Zone training!

Hyvä Pääsiänen kaikille! I hope every one had a great Easter this year. We had an eventful week with our Zone training last Wednesday. It's always kind of nerve racking when it's our turn to teach the language moment but we made it super interactive and made a game out of it. We had a great discussion on the doctrine of Jesus Christ and how we can help our investigators study the scriptures. 

Then, Sister Carter and I were off to Jyväskylä for exchanges with Sister Holbrook and Sister West! It was such a fun day and I am so glad to be in the same district as them because we get to see them every week! 
On Easter Sister Carter and I enjoyed going to church and then later at home we had Mämmi which is a Finnish dessert (Americans would not consider it a dessert) that is made from rye. You HAVE to buy cream and sugar to eat with it or else it tastes pretty bad. But overall mämmi is good! We also visited a member that night and she gave us hand knitted socks that she made for us for Easter. It was so sweet. A lot of Finnish people are into knitting. Everyone knows how to knit here! 

We have had a great week of teaching people as well and honestly this week has just flown by. We are headed to Turku tomorrow night for exchanges there and I'm excited to go back there again! I loved being able to study about the Savior in preparation for Easter this year and I know that Christ lives!
