Well, this has been a pretty fun week! And really I think the best would be to start will what happened each day and explain it that way because then hopefully I can remember it all. :)
What Missionaries Do For Fun
What Missionaries Do For Fun
|Last district meeting with this group|
Missionary All Nighter!
The Three Finger Hold
Anyway (back to Tuesday) after district meeting we had to go back to our apartment in Kilo because Sister Fronk couldn't make it to the train station, so the Lohja elders ended up driving us to our apartment. Elder Hunter finally realized that something was wrong with Sister Fronk and kept looking back at her and asking if she was ok. I kept having to tell him to keep his eyes on the road because he was driving! I don't know how he had just noticed because she had a big seizure right in front of him! Oh Elder Hunter! haha But then when we got to the apartment, I was carrying all of her stuff and she was trying to stand up outside the car but was falling forward. So Elder Waite was trying to hold her up with three fingers, because he's an elder and she is a sister...but she was going to fall on her face! So I had to tell him that he had permission to touch her--not sure what good permission from me does--but it worked! Actually, better than I thought because he ended up bending down and picking her up and carrying her into the apartment where he plopped her on the couch, completely out of it, and then left! Haha it was pretty funny. Sister Fronk was so upset about it later! But she needed help, so I feel fine about it! It was just embarrassing I guess... haha. Then later we went to the temple and taught a less active family, which was really amazing! Then we went back to Neitsytpolku (Helsinki).

|Giving out Valentine's cookies with Sister Fronk|
Train Difficulties & Miracles
... YSTÄVÄNPÄIVA!!!! So Friday morning Sister Fronk was really struggling and so I got to spend the whole morning making heart shaped sugar cookies! Later that day we printed off little notes to put on the cookies with a scripture on it (Moroni 7: 45-47.) It was super fun and then we went to people's doors and to people on the street and wished them a "hyvää ystävanpäiva" and gave them cookies. We got to sing "Love one Another" to some of them and it was super fun! Plus, it really made people feel good when we were giving them cookies. (Though someone flat out rejected my cookie on the train... rude... so I went to a different cart and gave it to someone else! :) haha
Later that night we finally received our change calls! I will be staying her in Espoo and my new companion Sister Egan will be coming to Espoo. Sister Fronk will be going to Haaga which is right next to Espoo. So we are all close by and I am still serving with Elder Waite, Elder Hunter, Elder Crofts and Elder Kääria! So that will be really fun!
