Hello everyone!  So this is the first one from up here in the way north!  Ha ha, it's not as cold as you would think, but we do have a lot more snow here than where I was.  But overall, this past week went great!  Elder Howe is great and I'm way stoked to be serving up here.  We also had a crazy missionary broadcast this past week in the which they dropped some fiery doctrine.  Hah, but other than that, not too much.  The branch here is great and we have awesome members.  I have to translate every week from now on, so that'll be pretty interesting!  But anyways, overall, it's been lot's of good times so far.

I totally forgot to do a list thing this week.  I just want you all to ponder about what Alma means when he says, "the nature of happiness."  What does that mean to you?  That's an important question.

But my spiritual thought this week comes from something profound that, funny enough, I said.  Ha ha, we were talking about happiness and I said, "You have to look for the daisies among the dandelions." So remember, you can choose to be happy and make life what you want.  You are the creator.  You are an agent to act and not to be acted upon.  Think about the blessings from the Lord this week!  Love you all!

So the biggest thing that happened this week was that we got transfer calls!  I'll be heading up to Rovaniemi from Kokkola and I'll be serving with Elder Howe.  I'm pretty sad to be leaving but I know the Lord has a plan for each of us and that I'm going up for a reason!  But yeah, so that's pretty swell.  Other than that, just had a great week of going out and trying to find people.  

Just read your scriptures!  Remember to always pray and read!!

So sorry I missed last week!  You can understand how crazy mission life is.  I don't have too much time, but this past week went well!  We had a really cold and warm week haha.  But we've been finding great people and I'm grateful to be out here serving the Lord.  It's always the best when it comes down to it!

Alma 13:27-29
Luke 12:15

My spiritual experience this past week was when we were contacting. We contacted this older woman and she said she wasn't interested. We then offered to carry her bag for her and she told us we could. As we walked and talked with her, she expressed to us some hard things that were going on in her life at the moment. We bore testimony and the love of Christ was truly with us. She then told us that earlier that day she had prayed that someone would come and help her just carry her bag. And a couple minutes later we showed up. It was an amazing experience to truly feel like we were becoming like Jesus Christ. We went about doing good and we were able to bless someones life immensely.  I love you all!
