Hello everyone! Vilken underbar vecka vi har haft. We started off the week right by going to this free Swedish history museum on P-day! The theme for the summer was vikings. :) Perfect for Syster Holley. We walked around the coolest exhibit and even did some fun viking activities. We made viking bread, played viking chess, and even a little archery! So legit.
We had dinner this week with the Robinsons too! We had home-made mini pizzas and Äldste Blackburn read us a nice little kid story about warm fuzzies and how we should give to others. It was a great life-lesson. ;) We also met this sassy dude on the street. He was like, 'Have you seen Jesus before?' And I was like, 'Uh no have you?' And he was like, 'No, and that's exactly why he is not real.' And then I said, 'Have you seen Michael Jackson before?' and he was like, 'Huh? No...he died.' and then I said, 'Well if you've never seen him before how do you know he's even real?' He was furious and didn't know what to say and just shook his head and left hehe. ;)
We visited sweet Kristin this week too! She gave us these yummy coconut godis and we talked about the sacrament. We were comparing all the scriptures talking about it in the Bible and the Book of Mormon and she was fascinated by it. She also told us if we ever come back to Sweden we have to stay with her! Definitely going to take her up on that offer haha. We got to go to Lars and Astrid's this week also. They made us Swedish pankakor and piled so many on our plates lol. The whole bishopric was out of town so Lars said he would lead Teng and Na's baptism on saturday. So nice of him.
We had zone training down in Gubbängen also. It was about how we can follow the spirit in our daily lives. It was a great training by Äldste Liddle and Bailey. We all got food together after and Nature godis.
The highlight of this week was Teng and Na's baptism! Me and Syster Holley got to the church super early and started filling the font. We made the baptism program in half chinese and swedish (thanks to Holley's chinese skills) and Teng and Na arrived and we helped them get ready. It was a great service. :) We gave our chinese/swedish talk as well and everyone was so impressed that Holley knew chinese! Teng gave a little testimony at the end too in swedish talking about his life before and how it felt empty without God and the gospel and now he has peace. It was so precious. I am so grateful we got to be a part of their conversion. I know the Lord put us in each others path for a reason. They really are like family to us and I never want to have to say goodbye to them.
Our best friends (McClatchie and Young) down in Täby also had a baptism for Cosmos as well! We got to go see that too and afterwards we had a fun BBQ with the office crew. :) It was such a great day full of happiness and a great reminder of how blessed I am to be a missionary. I love this work with all my heart. I can't even begin to describe the light I feel everyday.
Teng and Na were confirmed on Sunday and it was yet again another spiritual day. Love life so good and I'm grateful for my time here. It seriously is flying by and it is weird to think I am almost at my half way mark. I never want this to end!! Love you all and until next time.
