OK. Først og fremst, I am so sorry everyone for my lack in emailing. Yes I am a horrible person who has some repenting to do. BUT I have some pretty exciting news to share with you all!
So we had moves call yester-morning. I will be leaving Romerike after serving here for four months and will be going up to Trondheim with Sister Hornback as my new companion. I'm going north!! And Sister Johnson (my current companion/trainer) will be going to Sandefjord. We will be white washed (both replaced) by Elder Palmer and Elder Edwards (yes, another one of my MTC brother-elders). That will be very fun!
On the other hand, it has been a pretty chill week. Lots of contacting on the streets of Lillestrøm and tracting. We had a nice lesson with Mariann reading in Alma 32 together. If you haven't read that chapter recently, I would highly recommend it.
We did have a nice Zone Leader Training last Thursday. We had Norsk Olympics!!! We played different games based on the language (verbs, nouns, reciting things på Norsk, ect), it was super fun! And I got to carry the torch away during the closing ceremonies. Good times, good times.
So yes it was a week filled with much finding but it was still a great learning week. That is one thing that I really appreciate about life in general: We are always learning from ourselves and others. It's the circle of life! Romerike has taught me many things. It has been difficult but I have grown closer with my Savior. I am forever grateful for the people I have met and the experiences that have refined me here.
My spiritual thought for the week: Mosiah 4:27 "And see that all these things are done in wisdom and aorder; for it is not requisite that a man should run bfaster than he has strength. And again, it is expedient that he should be diligent, that thereby he might win the prize; therefore, all things must be done in order.
I have really come to love this scripture very much over the course of this transfer. The Lord never requires us to go beyond what we are capable of, but He still asks us to DO what He ASKS of us.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week and remember that you are truly wonderful yourself :)
