Sometimes It's Just Hard.

June 8th, 2015
Hej Familj och Vänner,

Sometimes it's just hard. It's just a fact of missionary life. Missionaries aren't perfect people- they have good days and bad days. This week was one of those weeks for me.  One thing that has helped me is to think "What would Christ do in this situation?" I promise that the Holy Ghost will have an answer for that question if you can be honest enough to ask it.

I have come face to face with the fact that I think I am almost always right and I think my way is usually the high way. One lesson I am learning really well is the need to listen and be humble. Sometimes Sister Savage and I disagree (like most normal people) and I struggle to be humble! I struggle to not think my way is better. It's a super hard habit to break- to open yourself up to other opinions and not think you know better. I think a mission is the best marriage prep I could have asked for. 

This week we had a Stake Conference thing that was broadcasted from Scotland. Elder Holland spoke at it and it was translated to Swedish and broadcasted to us. He talked about the importance of the Book of Mormon. It is interesting to me how much they emphasize missionary work here in Europe. I feel like we talk about it way more here than we do in the states. Sister Savage and I have been going around and inviting members in Luleå to give the Book of Mormon to their friends. Think if every member of the Church gave one Book of Mormon away. 15 million more people would have a Book of Mormon!

I love you so much!

And here is my cute trainer. :) we only have about 2 more weeks together likely!

Zone Conference in Stockholm! Luleå Sisters and Boden Elders... The fearless four in the North...

It's been raining a lot here! I heard from our Branch President that it was the rainiest May in 40 years...

This is the name of one of our zone leaders!
