Heia igjen!

Well thanks so much for all of the pictures!  It was so great to get to see everyones faces!  Luckily for me I get to speak to everyone soon!

The past week has been pretty good.  Definitely not nearly as hectic as the previous week.  Still pretty good though.  It definitely feels like Christmas here that is for sure. Things are really begining to slow down because of the holiday season.

I don't feel like I have a whole lot to tell you, we didn't really get to meet with anyone because they are all so busy with Christmas stuff.  So it was a week of focusing on the members and getting stuff done with them.  We delivered a lot of flowers and tried to visit as many people as possible.  So that was pretty much the story of the whole week. 

On church on sunday we had a ton of people there!  It was probably double the amount of people that are normally there.  So that was weird.  We had a lot of families that were visiting their parents for christmas or just families that came because it was the Christmas Sunday.  So that was typical Norwegian Chirstmas sunday, a lot of people in Church. 

Other than that we have been eating a ton of food here.  It feels like the holiday season brings a ton of food, which has been a change.  We haven't had to cook really at all in the last week.  Just a lot fo meals with members and other things.  So that has been good I guess. 

On Saturday we had a baptism in the district.  The sisters baptized one of their investigators.  So that was a great baptism, it went really well.  I got to be a part of the circle in giving the gift of the holy ghost.  Elder B (a senior missionary) was able to baptize her and to give her the gift of the holy ghost.  So that was a huge thing for him! 

I really feel like I don't have a lot to talk about though from the previous week.  It really does slow down here in the Christmas time.  Norway will shut down for the next couple of days.  We are just going to try and visit members for the next week.  Especially tomorrow and on Christmas.  We will pretty much be at members houses all day.  So I will be sure to tell you all about that on Skype.

Other than that I hope that you have a great Christmas and I look forward to talking to you soon!

Jeg elsker deg!
