Elder Baldwin

Crazy new year.

Well, first thing is I'm moving areas. I'll be headed to Moss, which has a pretty strong ward and is the only biking area in the entire mission. It's going to be a completely different experience. I will be having Elder Love as my Companion, who was my current's companion 2nd companion as well, so its going to be a blast.
Next thing is Christmas, we had a great Time with the Kristiansund elders. So much food and chocolate, it was wonderful. Missionary work wise there wasn't too much happening because Norwegians pretty much view the entire last week of December as one large holiday, so most days we weren't allowed to proselyte, just visit the few members and investigators we had.
On thursday we had the mission wide cleaning day, so we did a deep clean of the apartment. After cleaning all day we decided to go to a restaurant, and we eventually settled on Sushi. We tried a lot of different kinds of fish but surprisingly the best one was octopus.
Well, now on to the most unique thing that happened. We had met up with some members to go see the town fireworks yesterday. There is a little mountain near where we live that we decided we wanted to go up on It was pretty icy. On the way up I slipped and banged my head a little. I am fine though, I had to go to the doctor and get 4 stitches and they said I will have a little scar, so that should be pretty cool.
Oh yeah, I forgot about the week before Christmas. We had a huge turnout to our Branch party, 13 people other than the missionaries! The most people we had seen in the church at one time before this was about half a dozen people other than missionaries, so that was awesome to see.
Spiritual thought Ether 12:2727 And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them.
Figured it was appropriate as I definitely am feeling a little weaker after my slip.
