Hallisen! Kossen gr det?

Denne uken laget vi drss med mammas cookies. Jeg laget en masse papirbrettede skjorter med en ndelig tanke bakp. Vi pakket en 4-5 cookies-er inn i plastfolie og satte skjorten p topp. S ga vi dette ut til masse folk. Vi laget vel en 50 cookies, s det ble en del gi ut p en dag. Og wow, folk var veeldig imponert av bde cookies-ene og skjortene (og forhpentligvis budskapet bakp..). Men mange s rart p oss og spurte, har dere laget disse?? Som om det var noe helt nytt at en 19 ring kan flge en oppskrift, hahha. Var ikke akkurat jeg som fant opp cookies. Uansett var folk veldig fornyde.

Ah, men kypriotiske mat er himmelsk, og ofte veldig enkelt. Innebrer som regel halloumi-ost og oliven. Tror jeg aldri har smakt halloumi-ost fr faktisk. P fredag hadde vi en leksjon med Κίκη og Σάββας. Vi startet med litt mat p bordet, og de bare kom ut med mer og mer mat. Fr vi hadde avsluttet leksen var det et stort mltid. Bl.a. ferskt brd, halloumi-ost, tomat, agurk, kirsebr. Det som var kult er at men ikke stabler opp maten opp brdet og s spiser, man bare tar en og en bit av det man vil. En bit agurk, s kanskje en bit brd, ost, tomat osv. Det samme med vannmelon ost og jordbr. Genialt. 

Vi traff p og kom i snakk med en restaurant eier som fortalte da han hrte jeg var norsk, at de har nordmenn over hver uke en fast tid. S vi gikk der og mtte p masse av de samme folkene fra 17 mai! Ei dame som var der fortalte at hun pleide visst vre sammen med en "mormoner" for en stund siden. S det var gy. Vi ble invitert til komme innom en annen dag de samles. 

Masse gode leksjoner denne uken. S det er vi veldig fornyd med.

Vi var i Lefkosia/Nikosia denne uken. Litt trening fra lederne og misjonspresidenten vr. Det var et veldig bra mte. Det var masse lyn og torden ute under mte, s vi flte at det ble undervist med masse kraft!

Vi fastet denne uken. Nr en fast gr en normalt sett gr uten mat og drikke i ca 24 timer nr en skal faste for spesielle grunner. Og det funker hver gang. Men her kan vi ikke g uten vann i 24 timer. Da hadde vi visnet ute i varmen og i solen hele dagen. Sett ut som noen trre innskrumpete rosiner innvendig og utvendig ;) Forrige uke f.eks. var det en fdsel i Limassol. Babyen ble fdt med livstruende problemer. I tillegg ble det en enorm regning med fortsatt flere underskelser i vente som kom til koste masse. Det kom som en stor overraskelse for dem. Vi ba og fastet for denne babyen og familien. N ser det ut til g bra. Jeg fikk sett babyen p sndag, en skjnn bitte bitte liten baby, og alt var vel. 

nske dkkr alle ein rektig god uke.

Hi! How is it going?:)

This week we made a load of mom's cookies.  I made lots of mini paper shirts with a spiritual thought behind. We wrapped a 4-5 Cookie and put the shirt on top. We gave this out to lots of people. We made about 50 cookies, so we had a lot to give out in on day. And wow, people were very impressed by both cookies, and the shirts (and hopefully the message behind ..). But many was wondering, 'have you made these ?? " As if it were something entirely new that a 19 year old can follow a recipe. It is not like it was me that invented cookies. Anyway, people were very satisfied.

Ah, Cypriot food is heavenly, and often very simple. Usually involves halloumi cheese and olives. I have never tasted halloumi cheese before actually. On Friday we had a lesson with Κίκη and Σάββας. We started with some food on the table, and they just came out with more and more food. Before we had finished the lesson it was a big meal. Fresh bread, halloumi cheese, tomato, cucumber, cherry. What was cool is that instead of stack up food on top of the bread and then eat, you take one bit of what you want. A slice of cucumber, maybe a bit of bread, cheese, tomato etc. The same with watermelon cheese and strawberries. It is actually brilliant.

We met and talked with a restaurant owner who told me when he heard I was Norwegian, that they have Norwegian there every week on a fixed time. So we went there and met a lot of the same people from May 17th party! A woman who was there told me that she used to date a "Mormon" a while ago. So that was fun. We were invited to come back another day, so we will be back J.

Lots of good lessons this week. So we are very happy with that.


We were in Lefkosia / Nicosia this week. Some training from the mission assistants and mission our president. It was a very good meeting. There were lots of thunder and lightning outside during the meeting, so we felt that it was really taught with power!

We fasted this week. When we fast we normally go without food and drink for about 24 hours when there are things that we like to help or support. And it works every time. But here we cannot go without water for 24 hours. So we do drink water. If not, we had completed dried out in the heat and strong sun all day. Last week for example. it was a baby born in Limassol. The baby was born with life-threatening issues. In addition, there was an enormous bill that the parents need to attend due to the fact that they need to do a lot of test and follow up. We prayed and fasted for this baby and family. Now it seems to be going well. We got to see the baby on Sunday, a beautiful tiny tiny little baby, and now all is well.

Wish you all a continue good week.
