It was a pretty solid week here in Kungsbacka and we were pretty busy!
On Tuesday we had splits with the VF Elders and I had the honor of having Elder Thompson come to Kungsbacka! He is from Arizona has been in Sweden for 1 year (he's one group behind me). We taught a lesson together and tracted and met lots of new people! We met a nice lady that was born in Sweden but has been to North Korea! She grew up not believing in God but after some life events she started believing. We shared Mosiah 16:8-9 and gave her a Book of Mormon and we're going by her later today to see if shes interested in learning more :) Overall it was a great splits and I learned a bunch!
We'll be going on splits again together this week but this time I'm going to VFs area so that'll be fun!
We also had Zone Conference this last week! It was really good and we were all spiritually stuffed. We talked about planning, setting goals (one of my personal favorites), setting expectations and then about teaching! We should try and make every situation into a teaching situation. We were taught that we have the potential to teach so much more in this mission! Mindset is something that is so important. It's so easy to get caught into the trap of "oh that's just how it is in this mission" instead of having faith that things can be different. Good stuff. Then we talked about how we can better work with members through ministering and how we have to find the balance between doing too much and doing too little. Super good conference!
Speaking of conferences though...GENERAL CONFERENCE IS THIS WEEKEND!! I'm pumped! We have the opportunity to listen to a prophet and apostles that speak specifically for our day! I know that every member of the first presidency and Quorum of the twelve apostles are men called of God and that they will tell us what we need to hear. The Lord said "What I the Lord have spoken, I have spoken, and I excuse not myself; and though the heavens and the earth pass away, my word shall not pass away, but shall all be fulfilled, whether by mine own voice or by the voice of my servants, it is the same." (D&C 1:38) I challenge you all to write down 3 questions or concerns and then watch as every question mark becomes a quiet answer in your hearts ❤
With the coming of general conference also means that it's time for some speculation about changes coming!! I've heard quite a few rumors but I guess we'll see what happens.
Transfers are also next week and it's just tradition to speculate what is going to happen. We've taken it to the next level here and made our own transfer board haha. I know it sounds weird, but it's actually so fun to speculate😂
Also small miracle from yesterday: I was giving a talk and on the way to church our good friend Frank from a few weeks ago stepped on the train to come listen to my talk! He enjoyed his time at church but we'll see if he wants to keep learning more!
Also, for p day today we went out to the islands and it was SO COOL! I have lots of pics so be prepared.
Have a great week and conference weekend!
