Hyvä Joulu, Vapahtajasyntynyt Elder Ford

Hyvää Joulua to everyone back at home.

Well this week we got a little snow.. then it all melted. There concerned in Finland that it wont be a white christmas this year..  Guess well see.

So very busy week indeed.  We had a mission conference with Elder Dikes, hes the second counselor in the European area presidency, which was really great. He taught us how to do oragami missionary shirts to give to members. It was wonderful seeing everyone there.

We also had the ward christmas party this week. Funny story with that, about a month ago we met this old lady on the street and we asked if she liked doing family history work. We explained more about it and gave her a book of mormon. After that it has been 10 calls trying to get appointments set up with her but they never happen. I then called her to invite her to the ward christmas party and apparently she came and talked to us, but it had been so long since we had seen her, and she talked to us so briefly we didnt even know it was her. So later when I called her back she said she had been at the christmas party and finally connecting the dots we realized that was her. But all is good and we have an appointment with her this saturday to teach her how to do more family history work.  

Last week we also got to go to the temple. Wow, the Helsinki Temple is just the best. oh, and yesterday I got to finally see John Louis yesterday!! He is the person me and my old companion found and got baptized 2 weeks ago, it was soooo great to see him. He is a changed man, you can literally see the light of christ just beeming from him. It was so great to finally see him again.  

Merry Christmas to all, and remember in those quiet moments of a little babe in a manger.
