A few cool things from this past week....

A few cool things from this past week. We had exchanges in Jyväskylä (say that one out lout;)) and it was so fun and such a beautiful city! My camera was momentarily out of service while we were there, so I didn’t get any pictures, but I will take some when we go to Turku this week for exchanges. I learned a lot from the sisters in Jyväskylä., they are both great examples of loving the area you serve in and the members you serve with. I even got to teach this way cool new investigator of theirs and he committed to baptism. With our own investigator, he gave an amazing comment in church this past week. we were talking in Sunday School about how you don’t need to speak the same language as someone to know the gospel is true and he said, "That’s right, because we all speak the language of the spirit." He is AMAZING! He will be baptized on the 13th of May, and I know he will be ready. We also had a zone training where all of our zone came to Tampere and we and the Zone Leaders gave some direction on studying and teaching our investigators. Life has been really good, and I feel so blessed to be serving in such a beautiful and awesome place.

Back to Tampere...

Well, the time has come for me to leave the magical city of Oulu and head back to an old time favorite.... drum roll please.... I will be going back to TAMPERE!!!  Man, I am so excited! I will be the other ward and in the Sister Training Leader’s area, but  it will be good to go back to my first area. Life is good! It only gets better too because I will be companions with my MTC companion Sister Roberts! How awesome is that :) We are going to have a blast! I am truly excited. It’s so sad to leave Oulu though. This is my home in Finland. I love it here and the people so much. But I know to all things there is a time and a season and I am excited to go do some hard work with other amazing people. 

Good-bye for now Sisar Nelson and Oulu!
