Trip To A Finnish Castle

May 12, 2014

Hello everyone! It was so much fun to see you guys on skype!!! O man it was awesome. You all looked great and the babies are all so big I can't believe it! Indie looks like a full on member of the senior primary with all those adult teeth now and baby Rosie is even chubbier and cuter than I imagined haha Max's hair cut is even more stylish than mine and Wilson and Theo were just cracking me up the whole time! I miss all you guys! Well it was sad to hang up, that's always rough but like you said mom that's two skype calls done! We're half way there! I can't believe that in terms of General conferences and calls home I'm halfway done. Pretty crazy! Well yes we had a really good week here! We have found a couple of new investigators and they are all pretty solid! One guy is somebody that the sisters found and taught twice but then they had trouble getting solid appointments with him and they would have to take a third woman since it's a single man so they gave his info to us and we have been trying to stop by, but haven't been able to get a hold of him but finally we got something set up with him and went to his place on Friday. He is from Cameroon but speaks Finnish and he has been reading the Book of Mormon for the past month and praying about it every time he reads and he basically said that baptism is a super big comitment so he wants to investigate until he is positive that this is right, but when he feels that God has answered his prayers then he will be baptized! This other guy is a man that elder Anderson and I met about 6 weeks ago on the street and we gave him a Book of Mormon in Turkish and he was super willing to meet but he was just never home when we tried and thought something had happened. But then last week Elder Rossiter and I were walking towards his house and he came walking out! We talked to him and he told us that he has been reading the Book of Mormon and likes it alot! We got his number and found out where he works (he owns a little restaurant right next to our apartment so we can stop by anytime) but he is very interested and even told us that if he joins our church his girlfriend would have to join also haha so we told him that was fine with us! 
Then we had a good lesson with our other investigator who is trying to quit drinking and smoking and he's doing alright but is just having a hard time quitting obviously. He told us that he believes in us and the church to help him quit but it's just been rough for him. We still feel good about him though and are praying hard for him. But we also had some fun stuff going on this week, on Tuesday we went to Tampere for a zone meeting and then came back Tuesday night and went over to a member's house for dinner and it was super fun! They have 6 kids and a super cute little baby and all that so it was fun! Then yesterday we were at a members house to skype and I got to hang with them and eat with them while elder Rossiter was skyping and they are super cool! Just an extremely nice older couple and their son was over there as well who is in my ward and he has a bunch of kids and suff and we just all chatted about the history of Finland and cool stuff like that haha they are so sweet and told me to tell my family that they say hello haha. Well we should have another good week this week! We are doing splits tomorrow and I have a cool thing planned. A few weeks ago I met this lady on a bus who is an english teacher and she invited us to come to her school class so that her students could hear native english so we are going to do that which will be fun! Then we just have a normal busy week! Well I will try to send all those pictures that weren't working last week but I love you all so much! Have a great week!
