Hallo, hallo! 

Vi er inne i juli n, fuktigheten er p topp og delegger kjleskapet og sjelen. 

Det var faktisk s mye fuktighet i luften at kjleskapet ikke klarte jobbe imot, s kjleskapet kondenserte vannet i luften for fort og spyttet ut alt. :-) 

Vi var p en tur oppe i fjellet denne mandagen ca 1500 moh med hele sonen. Der var det mindre fuktighet, s det var herlig. Vi sjekket ut et skianlegg som er pent om vinteren. Var ikke store bakken akkurat, men har hrt at det er det srligste skianlegget. (Nord for ekvator regner jeg med.) 

Jeg disset p en huske og fikk plutselig altfor stor fart, gikk godt over 90 grader og landet rett p ryggen. Jeg forventet miste pusten eller noe, men alt gikk helt fint. Eldste Fagg derimot "mistet" pusten var helt mlls. Han var sikker p at jeg var blitt lam i fra rygg og ned etter fallet. :-) 

Vi fant en familie denne uken. De har lyst til lre mer og se hvordan vi har det i kirken. S de kommer nok i kirken neste uke. Det hadde vrt utrolig. Denne sndagen hadde vi 33 stykker i kirken! S vi gikk fra 9 til 33 s det er jo bra. Det var fordi vi hadde masse turister, og underskere ogs. Noen av turistene traff vi kvelden fr. Ei av dem var misjonr her for 20 r siden, s det var kjempe gy hre hvordan misjonen var p den tiden. 

Men ja, 33 stykker. Det var som i filmen "Biler", nr folk endelig kommer for beske Radiator By. Og helt serist, Paphos og Limassol er Radiator By. F medlemmer, alle noks spesielle, forskjellige sterke personligheter, fungerer nesten som en familie, og er helt i 100 for besk og underskere! hahha. Elske den filmen. God film. 

En kveld hadde vi whiteboarding. Jeg kom i snakk med en svenske, og ph! Det var vanskelig snakke med ham!! Jeg forsto alt han sa selvflgelig, men nr jeg mtte tenke p Norsk, i farten. Det bare funket ikke. Null sjanse. Greske og Engelske ord poppet inn. Jeg klarte ikke oversette tilbake til Norsk. Det var forferdelig. N, nr jeg tenker tilbake til ordene jeg ikke fant, er det lettere. Men p sparket var jeg helt ute. 

Vi har og undervist en del folk denne uken. Det er utrolig flott se nr folk begynner forst. Nr de begynner forandre seg selv. Nr de tar en absolutt 180 grader i livene deres. Nr de begynner f et vitnesbyrd er det som en rullende sten. Ingenting kan stoppe den. Det gjr virkelig en stor forskjell i livene deres nr de forstr Kristi forsoning.

Hbe dkkr alle har ein knallgoe uga, fokusere p det posetiva og e nille me kverandre ;) s snakkes me neste uga! ^^

Hello, hello!
We are now in July, the humidity is at its peak and it is destroying our refrigerator and our souls. :-)

We actually had so much moisture in the air that the fridge failed to work. The refrigerator condensed water in the air too fast and suddenly splatted out everything.

We were on a trip in the mountains this Monday about 1,500 meters above sea level with the entire zone. There it was less moisture, so it was wonderful. We checked out a ski resort that is open only in the winter. Was not big resort to be honest, but I have heard that it is the ski resort furthest at south. (North of the equator I guess.)

I was on a swing and suddenly I had too much speed, went well above 90 degrees and landed right on my back. I expected to beat the air out of my lungs or something, but everything went just fine. Elder Fagg lost his breath and was absolutely speechless.

He was sure that I was paralyzed from my neck and down after the fall. :-)

We found a family this week that we are teaching. They have the desire to learn more and like to see how we it is in the church. They will come to church next week. So I?m so exited. This Sunday we had 33 people at the church! So we went from 9 to 33 in one week so it's good. We had lots of tourists, and investigators as well. Some of the tourists we met the night before. One of them was a missionary here 20 years ago, so it was fun to hear how the mission was at the time. But yes, 33 pieces. It was like in the movie "Cars," when people finally come to visit Radiator City. And truly, Paphos and Limassol is like the Radiator City. Few members, all rather special, different strong personalities, works almost like a family, and is so exited when we have visitors and investigators! hahha. Love that movie. Good movie.

One evening we had whiteboarding. I started to talk with a Swede, and ph! It was so hard to speak with him !! I understood everything he said of course, but when I had to think in Norwegian, on the spot, it just did not work. No chance. Greek and English words popped up. I could not translate back to Norwegian. It was terrible. Now, when I think back of the words I did not find, it's much easier. But at the moment, I was completely lost.

We have taught quite a few people this week. It's incredibly nice to see when people begin to understand. When they begin to change themselves. When they take an absolute 180 degrees in their lives. When they begin to gain a testimony, it is like a rolling stone. Nothing can stop them. It really makes a big difference in their lives when they understand the Atonement of Christ.

I hope you all will have a fabulous week. Focus on what positive and be nice to each other ;) And then I?ll see you next week! ^^
