This week we also had one of the funniest things happen to us on the street. We were riding our bikes when we said hello to this couple walking together on the street. The lady got really excited so we stopped and she exclaimed that she knew exactly who we were and that she used to have sisters who would come and visit her and they would sing to her and talk with her and she loved it. She then commanded us to sing. At first I couldn't believe it and we both were questioning if we had heard right. Sister Nyman then asked if she was asking us how long we had been here but she said "No, Sing!" It is not a normal thing for people to tell you to just stop on the street and sing to them so we told her that we would. So she then told us to ride our bikes ahead to a nearby park and get our hymn book ready for us to sing to her. Ummm... Ok? So we biked ahead and it was a huge blessing that Sister Nyman actually had copies of songs with her. They then came and sat on the bench and we sang to them! We sang "Sua tarvitsen ma aina" or "I need thee every hour". They both then jumped up and hugged us both. Yep, the husband too. We never know what to do in that situation. She told us that she will come when she comes..... basically that she isn't ready yet but that she will be eventually. Very few people actually know that they aren't ready. Anyway, it was really fun :)
This Sunday was the best! Some members from Espoo were in Oulu this weekend and it was so good to see them. I absolutely love them. They are such a cute family and it really just made my day to see them. It made me feel so good when they were actually really excited to see me too! We were able to get contact information so that we can stay in touch. It really was a tender mercy from the Lord. I loved being able to see them. It did make me so homesick for the south though. There are so many people there that I love so much and miss incredibly. Gisel calls me all of the time and she even sent a ring up with another sister for me. She is the best and I absolutely love her so much. I love these people. They are amazing!
Thank your for all of the love and support!
