Hello everyone!  I totally thought that I sent one of these last week, but I guess not!!  But these past two weeks have been good.  Really busy finding and with all the extra things that are going on.  But hey, I think it's great.  The work is going forward well.  We had a great experience talking with this lady on the bus.  At first, she wasn't interested.  We gave her a Restoration pamphlet and after about 10 min she started to ask questions and she turned into a potential investigator for the Sisters!!  Talk about blessings.  But, that kind of stuff is truly what makes this work great.  But for this week, I want to stress the importance of loving everyone and really trying to reach out to them.  We have trials in our lives, but if we just look around, you won't have to go very far in order to see someone who has it worse than you.  So reach out, be a friend, and be the child of our Heavenly Father that He can trust to make a difference.  Because we all can.  Have an awesome week!

Hello everyone!  So we got to meet our new Mission President, and he is amazing!  He'll do so much for this mission and I'm super stoked to see where the work goes because of it.  We got to talk with him a lot after Zone Conference, so that was really nice.  He and Sister Aura will be and are awesome.  But yeah, then we also had exchanges with the Lahti Elders and with the Assistants this next week!  Both great experiences and nice times to learn and become a better missionary.  We just have some amazing missionaries here and I'm so glad to be able to work with so many of them!!  But yeah, that was a summary of the week.  Oh, and something of a little less importance is that in a blind chocolate taste test, Elder Vennerholm, a Swede, chose American chocolate over Swedish and Finnish!!!  So that was hilarious.  But, overall it's been a great week.  Things are going well here.

Hey, I just want you all to realize how special you are in God's eyes.  Know your worth and then get outside yourself.  We learn the most about our character in the way that we treat other people and how much we can forget about ourselves.  Look out and turn out.  It requires effort and action but it will never be a waste.  Have a fantastic week!

Sorry, this week will be short, but hey, it was a crazy week.  Went down to Helsinki, we have a new Mission President, had exchanges with some of the Elders in the Zone, and just overall had a great time finding this past week.  Things are just great right now and mission life is great.  It's been pretty crazy and fast paced.  And I LOVE it.  But hey, I hope you all know how special you are to God and that you are His children.  He wants to hear from you in prayer, so remember to pray!  Have a fantastic week!
