SWEDEN WEEK 37: Elder Loertscher and More Traveling

Hej Hej! 

Christmas is nearly upon, just one more week. The candles are shimmering and things are looking very Christmas-y over here. I have to keep this one rather short this week, because in about 30 minutes we are flying down to Stockholm for the Annual Christmas Zone Conference tomorrow. P-Day in Stockholm! With the Boy! Speaking of which, I have given birth and have a bright son named Elder Loertscher. A native from South Carolina, but has lived the last five years in Pleasant Grove, UT, which is where he left from. He actually happens to be one of the twelve visa-waiters who were spread over the States this last transfer; he spent his time there over in the Washington, Vancouver Mission (Shout out to Vancouver!), doing some good work in the city of Portland for the most part. We are getting along well and just trying to keep our heads on straight with all these crazy events as we prepare for Christmas.

Last Monday was fun, Elder Murri and had his last visit with Magnus, and we had a family home evening over at the Church with the YSA's in the branch. The rest of the P-Day was packing on Elder Murri's end, and general shopping and things for the week.

Tuesday was Elder Murri's last day in Umeå. We got all his things packed, had one last Pizza from Atlanta for lunch, dinner with the Karlsson's (reindeer meat is super delicious), and had a crazy evening as myself, Elder Murri, and Elder Dahle flew down to Stockholm. 

Wednesday was of course the big day. So many missionaries at the Väster Haninge Chapel, new and departing ones alike. The meeting was super fun, got to see lots of old faces, and everyone was safe and got where they needed to be. My greenie and I made it safely back to Umeå, and since then we have had fun attending the branch Christmas Party this Saturday, as well as meeting some new people and showing folks the Church's Christmas video. 

I would like to say more but time is short. I wish you all a good week, and hope that you all have a very Merry Christmas. I know our Savior is the true meaning of Christmas, and the one gift that we can never be too grateful for. 

Mycket Kärlek
