Hey there!  

Well we have quite a week in front of us! We have Elder Dyches arriving on Wednesday and will be here through Friday.  So we get to spend a lot of time with him over the next couple of days. It should be really exciting!  

Anyways, I am super pumped about that but we had some good stuff happen this last week as well.  It seemed to go by super fast.  We had another day at MLC.  That was my 12th one that I have been to on my mission... so I feel like I have been there for quite a while now.  It was super good though.  We decided that we would do another round of workshops like we did in July.  So Elder H and I will be on the road the last two weeks in September.  We are going to Trondheim and Stavanger and then we will do two other meetings here in the east.  So that should be pretty fun.  

Other than that we went to Stavanger after MLC.  So I got to work with Elder E and Elder G again. It was super fun. We just got to work and do the normal stuff, but I absolutely enjoyed it.  We were there all day Thursday and then flew out on Friday morning.  On the way home we some serious trouble though.  We flew into an Airport called Torp. That is about 1.5 hours away from Sandvika.  So we would take a train from Torp to Sandvika once we landed.  Unfortunately we missed our Train when we landed and had to wait there for 2 more hours until we could catch another train. So Friday just turned into a travel day. That sucked... but we eventually got home and got back into the swing of things.

We had some teaches with Jon Axel this week.  He is doing the same as always.  He is not super sure about his date yet.  So we have asked him to pray about it. We hope that he can get an answer soon. We will see though.  We are praying with him still and are still working as hard as we can to get him to make the date.  

I never did get to talk to J, but we did get another Baptismal date! It is with this man named Nathan.  He is from Sri Lanka.  He has lived in Norway for 5 years and has a wife from Sri Lanka as well.  He was a referral from another missionary so we just went and knocked on his door.  We didn't really have anything super happen with him, but he said that if he gets an answer he would be baptized.  So are trying to work with him and his family now.

Other than that we worked really hard in our area this week are are trying to get stuff going.  It is not where we want it to be yet but we are sure hoping to get it going now.  

Pdays have been pretty busy because I am in the office.  I don't really get a pday because we are usually doing work on these days.  But in Oslo we did a lot of sightseeing and stuff. Today we are just going to work again because we have to get ready for Dyches. 

Anyways, I got to get going. 

Jeg elsker deg!
