Halloen!​

Det har vrt en spennende uke. Vi fly inn til Athen p tirsdag, men da vi landet fant vi ingen som ventet p oss der hvor de hentet oss tidligere. Vi var strandet i verden uten en telefon som virker, uten mat, kun vann fra toalettene. Ndtelefonene ville ikke akseptere kortene vre og vi hadde et mte om under en time. Heldigvis fant vi en computer som fortsatt hadde 10 minutter internett fra den forrige personen som betalte. Vi fant ut at de som plukket oss opp ventet p oss utenfor, vi hadde bare ikke sett dem, s det var vel vr feil. :p​ jaja, vi rakk mtet.

Mtet vi hadde var bra, vi lrte mye fra President og Sster Heder, og assistentene. Vi hadde ogs en exchange med assistentene, hvor jeg var sammen med Eldste Fagg for en dag. Jeg kunne ha skrevet en bok om bare det, hahha. 

Vi beskte Ralph, en ex-motorsyklist fra Amerika. Den eneste mten jeg kan beskrive ham som en person er ved eksempel. Han sa "Yeah, throughout my racing career I've broken almost every bone in my body; my arms, most of my ribs, my legs, both shoulders, everything. But most times I'd just use duct tape. Do you know what duct tape is? It's my best friend. I'd duct tape my arm whenever I'd break it, cuz' mah doctor would never let me continue the championship if he'd know." Hahha! N m legene her bryte opp mange av bryddene som ble leget feil. Men han syntes det var verdt det, han vant USA's national championship 6 ganger. 

Vi snakket med ham om skriftene som han har et stort vitnesbyrd om, noe han har verdsatt gjennom hele livet hans. 

Vi kom hjem til Kypros p torsdagen og hadde utrolig liten tid til forberede trengingen for alle andre misjonrene p Kypros, som var p fredag. Tuller ikke engang, vi planla alt fredags morgen fr vi reiste til Limassol. 

Ikke bare har vi reist, jeg har sett masse mirakler denne uken. 

Kanskje den strste var med Robin. Et mindre aktivt medlem vi har prvd lenge n ut til. Han sendte oss en melding denne uken om at konen hans den nattet fdte en gutt. Vi fikk komme p besk den samme kvelden p sykehuset og se den n dag gamle babyen. Fantastisk. Vi hadde ogs masse babyklr fra et av de andre medlemmene som vi skulle gi til noen andre, men vi mistet kontakten med dem. N fikk vi muligheten til hjelpe Robin med baby klrne. 

Vi har ogs arbeidet en del med de andre medlemmene her i Larnaca?som er et stor fokus n av det vi gjr som misjonrer?og det er virkelig givende, og det styrker medlemmene ogs. 

Plantene vokser, men en merkelig ting har skjedd. I potten som jeg plantet persille, har en annen ting begynt vokse opp, som skiller seg ut fra alle de andre. Eldste Scharff tror det er en lk, s det blir spennende se hva som snek seg med. 

ja, vi mtte ogs p en fyr som ropte p oss, Hey Elders! fra den andre siden av gaten. Han tok oss med p en sushi-buffet. De var vist p besk her fra USA. 

​Siste ting. Vi satt og studerte gresk ute da en katt kom bort til oss. Den hoppet opp i fanget og ble der. Det stoppet ikke meg lese i Mormons Bok. ​

Ha ein knagande kanon uga! :D

Heya


It has been an exciting week. We flew to Athens Tuesday, but when we landed we did not find anyone waiting for us where they have picked us up earlier. We were stranded without a working phone, no food, only water from the toilets. Emergency phone would not accept our cards and we had a meeting in about under an hour. Luckily we found a computer that still had 10 minutes internet from the previous person that was paid. We found that those who picked us up was waiting for us outside, we just had not seen them, so it was properly our fault. : P oh well, we did come to the meeting in time.


The meeting we had was good, we learned a lot from President and Sister Heder and the assistants. We also had an exchange with the assistants, where I was together with Elder Fagg for a day. I could have written a book about just that, hahha.

We visited Ralph, an ex-motorcyclist from America. The only way I can describe him as a person is by one example. He said "Yeah, throughout my racing career I've broken almost every bone in my body; my arms, most of my ribs, my legs, both shoulders, everything. But most times I'd just use duct tape. Do you know what duct tape is? it's my best friend. I'd duct tape my arm whenever I'd break it, cuz 'mah doctor would never let me continue the championship if he'd know. " Hahha! Now the doctors here need to break up many of the bones that was healed wrong. But he thought it was worth it, he won the US national championship six times.
We talked to him about the scriptures that he has a great testimony about, something he has appreciated throughout his life.

We came home to Cyprus on Thursday and had incredibly little time to prepare for the lessons of all the missionaries here in Cyprus, which was on Friday. No kidding, we planned everything Friday morning before we traveled to Limassol.

Not only have we traveled, I've seen lots of miracles this week.
Perhaps the biggest was with Robin. A less-active member we've tried to reach for a long time. He sent us a message this week that his wife gave birth to a boy. We could visit them the same evening in the hospital and got to see a one day old baby. Fantastic. We also had lots of baby clothes from one of the other members that we were supposed to give to someone else, but we lost contact with them. Now we got the opportunity to help Robin with baby clothes instead.

We have also worked with the other members here in Larnaca who is a big focus now. We do as missionaries focus on member work, and it's really rewarding and it also helps members as well.


Out plants is growing, but a strange thing has happened. In the pot which I planted parsley, another thing started to grow up, that stands out from all the others. Elder Scharff think it's an onion, so it will be interesting to see what it will end up as.

Oh, we also met a guy who shouted at us, Hey Elders! from the other side of the street. He took us on a sushi buffet. They were visiting here from the United States and wanted to treat us.

Last thing. We sat and studied Greek outside when a cat came up to us. It jumped up in my lap and stayed there. That did not stop me reading the Book of Mormon.

Have a great week : D
