I love general conference, especially as a missionary. Shout out to Pres. Russell M. Nelson's talk about women. How empowering! There were so many good talks. I am really excited to study them for the next 6 months.
Interesting things that happened this week:
We did a question and answer at a children's school with the soon-to-be teachers. Afterwards we "accidentally" left a Book of Mormon and one of them came running out to us and said, "Mormons! You left your Bible!" haha It was funny.
We had a cool contact with a lady on the street that day. She was so excited to receive a Book of Mormon for free. Unfortunately, she doesn't live in Trondheim, so we referred her to the missionaries in her area. It was way cool though. Heavenly Father really leads us to those that are prepared and willing to listen.
One day we had the sister training leaders with us and it was a blast. I love it when they come!
Me and Sister House had a cool contact with this boy on the street. We helped answer his question, "If there is a God than why do children die of cancer?" I could see a satisfied look in this boy's face as we testified of the purpose of live and how God has a plan for all of His children.
On Friday we had an appointment with a girl Sister Sorensen and Sister Peterson met on the street. We were late because we missed our bus stop and the girl was not there. :( We were way upset, so we walked swiftly into the city to try and find her. We didn't see her. We decided to say a prayer in the middle of city and ask Heavenly Father to help us find her, so that we could give her a Book of Mormon. After we said the prayer we turned the corner and guess who was there.. the girl! Heavenly Father had answered our prayer.
I am so grateful to be a missionary at this time. I am so grateful for prophets and apostles to help lead and guide us. The heavens are open and the world is preparing for the 2nd coming of Christ. It is our time to step forward. Be covenant keeping saints. Speak with power and authority. Make things happen with our faith. Teach fearlessly. Express our belief with confidence.
I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is the ONLY way to true and everlasting happiness.
We got caught in a rain\wind storm!
