Thanks for your love and support. It was a great week and I'm feeling much better. The 24/7 sun is officially gone. It is crazy to think that when I got to Tromsø everything was covered with 3 feet of snow and the northern lights were out at night and now we are beginning to lose thesun. Time sure goes by fast! I'm so grateful for the opportunity I have to be serving in such a beautiful city with such amazing people. Transfer calls are this upcoming and I will most likely be leaving Tromsø on the .
For more exciting news, -- is getting baptized! She wants me to baptize her so she wanted to move the date from the to the 13th. We are really excited for her and her decision to follow Jesus Christ in her life. Unfortunately, Her husband -- didn't show up to our stop smoking lesson. He wants more time to think about it. It was sad to find that out but I'm confident things will work out for them.
We alsomet with --. We reviewed the baptismal interview questions and set the official baptismal date for . She talked about how the gospel has helped her in her life. Before she started coming to church she said her life was going in a bunch of different directions but since coming to church everything seems to be falling in place and now she has one path in front of her. She also explained how her daughter came home from primary one day saying "Mom I know how to pray in Norwegian now!" It is truly a blessing to see the gospel bless the lives of other people.
We had great church meetings. I don't know if I told you but a recent return missionary from Sweden moved to Tromsø to work for the next 6 months. He now is one of the school teachers. He is awesome and is always willing to go on teaches with us. Testimony meeting was really powerful. A family from Bodø was visiting. -- came to church. Bianca her sister is out of town and so It was awesome to see -- coming on her own. We also visited with Alexander and Linda. Great Sabbath day!
Updates on -- . He is out of town still. We will call him today. Kurt is also out of town and comes backor . Good things are happening in Tromsø!
I'm grateful for the Church. I'm grateful for our Savior Jesus Christ, whose grace is sufficient to help us, to heal us, and change us. His atonement makes it possible for us to return to Heavenly Father. I hope you all have a great week. I love you all. I know the church is true!
