes of the week was " The MTC is like an open fire hydrant, there is a lot to swallow but you mainly just hurt your face."
I really like all of my teachers but I have this teacher named Brother Marchant and he is so funny! His nickname is gmoney13! Also, he was trying to show our class a scripture in the Book of Mormon that talked about the importance of having investigators feel the spirit but he accidentally showed us 3 Nephi 12:27 that says don't commit adultery! hahaha
This week we also had a dress up day for each day of the week
Sweater Swag Saturday
Fresh 2 Death Sunday
Wednesdays we wear pink
So that was fun ;)
Saturday was also a very interesting day... Aldste Bouton kicked an Elder's shin while playing soccer and tore and the tendons/ligaments in his foot... the dotor's office was closed until Monday so we basically carried him everywhere until he could get crouches. He can't walk for 2.5 weeks so this will be awesome... Not only did that happen but Treat, Peterson and I all broke our cards that open all the doors to the buildings and we couldn't get them fixed until Monday. We had no way to open doors all weekend.. awesome.
Now for the more spiritual stuff. This week I was reading from 3 Nephi 22 and I really liked werses 14-16. They talk about even if it seems like evil is harming God's work, God created all things and He is in control. No matter how many clumps of potatoes get thrown at me while I am in Sweden or however many people try to tell me I am wrong, God has a plan and that plan is going to come to pass no matter how much Satan doesn't want it to.
I love you all so much! I miss you a bunch but the mission life is the best life... well at least for two years ;) See y'all soon! Take care!
I am serving a mission because I feel that I have blessed so much by the Lord to have been raised in a loving family where gospel principals are taught. I do not know why I am so lucky to have been born into our faith but I know that this church is true and that the Lord needs me to serve a mission in Sweden. I have been preparing my whole life for these next to years and I know it is what I need to do. I hope to be an instrument in the Lords hand as i serve my mission. I know without a doubt that this gospel is true; I wouldn't be serving a mission if I didn't!
