bikes are the best 08/21/18
finnish word of the week: pyörät (p-eww-rat) - bikes
sisar kokkola and i have been using our pyörät everyday this week!! we live in the corner of our area and the only way to get to the rest of it is down this huge hill and wowow it's fun to go down but it's the worst biking up it haha our legs are crazy sore. I also ate it wayy bad this week and almost took out two finnish grandma's haha sisar kokkola got a good laugh out of it but then she wiped out the next day sooo karma
in district counsel 2 weeks ago we set a goal to teach 8 mini lessons per companionship to people on the street a day!! we definetly didn't reach our goal every day haha but i noticed sisar kokkola and i really made more of an effort to share our testimony and to really give people the chance to know a little about this gospel before they rejected it and it made such a difference in our missionary work this past week!!
earlier this week one of the elders in our zone said around this time of year the dark comes and before we know it we're not gonna see the sun and i couldn't help but think that's a total lie cuz we've been living in the sun day and night for as long as i've been in finland lol but last night the dark came early and wowow it was weird to walk around in it!! i
so i decided imma give our investigators better nicknames so you can all follow them a little better!!
haha pet has been investigating the church for a while now!! he's finnish and the most awkward person ever but we love him so much!! we invited him to be baptized and he confessed about an addiction he has but says he wants to be baptized!! woot woot!! so we're working with him on it!!
he's really our only investigator right now.... so we've been doing a ton of tracting and contacting this week!! earlier in the week sisar kokkola and i were having a blast tracting this building and on our very last door for the night a man answered and bashed us pretty bad in english when we realized we didn't fully understand everything he was saying finnish....one question he asked us was if we knew what we were doing out here and we were able to share our testimony about Christ and i felt the spirit testify so strongly of Christ when we shared. I know He lives. I feel it stronger every time i testify of Him. I'm so grateful for this opportunity to wear His name on my name tag and be a disciple for him.
hope you all have a hyvä viiko
love sisar larson
