Letter #75

Dear Family
This week was pretty chill. a ton happened so I hope you are all buckled in and ready for such a week.
So starting two sundays ago, we took a bus(even though we have a car) all the way down to Espoo. Its only like a 30 minute bus ride but this is the funny thing. I talked with this pretty chill guy, the sad thing was, there was a another guy studying to become a priest in the Lutherin church infront of me, so he lovingly joined the conversation and kinda wanted to keep talking. but long story shortened, we missed our stop and went all the way to Helsinki because I was talking. :)
We got a ride though from the Elders back to Espoo for the night.
The next morning is usually p day, but because of my companions 6 week reunion in the contry there is a special meeting for him and all the other special greenies and there blessed trainers. That is the reason and it is SO fun. but kills your p day time. Got up in the morning and took a train to Helsinki and rode some trams and had the meeting. Same thing for 3 days. Thursday is a bit different, It is my companions 6 week language school. Learn language tips there and at the same time, the trainers(which is me:) get to go to the temple. now this gets tricky, because we for a district activity, we had planned on going to hte temple friday, and as a missionary you can only go to the temple 1 a month, so I didnt go when my companion was in his language school. but that night we were supposed to go back to our city but... we didnt have bus tickets and we had no idea were the bus station was in big ol Helsinki. So, we ended up staying another night and going to the temple the next morning but, thursday night was when I emailed. :)
After the temple on Friday, we had no bus tickets or money except for a big fat 50 euro mark. we took a short bus and the price was like 5 euros because we were not going very far and the bus didnt want the 50 so he said just get on. it was really nice and such a blessing. because there was NO way to plan for all this stuff that happened. oh, we also were carring a box of Book of Mormons. that was heavy. After this short distance bus we waited in the snow and cold for our real bus, and this time our big mark was accepted. :)
So, all in all. we got home to our area with only 2 days left in the week. pretty exciting.
I love missionary work!! and even these crazy unexpected things are sure fun!! I love you all and have fun while being safe too!!!
