Well let's start at the beginning shall we? :)
I was washing in a nook and I saw a spider. I assumed it was dead, after squealing. (I really really don't like spiders) Nance saw it and said volunteered to clean right there. Problem? IT WAS ALIVE! And it was HUGE!!! I freaked out! And it was bad enough that so did she! After about 15 minutes of me hyperventilating in the corner it was finally killed by the ever triumphant Nance.
That day we also had an adventure of visiting 3 less actives! I love working with less actives, can I just tell you that? I think that they are amazing! It's fun to watch the fire start burning again!
Plus, less actives are the biggest blessings during a ferie. Because they mean that even though no one is out, they are still available, more often than not, and you can still do productive things! It was a giant blessing during a very dead week. Especially with Erlend on vacation.
Then the rest of the week was a blur of mundane, that I don't really recall. It was pretty much the LONGEST week of my mission just WAITING to find out where PORTER is going on his mission! Can you imagine my shock and joy to read this morning that he is going to the TAIWAN TAIPEI MISSION, MANDARIN SPEAKING?! Oh my heavens!! What a great moment! He will be a wonderful missionary! I am so excited for him!!!
Oh I almost forgot!!
What a HUGE blessing it was! (Even though Sundays are by far the most stressful day in a missionaries life...say goodbye to relaxing Sundays, Porter.) The ward was amazing with coming and greeting our wonderful investigators and reaching out to them! Erlends baptism is set for this, and as Eirin left the chapel she asked Nance "how do I become a member of this church?" And now we are meeting with her today, and ! I am telling you when people are prepared, they are prepared! I love it!
|Notice the muffin flying in the air! hahaha|
Life is good! I am so happy to be a missionary here in Norway! I love you all! I miss you all! I'm praying for you all!
PS Also one of the members works at NATO and brought us American greir...some of the stuff I've missed the most.
