It's been rainy this week. But not cold. It looks like it should be cold, but then we walk outside and suddenly we're drowning in the humidity and we just want it to rain even harder so that we can cool off.
I'll tell you the random things first and the good stuff later. Thursday we met Captain Hook. He's a Jehovah's Witness. We had a sort of nice conversation and then he shook our hands with his hook and told us to look up jw.org. we said no thanks.
Also! We met the manager of Imagine Dragons. (They're in Arendal for a big music festival) She recognized who we were and said, "it's okay I already know about you guys because I work for a mormon based band." But she was really nice and said she would check out our website. So we're leaving it in the band's hands. They'll teach her the gospel
Saturday we finally got to do some service for some members!! We were so excited to pull some weeds! But she only let us work for about 5 minutes and then made us come inside out of the rain and fed us pancakes. She's from Korea, so they were vegetable pancakes.
Here's the miracle: On wendesday we were walking through the city to catch our bus and we stopped this girl named Josefine and started talking to her about Christ. Suddenly these kids come running around the corner towards us, a girl about 13 and a boy about 11. They get to us and start talking to this girl, they needed to get her number or something. And then she asks the kids if they know us, because we're christian too. So they start talking to us and they tell us this amazing story. They were at the store and they felt like they needed to buy a coke that had the name Solveig on it. (I don't know if it is the same in the states, but here coke is doing a promotion where they put names on coke bottles, so you can get a coke with your name on it if that makes you happy) These kids didn't know anyone named solveig but they felt like they needed to find someone who knew solveig and could give her the coke. So they go out in the city and start asking people if they know a Solveig. They finally get to Josefine and ask her, "Do you know anyone named Solveig? Because we need you to give her this coke and tell her that we're praying for her." And it turns our that Josefine's little sister is named Solveig and has cancer. So they gave her the coke to give to her sister. So cool! This little 11 year old boy was crying as he told us this story. And Josefine told us she'd been feeling like she'd lost her connection with God. But we told her, "Hey, God wants you to know He's there and He cares about you. This is how he talks to us most of the time, through other people. Through these little miracles.
I love you all! Have an awesome week!
