Letter #91

Dear Family
Well, we are entering in on my last full week as a missionary. And boy is it exciting. So like on Friday, Saturday and Sunday its a National Holiday where lots of people get drunk. So basically, I will be clockin out early!!! JUST KIDDING!!!
The weather last week was crazy!! We started the week with a slight chance of rain and a new companion and guess what?? they both came to pass!!!! (I´ve read the BOM a lot:) My new and last and 12th companion is Elder Bunker from St.George. Way cool guy!!!!
Cool experiance, we had 3 non members show up to church and 2 came with our help. :) Spiritual moment of the week was a 8 hour Zone Meeting we had. my last. Way cool.
I love you all and next weeks letter/email will be really short.

Not that I have been any good at writing long and descriptive, spiritually detailed, love inspiring, and uplifiting emails any way. I just wanted to let yall know whats going down next week.
IM COMING HOME!!!!! (Houston, we have lift off!!!!)

Dear Family

last week was good. I am OFFICIALLY trunky i think. It hit half way through the week. BUt we are staying busy!!
We have a baptism this Saturday!!! woo hoo!!! go team!!! She is SO cool!! the girl being baptized. This ward is sweet and I love hte members here!!
Some of the members dont remember my name, they just remember I leave in June. And every week they ask, "So when do you leave??? ah ha....." so yeah that doesnt help.
I love repentance and the chance we all have to change for the better. I love my Savior and His uplifting power to help us. I am excited to be the man that my Heavenly Father wants me to be and I need all the help I can get.

I love you all and I love missionary work. Have fun and be safe!!! I love the Bood of Mormon and Rauma. the city I am in.

Dear Family
So, this week was really great!!! i must confess it felt like it was the Longest week ever but I dont know why. It feels for ever ago that I talked with yall on skype!!
Well, we had some REALLY great lessons with our Baptismal canidate. she loves the Gospel and the Ward. Among a lot of the really amazing responses she gave to the question we asked her Why do you want to be baptized, she said that she wants to "belong to a group where she knows she belongs." and i thought how true that is of ALL Gods children who by spiritual birth belong to His Eternal Ideal Home for their happiness.
I love this work and I am very excited for the chance I have to be here and love the Finnish people. I love Finland!! I think Springs and Summers are great when the warmth of Summer melts the depressing darks of Winter to the shady corners of the world. Nothing better than to have a hard time sleeping only because the sun has chosen to shine on you in the middle of the night when its light never reaches another poor soul down below. BUt, thats life. hahaa

I lvoe you all and I hope you have a great Week!!!! i have 5 more weeks and a bit of days left. not that anyone is counting or somehting(aparently I am friends!!) have fun and feel the Spirit!!! Learn with "Eyes, ears, minds and Hearts!!!" i know that God loves us all!!! no matter what happens. I love this Gospel and I love you!! if you dont feel it, know it or any doubt of the sort, please write me a hand letter and I will talk about that with you. if not, a hand written letter wont be underappreciated!!! (double negative) love ya!!
