HYVÄÄ JOULUA!!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! 12/17/18
finnish word of the week: Oulu (oh-lew) A city in Finland
note: ( Sisar Larson forgot to name her photos so I Did my best haha!)
I have news!! I am being transferred to Oulu!! It is the most northern city that sister missionaries serve here in Finland. I will be there for the coldest time of year...rip! however, i am really excited! I will also be the STL (sister training leader) over the north zone and east zone with my new companion Sisar Hooser! wow, I am very nervous but I know that the Lord will help me in this calling.
Sisar Hollingsworth is staying Here in Tampere and Sisar Watts will be coming to her from Jyväskylä!! Sisar Watts was in our district this transfer so they already know each other!! woot woot! This transfer has gone by so fast! I am sad to be leaving Sisar Hollingsworth and Tampere but I know Oulu will be good.
I had my last lesson with Mir this week! She is old and having lots of back problems. It is super sad to see her struggle but she still wants the missionaries to come over and she still wants to go to church! She has so much faith!! It was sad saying goodbye but I know Sisar Watts and Sisar Hollingsworth are going to be the perfect combo for her!
Lots of our other investigators are out of town for christmas so it has been a week of contacting and tracting! One day we were out tracting oma koti's (houses) and we met this Very cool finn!! He is so interested in the Book of Mormon and we ended up talking to him for a while! I am excited for Sisar Hollingsworth to keep teaching him! woot woot!
We had a ward party after church this week! We ate rice porridge with them and wooowww finns really like that stuff haha! they ate so much of it so fast! it was funny!!
anyways, i hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas!! There is no better time to celebrate Christ than right now!! I love my Savior and I am soo grateful for Him and His eternal sacrifice! I know that He lives! I know that He is always there for each of us!
Love, Sisar Larson
