Hellluu te du som gidde fylla me p bloggen! Sl deg laus! :-)

Okay, ny uke med masse nytt. Jeg blir flyttet tilbake til Paphos! Pizza i lange baner. Vi traff p en strandet mann, vi har forberedt oss p gjre klar leiligheten til de neste som kommer ;) pluss jeg har lrt mye om skriftene denne uken.

Etter ha vrt her i Limassol for 12 uker, blir jeg flyttet tilbake til Paphos (ogs p Kypros) p onsdag, som var det omrdet hvor jeg var fr Limassol. Og gjett hvem jeg skal tjene sammen med! Elder Rantaniemi! Kompanjongen jeg hadde p MTC, s jeg gleder meg kjempe masse. Han er en god fyr og vi har ftt et godt omrde arbeide i. Men jeg skulle nske jeg fikk litt mer tid her i Limassol fordetom. Det er ikke s mye som skjer her med tanke p underskere og snt, s jeg hpet at jeg kunne snudd litt p det. Jeg kommer til savne medlemmene her. Fantastiske folk. Φανή, Ηλίας som alltid er morsomme og utrolig gy vre rundt dem. Charlotte og Amanda som er utrolig sterke medlemmer og som vi har blitt godt kjent med. 

President Anderson, Charlotte, Amanda Clarke og meg :)

David en fin fyr som ble nylig dpt, s vi underviser ham fortsatt innimellom. Denne uken var vi innom han bestilte vi 4 pizzaer. Det var meg og elder Clarke, de to andre misjonrene her, David og en venn av David. S det var nok pizza kan du sei. Jeg tror aldri jeg har spist s mye pizza fr. Ph! 

Jeg m fortelle om John som vi traff nettopp. En litt forvirret type. Er faktisk medlem. Vi traff p ham nr stranden og han hadde en litt spesiell historie fortelle. Han er fra England, har bodd i Hong Kong i 23 r og har familien der. Han er hydrolikk ingenir og jobber der han finner jobb. Han fikk en jobb i Afrika p en plattform, men siden han fant jobben p Kypros, s han mellomlanda her. S gikk plutselig jobb kontrakten hans i dass, s de mtte sende ham tilbake fra Afrika. Siden han startet jobben via Kypros sendte de han tilbake her, uten penger. Og her har han vert i 6 mneder, sover ute, lever p brd, vann? (e d Tore Tang mon tro?)? og frukter fra trrne her (det er det nok av). Vi m prve finne ut litt mer om ham og se om vi kan klare f sent han hjem til familien sin i Hong Kong. Virker som en veldig vond situasjon. Han har aldri spurt oss om penger eller hjelp. Ville bare f kontakte familien og biskopen hjemme.

Siden jeg drar til Paphos og Clarke til Athen kommer det to andre inn. S vi bestemte oss for lage en overraskelse. Og igjen s innebrer det flasker. Masse flasker. Dere fr se bilde nedenfor. Frankinflaske. Skulle gjerne vert en flue p veggen nr de kommer inn dren. 

Vi drog sammen med de andre misjonrene for ha en avskjeds sleepover.Det var orthodox pske i helgen. Vi fikk lov til g klokken ti om kvelden og vre med p festen til klokken ett om natten. Det var veldig kult se. Alle kysse p masse forskjellige ikoner. Og nr papaden kom inn var det lange k for kyssa klrne hans, og ringene. Litt spesielt se p. Spesielt med the holy light som spredte seg utover hele salen etter hvert som lysene ble tent.

Jeg har konsentrert meg mye om skriftene denne uken. Studerer dem daglig som alltid, men mer i dybden denne uken. Jeg er utrolig takknemlig for at vi har skriftene. Fr var det noe upersonlig og kaldt for meg. Gamle profeter som har vert dde i tusener av r i mange av tilfellene. Men det er noe utrolig med skriftene. Bde Mormons Bok og Bibelen. Jeg har lrt elske dem. De har blitt veldig personlige for meg, og det er noe jeg vil dele med alle rundt meg. Utrolig nok kan de hjelpe med sm og store problemer, og har oppskriften p bli mer lykkelig. Hres nok merkelig ut dette, men lover det. Det er bare prve dem ;) 

snakkes grabbiser, blei litt mye idag. :p

Haya to all of you that still bother to follow my blog! Be not a stranger.

Okay. A new week with lots of news. I will be moving back to Paphos! Extreme amount of Pizza. We found a stranded man and we have prepared the apartment for the new missionaries that are coming ;) plus I've learned a lot from the scriptures this week.

I have been in Limassol for 12 weeks now. I will move back to Paphos (also in Cyprus) this Wednesday. This was the area where I was before Limassol. Guess who I will serve together with? Elder Rantaniemi! He was my companion in the MTC. I'm looking forward to work with him again. He is a good guy and we've got a good area that we will be working in. I wish I had some more time here in Limassol however. It is not so much going on here with investigators and stuff, so I was hoping that I could leave the area better then I do. I'm going to miss the members here. Wonderful people: Φανή, Ηλίας which is always fun to be around. We have also been very close with some of the strong members here like Charlotte and Amanda.

David, a really nice guy who was recently baptized. We teach him still occasionally. This week when we visited him we ordered four huge pizzas. It was me and elder Clarke together with the other two missionaries here plus David and a friend him. We had more then enough pizza. I think I've never eaten so much pizza before.

I have to tell you about John that we found near by the beach. He is a little confused person, but actually a member. He has a special story. He is from England, but have lived in Hong Kong for 23 years. He has his family there. He is hydraulic engineer, working where he find work. He got a good job in Africa on a rig. On his way to Africa he had to stop at Cyprus, since the company has an office here. When he came to Africa the company canceled the job, so they had to send him back. Since he started the job via Cyprus they sent him back here, without any money. So he have been stuck here for 6 months, sleeping outside, living on bread, water ... and the fruits from the trees here (there are plenty of this here). We must try to find out a little more about him and see if we can manage to return him home to his family in Hong Kong. Seems like a very strange situation. He never asked us for money or assistance. He just wanted to contact his family and the Bishop at home.

Since I will move to Paphos and Clarke to Athens there are two new elders coming in. We decided to make a small surprise for them. Again it involves bottles. Lots bottles. You'll see picture above. We call him Frankinbottle. Should loved to be in the room when they enter the apartment.

We had a sleepover with the other missionaries in this area.
This because it was an Orthodox Easter weekend. We were given permission to go out at ten in the evening and join the party and allowed to come back one at the night. It was very cool experience. Everyone was kissing all kind of strange things. When the patriarch came there was long queue. They lined up for kissing his clothes and rings. That was a strange sight. Especially when the holy light started spread throughout the hall the more people brought candle light.

I have been very focused about the scriptures this week. I have studying them daily as before, but more into depth this week. I am incredibly grateful that we have the scripture. In past they were somewhat impersonal and kind of cold to me. Ancient prophets who have been dead for thousands of years in many cases. But this week I really felt blessed that we have these fantastic books. The Book of Mormon and the Bible. I learned to love them. They have become very personal to me, and it's something I want to share with everyone around me. They can help people in the world with large or small problems, and they are giving us a key to be more happy. Sounds strange when I say this, but I promises this. Just try them;)

Have a groovy week. sorry it was abit long this week. 

 


Φανή, Ηλίας, me and Clarke inside our church.
