I am in Tampere! It is one of the major cities, and it is kinda weird. But so good, and so cold! My trainer's name is Sisar Kokkonen and she is from Hawaii but her father is Finnish (hence the last name). She is amazing! she has been out on her mission for a year and served in only two areas.
I am talking to people, every day, all day where ever we go. It actually exhausts me, but I am hoping that I will get better with a lot of practice. I can’t say a ton in Finnish still, but I try. I start half of our conversations and I stop people on the street all by myself. then Sisar Kokkonen usually has to take over because I can’t understand like anything. I try, and I add a testimony when I can, but it’s all good. I will get there in a few months and maybe sooner if I work hard and practice :) We contacted 89 people since last Wednesday. We handed out 19 copies of the Book of Mormon and taught a few lessons. We got a referral from the elders in Tampere yesterday and we went to visit the referral and had an amazing lesson. At the end he said that he would be willing to be baptized if he found out it was true. So that was awesome! I think we really needed that, a good pick me up. We have plans to follow-up with him later in the week.
