Paastoamisen voima (The power of fasting)

Another week of crazy busy work and many blessings. One great part of this week was having many of our investigators fast with us on fast sunday. This week and over my whole mission my gratitude for fasting has grown immensely. What a wonderful gift and opportunity it is to receive more understanding, peace, and miracles in our life. We are teaching a little girl right now (such a fun and different experience to teach a child!) who is preparing for baptism on the 18th. It has been an etuoikeus (privilege) to see the joy, humility, and light in her simple desire to follow Jesus Christ and be baptized. It makes me think of my two awesome nieces preparing for baptism right now too :) speaking of which----Hyvää Syntymäpäivää Katelyn!! 

We also had a really exciting first lesson with a young finnish woman that has sincere real intent and perseverance. In the beginning of the lesson as we got to know her religious background she shared with us this wonderful description of how she feels the Holy Ghost and how it has helped her in very difficult situations in her life. I love how she said it didn't solve the problem, but she knew that Heavenly Father had heard her prayer and she felt at peace. She felt enabled to do what was needed. The spirit was very strong in that lesson.  

I hope you have a great week! I love you!
