June 19 - Sandvika

Hey everyone!

Thanks for your love and support! It was an awesome week! We were able to experience several tender mercies and feel the lord's guiding hand in the work. It is encouraging to see some progress!
We met again with Justo. One of our good member friends, assistant ward mission leader was with us. He is a convert of two years and shared with -- his conversion story especially about the Book of Mormon. It was good for -- to hear and hopefully will get him to start reading in the Book of Mormon.
Another awesome thing about the week is our investigator -- (-- is his romanian name so I will probably use that because it is cool ). Mihai came to church! We met with him on Friday with one of the youth in the ward. The actual lesson didn't go the best. Mihai had several concerns but it worked out because he came to church and wants to learn more. The ward members were really good at welcoming him and talking with him. Elder and Sister Robinsion, the mission office couple were so good and including him in the sunday school lesson. (we went to the english class with him) -- is a good guy.
Another cool highlight of the week was on Thursday. We tried back a potential who said we could come back after a month. We sat down and talked with her outside and answered her questions. She is a teacher at the highschool and loves learning about religions. She asked several good questions and we had a good meeting. She wants missionaries to come back in the fall and line up a time for them to come and do a presentation at the school.
Overall it was a great week, and I'm grateful to be here in Sandvika. I appreciate the support of the members here and it was fun visiting several of them this week. One took us out to IKEA after carrying some furniture he bought. He bought us the Large size of the Large plate of Meatballs, potatoes and gravy. Traditional scandanavia food :) Soooo good!
Thought: President Eyring gave a talk in the recent Women's session of conference about the Holy Ghost. He taught how the Holy Ghost, or the Comforter is God given to bring us peace. But he connected it to the verse from D&C 11:12  And now, verily, verily, say unto thee, put your trust in that Spirit which leadeth to do good—yea, to do justlyto walk humblyto judgerighteously; and this is my Spirit.  President Eyring said, "Most often, the good He will lead you to do will involve helping someone else receive comfort from God." Let us be on the Lord's errand and trust in that spirit which leadeth to do good. Let's comfort those that stand in need of comfort and share the peace offered by the Savior.
Have a good week!
Elder Witt
