This week was great! PDay was fun, we carved pumpkins and had pancakes with a bunch of missionaries. Stockholm is the best place for PDays. My trainer (first companion) is going home and my freind is going to be AP. (Assistant to the President :) I am really going to miss MOD! :( I know she will email me though cause she's the best. :)
Wednesday was awesome!!!!!!!! Annelie came to dinner and Institute. It was so fun. She is adorable. I said goodbye to her because I figured she was leaving...nooope. Haha. But it was a blast to see her anyways. :) I think she liked the lesson too! We had about 3 other people there too. It was really, really fun. I have absolutely fallen in love with the YSA here. We have so much fun!
OK. What else? THIS. AREA'S. ON. FIAAAAAAAAAAAAAARE. Kind of haha. We have some investigators and english class is blowing up! Jonathon has 2 friends that each brought someone else to the halloween party and we had a lesson with all of them! :) Two other people from English class came and it was just awesome. I have learned that God blesses me the most when I am struggling in certain areas.
I was reflecting on all the things I have learned now that I have been on my mission for a year. I have learned my flaws and my strengths, things I didn't even realize before. I feel like I have become softer and more understanding. I have learned what it means to turn to God. Gosh, have I learned that haha. I have learned that you need to read the Book of Mormon every. single. day. if you don't ever want to doubt the gospel. I have learned more of what it means to love people and how dependent we really are/need to be on God. I could go on and on... but I have a completely different view on life and the gospel.
A spiritual thought: I have been reading a lot in Romans 8. It is a beautiful chapter. I was praying and then pondering about it.
I love you guys so much. Thank you for all your prayers and love! I can honestly feel the difference when people fast and pray for me. I have been incredibly blessed and I am so glad I am here. The church is true! God loves you all! And I do too. :)
