Huhtikuun sadekuurot tuovat Toukokuun kukkia (April showers bring May flowers)

Hey everyone :) this week was the perfect example of how April showers bring May flowers. It rained for a few days straight, and then the past two days have been absolutely gorgeous....so gorgous that......(wait for it).....we didn't even wear coats today!!! WAAAHH!! This week the Finnish people celebrated Vappu by wearing their graduation caps (these white sailor looking hats), the current students wearing their ”party pants” (see picture) and everyone drinking a lot. Siksi (that's why) we could not have a better time to proudly say that our investigators preparing for their upcoming baptism are doing great with living according to the Word of Wisdom!! Really though, specifically one of them has such a solid testimony of prayer and the Holy Ghost and he even fasted this last Sunday! He was a jolly fellow to begin with, but now you can really actually see a light in his eyes and the real lasting joy he has.

One blessing of the spring, is lots more service opportunities! We loved switching up the work a little and finding some great ways to serve. Oh and another blessings is that our member who brought us fresh fish before is back fishing at his mökki (summer cabin) so we get surprised with fresh fish once in a while!
The blessing are overflowing here in Lappeenranta (like always) and I'm so grateful to be working with the investigators we have. It is a joy to do the work of the Lord when he is by our side :)

I love you and hope you have a good week! (I'm excited to maybe see to some of you on Mother's day!)
