Hei Hei, Sept 18, 2013Well another week has come and gone, and that is just plain hard to believe. With this next week comes my 5 month mark of being a missionary! How weird is that! See mom, it's flying by! The main thing that happened this week is that the whole mission is just plain stressed. It's kind of ridiculous!
So,Sister Landry and Sister Hornback came. That was good. We found a lot of people that were willing to at least give us their information so that we can get in contact with them later. So that was pretty great. And then when we were out bonking we ran into a lady and were able to teach her right then and there, so that was a huge blessing! It was really exciting and it was good to teach again! I've missed that!
Yesterday we taught relief society. That was awesome. If I thought that teaching relief society was scary back home, in English, it's ten times scarier here. Mostly just cause you're trying to lead a discussion and you yourself don't always understand what is being said...so it was interesting. But it was good. It was funny because for part of it we ended up speaking in Norwegian and then saying what we just said in English, trying to find someone to translate. It was amusing! And such a blessing to learn from the beautiful women in our ward!
We had a really good discussion about becoming who God would have us be. And how we have to turn our lives over to him so that He can shape us into whoever He can best utilize. I know that it can be painful, sometimes we just plain don't want to change. But it's for the best when it comes from the Lord. We can help certain people, we can enjoy our lives to the fullest, and we can overcome any challenge with the Lords help. I know that. I love you all, I pray for you! I miss you! I think about you often, and am thankful for the support and love you have shown me, and continue to show me! Have the best week you've ever had!!
