Sister Jacobs is here. She is perfect. I love her so much and we are already great friends and so excited to see what we can do here in Stockholm for my last 6 weeks here.
I made some goals for this transfer. I decided I want to learn about faith and about my divine potential. Two things I don't really understand as well as I would like to. First, please listen to
It's beautiful. That's how I feel. Lord, I believe! Help thou my unbelief. I do believe but I want to be like Russel M. Nelson said, "We need women who know how to make things happen by their faith." And then the divinity of every human being and what we can do and become. That topic keeps reappearing and I really need to learn and discover the truth in that we really are God's children.
So this week we got Sister Sorenson and Sister Mod off and it was super sad! But Mod already emailed me so like, yay. :) We went and saw a church with lights all around the graves because that's what they do for "halloween" or "all saint's day". It was beautiful and really calm. I am really starting to get super close to everyone here. I love church and all activities because I know people and feel so loved. :) The Beckstrand's had a fireside and it was really great. :) Sometimes I have the thought that God really wants us to be strengthening the members and ourselves because of where the world is headed... We, of course, always need to share the gospel with nonmembers! But we need to make sure we have our oxygen masks on before we help others with theirs.
A spiritual thought... God loves us so much. He blesses us so much, especially when we are struggling. Jacob 5:
And the Lord of the vineyard said unto him: Counsel me not; I knew that it was a poor spot of ground; wherefore, I said unto thee, I have nourished it this long time, and thou beholdest that it hath brought forth much fruit.
I feel a lot like the poor spot of ground a lot of times, and it's wonderful to know that Christ can make more of us than ever seems possible.
I LOVE YOU ALL.

I honestly don't know what this is...
Beautiful Alyssa and her new companion:)
