The Spirit was sooo strong!

February 19, 2019

HEYYY everyone!!

Wow this week has been soo good and soo many miracles have happened!!
First off with the new rule change that missionaries are aloud to Skype there families now on P-days and other special occasions!
I know my family is extremely happy about this, well mostly my mom haha!
It will be really amazing to be able to involve my family more in the missionary work here in Norway!

This past Tuesday we celebrated Freds birthday with a family in our branch, the Fyhns. It was soo much fun and he was soo grateful for that!
We were able to teach him that night after P-day was over about the Plan of Salvation. I don't have words to explain how amazing that experience was, the Spirit was sooo strong and My heart was just pounding the whole entire time!! I have never felt the spirit stronger then in that very moment, it is a feeling that I never want to forget! At one point that night I was able to bear my testimony of why I am on a mission right now(I could not hold my tears in any longer). I talked about that I would not be on a mission right now if I did not know that these things were true. And that I know there is a Father in Heaven who loves us all so much and that he has a son, Jesus Christ, our Savior, who died for us so that we can live again and overcome all of our mistakes in our life. I know that all of these things that I said to him are true and I know that he could feel the spirit that night also.
I then got an impression to ask Fred if he would like to receive a priesthood blessing from Magne. He said YES! That was really amazing and I am just so happy to be a missionary right now and I know this work is true.

Agata came to church this past Sunday also and I had to translate the whole entire 2 hours for her!!! She was soo impressed with how much I knew haha (The gift of Tongues) After the meeting she told us she kept having goosebumps the whole time and felt such a good feeling!! We told her how that was the SPIRIT and she agreed!!! She is just an amazing person and we are meeting with her this week!

Transfers are coming up and it is going to be pretty crazy with moves and where people are going because a lot of the missionaries have not received there visas yet so they have to stay in the united States! Please pray for them!! We need them here in Norway!!

Doctrine and Covenants 88:63

63 Draw near unto me and I will draw near unto you; seek me diligently and ye shall find me; ask, and ye shall receive; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

I love this scripture and it has helped me through those times when I feel lonely or scared! Because He is always there and He always hears us.

I love you all and hope you have an amazing week!!!
