|Very Spicy Dinner!|
Wow this week was one crazy ride. We did about a million and a half things so it felt like forever but also like it never happened if that makes any sense at all. We had transfers this week and so I got my new companion Elder Luke. He is a really good solid missionary and I am looking forward to working with him and also in the last letter I said he was in the same "ground" as elder Johnson and Jones but really its the same "group" as we say in English haha. I just kinda threw him in the deep end to begin with, we jumped on a train and I told him I would see him after his lesson on the train and then went to sit next to someone else... I know when that happened to me for the first time in Stockholm I didnt really know what to do but he went right over and started talking with someone on the train and eventually taught them as well! That is why the trains are cool but he really knows his stuff and I have been super impressed. He is from Saint George Utah and good friends with Elder Jones too so Saint George just loves me I guess.
After Elder Luke came on Wednesday we went and met a new investigator named Robel. He is super cool and he even fed us. But he fed us some of the spicies food that I have ever had in my entire life... no joke we felt absolutely awful after haha I knew when I finished the plate that I had won the battle... but definitely not the war haha. We were a little sick the next couple of days after that but that is okay!! We are visiting him again this week so we will see where that goes. He also came to one session of general conference with us so we have really high hopes for him.
We had quite a few new names come across this week and were abelt o get three new investigators that we are really excited to meet with more! we will see this week where they go progression wise but they are incredibly solid when we taught them. We are definitely seeing a lot of blessings here in Stockholm and we will continue to see more for sure.
General Conference was a fantastic experience and we were in the Gubbängen chapel for that. We had Robel come for a session and then Idowu as well and it was just a really good experience for them to see the apostles and prophets speak to us. They spoke a ton this time about families and marriage so to all of you YSA out there... you have to get married... now. (Just to clarify I am not a YSA I am a missionary... so that was not applying to me). But I do want to say that I am so grateful for the family that I have and was raised in. We see and talk to people everyday that their lives would have been so different if they had grown up with gospel principles. It really is easier to live with them and there is so much more love in the family when we have the simple truths like we can be together forever with our families. I am really grateful for conference and that I had the chance to watch it. I have been in the conference center I have felt the spirit that they have and I felt it again this last weekend. They are called of God and they really are prophets and apostles TODAY that if we listen to we can know how to guide and direct our lives for the future. I love this gospel and all of the small and simple truths we can find in it. I hope everyone has a fantastic week and look at the talk by Elder Holland on the Sunday morning session... wow.
