It was so fun to see the pictures of Indies baptism! I'm glad that it all went well and little Indie enjoyed it :) Sounds like it was an exciting week for everyone there. Too bad that Mandy and Danen are suffering without air conditioning, I'd trade them a hot day for a rainy day at this point though.
We had a good week here in Oulu. We had the finnish mom and a Muslim man from Algeria in church this week and they both really enjoyed it. The Finnish mom is doing super well, she has a testimony of the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith, she is just working through quitting coffee and all that stuff but she is progressing great! We had some other really good lessons this week and found a cool couple from South Sudan that have lived here in Finland for 10 years. Pretty cool, we actually tracted in to the mom and she set up a return appointment for the next day, and then when we went for the appointment she told us that her father had died the day before we knocked on her door so she was pretty excited to hear about the Book of Mormon and that we can all see our families again some day. It was a really nice lesson and sweet experience.
Well we had a zone meeting last week too that was really good. We talked about the story of David and Goliath and how to really get rid of fear like David did. It was a pretty sweet meeting. I think that all missionaries around the world get pretty scared to talk to people but the story of David is a sweet example of a person who had such great faith that fear never even came in to his mind when he saw Goliath. So I realized that that was probably my last zone meeting as a zone leader. I don't know if I'll still be in Oulu next change or not but it was a sweet experience to really testify to the missionaries of how I've seen Heavenly Father help me throughout my mission and how when you feel God's love for you, there's no need to fear.
Well that's all from the week, I love you guys! I'll talk to you next week!
