Time has flown by!

Hey er´body!
This week just flew by so quick. Not too much time today but weird to think I am only writing two more of these emails until my time is through as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Sweden. 

Time has flown by! We are preparing one of the girls we teach for baptism next week which is my last week. Her name is Marvic and I have written about her before but she is from the Philippines and she has such strong faith! She is so ready, and it is such a blessing to be able to work with someone like her from the beginning and be there as a guide and teacher in helping her find answers to her questions and help her come closer to God. 

Every time after watching General conference for these past two years, I have realized how awesome this church really is and how lucky we are to have what we have. Especially being in areas where the church isnt so strong with branches and wards in Sweden ranging between 150 members that come every Sunday to 4 members that come every Sunday. With the restored gospel in the world, there are so many things that are available to us and its a blessing to be a part of it! 

Hope everyone has a good week! I’m taking off now to go on a nice P day hike with the other Elders in Västerås. 

Love you all!
