This week we had another transfer here in Stockholm. I received Elder Mott as a new companion. He is coming straight from the MTC in Utah. So I will likely finish my mission with him as my companion. I am very happy with that as well. He is a very good missionary and is very eager to do the work. There isn't much more you can ask for in a companion. Also we had Elder Hitch move into Stockholm. He was my MTC companion, and he goes home in just five weeks which is pretty crazy. So we started our missions together and now well end it together. I wish my other MTC comp was nearby but that would just be too good.
Last week Elder NIeminen also went home. It was super weird. It a;most felt like it was my time to go home but it wasn't...yet. We were only together for three weeks but they were a very good and very effective three weeks.
Right now is vacation time in Sweden which means Stockholm is filled with tourists. And all the rest of the Swedes leave on vacations. The Stockholm ward has not had many people there on a weekly basis thanks to that. Many of the people we had been teaching also have left on vacations but they should be back soon and then everything will pick up again. This last week, we met with someone who had referred themselves and it ended up being a prank, that happens every once in a while but he said it was a prank but was still interested in learning what we had to say. We were able to talk with him and he was actually super cool. We taught the restoration and when we shared the story of the first vision we could feel the spirit super strong testifying of the truth there.
We also heard from Fransesca who is in Spain now and will be going to the Temple there soon, she is super excited to be a member down there. She's doing good.
I am really loving Stockholm. It's just as good as I had always imagined. It's beautiful during the summer all though it's still super hot. We sweat everywhere we go. But it's still better than the winter.
