Man so much happens in a week it’s crazy to try to capture it all – or even remember it all sometimes. And wow it’s been a good one.
This week I got to meet more of the people being taught here! Some of them were gone the week I arrived or just weren’t able to meet so it was nice to get to know more of the people we are working with. And wow they are amazing. They care so much about religion and about finding truth and they want to listen to things we have to share – it’s so awesome.
One thing I’ve seen this week is how the conversion process really is between an individual and Heavenly Father. We can only answer so many questions that people have for us, and we can give them all the information we know and that doesn’t help them or change anything in there lives. Sometimes it’s about asking people questions, listening, and then inviting them to try things out and then ask God because ultimately he’s the one with all the answers. My job as a missionary is really just to help people see that Heavenly Father loves them and has answers to their questions and wants to guide them back to him. And I knew of that idea before, but now I really know that it’s true.
We’ve had a bit of a crazy pday so I’ll have to let you know more next week, sorry this email is so lame! But basically we are doing great here in Turku and being a missionary is wonderful!

I hope you all have a great week!!!
