We had a cool experience on Friday. There is this big African family that lives in Kongsberg. Since I have been here we have met all of the different siblings in the family (they live in different areas around the city). Small town problems. All have been positive, but it has been difficult to get appointments with them. This past friday we met the youngest son named Laurence. A sweet 18 year-old. We got to teach him! He is way prepared and said he is searching for which of all these different faiths is right. Excited to teach him and try to involve the youth of the ward as well.
I have been thinking a lot lately about the pattern in which God work's with us: line upon line, precept upon precept. I've been trying to apply this concept a lot more to missionary work of late. For the church to really grow here in Norway it is going to take a bunch of little miracles, not a few big ones. A bunch of small steps. Often we put way to much focus on the end result when we really have no idea how we are going to get there. There is all this talk about us hastening the work, when really it is the Lord hastening His work. In the end, if we just focus on the little things each day, this work will go forth in God's way and God's time.
Some other cool news: Rogers, a guy we found and taught a lot in Tromsø was just baptized this past Saturday!!
