Well hello everyone! This is my last one of these on this side of the earth! It's been an amazing two years of my life here. It hasn't been the easiest, but that is why I'm so grateful for it. God is amazing. He is real and He loves us. We had a great week, especially with Light the World. We had an amazing event this past Saturday where we set up in the center and talked to SO many people. It was so awesome. But, thank you all for praying for me and for supporting me over these past years. It's crazy to think that I'll see you all so soon. Still haven't quite wrapped my mind around it. Don't think I will until it's real. But I hope everyone has a great week and that you continue to do something for someone else, in 25 ways, over 25 days. See you all soon!!

So it's been a few weeks! But, they've been great weeks. We've had exchanges, Zone Conference, and just some great time finding. Especially during the beginning of this Christmas time. We've found some wonderful people as the Spirit of Christ has touched their hearts. It's truly such a blessing to see. It's going to be a fantastic last week in the field and I'm going to try to go out with all that I have. We've got a crazy busy week up ahead! But that's what's the best. This week, if you haven't been able to see it, I want you all to see the new Christmas initiative! It's wonderful. Go out and serve people! 25 ways. Over 25 days. Have a wonderful week!

Hello everyone! Well, another week has gone and it's been great. The Lord blessed us with a new investigator this week and she's super cool. She comes to a bunch of our activities and overall it seems like she's quite interested. Then we also had exchanges with the Assistants which was great. So much fun and a bunch of little miracles happened. Just some love from Heavenly Father. It was wonderful. Overall, it's been a great week. It snowed like 8 inches a couple days ago and now almost everything is gone. But, it's still cold and the snow will return. But that's about it this week. I encourage everyone to read the proclamation to the world on family. Every family needs strengthening and I know that as we follow the counsel given, our families will become stronger. Have a wonderful week!

Well, another week in the glorious paradise of Finland. You all should be jealous that you aren't here! I mean, it's now dipped below freezing and it's only October, but it's fantastic to be a missionary here. I had an interesting week. We had My Plan for all the going home missionaries, IE my whole MTC group was there. Oh, it was so much fun to see everyone. Pretty rowdy haha. But we also had exchanges in Jyväskylä! That was a good time as well. We are trying to find people to teach right now and we have a wonderful week ahead of us! Thank you all for your support and love. This week, I would encourage all of you to read a talk from General Conference. This is truly exactly what the Lord needs us to hear at this time. So, it's probably pretty important! I'll include my favorite ones:
Have a wonderful week and make someone smile!

So this past week was absolutely fantastic. We had Mission Tour with Elder De Feo of the Seventy and I learned a bunch. Then on Friday we has Mission Conference and an extended leadership meeting with Elder De Feo. In Mission Conference, Elder Paul V. Johnson, Elder L. Witney Clayton, and Elder M. Russell Ballard spoke to us. Talk about awesome!!!! But then this past Sunday we had an across Finland stake conference in which Elder Ballard spoke to us. Then in the evening, we had a whole Europe area conference with Elder Ballard speaking to all of us. So, this past week has been packed and so amazing. I learned a lot and I'm so grateful to be a missionary right now. We've been talking to so many people and just trying to share the wonderful message that we have. I know it's true and I know that Elder Ballard is an Apostle of God. I have no doubt in that. Have faith and press forward. There is no other way.
