Kaste ja Revontulet! (Baptism and the Northern Lights!)

Hey Fam! This week was definitely one for the books! First off, our baptism and confirmation went so well! The ward was so supportive and helpful and have just taken our recent convert under their wings. The biggest blessing for me this whole week was seeing how happy he is now! He truly has a light in his eyes and the spirit with him. It brings so much joy to hear him share his thoughts and testimony about how he has received his testimony of Joseph Smith. Wow! He will always be someone very dear to my heart and to my mission. 
Secondly, after a spirit filled and wonderful world wide missionary broadcast (which we ended up watching in Kouvola...long story and long night haha but at least we got to watch it) we saw the NORTHERN LIGHTS! There were pretty dim and we were sprinting to catch a train, but I have officially seen them and they are cool! Our world is pretty incredible. 
Another interesting fact that you might be interested in is that we only have 98 missionaries in Finland right now. Small, but happy and hard working mission :). So grateful to be here.
This week I have been studying a lot about knowledge and have especially just loved reading all of the promises in the scriptures about knowledge. One of my favorites is in D&C 42:61 "If thou shalt ask, thou shalt receive revelation upon revelation, knowledge upon knowledge, that thou mayest know the mysteries and peaceable things—that which bringeth joy, that which bringeth life eternal." 
Sorry, don't have tons of time this week to write, but I love you and hope that things are going well at home :)!
