Easter Week in Norway

Easter Week in Norway is like a ghost town, so that means that missionaries spend a lot of time with the members! It was really fun!

Highlights of the week:
Mandag: We celebrated Elder Broadbent's birthday at Mariell's (member in the ward). We played a fun norwegian game.

Tirsdag: We went to a member dinner with the elders and then helped out at Balliadon.
Balliadon is Norway’s youth conference! It is soo cool! They stay together for 3 days and do sports and have a huge dance/ball party with dancing and singing. We helped serve food at the ball Tuesday night. The singers in the show were just youth from the stake and they were so talented! It was fun to talk to the all the youth dressed up. They all said hi to the missionaries. :)

Onsdag: We went to a funeral of a sweet lady I knew in Trondheim, who recently moved to Drammen. It was a very beautiful and sad day. I got to see the Rappleyes and some other members from Trondheim. It was a day I won't forget on my mission.

Torsdag: We had zone leadership training all day and then we contacted. It was the last day we were allowed to contact, so me and Sister Crenshaw went with faith into the city. We talked to a lot of people and taught this one guy the restoration. He wasn't interested in meeting, but he asked what makes us different from other churches. He said in the end.. oh that is a difference! It was cool!
Fredag: Such a fun day!! We went on a hike, roasted hot dogs and played games with a member family (The Weggersens). Then we all went to dinner at the Brownlees. Super fun!

Lørdag: We ate at a member's house, played a game with them, and then got a referral!

Søndag: God Påske! Went to church and then ate dinner with the Pedersens :)

Mandag: Yesterday, we spent the day with the nicest people! We have some neighbors who love sister missionaries. They are not members of the church, but wanted to spend the whole day with us and take us around Drammen. It was super fun and I loved learning about their lives and what they are interested in.

This weekend is General Conference! I am so stoked! I encourage you to write down questions you have and listen for them during conference. This is a great time to receive personal revelation! I am grateful for living prophets and apostles! I know that God speaks through them and we should obey their counsel. There are blessings that come when we listen to them! I know this to be true because I have experienced it.

Glad i dere!
