Dear Family & Friends,
So when Norway got invaded by the Nazis during WW2, they built a bunch of bunkers all over the place. So I've seen a couple ran down, crumbled bunkers so far. This week we came across one that wasn't fallen apart yet, so that was really cool. It wasn't too big, but it was still fun nonetheless.
We got to do a bunch of service this week, which was really awesome. We got invited to help paint a barn. It was really fun. I managed to not get too much paint on myself haha. Right by the barn was a ram... and we managed to get some pretty legit pictures with it. It was super fun haha. And it was pretty epic.
Well when we got done, we were told by the guy we painted the barn for, if we wanted to help someone else the next day, so we said yes (obviously, missionaries are always looking for service to do for others). Well we find out that we get to demolish some of a garage/workshop and then rebuild some of it. Not to mention rebuilding included raising the roof another meter haha. All part of the adventure.
Being missionaries, people are always curious as to why we are in Norway, how long we've been here, and what we actually do. So the Gospel always gets brought up. We don't always need to share a lot about our beliefs, but we can always share a little something that helps others and ourselves feel the Spirit so we all can draw closer to Christ.
