We are still working with the 2 Croatian guys and they have a baptismal date for the end of this month. We are teaching them tonight with the other Croatian missionaries through Skype.
We got a new investigator this past week and she is Norwegian! She has a friend who is Mormon and he brought her in to the center a few weeks ago and she wants to be baptized. We taught her and set a baptismal date. She is a super cute girl.. about in her mid 20s and has a huge desire to learn more and help people. So solid.
We visit a 94 yr old Norwegian lady every week and help her move her stuff. She is the most happiest, oldest woman I have ever met. So funny too. I will have to get a picture with her sometime.
Last night, Søster Robbins and I went on splits with Elder Forsberg (native norwegian missionary) and Elder Crump (just came out same time i did). We set a goal that we would find 2 new investigators. We were out for 2 hours and were able to find 2 new investigators and get 3 numbers from other people! So amazing and so fun to teach with an Elder. Elder Crump and I have only been out for almost two weeks and we were able to contact in Norwegian on the streets and people listened.. enough though our norsk was terrible! haha It was amazing! We said Hi and started asking a question to a guy on a bike going in the opposite direction and we said he wont get off his bike and come talk to us.....We spoke too soon! The guy got off his bike, turned around and walked up to us to talk to us! He was so interested and we gave him a Book of Mormon!
Sometimes, we even as missionaries lack faith or doubt things wont happen. Well God likes to prove us wrong! Because He knows best, and has a plan for each one of His children. That is something I have learned so strongly on my mission... how much God loves each one of His children, individually. We do have to experience the bitter before we taste the sweet. The sweet becomes that much sweeter because we have gone through the bitter.
Norway is so beautiful and the people are beautiful! Even though I don't know the language nor can I understand it, I feel love for the people. There are some good people here.
Try to recognize God's hand in your life everyday even when it is hard.
