This following was copied from Sister Nelson's email: "This week has been so great! Tuesday we had a great lesson with some of our investigators. They are Russian and so cute. It has been super icy lately, so on the way there I totally slipped on my bike, and they my bike hit Sister Carter's bike and we both went down. Of course after sitting laying on the ground for a few minutes feeling like we were dead, we took some pictures. I died laughing at them. Hope you enjoy. haha
This week we had exchanges with the Kuopio sisters- Sister Margetts and Sister Cain. So we rode a bus down there. It was only like 6 hours. Kuopio is super pretty. It has a small homey feel. The sisters bought us "Christmas" presents because we didn't see each other for Christmas. They are fun.
Friday we had a great day! We rode a train back to Oulu and then did some weekly planning. Exciting stuff. That evening we went to a new area where we were not able to get to by bike, but now that we have a car we tracted down there! Yay! We met 4 people and set up appointments and handed out like 12 books of mormon in one evening. It was pretty cool. Miracle people. We even saw a guy in a wheelchair trying to wheel with one hand, while it was snowing outside so we pulled over and helped. He let us help! It made my day.
Saturday we had a lesson with our investigator who is getting baptized next weekend. We are so excited for him. He is super excited too. He has been wanting to be baptized for so long! Now he can! We explained baptism. Sister Carter and I did a demonstration. haha.That day we also helped a member film her video. She does her own songs that are very uplifting church messages.
Sunday was a great day as well. We had a lesson appointment but she wasn't home. So we tracted the area. Everyone was very nice to us. Yesterday, we had a lesson with a reactivating member. She is very sweet. She had this cute cat that really liked me. So much that he peed on my boots, scarf and gloves. haha. We also went to a lesson last night. It was a young couple who have the cutest baby and She makes Kookoo sounds. They are very sweet people.
Its been a great week as a missionary. I feel so blessed to serve with such amazing people." - Sister Nelson
