Attitude of Gratitude‏

Hey Guys! I am way glad it was a good turkey weekend!
So another transfer has gone by and I am staying here in Køge with Elder Thurman so nothing crazy there. We have really had a successful week this week though and seen a lot of miracles. I have truly been humbled this week to really see the lords hand in the Work and in my life this week. We started teaching several more people this week including a girl named Sofie. A couple weeks ago we knocked on her door but she said she was busy and wasnt really interested. So we kept on knocking and as we were knocking the last door of the opgang she ran Down and asked for a pamphlet or something. We gave it to her and went on our way. Well a couple weeks later we finally caught her home Again and it was basically the same thing. She said she read a Little from the pamphlet, but was busy and honestly didnt really sound to interested in meeting. So we left kind of bummed but a few hours later she randomly called us and said she really wanted to meet as soon as possible. We made an appointment for a couple days later (because it was late that night and the zone training was the Next day) but anyways, we met and it went really great! She told us that the first day we knocked on her door she had been in the folke kirke in køge and had prayed to know what church was the true church. Then less than 3 hours later we knocked on the door! It was really a humbling experience for me too just knowing that the Lord trusts us to teach her the gospel.

We also got to go Down to this town called Faxe Ladeplads and it was such a beautiful drive. We really got to just drive all throughout the Danish Countryside and see all the windmills and stuff. We also just randomly found 2 Castles as well! But ya it really just made me feel really grateful to be here in Denmark and really live in the moment a Little bit. For me it was not a coincidence that Thanksgiving was this week because it really just helped me to see the small miracles everyday, live in the moment and have an attitude of gratitude.

Love you Guys tons! Have another great week!

Hey yall! I love hearing whats going on every week! I am so excited for what is going on back home!! The move will be great!

This week was a lot of fun for me as well. We had an eating appointment with a lady named Rigmor WHO is Norwegian and speaks flat out Norwegian to us. I was super pumped because I can totally understand Norwegian!! The languages are pretty similar but the pronunciation of Words are different and there are a few Words that are the same but it was just way fun to be able to say I can also understand Norsk!

Speaking of the Nordic lands we had our distrikt activity this week and we all went to the Viking Museum in Roskilde (BTW, Roskilde was like the viking Capital almost back in the day). So that was a lot of fun.

Also we had our first snow storm here on Saturday and boy was it a doozy. We got around a foot to a foot and a half of snow in 1 day! Like seriously it was like Chaos in the streets as like every single dinky Little car was slipping and sliding all over the place, it was hilarious to Watch. They even cancelled church on Sunday because of it.

Anyways, the past couple of week we have been meeting with a couple named Samantha and Kim and they are just the greatest. They are literally some of the funnest people to meet with. They have been "investigating" for like 2 years now but havent been taught in like a year and a half before we started meeting with them Again. They have an awesome story how about how they found the church and although they have not come to church or met with missionaries for over a year, they Watch general conference, read the book of mormon and do everything mormons do. Literally the only thing different is they are not baptized yet. So they are probably are most positive people right now and we are working to get them baptized.

Anyway, you Guys have a great week!! Love you so much and thank you for all the support. It helps me so much!

Hey yall! First off shout out to mom and dad for hitting their 23rd year of marriage! Congratulations and love you Guys tons!!

This week was pretty good. One thing thats pretty exciting is that we just got a brand new 2015 toyata hybrid and guess WHO gets to drive? ME!! It is by far the best car in the mission and the rest of the missionaries hate us right now haha. We have also been blessed with a lot of success in our area this week. We got our first few eating appointments and a bunch of potential investigators. We also have several appoinments with them this week so hopefully they will become legit investigators. Overall this was a really fun week.

I love you Guys tons! Have a great week and hakuna matata!

Sick Week

Hey yall! Im glad it was a pretty good week and a pretty good Halloween! This week I am just going to apologize now. Everyone in our Apartment have been sick literally all week so we didnt do anything. By the weekend half of us were feeling better so we kinda went on splits over the weekend but other than that we didnt do Jack. We are doing a lot better though today so we should finally be able to actually do something this week.

Sorry this was way lame but we literally did nothing. Hope yall have a great week though. Love you Guys!
