Mämmi (see picture)

Hey! :) 

So this week had some challenges, but also many blessings (what's new, right?). Easter was a wonderful day! I really loved reading in Mosiah 16:8-9 when Abinidai testifies about the endless life and light that Jesus Christ brings. The Lutheran Church in Lappeenranta put together a huge outdoor production around the church and harbor to remember Christ during this Easter time. It was really cool to see the whole town get really excited about it. We even got to see a sliver of it as we walked past it to our home from a lesson. Seeing the energy of that production, studying more about this joyful easter time, and pondering about Christ's life has allowed me to see even more of that light that Abinidai talks about. I'm so grateful for that.

The weather has been absolutely gorgeous lately! The lake is starting to melt a little bit. The sun is up for the majority of the day (wow cool!).

Unfortunately our investigator who wanted to be baptized decided the day before that he couldn't do it due to a bad atmosphere at home. That was very hard to see. Also some other investigators are having difficulty moving forward in their progression. But on the upside, this week we were blessed to find a lot of new potentials from just a few days of finding. 

I'm feeling so happy and blessed to be a missionary right now. Missionary work feels great! We are also looking forward to conference! Woo hoo! Enjoy a waffle for me! Love you all!
