Christmas Highlights

God Jul!!
Highlights of the week:

-Frosting cookies with the YSA and delivering them to people!

-Christmas Conference!! 
We had the north zone come to Trondheim! 

We had a talent show and me and Sister Peterson sang "The First Noel."

Then... the Trondheim District sang "La Den Gå" (Let it Go from Frozen in Norwegian). 
It was Legendary and everyone sang along even the Mission president and his wife! 

-Dinner at Majken and Aaron's (members) 
and shared a spiritual thought about the Atonement of Jesus Christ.

-Visited with good people!! Felt really grateful for the people I have met in Trondheim.

-Hot Chocolate with Majken, weekly planning, and then taught an investigator. 

-Street Stand! 
It was so crowded and we gave out all of our #enfrelsererfødt (a savior is born) cards. 

-Christmas Dinner with Målfri! 

Classy dinner - Ate some traditional Norwegian Christmas food!

-Dinner with Stian and all the missionaries 
(ate some more traditional norwegian christmas food 
which is Pinnekjøtt (racks of lamb) or Ribbe (pork ribs). 

I am so grateful for my mission. 
I am grateful for the opportunity I have 
to represent Jesus Christ and be witness of Him. 
I really get to celebrate Christmas everyday as a missionary. 
This time of year to celebrate is for Him. 
He came as a child. 
He accomplished the Atonement. 
He went through it all, so He would know how to help us. 
He did it because He loves us. 
He was the perfect example. 
I love my Savior and I know that He lives. 
He is truly the Light and Hope of the World!!

For behold, the time cometh, and is not far distant, that with power, the Lord Omnipotent who creigneth, who was, and is from all deternity to all eternity, shall come down from heaven among the children of men, and shall dwell in a etabernacle of clay, and shall go forth amongst men, working mighty fmiracles, such as healing the sick, raising the dead, causing the lame to walk, the gblind to receive their sight, and the deaf to hear, and curing all manner of diseases. And he shall cast out adevils, or the bevil spirits which dwell in the hearts of the children of men. And lo, he shall suffer temptations, and pain of body, hunger, thirst, and fatigue, even more than man can suffer, except it be unto death; for behold, blood cometh from every pore, so great shall be his fanguish for the wickedness and the abominations of his people. And he shall be called Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Father of heaven and earth, the Creator of all things from the beginning. 
(Mosiah 3:5-8)

Merry Christmas!!!
