Hey yall! So this week has been really good. My new companion is Elder Ericksen. He is from Morgan Utah and is way cool. We've been having a lot of fun together. This week was kinda weird though just because we've had to run back and forth to copenhagen for different reasons and stuff. Last Monday while I was waiting for elder Ericksen to come in we got to chill in copenhagen with all the missionaries leaving that day. That was a lot of fun getting to see some more sites and stuff so that was cool. 

I guess one of the best things that happened this week as far as missionary work went was that we got to give a tour of the church to a gymnasium (high school) class. It went way well and there were a couple kids who wanted book of mormons. They also invited us back to their school to give a presentation on a larger scale there. So we are way pumped for that. We have also been really trying to work on building relationships with the ward members and strengthening them. So this week we got some youth and played basketball with them and are setting up some Young Adult activities and stuff like that to get them more involved. 

Anyways, thats whats been going on here. Yall have a great week! Love you tons!

Kronborg Slot‏

Hey yall! Congrats Lindsey on getting accepted to Utah St. man! thats way awesome and Im totally stoked for you!

This week has been pretty fun. We had a distrkt activity to celebrate the final week of the transfer by going up to Kronborg slot in Helsingør. That was a lot of fun just hanging out with my buds and also seeing a bunch of history. The sisters in the distrikt also had a baptism on Saturday which went really great! Finally, like I said it was the last week of the transfer so we got transfer calls on Saturday. I will be staying here in Hillerød and training again so that will be fun.

Yesterday in church we had a great discussion in priesthood about getting answers to prayers and stuff. It got me thinking about how a lot of times it seems like I pray for something and I dont feel like a get an answer for a long time. When this happens, I've learned that you got to keep moving and finding the answer for your self. I compare it to standing in a completely dark room. If you just stand there and not do anything the light is not going to get turned on. You got to start with what you know. for example: I know that light switches are usually on the walls. So the least we can start out doing is slowly moving and finding the walls and then feeling around for the light switch. And eventually we can always get our answer, it just sometimes requires us to act on our own, maybe make our own decisions, and continue to be faithful in keeping the commandments and doing what we're supposed to and eventually it will come. Thats basically my thoughts on yesterday.. Anyways, Have a great week everyone!

Tempel Tur‏

Hey yall! So this week was pretty good. I would say the highlight was definitely being able to go to the temple this past saturday though. Lise, the lady we baptized in Køge, went to the temple for the first time and did baptisms for her mom. It was a way awesome experience to get to participate in that as well. It was also way fun because the stake was doing a youth temple trip so that was a ton of fun to see so many people I new from my past areas and being able to catch up a bit.
Have a great week! Love you Guys!

February 1, 2016

So this week was pretty average. Nothing to crazy going on. On Thursday we had a pretty fun activity with the unge voksne in the warde. We played a game, ate dinner and just talked and hung out and stuff. We had a great appointment with one of our investigators who has been investigating for like 5 years where we kinda just did a do or die type lesson and invited him to baptism. To our shock he actually said that he wanted to be baptized! So we are going to continue to work with him and see if we can make a baptismal date with him this week. Other than that this past week has been really slow. This coming week should be really busy though so that's good.
Anyways, Have a great week!
Love, Ældste Pike
