This week I will start English and do the Norwegian. :)

Hello, relatives and friends and creeper stalkers, another two good weeks, with a new comp and new blessings to harvest.

Once again have a transfer 6uker-passed, and changes have taken place?. Wait for it? wait for it? ... I will be staying in Paphos and Elder Rantaniemi will move to Nicosia! And guess what, Elder Dagry will be my new companion! Weeey!
Dagry came from the same MTC group as me. So he has also been out for almost 11 months. He is from France, he is amazing on the piano, and I'm excited to serve with him. It will be great! ^^ We were the both in Athens at the same time, and have both been in Cyprus since and have always a lot of fun together.

Me approaching 11 months out on my mission I think I finally starting to get used to not being "home". Up until now I feel the urge to check my pocket for my iPhone when I see a "free wifi" sign : p So I finally starting to get rid of my old bad habits, hahha!



I can start with last week. We did bowl with George. What a man. Always funny, always has a comment. Hehe, always difficult to explain what is legal / appropriate for missionaries and what is not. So the other elders gave him a white handbook, where everything is explained, that he can now read. So he has lots of comments on what it says, hahha. Trying to remember some of his comments. We had a very deep conversation physics since 4 of us are very interested in things like this. We talked about different types of substances, as well as hypothetical substances. After a brain flows discussion he said... Okey, look, there is only two types of matter. Does and doesn't I fell to the ground.

We have hung up some flyers around town, free English and Greek courses, we teach each week. A guy called and was interested in our Greek course. He knew lot of words already, but little about conjugations cases, bends, sentence structure and general grammar. So we taught him this week. He was also interested in learning about what we believe. He had read a bit online, and felt that this was something he ought to investigate more. We continued to teach him about the gospel after the language course.

Btw Emil lost the chess game that we've had with coordinates from week to week;)

I went one day without shave, for we had to get up extra early to serve in a hospice. Next morning I put some ink to create fake beard, or to reinforce what I had already after one day. Ah, I'd photographed my companion face when he saw it. He was totally confused. It looked pretty real, but it was of course too much after just one day. hahha. It took some time before he realized that it was just a joke. : P Took a picture, dont show it that good though...



This week:

I feel I should start with tell about a fun event, hahha. We were a trio last Monday and we had a lesson with Κίκη, a policewoman. She looooove to hear when we pray, she can never get enough. We have at least three prayers every time we are there. On Monday, she explained why she likes it so much. She said because she feels that God does hear us, we are young, innocent, missionaries and close to God. Rantaniemi explained:yes, God hears us and then said: "ο Θεός σας ακούει, εκείνος ακούει τους κακούς επἰσης" which means ?God hears you, he hears the bad / wicked too?. Me and Kitsell looked at eachother and fell on the ground with laughter. It came completely unexpectedly, it took some time and then he understood and what he had just said. Took a few minutes, and then we had the spirit with us again;)

So now I serve with Elder Dagry. That is so cool. We have already taught a lot together even though we do not been together more then one week. I see that there is lots that I can learn from him.

In recent weeks we have eaten plenty of cactus fruit, that we get from some friends. Yesterday we were out walking passing a cactus. It was a while since the last meal so I thought ah, it looks good. It was not very smart. For eve non the fruit there is a lots of tiny needles. The next thing that happened was that I had needles in my whole hand. I think I still have some in my hand. Lesson learned, never again. (But I got one fruit at least. Almost worth it. Lets call it 1-1)

Again we see we miracles every day. Small example from the previous day. We had a scheduled lesson with someone. But they were not home.

We were a little disappointed since we would have wasted over an hour in travel for nothing. But when we were going to take the bus home, then a guy came and had some good questions to us.  

We had a good conversation for 5 minutes before he had to go. The second he walked away the investigators came home. They were abit tight up and they came 10 min late. Had it not been for the man who stopped us, we would have wasted an evening and not been able to help Ανδρέας with his troubles.

The Lord works in mysterious ways.

Please have a good week all you people and fairies <3

Avell, slekt og venner og creeper stalkere, nok to goe uger, med ny comp og nye velsignelser.

Atter en gang har et transfer-6uker-passert, og forandringer tar plass. Drumroll... Jeg blir i Paphos og Elder Rantaniemi flytter til Nikosia! Og gjett hva, Elder Dagry kommer hit! Weeey! 

Dagry er ogs fra samme MTC gruppe som meg. S han har ogs snart vrt ute i 11 mneder. Han er fra Frankrike, utrolig p pianoet, og jeg gleder meg kjempe til tjene sammen med han. Det blir bra! ^^ Vi var jo begge to i Athen p likt, og ellers har begge to vrt i Kypros siden, og har det alltid gy sammen. 

Nrmer seg 11 mneder ute, og jeg tror jeg endelig begynner bli vandt til ikke vre "hjemme". Helt fram til n har jeg alltid skjekket lommen nr jeg ser et "free wifi" skilt :p S jeg begynner avvende meg de drlige vanene endelig, hahha!

Jeg kan starte med forrige uke. Vi gikk og bowlet med George. For en mann. Alltid morsom, har alltid en kommentar. Hehe, alltid vanskelig forklare hva som er lov/passende for misjonrer og hva som ikke er. S de andre eldstene gav ham en white handbook, der hvor alt er forklart, som han n leser. S han har masse kommentarer til det som str der, hahha. Prver huske noen av kommentarene hans. Vi hadde en veldig dyp fysikk samtale siden 4 av oss er veldig interessert i snnt. Vi snakket om forskjellige typer stoffer, samt hypotetiske stoffer. Etter en hjernetrimmene diskusjon sa han. Okey, look, there is only two types of matter. Does and doesn't. Jeg datt i bakken. 

Vi har hengt opp en del flyers rundt omkring i byen, gratis Engelsk og Gresk kurs, som vi underviser hver uke. En fyr ringte oss og var interessert i gresk kurset. Han kan masse ord allerede, men lite om konjugasjoner cases, byninger, setningsstruktur og generelt grammatikk. S vi underviste ham denne uken. Han var ogs interessert i lre om hva vi tror p. Han hadde lest litt online, og flte at dette var noe han burde underske mer. Vi fortsatte undervise ham om evangeliet etter sprkkurset. 

Btw Emil tapte p sjakkspillet som vi har hatt med koordinater fra uke til uke ;)

Jeg gikk en dag uten shave, for vi mtte opp ekstra tidlig for gjre tjeneste p et hospice. Neste morning brukte jeg litt blekk for lage fake skjegg, eller forsterke det jeg allerede hadde etter en dag. Ah, jeg skulle tatt bilde av kompanjongen mins ansikt nr han s det. Han var helt forvirret. For det s ganske ekte ut, men det var jo selvflgelig alt for mye etter kun en dag. hahha. Det tok lang tid fr han skjnte at det bare var tull. :p Tok et bilde, viser ikke "skjegget" s veldig, men litt

Denne uken:

M nesten starte med en morsom hendelse, hahha. Vi var en trio forrige mandag og vi hadde en leksjon med Κίκη, ei politikvinne. Hun eeelsker hre nr vi ber, hun fr aldri nok. Vi har minst tre bnner hver gang vi er der. P mandag forklarte hun hvorfor hun liker det s godt. Hun sa fordi hun fler at Gud virkelig hrer oss, vi er unge, uskyldige, misjonrer og nr Gud. Rantaniemi forklarte ja, Gud hrer oss og s sa han: "ο Θεός σας ακούει, εκείνος ακούει τους κακούς επἰσης" som i betydning blir Gud hrer deg, han hrer de slemme/ugudelige ogs. Meg og Kitsell knakk i sammen og datt i bakken av latter. Den kom heilt uventet, det tok litt tid og s forstod han og hva han nettopp hadde sagt. Tok et par minutter, og s hadde vi nden med oss igjen ;)

S n tjener jeg alts sammen med Eldste Dagry. Kanon. Vi har ftt undervist sammen en del selv om vi ikke engang har vert sammen en uke enn. Masse jeg kan lre av ham. 

De siste ukene har vi spist masse kaktus-frukt, som vi fr fra noen venner. I gr var vi ute og gikk forbi en kaktus, det var en stund siden forrige mltid s jeg tenkte ah, den s god ut. Det var ikke s veldig smart. For til og med frukten har visst masse bitte sm nler fr man skreller dem. Det neste som skjedde var at jeg hadde nler i hele hnden. Har en enda fliser i hnden. Lesson learned, aldri igjen. (Men jeg fikk den ene fruken i hvert fall. Nesten verd det. Du kan vel kalle det 1 - 1)

Igjen vi ser vi mirakler hver dag. Lite eksempel fra grsdagen. Vi hadde en planlagt leksjon med noen. Men de var ikke hjemme. Vi var litt leie oss siden vi ville ha kastet bort over en time i reise for ingenting. Men da vi skulle til ta bussen hjem, s dukket det opp en fyr som ville snakke med oss. Vi hadde en god samtale i 5 minutter fr han mtte g. Sekundet han gikk s kom de underskerene som vi skulle underviste. Hadde det ikke vrt for den mannen som stoppet oss opp, hadde vi kastet bort en kveld og ikke hatt muligheten til hjelpe Ανδρέας med problemene hans. Herren jobber p underlige mter. 

Ha ein gruvanes forteffelige uga folk og fe <3
