April 20, 2010

Journal. That's always hard to do at night. I have been writing in it. But sometimes i have to catch back up like right now. Currently, i'm like 5 days behind in my journal. I'll try and do better.
The school presentation went very well. It was an hour and half. Gave away some Mormonin Kirjas. It was good.
Ellie hugged Taylor Swift. That's awesome! Good find on the tickets D-Train. Did she have any new songs? Was it awesome Mom? I like the shirt Ellie had. You know what shirt I want. I want the "I'm an 8 cow woman"  from Johnny Lingo that they sell at the book store haha.
I haven't heard from my brother in awhile. Is he alive? How's work going for him?
Sister Vomia. The greatest woman alive. We see her at least once a week whether at church or taking the sacrament to her. She is so cool. We brought us chocolate bars the other day. Way awesome.
The Language. It's coming along. I'm around right where I should be. So that's not good. I want to be amazing! We'll see.
News Update: We currently have 6 investigators at the moment.
The ward is about 30 members. About 20 are active. There is a very small chapel but awesome none the less. I like Savonlinna. The lake is almost compeletely melted. Warming up a bit. The wind is kicking up though. Fun times.
For all letters that you send and for others that send. Don't send any letters to me in the city im serving. It would be better if you sent all letters (probably just letters because packages get here quick) to the address on Neitsytpolku in Helsinki because it takes letters a long time and if they send them late and I move, i have to rely on the other elders in the city where i was to send it to me. Plus, if you send in to helsinki, in will get to me only a day later cause Finland mail is amazing. Works great. Just a heads up cause we have change calls coming up here in a little less than 2 weeks.
Dad, keep sending me your advice. It's advice from my father, why would I not want to hear it. If you could also please, write about your conversion story in DETAIL. I want to know how you felt, what you were taught, what clicked, what the missionaries taught, everything that you can remember. I think we could really use some of that for teaching. If you could help me out with that, that would be great.
Mother's Day. ARE YOU EXCITED!?! When on May 9th works? Is Dad going to be home? If dad is gone, we can just change the day, Not a big deal. I can call home cause i have the calling card still so let me know the best time.
That's all from me. Talk to you soon. I'm off to Oulu for zone conference. Road tripping with Elders Falk and Watson again!
