12/9-16

Surprise, lots of new stuff! Stay tuned!!.

This week we had as mentioned last week, a lot that happened.

Emergency transfer! My companion Dagry had to move to Limassol due to complications another places in the mission. He traveled this morning. Elder Kitsell who only have 5 weeks left on his mission, is now here in Kato Paphos and is my new companion. I was also called as the new district leader. Hahha That sure came as a surprise, because last transfer was last week and normal changes should have happened then. Really sad that me and Dagry had split up, we had such a good relationship and a good internal humor. But that it how it is. Should be good to work with Elder Kitsell as well, even though if it is only for five weeks.

Being a Missionary can be hard work

We had specialized training on Friday which was really good. It was right after the training that President Heder were to interview us both at once, when he gave us the news of emergency transfer. I do not think that Elder Dagry was that happy with the news, but he was still very willing and positive to it. We had so much that really works, lots of people that we have found that have good progress toward baptism.

On Saturday and Sunday we were in Larnaca for the district conference. Incredibly good conference. President Brown was there, President Heder and President Orbano of the Europe presidency. Patricia (one of our investigator) came all the way from Paphos to take part, which I think she really needed. It was really a boost for all those that were present.

We stayed in the abandoned sister apartment in Larnaca.

Here is a jacket that I found in the sister apartment.

This week we did not have that much time in our hometown, but we still had plenty of good lessons. We had two lessons with Αλέξανδρος which was really good. It's good to see how the understanding of the gospel have such a great impact on their lives. I had just studied ways to bring the Holy Spirit in during a lesson. I went over all the things I had learned, read together in the Scriptures, pray a silent prayer, bear witness etc. We did both do this, more than once. It was inconceivable to feel how the Spirit was present, and how he began to understand!

Elder Bramley had to crawl down in manhole covers because he dropped the phone on the ground and the battery fell down, haha.

On Sunday evening we met with Στέλιος. It was our last chances to teach together as a companionship, me and Dagry. Wow, what a lesson. Me and Dagry went from Στέλιος with the best feeling in the world. The feeling you get when the spirit works through you as a missionary. I have no other description than "over the moon". Dagry said he felt he was on the clouds. It makes all the effort, all the rejections, all the sweat, time, everything so worth it and more. Looking forward to this upcoming week and the next few lessons we have this week with them. Yess!

Although it was not so cool to spit up with Elder Dagry, it was perhaps the best week so far in my mission. I have felt the spirit so strongly throughout the week. What a great feeling that is.

Have a bright week everybody!

Surprise, masse nytt! hold fast. 

Denne uken hadde vi som nevnt forrige uke, mye som skjedde.

Nd-transfer! Min kompanjong Dagry mtte flytte til Limassol p grunn av komplikasjoner en annen plass i misjonen. Han reiste i dag morges. Eldste Kitsell som kun har 5 uker igjen, er n her i Kato Paphos sammen med meg. Jeg ble ogs kalt til bli distrikts leder. Hahha, skal si at det kom overraskende, fordi forrige transfer skjedde forrige uke og normale forandringer ville skjedd da. Trist at meg og Dagry mtte splittes, vi hadde et godt forholdt og en god intern humor. Men snn kan det g. Skal bli bra med Kitsell ogs, enn om kun for 5 uker. 

Den Siste helntten blir fortrt.

Vi hadde spesialisert trening p fredag som var givende. Det var rett etter treningen hvor president Heder skulle intervjue oss, begge p en gang, der han ga oss nyhetene om nd transferet. Jeg tror ikke eldste Dagry var veldig fornyd med nyhetene, men han var fortsatt veldig villig. Vi hadde s mye som funket, masse folk vi har funnet med god fremgang mot dp. 

P lrdag og sndag var vi i Larnaka for distriktskonferansen. Utrolig bra. President Brown var der, President Heder og President Orbano fra Europa presidentskapet. Patricia?undersker?kom hele veien fra Paphos til delta, som jeg tror hun virkelig trengte. Det var virkelig en boost for alle som var tilstede. 

Vi overnattet i den forlatte sster leiligheten i Larnaka.

Denne uken var vi ikke s mye i hjembyen vr, men vi hadde fremdeles masse gode undervisninger. Vi hadde to undervisninger med Αλέξανδρος som var bra. Det er godt se hvordan forstelsen av evangeliget har en stor pvirkning p deres liv. Jeg hadde nettopp studert mter bringe den Hellige nden p under en leksjon. Jeg gikk over alle punktene, lese sammen i skriftene, be en stille bnn, bre vitnesbyrd osv. Vi gjorde begge to dette, mer enn en gang. Det var ufattelig hvodan nden var tilstede, og hvordan han begynte forst! 

Bramley mtte ned i komlokket fordi han mistet telefonen i bakken og batteriet datt nedi, haha.

P sndags kveld mtte vi med Στέλιος. Det var vr siste sjangse undervise sammen, meg og Dagry. Wow, for en leksjon. Meg og Dagry gikk fra Στέλιος med den beste flelsen i verden. Den flelsen du fr nr nden virker gjennom deg som en misjonr. Jeg har ingen annen beskrivelse enn "over the moon". Dagry sa at han flte han gikk p skyer. Det gjr alt strevet, alle avvisningene, all svetten, tiden, alt verdt det, og mer. Gleder meg til denne uken og de neste leksjonene vi har denne uken sammen med dem. Yess!

Selv om det var kjipt bli spittet med Dagry, s var det kanskje den beste uken hittil p misjonen. Har flt nden s sterkt gjennom hele uken. Hvilken god flelse det er. 

Ha ein knall uga adle samen!
