"You're good enough to not fail" Västra Frölunda Week 3

Quote of the week compliments of Elder Mecham. The 4 Elders here in the ward are just hilarious!

Highlights:
-Went on splits with the Sisters in Jönköping. I stayed there for a day with Syster Taylor. It was cool to see missionary work from another perspective. We had dinner with the Elders (including Elder DeMordaunt, whom I served with for 4.5 months in Jakobsberg!) and the Young Men. The made us tacos and we did "Master Chef" :)
-We were interviewed by a member for her class of 10 year olds in China :) 
-Went to Institute with an investigator. It was taught by a returned missionary on the Book of Mormon as the Keystone of Our Religion. It was a really great lesson!
-Taught some really good lessons with our investigators. One on prophets and why it is important that we have a prophet today. Taught the Plan of Salvation to a new investigator and he really felt the Spirit. 
-Made cookies for a YSA missionary night then went on splits to visit less active YSAs and invite them to Institute. It was way fun :)
-Helped an investigator translate a paper from Swedish to English about World War II. Good language study for the three of us!
-Elder Lloyd turned 19 on Saturday, so we made him lunch. It was the 6 of us here, plus the senior couple in our ward. We did Fettuccine Alfredo, Salad, and Carrot Cake. It was really fun!!
-Had dinner with a lovely family here in the ward. Talked about the Vision of the Tree of Life and how when we taste the fruits of the Gospel, we want to share the joy that we have experienced. Really great lesson!

Favorite Scripture for this Week? Isaiah 40:31
"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."

When we rely on the Lord, we can receive all that we stand in need of. He knows what we need better than we do, we just have to look to see His hands in the little details of our lives. 

Love you lots,
Syster Griffes
