6/9/2015 Vanhin Ford‏

Rakas Lapset,

Its been a really great week this week!!! My new companion is Elder Broadhead from Ohio. He is a boss, and we have been tearing it up this week it Neitsytpolku!  Last sunday we had 3 of our investigators in Church. Our investigator from Canada who is married to a finnish woman, our Eritrean investigator, and a new investigator we found tracting. We also got to set a baptisimal date with our Canadian investigator for after conference! So hopefully all goes well. Its crazy that General conference is nearly hear again. Wow, this 6 months has gone soo fast!  General conference is great, because it literally is better then Christmas when your a missionary. Haha, I was talking to a Finnish ward member and he was telling me how all the Americans treat General conference like a movie because they all bring candy and snacks, in a way he brings up a good point, but you cant go wrong with General conference Candy! 

This week it got way colder, literally one day it was summer, and now fall is here. But with that, since the Neitsytpolku ward is the largest in Suomi, they have a ton of YSA activities and institute, and we have been blessed with getting investigators to all of them. The work is going really really good here. The Lord has really blessed us in our finding.  

This week there was also a huge vintage car show in downtown Helsinki, and I didnt have my camera on me! There was sooo many nice Ford Mustangs and Lamborginis, I really wanted a picture by a Ford. I failed the number one rule of scouting. Be prepared.  But it was really funny, as we were crossing the street from that, these guys came up in this old classic BMW car blasting Venga boys from the speakers, and his car was hooked up with a megaphone, and he starting yelling GO AMERICA into it as we were crossing the street.  But.. Go america. 

We also got to meet with a less active this week and he said he would come to church again, so were really happy about that. The work is really moving forward here!!  

The pic is some sweet dragonfruit that my companion bought for 5 euros. But its not actually sweet at all. it tastes like nothing! 

Oh... if anyone wants a finnish tounge twister. here ya go.
