Well, I hope you guys had fun. Sorry about the late email. We had to switch our week around a little, but hey, all is well.
|Yes, it's a very large bear|
We had a great time with the Elders in Vyborg. We were on splits and they, luckily, had some good appointments set up. We got to be with them and see how it goes in their area. It was way fun. I met with their friend who is going to get baptized, and he is very prepared. I was happy to learn more about him and his conversion. Plus, it’s nice to get to know someone before you interview them for baptism.
|Curiosity got the best of me....|
We had some really cool companionship studies this week as well. Elder Brindley’s aunt sent him a little countdown to Easter, and it included everything in the last week of Christ's life and His opstandelse (resurrection). We had a good spiritual time reading those.
Just reading those things has strengthened my testimony of Christ and given me more understanding about what he literally and spiritually did for us. As we read about the mockery and the spitting on Him, it made both of us cry. Then the pure love of Christ to forgive them, who tortured him and put him on the cross...He just forgave them. Then when He hangs there on the cross, the convict beside him, sentenced to death for his actions, gains a testimony of Him and can see His glory and His truth. As he asked what will happen to him, Christ lovingly and tenderly says, "You will join me in paradise." The faith to ask the Lord, and His loving answer, amazes me.

the far right is the one I'm currently using.
Love you all! Have a great week and work hard. Love you.
