Week 5 Fredrikstad

This week has been a pretty busy one. On one of the days we went to
help a lady in the ward move a bunch of rocks from one side of the
yard to the other. It was a good work out and since we don't get
opportunities to do that too often it was nice. It reminded me a lot
of working in the yard back home :) Not too many things beat some good
ol manual labor. She made us a fantastic dinner afterward with this
elk meat that was from a friend who shot the animal on their land so
it was just about as natural as they come haha it was delicious.

Sunday was a really good day as well. We got a lot done and it felt
good. After church we taught one of the really cool recent converts
about the Priesthood. As we were talking with him the Bishop was
locking up the church and asked if we'd help him bring the sacrament
to two sisters from the ward. The recent convert we were teaching
became a Priest not too long ago and hadn't blessed the sacrament yet.
It was a really sweet experience when he read through it for the first
time. We finished our second visit when the Bishop says, "Hey, I think
another member lives close by here, let's drop by." That happened a
couple of times, it was great :) The last guy we visited offered us
some juice and since my comp and I were still fasting we declined. Of
course the Bishop was fasting as well. It was nearly 7pm by this time
and we decided it was probably time to call it a day. Time really flew
when we were out visiting everyone. It was awesome cuz I didn't really
think of how I was hungry. I think we were all blessed with the Spirit
in doing the Lord's work :)

We went crab hunting again today and got back kinda late..
Unfortunately we didn't catch any this time cuz it was way too stormy.
