My brother, Sam got called to Madagascar
speaking Malagasy (which is French/Samoan)
and leaves August 3!!
I can't believe it!
It will be a completely different mission than mine.
I am so excited for him and secretly want to go with him!
Lots of learning and growing going on here in Drammen. On Monday we knocked on this potential that we knocked on 2 transfers ago and he was just as positive! He this Norwegian dad who lit up when he saw us at the door. We gave him a Book of Mormon and said we would come back when his wife was home. As Sister Crenshaw and I left the front door I kept saying.. "He is soo nice! I can't believe how nice he is!" haha. After knocking on millions of doors and getting rejected everytime.. it is nice to have a pleasant person answer the door. It was a tender mercy.
We visited a lot members and contacted on the street. I just love the members! We had some cool experiences on the street. With the few that listen I am always grateful. We are able to bear testimony to these people and we see a change in their eyes. Hopefully later in their life they will remember and search for answers to the questions of their souls.
It was stake conference this weekend, so all of the wide side of Norway came to Drammen! We got to help serve food for a leadership meeting they had one night. Stake conference was amazing! The spirit was so strong and I felt very grateful for my mission! I love the members in Norway. They are so strong! It very strange to be religious here and to especially be a mormon. I look up to them so much!
Her er et skriftsted for dere! 1 Corinthians 14:33
Don't complicate the gospel. Try feeling the spirit instead. Peace!
