|Rock in the shape of a dog... woooo..|
It started off awesome! Last monday was our preporation day and we decided to go drive to the top of Gotland Island and then take a fairy to another island called FårÖ. This isalnd was awesome but on the way up we made a bunch of other stops. We went with President Madden (The president of our little group of members here in Gotland) and three new members here. We stoped by a lot of famous historical super old sights.

Something awesome that happened was Äldste Jämsä and I both had the impression to call this guy that they used to meet with. He actually loved the discussions that Äldste Jämsä and his old companion gave him and he had gotten a powerful answer that it is right and that the Book of Mormon is true. He is a refugee from Afghanistan and has only lived here for 4 months. When he got the answer that the Book of Mormon was true he wanted to change his name so he opened up the Book of Mormon and pointed to a name and said he wanted that to be his new name! It was "Nephi!" haha and he wants to legally change it. So that fun... But as time went on.. not baptized yet, he was getting negative pressure from friends about being a Christian. So his friends came out one day and told the Elders that he wasn’t interested anymore and he told them that as well... Ok.. Well now this last week is when we had the impression to contact him again. We met with him and had a Persian translator on the phone and the first thing he asked us is “When can I be baptized?" We were a little taken back but we talked to him for a while about what had happened last time with his friends and he told us everything that I just wrote. We then talked with him about baptism for a bit and why it is important to make sure he has the right intentions and is wanting to get baptized for the right reasons.. He is really ready and sincere! We scheduled his baptism to be this next Saturday in the Baltic Sea and it’s going to be awesome! So excited for that :)
|Big rock formations.. wooooo.|
Love you all and hope you have a great Easter weekend!

|Its a very flat island! There are only about 400 people that live on FårÖ|

|If look on that GPS, we were on that top island in Fårö |
and then the one under it is Gotland
|Jungfru rock! There is a really cool story behind that one. Don't have time to write it but it is a love story. <3|
