Another 6 weeks transfer has past. And I'm still stationed here in Paphos :D

That's what I was hoping for. We've worked hard, and there are plenty of things happening very soon, so I'm very happy that I will stick around for six weeks more.

Last week was good. I got to celebrate my 20 year birthday and that was great. The Senior couple made us a real American breakfast. We eat so much that I did not have to eat for the rest of that day. Those Americans have some proper size on their breakfast I can tell you. And they topped it up with Cake and ice to desert. Are those Americans eating this for breakfast often I wonder?

And Drones. Yes. Haha, one of the other elders here in Paphos received a package from home where his brother put in a drone. So on Sunday we had to stop by the other elders for a visit, and clearly we had to try out the drone and fly around in the apartment;)

Ugh, I do not know if I like to tell about the visit that we had, but ok, I will. We traveled some distance to visit an investigator. Lets call him Obelix, since he really resembles Obelix. We always met at church for lessons until now. Puhh .. I expected a somewhat unorderly house, but this was ... absolutely terrible. It probably was not washed for several months. Ants and bugs everywhere. The worst must have been the smell. It must have been the combination of dog pooh everywhere and a toilet which nearly knocked me to the ground, so you can say it was some experience : p

We have no plans to take the long tour out to Obelix again. It is much better to teach him at church.

Other then this episode, the week was unbelievable. Again lots of good lessons. Especially good since those we teach starts to read the Book of Mormon regularly. It changes everything. Absolutely amazing actually what it does to them. Mostly because when they actually are doing something actively to find the answers to the questions they have. When they do this, they get the Holy Spirit in their lives. They start to understand things that they have struggled with for so long. If only everyone could understand how important it is to read regularly and actually pray for answers. For those who finally starts to understand the importance, they have suddenly a different atmosphere and attitude in their life.

I played chess with Dagry for the first time. A long game, lasted a few days, but I'm still unbeaten on my mission ^^ Accept one game I had with Sate, the pro chess player. I never finished that game with Sate, but I must admit, he would have beaten me in the playoffs, easily.

Haha. Lastly I must end with a guy that we often pass by. A very engaging guy. He has zero interest in the gospel, but we have had some conversations with him. Second time we saw him, he cried out to us:  eyy! Come here. And then he said to his friends, ?they are Jehovah's Witnesses!? So we had to explain pretty quickly that we were not JW. Next time we walked past him, he shouted again. Eyy! Come over here. These Christian witness. hahha xD Fair enough, I?ll go for that.

I have to tell you guys of something funny last transfer that I forgot to mention. Me and Rantaniemi was in the other elders apartment to pick up something. Me and Rantaniemi spoke with Kitsell. James walked by while he ate a dark cake chocolate.
Kitsell: What are you doing? We need that tomorrow for the cake we have to make!
James: But I'm hungry.
Kitsell: Take a slice of bread or something, you cannot eat up the ingredients for the cake, we need it! Moreover, you don?t like dark or cake chocolate.
James: I do not like it, but it's okay. * Continuing to eat the chocolate *
Kitsell ..............................
Hahha I almost fell to the ground. Hilarious to be in the present during the conversation between Kitsell being so frustrated and James 100% calm and neglectful.

Next week will be incredibly busy. We have a district meeting in Limassol, and then specialized training in Limassol and a district conference in Larnika for 2 days. so we need to work as much as we can and use the time we have in Paphos. ?All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us? - A smart guy with big hat;)

Da var nok et 6 ukers transfer forbi. Og jeg er fortsatt stasjonert i Paphos :D Det var det jeg hpet p. Vi har arbeidet hardt, og det er masse ting som skjer veldig snart, s jeg er veldig glad for at jeg har enda en 6 uker her. 

Forrige uke var bra, fikk feiret 20 rs dagen og alt slikt. Senior paret fikset oss ekte amerikansk frokost. Og vi snakker spass at jeg trengte ikke spise resten av dagen, for si det snn. Riktig amerikansk strrelse p den frokosten kan jeg fortelle. Kake og is ble det og nok av. Spise de slikt de Amerikanerne til frokost?

Drones. Yes. Haha, en av de andre eldstene her i Paphos fikk en pakke hjemmefra der broren hans hadde oppi en drone. P sndag mtte vi innom de andre eldstene fr et besk, og det er klart det ble litt flyging rundt i leiligheten ;) 

Huff, Vet ikke om jeg har s veldig lyst til fortelle om et besk som vi hadde, men la g. Vi reiste ut et stykke med en undersker?vi kan kalle ham Obelix, fordi han ligner noe helt vilt?som bor et stykke borte. Vi har alltid mtt i kirken for leksjoner frem til n. Phh.. Jeg forventet et noenlunde uryddig hus, men off... Helt forferdelig. Det har ikke blitt vasket der p mange mneder. Maur og insekter overalt. Det verste m ha vrt luften, det var tett og stinket. Det m vre en kombinasjon av hunden som gjr fra seg hvor som helst, og toalettet som nesten slo meg i bakken, s, det var en erfaring kan man si :p S vi har ingen planer om reise ut til Obelix igjen, da er det mye bedre undervise ham i kirken. 

Uten om det, s var uken utrolig bra. Igjen masse gode leksjoner. Spessielt nr de vi underviser begynner lese jevnt i Mormons Bok. Det forandrer alt. Helt utrolig faktisk hva det gjr med en. Mest fordi nr de gjr noe aktivt for finne svar p sprsmlene som de har, s har de den Hellige nd med seg. De begynner forst ting som de har slitt med s lenge. Hvis bare alle kunne forsttt hvor viktig det er for dem lese jevnt, og faktisk be om det. For de som endelig begynner forst viktigheten, de har ganske plutselig en annen atmosfre og holdning. 

Spilte sjakk med Dagry for frste gang. Et langt spill, varte noen dager, men jeg er fortsatt ubeseiret p misjonen min ^^ Det vil si fortuenom et spill med Satea, som er oppe i toppen med sjakkspillere og VM-er osv. Jeg fikk aldri avsluttet spillet med Satea, men m nok rlig innrmme, han hadde banket meg i sluttspillet, lett. 

Haha m avslutte med en fyr som vi gr forbi ofte. Veldig engasjert type, har null interesse, men vi har noen samtaler med han. Andre gang vi s ham ropte ham, eyy! Kom her. Og sa til vennene hans, de er Jehovas Vitner! S vi forklarte ganske raskt at vi ikke er JW. Neste gang vi gikk forbi ropte han igjen. Eyy! Kom over her. Disse Kristus Vitner. hahha xD Greit nok, stemme jo det. 

Enda litt til, noe ddsmorsomt forrige transfer. Meg og Rantaniemi var i de andres leilighet for plukke opp noe. Vi to snakket med Kitsell. James gikk forbi mens han spiste p en mrk kokesjokolade. 

Kitsell: Hva er det du gjr? Vi trenger den i morgen for kaken vi m lage!

James: Men jeg er sulten.

Kitsell: Ta deg en skive eller noe, du kan ikke spise opp ingrediensene til kaken, vi trenger den! Dessuten du liker jo ikke ikke hverken mrk eller kokesjokolade. 

James: Jeg liker den ikke, men det gr helt greit. *Fortsetter spise p sjokoladen*

Kitsell: ...

Hahha jeg datt nesten i bakken. Hysterisk morsomt ver tilstede under den samtalen. Kitsell helt fortvilet og James 100% neglisjerende. 

Neste uke blir utrolig travel. Vi har distrikts mte i Limassol, en annen by, spesialisert trening i Limassol og distrikts konferanse i Larnika i 2 dager. Hahha, s vi fr jobbe s mye som vi kan som alltid med den tiden som vi har i Paphos. "All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us." - En smart fyr med stor hatt ;)
