Another great week. Sorry this will be short we decided to go on a really long hike so my time is very short. I will answer your questions and then send a group email. Splits went awesome and I'll talk about it in my group email. I feel like I’ve gotten the routine down. A lot of people can speak English but they do everything in Norwegian so it's just when I don't understand they speak English. But I would say anyone under the age of 55 can speak decent English but all the kids can’t yet. I get to go to the mission home next week and I am so excited to see everyone. We will just take a really long train to get there. I have not gotten your package yet but I think it will come.

Another amazing week! It all started off with heading up to Tønsberg to go on splits for 2 days. They always talk about how awesome things happen on splits and let me tell you it is true. Not much happened the first day but the second day I was with Eldste Johnson and within the first 5 people we talked to, we had already given out a Book of Mormon and a ton of pamphlets and people would actually talk to us for a solid 10-15 minutes. It even gets better. The first door we knock on this lady answers the door. We talk with her for a second and she says that she doesn't believe in anything. We explained the promise that is in the back of the Book of Mormon and she was willing and said that she would read and pray and that we could come back. We walked away so shocked and happy. Too bad it wasn't in my area.
Next the Drammen Eldsters came down to Porsgrunn and went on splits with us. Within the first 3 people we talked to we already handed out 2 Books of Mormon and a pamphlet. Through this process we have 6 potential investigators and we are just hoping one becomes an investigator. This makes this week a big and crazy one.
We also got to help out with a lot of service this week and we got to do a lot with all of the members.
One story from splits we were talking with this guy about the Book of Mormon and all he wanted to talk about is how revelation doesn't happen anymore and that there is no need to do anything. He was very polite and we asked if we could share a scripture with him and we shared Moroni's promise and the spirit was so strong and you could see that he was feeling it. After we read it he said "it's true" and then instantly went back into all of this stuff. We were disappointed but at least we tried.
We got to go on an amazing hike today called Gygrestolen, I'll send pictures!
