Last night after visiting another member in the hospital who had a heart attack, the Elders called President Beckstrand and asked if we could come into Stockholm and sleep in the mission home because we were cleaning the Stockholm temple early this morning. He said it would be fine so we all ran home and booked it to the train station and took a train into Stockholm. We slept over in the mission home and it was so much fun! The Beckstrands are the sweetest, most down to earth people. They just made us feel right at home. We were picked up by the Tolley's this morning and have spent the whole day cleaning the temple! It was a very cool experience. The temple is so beautiful. Then we went back to the Tolleys for lunch :) WE ARE SO BLESSED and so well taken care of which I am so grateful for.
This week I have kind of had a hard time focusing in my studies. I want to learn something new but I don't really know what to study- so I have just been reading in the Book of Mormon. I have been reading in Alma for a long time- trying to get through the war chapters, but one day this week I read Alma 48 and I love what it says about Moroni. It says he prepared the minds of the people to be faithful unto the Lord, he was a strong and mighty man, he was a man of perfect understanding (knowledgeable), whose soul delighted in the liberty and freedom of his country and his bretheren from bondage and slavery. His heart swelled with thanksgiving to God, he worked hard for the welfare and safety of his people, and he was firm in the faith of Christ. And I love verse 17: "Yea, verily, verily I say unto you, if all men had been, and were, and ever would be, like unto Moroni, behold, the very powers of hell would have been shaken forever; yea, the devil would never have power over the hearts of the children of men." I thought that this was so powerful. That if we were to be like Moroni- the devil would have no power over our hearts.
