Well this has been busy week. On Tuesday we visited Orimattila where we taught a recent-convert, followed-up on potential investigators, and served a less-active member. Later that same day we taught the man with the 5 year old daughter, with our ward missionary leader. He loves church as well as his daughter. Unfortunately, his daughter was a little sick this past Sunday so they couldn't come but they want to come to Tampere for stake conference. Then the next day was splits with the zone leaders. Elders Struthers and Young are such good leaders. I will be sending pictures soon so you can see who they are. While they were in Lahti we taught a new investigator who was a referral from our mission president( yes Pres Brown. the example)
Then while contacting Elder Lytle and I found one lady who said she is currently searching for the truth. We discussed for about 15 min on the road and gave her a Book of Mormon with the restoration pamphlet. She was definitely prepared by the Lord (Alma 16:16)
On Friday, President held a Mission Leadership Training meeting where all the zone and district leaders in Finland gathered in Helsinki where we held a council, received further training from President.
Also all flights in and out of Finland have been canceled due to the volcano in Iceland. Therefore that also means no posti (mail) in or out. So if you do not hear from me for a few days it is because of air travel. I believe there are still boats that transport mail so katsotaan (lets see).
This week I have zone conference, splits with the missionaries in Tampere and Jyväskylä. We have one investigator, (Norwegian), who is asking for his answer from Heavenly Father. He is overcoming his coffee problem by switching to hot chocolate. He has his baptismal date set for April 1st so please keep him in your prayers.
I love you

And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall.
