ήνταν που κάμνουμε δαμέ! (Cypriot, haha ​do not ​think google translate will decode that)

Okay, so now we have put up the Christmas tree and we have Christmas decorations everywhere in our flat. I did received a package from home this week, with some Christmas music, a new camera since I managed to lose the one I had, so now there will be more pictures going forward. In the package mom and dad also attached a small piece of Norway! (freia Milk Chocolate)  It was really good to eat a small piece of Norway.



We teach some people that do not have any Christian background. It is a very different experience, since we normally teach mostly people with the Greek Orthodox Church background. I asked one of them during one of the lessons we had this week. Do you know what a prophet is? He thought for a while and then he replied, "Yes, When You invest money in something and you get more back, that is a profit." hahha, I had to gather all my strength not to burst out with laughter. They really do absolutely have no Christian background, so everything we say is the first time they hear it. But they are like sponges, taking in all they can. It's pretty amazing.

Last week Παναγιώτης and Γεωργία invited us to bowl in the end of our P day, so it was of course not something that we could not miss. We really had a good time with them. They are really taking care of us missionaries.


We had special training with President Heder, his assistants and the zone leaders this week. All missionaries on the Cyprus island came together. It's always fun to meet the others from all over Cyprus. We had incredible meetings. It's impossible not to feel the spirit when President and Sister Heder talks. It is always top quality.

(the good thing about serving with a guy from Italy is that he knows his pizza baking :)

Finally we had a lesson with a Maria this week. We have tried long to get hold of her. Elder and Sister Cranney was also present in the discussion that really made that lesson very good. She have two children; Princess 9 years and Candle 6 year. Princess understood everything we talked about. She is so incredibly sharp. I hope we can continue to teach them going forward. It was actually Sister Rapp from Norway who started to teach her, but she has not have any contact with the missionaries for over a year now. So we hope that now is the time for progress.

This is a little short blog this time, but more will come next week.

Have a good week to you all.

ήνταν που κάμνουμε δαμέ! (kypriotisk, haha tror iche google translate komme te ta den)


(Julenissen har jo og kappe... Er han en superhelt?)

Javel, s n er juletreet oppe og julepynt overalt. Jeg fikk en pakke hjemmefra, med litt julemusikk, et nytt kamera siden jeg klarte miste det ene jeg hadde, s n blir det litt mer bilder. I pakken var det et lite stykke Norge! Det var godt med et lite stykke Norge. Men det tok jo ikkje s lang tid fr det va et lite stykke av nge aent :).

Vi underviser en del folk som ikke har en kristen bakgrunn. Det er en veldig annerledes erfaring, ettersom vi underviser stort sett kun folk fra den gresk ortodokse kirken. Jeg spurte en av dem under en av leksjonene vi hadde denne uken. Do you know what a prophet is? Han tenkte litt og svarte: "Yes, when you invest money in something and you get more back, that is a profit." hahha, jeg mtte samle sammen alle kreftene mine for ikke sprekke av latter. De har jo absolutt ingen kristen bakgrunn, slik at alt vi sier er den frste gang de hrer om det. Men de er som svamper, tar til seg alt de kan. Det er ganske utrolig.


(utrolig hvor fort hret vokser nr jeg ikke trimmer det hver uke...)
 

Forrige uke inviterte Παναγιώτης og Γεωργία oss til bowle, s det ble selvflgelig ikke takket nei til. Vi koste oss sammen med dem. De er flinke til ta seg av oss misjonrer.

Vi hadde spesiell opplring fra president Heder, assistentene og sonelederene denne uken. Alle misjonrene p ya kom sammen, det er alltid gy treffe de andre fra hele Kypros. Utrolig bra mter. Det er jo umulig ikke fle ndens tilstedevrelse nr president og sster Heder snakker. Alltid kvalitet. 

Endelig hadde vi en leksjon med ei Maria som vi har prvd lenge f til lenge. Eldste og sster Cranney var ogs tilstede som gjorde at leksjonen ble utrolig bra. Hun har to barn; Princess p 9 og Candle p 6r. Princess forsto alt vi snakket om. Hun er s utrolig skarp. Jeg hper vi kan fortsette undervise dem fremover. Det var faktisk sster Rapp fra Norge som startet undervise henne, men hun har ikke hatt misjonrene over p over et r n. S vi hper at n er tiden inne for fremgang.

Ble en litt kort blogg denne gang, men skal komme med mer utfyldene neste uke.

S fr jeg si som kinamaen i krossen p hundvg sier: Ja-hademm!
