Denne uken har vi spist oss feite p thanksgiving. S alt er vel.

Wow! Jeg snakket litt om Imed forrige uke. En undersker fra Egypt som tar inn alt som en svamp. Han er bare s forberedt, helt sykt. Forrige uke fortalte han at han vil stoppe med rykingen (som ikke er lite bare det). Denne uken underviste vi ham derfor visdomsordet. Da han hrte at vi ikke drikker te og kaffe sa han. "Hva? Ikke te eller kaffe?" Jeg var klar til forklare litt hvorfor vi har visdomsordet og snn, men han fortsatte. "Det er fantastisk. Jeg stoppet for 1 mned siden drikke te og kaffe. Jeg var blitt s avhengig, men jeg stoppet helt og jeg fler meg mye bedre n. Det var vanskelig i begynnelsen, men n er jeg fri". Han er helt enorm. P sndag kom han bort til oss med et smil og forklarte oss hvor mye han har kuttet ned p rykingen og at han fler seg lykkelig. Han har litt hodepine, men han sa han fler en glede som han ikke har flt p lenge. For en mann. 

Denne uken hadde jeg splits med eldste Fagg, som er et eventyr i seg selv. Hahha, han er en  legende. Vi var ute i et helt nytt omrde som ikke fantes p kartet vrt. S vi gikk oss vill og endte opp i et omrde med kun svre villaer. Rett fr det regnes som slott. Et av husene s ut til ha en berg- og dalbane p taket, men det var noe annet. Vi hadde noen veldig gode samtaler med dem. En av dem som vi snakket med sa etter at jeg introduserte meg, "ah, du har et norsk navn?" Jeg har ingen peiling p hvordan han fant ut det, for han s kun navnet mitt skrevet p gresk, som ikke er det letteste i verden. 

Dessverre ble eldste Fagg flyttet til Athen i dag. Han blir den nye assistenten til president Heder. Ikke vanskelig forst, en god fyr og en kanon misjonr, men skulle gjerne hatt han i Larnaca litt lengre. Det positive er at skotten Eldste Scharff kommer inn i hans posisjon, s det blir jo bra i hvert fall. 

Wow! Mens jeg satt her for skrive bloggen fikk jeg en telefon fra vr bergenske undersker. Hun ble visst invitert hjem til en norsk familie i kveld og hun spurte om det hadde greit om hun tok med seg misjonrene, for han ene (meg) trenger velse med norsken sin. Familien hadde visst kontakt med misjonrer fr, s de kjenner godt til disse mormonene. Haha s det blir gy! Har ingen peiling p hva vi kan forvente. Vi fr se! 

Alle misjonrene p Kypros kom sammen p tirsdag og vi hadde et stort thanksgiving mltid.

This week we have really eaten a lot due to thanksgiving. So all is well in Zion.

Wow! I wrote a bit about Imed last week. An investigator from Egypt that takes in everything like a sponge. He is just so prepared, amazing. Last week he announced that he would stop smoking (which is not a small thing just that). This week we therefore taught him about the word of wisdom. When he heard that we do not drink tea or coffee, he said. "What? No tea or coffee?" I was ready to explain a bit why we have the work of wisdom and stuff around this, but he continued. "It's wonderful. I just stopped do drink tea and coffee for 1 month ago. I had become so dependent, but I stopped and I felt so much better. It was hard in the beginning, but now I am free." He is absolutely increasable. On Sunday he came up to us with a smile and explained how much he has cut down on smoking and that he feels so happy. He had a little headache, but he said he feels such a joy that he has not felt in a long time. What a man.


This week I had exchange with Elder Fagg, which is just an adventure in itself. Hahha, Fagg is a legend. We were out working in a brand-new area that did not exist on our map. Then we got lost and ended up in an area with only huge villas. So big that it could be considered to be called castles. One of the houses seemed to have a roller coaster on the roof, but it was something else. We contacted them and had a very good conversation with them. One guy that we spoke with said after I introduced myself, "Ah, you have a Norwegian name?" I have no idea how he knew, since he only saw my name written in Greek, which is not the easiest thing in the world to read.

Unfortunately Elder Fagg moved to Athens today. He will be the new assistant to President Heder. Not difficult to understand at all. He is a good guy and a very good missionary, but we would have like to have him in Larnaca a little longer. The positive is that the Scotsman Elder Scharff will take his position, so that is good at least.

Wow! While I sat here writing the blog, I got a call from our investigator from Bergen. She was invited home to a Norwegian family in the evening and she asked if it was okay if she invited the missionaries, since there was a guy from Norway that needed to exercise his Norwegian's. The family have been in contact with missionaries before, so they are well aware of those Mormons. Haha so that will be fun! Have no idea what we can expect. We'll see!

All missionaries in Cyprus came together on Tuesday and we had a great thanksgiving meal.
Here is a picture.
