It has been a really great week. We went to the temple to do baptisms for the first time with one of our friends. She loved it. She actually lives about a 10 minute walk from the temple so that is awesome. When we were waiting at the temple we walked into a full room with no seats available and the temple worker looked at us (3 women) and gestured to the full chairs where a couple young men were sitting suggesting that he thinks there are a few open seats. The boys got up and gave us their seats. Our friend remembered that when we talked with her later and she mentioned how the men take good care of us. I love the priesthood. I love the gospel! Then one of our friends was back in Espoo for the weekend and was able to go to the temple for his second time!! The gospel is so amazing.
We tried authentic Indian food! It was so good! And sooooo spicy! There was one dish that had peppers in it and they warned us not to dare try them (they eat them no problem) so when Sister Nielsen wasn't looking I squeezed the seeds out of the pepper and put them in her chicken. I think she really enjoyed it :) she couldn't seem to drink enough water. But I decided I should try it as well. Wow. I don't know how they do it without almost crying. It was a fun night.
Our friends from Taiwan are fantastic! It is so much fun to be with them. The other night we had a party at the church where a couple missionaries sang a song with the ukulele about characters in the Book of Mormon, Joseph Smith, and Jesus Christ. It was fun to see them light up when they heard names they recognized and just barely learned.
I hope you have a great week. Thanks for you love and support. I love you all. Take care :)
