Elder Holland gave a devotional tuesday evening and i have never felt the spirit stronger in a talk!! my favorite part was when he talked about Joseph Smith. i can't remember exactly what he said but i remember thinking this... Joseph Smith had an elementary school education and he translated the BOM. he wouldn't of been able to do that without the gift of tongues!! the gift of tongues is SO real! i notice it in each lesson sisar smith and i teach, i notice it when we study and guys it's just so incredible!! and i'm so very grateful for it!!!

you guys! finnish is SO hard!! 48 hours into our stay st the mtc we taught an investigator in finnish. the lesson wasn't the best but we tried!! monday was the hardest day this week. after teaching the investigator, veli (brother) ryan got a little frustrated with us because we were writing out word for word what to say! so he had us put all of our notes and books away and practice teaching each other. we all struggled through it and by the end of class we were all crying haha. tuesday morning we go up at 1:30 and left to cali so we could get our visa's. we were all still super bummed from monday but when our shuttle driver picked us up we got talking to him and we taught him about the gospel and he accepted a book of mormon! guys we talked to a bunch of other people about the gospel and even placed one more book of mormon on our flight home!! it was just the experience we needed after monday. Wednesday veli ryan told us we couldn't teach the investigator with our notes anymore. i don't think i've ever been more scared than i was right before sisar smith and i walked into the lesson. when we started teaching words kept coming to me and the spirit was so strong!!! guys the gift of tongues is so real!! \

 

soo pics aren't working and some of you have asked what finnish looks but i can't use umlats on this computer so here is kinda what it looks like
