This week was definitely one for the books, haha! As crazy and embarrassing as it all was, it was a lot of fun! I have to say that this was just a really good week! I don't think that I have laughed so much in a week as I did this week!
Serving "With" My Friends
"Searching For Joy"
Well, one profession that Sister Fronk and I have started up is coming up with "Book Titles" for missionaries' missions from stories that they tell or things that are going on! So, for instance, once Elder Waite and Elder Hunter were talking about how they feel really separated from the ward out in Lohja and from everyone else because well.... they are! So they are "Lost in Lohja". We also had some sisters come and tell us how they were trying to find a former investigator named Fabrizio and how they used it as a door contacting approach, haha, by asking if Fabrizio lived there. So "Finding Fabrizio" is their book title! (though they haven't found him yet). Well, we finally came up with ours! We were with Gisel, a new convert, who is absolutely wonderful by the way, and she wanted to introduce us to her friend who isn't a member and also from the Philippines and her name is Joy. So we were looking everywhere for her in this big mall and couldn't find her anywhere and we just started joking about how we are all "Searching for Joy". So that became our title for our mission! And guess what! We found Joy! We also got to have a great lesson with her in the middle of this big mall that made her cry because the Spirit was so strong and now she is our new investigator! So the spirit really can work anywhere :)
Go Hide in The Woods
Hi! I'm Sister Fronk and I have stolen Sister Knapp's email so you can know the truth about her. She is about the most gutsy, hilarious, wonderful person ever! She is doing so well at being a missionary in Finland, which isn't easy. She works really hard at the language and has a natural gift for it that really impresses.
D&C 75:10 -12
"Calling on the name of the Lord for the Comforter, which shall teach them all things that is expedient for them-- Praying always that they faint not; and inasmuch as they do this, I will be with them even unto the end.... Behold, this is the will of the Lord your God concerning you. Even so. Amen."
I have to say that I love this Gospel and I am so grateful to be here in Finland! I apologize that this is so long! I love you all!
