How are you doing? I hope all is well with you! :) Thanks for the awesome pictures... they were very entertaining! Ha ha!
The weather in Trondheim is absolutely AMAZING today! (knock on wood) Sister B and I went on a hike this morning along a creek and all the way up the side of a mountain... where we found the Trondheim folk museum which we visited. It has been one of the most amazing p-days EVER! Things in Norway are wonderful - I love it!
So... I feel really bad, but I have nothing really to say. Since I just emailed you on Thursday nothing too exciting has happened since. Ha ha! So just be aware... this is going to be very boring.
Well... We have found many of our long lost investigators in the last few days and I am so grateful for it!
- Ellen (I don't remember if I have mentioned her before, but I found her on the street a few months ago and we gave her a Book of Mormon and invited her to read it. After that we were never able to get a hold of her. Then we found her again on the street and she said that she had felt something special while reading and said she would call us... but never did...) is coming to Family Home Evening with us tonight and we are going to teach her right before! So exciting!!! :)
- Juliana, our miracle from Easter time, is still living. She just has a lot on her plate right now, but is still interested in the Church. That is so happy!
- Brit, or referral from forever ago that didn't want to be baptized because of coffee came to church on Sunday and we taught her during Sunday School- AMAZING!! She is totally coming back next week too. It's just a matter of time before she is baptized. :)
Agnes is still getting baptized. She was supposed to come to church with us yesterday, but couldn't because she was too "in the zone" with her studies. That was upsetting... We are super worried about Satan getting to her and none of the members are willing to help because they don't see the danger... It is so frustrating!!! Anyways... I am not going to even start on that issue... This is a happy email! :)
Birget, our member of whom I have seen a lot of, if you know what I mean... ha ha!, has officially adopted us as her American grandchildren. We have painted her patio, her garage door, and our latest service project was hanging up some wooden horses on her wall... I will have to take a pic and send it to you. It is... interesting! Ha ha! She just loves us though. We love her too. :)
Oh yeah, so we met this girl from California who is Jehovah Witness last week and she wanted to get together and chat. She invited us to the cutest little cafe I have ever seen - Fairytale Cupcakes. It was like a little bite of America and it was WONDERFUL! I got a red velvet cupcake; it was delicious! It had little pearl sprinkles on it. Heavenly! :) But yeah, we had a nice chat about religion and how it has helped us. They have a lot of similar views as we do. They are good people. But the whole time we were talking, I just couldn't help but think how true our church is. We are so blessed to have the whole truth and the priesthood... I love the Gospel! :)
Well... I've got nothing left. :) I hope you have a wonderful week! Love and miss you all! You are the bestest! :)
