Spring is coming!

The first flowers we have seen!    
The beautiful sunset outside our apartment. 

 We had splits with the Sister Training Leaders on the 21st and oh my goodness it was a blast! Sister Hales (from Nevada) and Sister Harris (from California) came and spent the night and the whole day with us. It was so much fun and so much work! We talked to 107 people in one day and passed out 17 BOMs and had a blast. They are so amazing and I love them and look up to them so much.

We also had another opportunity to go on splits on Saturday afternoon because it was Stake Conference so everyone in our zone was here. The Jyväskulä sisters stayed with us for the night, so I went on splits with Sister Yost (from Indiana).

Interim in Helsinki

The Helsinki Temple was amazing. It’s simple and yet so beautiful, just like Finland! I'm so glad I got to go to the temple again.

The mission home in Helsinki.

Interim was very fun, so much information and I can’t believe that it’s already over. The time truly flies. It was so good to be surrounded by other amazing missionaries and the Watsons for 5 days and to eat Sister Watson's cooking and gain 20 pounds. So fun! It was so good for me to see all my MTC group again and to know that they are doing okay.  It was so good to see all of them happy and all of us united in doing the work. It truly was an amazing week.

A picture from our run in the mornings in Helsinki. Isn’t it so beautiful?

The sunset in Tampere at 2100. It’s starting to stay light so late. Crazy!

Nothing super interesting this week, just a drunk guy hit on Sisar Kokkonen our first night back in Tampere and guessed her age to be 40. We laughed pretty hard afterwards and said, 'welcome back to Tampere sisters!!' and that was pretty great. Anyways, life is so good, the work is moving forward, and being a missionary is an amazing opportunity!
