Well this week I learned a lot of life lessons this week. I would say it was a great week.

Sister Sandelin's Birthday!
|You can't get this in America.|
We had a really good P day too! It was Sister Sandelin birthday so she wanted to go out to the island! So we went there and had a great time. It was really sunny and super awesome! We took like a billion pictures and it was really great. There are like a ton of crazy old castle so we took the boat out there and then like discovered this castle which was really cool! It was an awesome day.

On Saturday we had a big service project, it was the whole ward coming together to clean the church for the summertime! It was pretty fun actually, we have this new member we are working with and he is awesome. We called him on Friday Night to invite him to the BBQ and he told us that with his bus card he could only afford to take the bus two more times this week and he thought that it would be more important to come and clean the lords house on Saturday then it would be to party of Friday. It was so cute. Haha he is the coolest. African people can teach you a lot! I swear, they like just have the basics about life down and they really understand and see what is really important and what we need not worry about! It is awesome. So Saturday morning at 9:00 o'clock he was there and just got to work! He probably ended up working the hardest. It was pretty cool to see.
Sunday was good too, everyday is good so like it is dumb to say. But church was really nice! There is a lady in our ward how is going through chemotherapy again, for cancer she is facing for the second time. So we had a fast for her over the weekend. It was so awesome
to be able to do that! The morning of my fast, I really wanted to have it be more than just a fast for me. So I read that talk from Elder Erying from General Conference about Fasting and Fast Offerings. It really served it purpose in bringing a lot of attention to it. I really prayed for strength to get through the fast with honest intentions (seeing that every time I fast I seem to justify eating some thing at sometime) and the Lord really blessed me I felt. I was able to hold out and after breaking that fast I felt so good and stuff! It was another good life lesson! We got invited over to the best peoples house for dinner on Sunday night, it was so much fun. They are just the coolest and they have the best kids ever. We had a great time and it was a great way to seal the week off! Jönköping is treating both Elder Pearson and me quite well. There isn't too much to complain about.

All in all this week gets an A+. I was very pleased and I am eager to see what the future holds for us in the next week! We have a goal to have the faith like "Greenies" this week! Meaning we want to believe that miracles can happen EVERY day! I am pretty pumped. Should be a great week! Hope you all have a great week!
Thank you for everything you do for me! I love you!
