Volleyball with the Zone
Dear Milne Family,
Well its been an interesting week for us here in Stockholm. The weather is still crazy. One minute it'll be pouring rain and the next minute clear skynajd sun shine. Right now it's gorgeous out. Sunny and 65 degrees. Perfect weather. We are hoping that it stays like this (probably won't) because a member invited all the missionaries over for a barbeque today!
This week we worked mostly with less active members. I love the less actives that we meet with. Some of the nicest people and they all have really interesting life stories. This week I got to meet some more friends from past areas. Lina, Elisabeth, and my man Jerry were visiting Stockholm from Karlskrona this week and we got to meet up and have lunch together. Elder Silvennoinen also served in karlskrona after me for 6 months so it was one big reunion for everyone. On Thursday we taught district meeting on understanding prayer. Prayer has been one of the more interesting things that I've studied about. obviously we do a lot of praying as a missionary but it is still so easy to just "go through the motions" and "cover all your bases" whenever you pray. During the district meeting we passed out a lot of quotes about prayer from past church presidents, discussed them, and then I finished with a little gospel according to Call in on how I understand prayer. In order to explain I need a whiteboard or something so ya'll can hear that later haha. But everyone thought it was good and the spirit was there. Me and silv love being the district leaders. Oh and we also found out that we will be staying together another transfer! We are both super happy about that.
In other news, I've kind of been struggling with my health lately. I've lost 10 pounds and I've been having stomach problems. Saturday and Sunday was really bad and I ended up missing church. I've noticed that something is up since I was in Kungsbacka but its slowly got more and more serious. I'm feeling fine today though. It kind of comes and goes I guess. Don't worry too much about me though I'll figure it out.
Sounds like y'all had a good week though. its crazy that its august already! I can't wait to hear about all the back to school stuff. You guys are so blessed to be able to meet with family so often. I'm glad to heat that Ty is playing good ball and that Carter had a nice birthday at the traditional red lobster haha. I love you all! I should be able to send pictures this Thursday when we go to the church for sports night!
Vi ses snart!
