People have been talking about the Olympics, and it has been fun to
hear about it from the members.
Things have been going really well for us here in Oslo, and
week was the best week the district has had since I got here.
things are great! We have 8 investigators who are going to be
in March, and we found 15 new investigators this week, so the Lord
really blessing us. I am just not really sure what the difference
But that is okay, because I am just way excited about it.
week we visited Rhoda and we got an appointment for
a couple of days later to come and teach her about the gospel. When we got there, we rang
the doorbell, and called her a couple of times, but there was no answer at
were pretty bummed about it, because we really just want to help
out, so we decided to pray about what to do next and then to
Elder Duncan prayed, and while he spoke, I just felt a warm
come over me. I felt at peace with the world, and life just felt
despite everything. I knew Heavenly Father loved me. As soon as
said amen, however, Rhoda walked out onto her balcony. It was the
random thing, and she didn't even know we were there, but we
hello, and she let us in and she said that she has been thinking about baptism a lot
lately and she agreed to be baptized on the 22nd of March. She
doesn't have a testimony that our church is the only true church yet,
so we have a lot of work to do still, but I am excited for her, and I
know the Lord will help her. I know that
Lord blesses us in the things that we do because He knows His
and He knows what is best for us.
Other than Rhoda, we
don't have any investigators who are really progressing right now. Viviana
said she is really busy right now and wants to take a break
things, so we are giving it a rest with her right now. This week
Duncan and I set a goal to find 9 new investigators, which is like
more than I have ever found in a week, but we really felt like it

The winter is passing and that is a really great thing.
Sometimes on my mission I have moments when

Missions are so much fun and so crazy and so hard and so worth it
at the same time, that I feel like I am just a big ball of
walking around most of the time. But I love it. In the Doctrine
Covenants section 15 (or near to there) there is a scripture that
that the thing that will be of most worth for [us] right now will
to share the gospel. And I have a testimony that is true. I love
work, and I love you all!
