January gloom

Tjena Tjena! This week was exhausting. We had a fun P-Day in the stores of Nordstan and got some carrot muffins. We then went and hit the streets later in the evening and prayed we would find some nice people and found this french guy who only new french but we gave him a card and he said he would come to church.

We went on splits this week with Syster May and Syster McClatchie as well! Two of my favorites. :) It was so fun getting to be with them again and catch up on life. Me and Syster May were together and we visited this sweet old lady named Sigbrit. We sang some hymns for her and she gave us some chocolate. We had a fun dinner the the Angelini's that night too.

The next day was the craziest rain wind storm we have ever witnessed. We had basically nothing planned that day so we were determined to go out with our big raincoats and umbrellas and talk to the world! Lol honestly didn't go too well. Our umbrella kept going inside-out and everyone thought we were crazy for trying to talk to people out in the rain. We decided to just tract some houses instead and Syster Heaps had to go to the bathroom so bad that we asked the next door that opened if we could use it. This really nice girl let us in and we talked for awhile and she asked us all about why we were here and our purpose so that was cool.

The next day we taught the Plan of Salvation to our investigator. Felix came along too to help which was nice. :) The Plan of Salvation is one of my favorite lessons to teach. Every time we teach it, it always just is a great reminder to me how grateful I am for the gospel. It gives us so much hope especially knowing where we came from, why we are here, and what will happen after. So much kunskap and kärlek its great lol. The Söderberg's had us over for dinner too so that was a blast! Vincent and Leo are so great and we talked about anime and art and other things we liked.

We had a great district meeting this week as well and talked about companions. We talked about how fun and hard it can be to forced to be with someone for 24-7. ;) I can't get over how grateful I am for Syster Heaps. :) We always have the best conversations and just love talking about life and just love doing the work with joy! We don't want transfers to ever come.

We went to a baptism in Utby this last weekend as well! It was such a spiritual day evening and the guy being baptized was from the middle east and was so happy.

While we were out contacting one day, we ran into the sweet Anna Ocasio! This sweet lady who was one of our best friends in Helsingborg. :) We hugged for a long time and caught up. Seriously such a blessing to run into her. Me and her daughter Alicia are soul sisters. ;) Miss their family so much and told her how excited I was to come back and see them in April!

Sunday was great too. The french guy we talked to on the street came to church so that was exciting. :) Fabrice (a french member) took him under his wing and translated the entire church for him! What a guy. We were so happy and he said he was so glad he met us and agreed to meet again this next week! Woot woot. :) After church the Johanssons had us over for dinner. We showed them the daily bread mormon message and how it is the little things we do in our life everyday that build us up, make us stronger, and help us come closer to our Savior. We love mormon messages.

All and all it was a tiring week this week and we learned a lot. Words can't describe how exhausted we have been but it is the best exhaustion we have ever felt. Knowing all our efforts are for the Lord and his work is the best feeling one can feel. Lovin' life. Tacksam för tiden jag har haft här. Alltid ska minnas min frälsare och allt han gjorde för oss. Om jag är ärligt är det inte alltid lätt att vara här. Det finns många gånger jag tänker varför kom jag hit? Det är så svårt haha. Men då tänker jag om försoningen och hur det var inte lätt för herren heller. Han gjorde det eftersom han älskade oss. Det är hur jag känner mot honom också. Jag älskar honom så vill jag göra allt jag kan åt honom nu och för evigt. :) Det är anledningen.

Love you guys and till next week!

Med Kärlek,
Syster Davis
