hei hei 08/12/19
Finnish word of the week: hei hei (hay hay) goodbye
i'm going to go say hei hei to the congo family soon. oh my! my heart is breaking! haha i am not ready to leave!! They are doing good. they were in church and we are still teaching them. They are progressing despite their fears.
on Sunday one of the cute primary kids was introducing me to a guest and he told them I was from oulu!! Haha after serving here for the last 8 months I definitely feel like oulu is home. I'm so sad to leave! the people here are so wonderful...I'm going to miss it a lot!
soo...a little background story haha we had some members in the ward who are big bloggers here in Finland. I've been in some of their stuff lol cuz they've done a lot of awesome work with us annndd anyways we were contacting in the city center and this cute girl approached me and told me she recognized me from their blog! hahaha she asked us a bunch of questions about the church because she had heard things from the blogs. it was way cool and she ended up taking a book! woot woot!
I reached my 18 months last week! so weird! I cant believe it's actually been 18 months! where did time go??
my mission has been one of the best experiences of my life. I love the Finnish people. It's breaking my heart to leave them! I am beyond grateful for this opportunity I have had to serve.
I love this gospel and I know it's true. I feel so lucky to have been able to witness the change that takes place in people as they learn of Christ and His atonement. His atonement helped me through the good and the bad. I know that the Book of Mormon is truly a second testimony of Christ. I know that He lives. I love my mission and the sweet people of Finland.
