I had an excellent week this past week! I got to go back to Stavanger on splits with the Elders there! The best part of it was that we met with a very special woman to me! For the longest time she was afraid of the Bible, she didn't grow up in a religious home and we were always trying to help her to feel comfortable learning about these things. She always felt the Spirit so strongly, she had incredible experiences with Heavenly Father and the healing that comes from the Atonement. Finally, this past week she had another appointment with us and we invited her to be baptized. She asked me to pick the date for her to be baptized and she wants me to come back to be at the baptism! It was so incredible, the Lord takes special care of her - I know that for certain!
Her baptism will not be until October, but it should work out that I will be back in Stavanger on that day to be part of the baptism! I am so grateful for the blessings of the Lord - He has blessed me personally with incredible miracles. Everything I've experienced here has been nothing short of miraculous!
This coming week, our mission will be hosting Elder Dyches from the Area Presidency. I am really looking forward to him coming because we will be in several meetings with him. I feel blessed that I will be able to spend time with a General Authority in person! It's a blessing to work closely to the Mission President, and now a General Authority! It is a great blessing for me to be here and to contribute to this work and this country! I am very grateful for every experience!
I hope that everyone is able to have a great week! This whole experience has shaped and refined me into someone I never thought was possible, but He does it every single day. It's quite incredible to be molded! My wish is for everyone to have this similar experience!
