|Beautiful night we spent at Sarpsborg Lake|
Family Home Evening at the Nield's! He is the golf pro!
Well another week has gone by and we are now heading towards the tail end of this strangely short transfer. Lots of times I get to this point in the week where I am going to write this post here, and I have no idea what happened this week and what happened two months ago, because it all feels like the same week. But that's okay. First things first, I'm sorry I forgot to send this last week, but HAPPY ANNIVERSARY MOM AND DAD!!!! I hope you two had a wonderful day together and thank you for your wonderful examples of what a marriage should be. You two are the best!

A mission is a journey for yourself as well. We go around and try to teach people in a language that we are trying our best to learn, and trying to tell these people that there is a God and that He loves them. But how do you teach about a person that you do not always feel like you know that well. So this is our conclusion. Our missions are a 1 1/2-2 year adventure of learning faith, patience, and love. You put your "life" on hold and learn more about who you are, and whose you are than ever before. And then you invite others to do the same thing. To learn who they are, and that they are important. And what a journey that is. Do we ever really understand that? And can we ever comprehend that it is a life long journey? It's just magnified for me right now into this little period of emphasized learning. But if you pay attention to it, it's always there.
