Raute Mies (Iron Man)

Hey Fam! Thanks for all the birthday wishes and letters :) It was a wonderful birthday in Finland! Sisar Carter had sweet little surpises for me all day and we also had the rare rootbeer extract to make some awesome Rootbeer float cookies! Yum! And the best birthday gift was our last street contact of the day with an older Finnish woman. She was so willing to stop and listen (so rare for those finnish mummos) we practically taught her the whole restoration lesson right there on the street! She was so excited to read the Book of Mormon and come to church! She told us about an experience she just recently had that strenghted her faith dramatically in prayer and in the divine help we receive from our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. That was definitely a winner birthday surprise!
This week we found a new investigator from a street contact referral that I am very excited about. He had a major accident earlier in his life that has severely limited his mobility (He now tons of metal holding him all together after 5 different 13 hour operations....he didn't hesitate to show us all his x-rays and everything), but yet he has continued to press on because he knows his life has a purpose. He has learned about a lot of churchs, searching for what is right, and is very willing to read and pray. We are excited to see his progression. Although at first glance you may not suspect it, but he is such a respectful, sincere, and kind investigator.
Conference was awesome!!! My favorite talks were definitely Elder Snow's on humility and Elder Ballard's on family councils. What a sweet and calming spirit those divinely called leaders bring! We had a couple investigators enjoy conference with us, one of them progressing really well! In our last lesson with him he gave the most sincere prayer I have ever heard an investigator give!
Overall, things are going really well and I'm feeling very blessed and happy. I think and pray for you often and hope things are going well. Love you!
