Koti tehtu mehua ja keks (Home made juice and cookies)

Moi :) This week was another good week. And it was made even better when I got to read emails and letters in the mail full of loving and supportive words. Thank you! It is so fun to hear and see how everyone is doing in emails and pics. You guys rock!
So probably the biggest blessing from this week would be our investigator with a bapstimal date. He is progressing so well, and in our last lesson with him he simply and powerful bore his testimony of many things throughout the lesson. He talks of how he is excited to get the priesthood and how much he has seen Heavenly Father helping in his life. He says that he wants to follow all the commandments because he knows they will bring him closer to God and that there is a reason we have them. It is so simple and true. It also has brought me so much joy to see the members reach out so lovingly, although there is a language barrier. Wow, lessons with him will definitely be a highlight of the mission.
Another highlight of the week was meeting with a very sweet woman Sisar Herrmann and I found tracting last change. We had tried to stop by a couple times before but it never worked out, but this week we stopped by and she immediately brought us in and was so loving and kind. She gave us delicious home made juice and cookies and sincerely listened to what we had to say about the Book of Mormon and our church. She was excited to read and pray about the Book of Mormon and was grateful for our message. Her and her little son also showed us these cute books about bible stories that they love to read together. Such a sweet and faithful family. It was really cool to see profit out of tracting that I personally did.
Something I learned during personal study this week: When reading Helaman 4:20-26 I found it so interesting how many times it says that the Nephites could see the differences between them and the Lamanites. "they saw" and recognized how far away from the Lord they had become. In Alma 32:35 it talks about the spirit and truth being discernable. Sometimes it is difficult to see the hand of the Lord, but I hope to keep my eyes open for it always, because it is there and we will see it.
I hope school and work and other parts of hectic life are going well for all of you. Thank you for your prayers :) I love you!
