Another experience I had this week, is when I went on splits with another missionary. I flew to Tromsø early on Thursday meeting to conduct an interview for a baptism. The young man was so full of faith and understanding, it was an excellent privilege to be part of. This young man is from the Congo, he has been living in Norway for about 5 years and the stories I have heard about him are incredible. He was told as a young man that one day he would find that truth and was advised to take it. He believes he found the truth, and it brought the two of us together. I shared with him experiences of the missionary work my family has had the opportunity of being part of in a tribe in Congo. Many people are hearing the message of the Restoration of the Gospel from connections which were made over the past few years. As I began telling him the story of the tribe, it brought a spirit which was very unique. He was baptised this past Sunday in Tromsø. He in fact did find the truth.Here in Alta, the branch is small. About 15 are in attendance each week (including the missionaries). We have some investigators - the area was white-washed, so it's been difficult to get to know the investigators initially. The people here are so nice when we knock on their doors. We have had some positive success here in Alta. Last night, we met with a man from Iceland who admires Mormons for their good work ethic and family values. We were able to share with him the message of the Restoration and why our families are so important. We scheduled to teach him the Plan of Salvation (my favorite teach) in a couple weeks, so we look forward to that.
I hope everyone has a great week!
