THE ONE WE NEEDED
HOW OUR HALLOWEEN WAS SPENT
|This really should have been with last week. This is Alla Helgons Dag. Basically, this is how our Halloween was spent. There aren't any huge cemeteries in Kungsbacka, but the one we found was a beautiful sight to see.|
MAYBE SMILING KEEPS US LOOKING YOUNG OR SOMETHING
, we met Eustadius. Again, I had never met him before. But as soon as he walked around the corner, he had a smile on his face. I couldn't help but smile as well. They can be quite contagious. We had our lesson, and had a good discussion. But more than anything else, I was impressed with his positive outlook on life. He had his own problems and worries, but he is doing it with a smile on his face. I may add that we thought he was in his late twenties, but he told us he was 44. So maybe smiling keeps us looking young or something. But I appreciated his positive attitude.
WATCHING AS A HAS BEEN
I LOVE THE WAY THE WARD LIFTED WHERE THEY STAND
I'm not sure how much the conflict in Syria is talked about at home, but it is a pressing issue here. Every day there are families looking for a new place to call home. They walk, drive, or do whatever they can to find a land of peace. I can only imagine their thoughts as they come into the new land. I felt overwhelmed, and I had people waiting for me at the airport. I had a warm home, food, and friends to welcome me. I still felt out of place. So I can't imagine what they are going through. But one of the things that we got to help with this week was a flea market for children. The members in the ward decided to help out and began organizing the project. There was a lot of effort put in, and it turned out great. All the money that people paid for the stuff went directly, by text, to help the refugees. We can't stop the conflict in Syria, and we may not have the means to help every person in need. But I loved the way the ward lifted where they stand. They made an effort to help their brothers and sisters in need.
A BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO SPEND THE FALL
|One of the big differences between Skåne and Göteborg is trees. Trees and their "mountains" which are really rocky hills of granite. But it is a beautiful place to spend the fall.|
