Week #48 Odense

Familie!!! I am staying in Odense!!!!!! Odense for another transfer baby!!! Lets go!! This week was definately a highlight week of the mish! We had to give a last minute fire side to all the Young men in denmark #nobiggie and we had a baptism!!!!

Camp Helamen

SO this is a legendary story that i will always remember! So last Friday, so like ten days ago, we get this call from an American bro WHO told us that there was going to be a youth camp out and we as missionaries needed to get together and give a fireside on Tuesday about the Armour of God and the Stripling Warriors. Then he told us that he would give us the information for it. Tuesday comes around and we heard nothing about it so we just made other plans. Then about at one thirty, and this thing starts at two.... we get a text with the information and it is in the middle of no where like where these Woods are and we are like there is no way. Then we call Prez O and ask him if the dude even told him about it because the American bro told him that all the missionaries on Fyn could go. Then Prez said that no one every called him and told us to tell the American member up in Aalborg to call prez. Then we get a call from Prez and he tells us we have to go and inspire some kids to go on missions. Then we call the guy from Aalborg and we have to lead a fireside about the armour of God and the stripling warriors. And i am like Elder Keller, and cant even explain the Armour of God in English!!! Haha shout out to not paying attention in Primary when i was Young.... woops lolzzzz! But we had like an hour to whip something up, and we get there to the camp and then we find out that all the Young men in Denmark will be there! So i got to see my squad from Gladsaxe which was way sick to catch up with them and tthey said that I spoke way better Danish now! Haha! Yesss! So i kicked the ball around with them and then had hamburgers with the kids and then we had the time for our fireside! We all surrounded a bon fire and it was way epic! So we just went in way chill, getting to know them, asking WHO wants to go on a mission and where. Then we started talking about the helmet, shield, breastplate, sword, shoes, and girdle your loins. It was crazy. It went soo smooth and it is crazy cuz i didnt even know the Words to the amour of god in Danish but i learned real quick lol. We talked a lot about what we can do to have the armour of God with us  by reading our scriptures and praying. It was way cool to see them and a lot of them were not that enthusiastic about our Little message and that reminded myself of me a couple years ago. But you know elder reed, always skeeming. I could tell that we were losing the kids attention in the middle of the fire side so i pulled a couple fast ones and asked WHO has played American football?? And compared that to the helmet, because if you dont Wear a helmet you will get hurt and i was like i played and wore a helemet but i still got concussions and that is why i am a Little crazy.... haha jokes for days... but i compared that to have the helmet of salvation on by that we need to protect our thoughts from the advesary. Then with the sword i was like WHO has seen star wars. Now WHO knows darth mall??? And WHO remembers his double sided sword?? And like all the hands in the camp went up lol! Now there is a scripture in the Bible that says the Word of God is more powerful then a double sided sword and that if we keep ahold of the Word of God that we can overcome Satans temptations. And i shared how reading the scriptures changed my life and challenged them to read everyday :) Then my last sports analogy came with the shield of faith. I asked WHO played soccer?? Every hand is raised. Then i ask what happens if there is no defense in a soccer game.... Well the other team would score a lot of goals! And i was like exactly, and if we dont have our shield of faith, we will Loose our testimony! Then after we have our Whole armour on, we are ready for battle like the Stripling warriors and we compared it to a mission! It was so awesome to get kids pumped to go on missions!! And it was insane to see our mouths just be filled. It was so crazy because it was so easy to speak Danish and just after it was over me and Elder Keller were like, we just gave an hour long fireside in Danish that we had like no time to prepare for! So blessed. And like all the kids loved us. They made shields for the Armour of God and three kids gave us their shields! Haha! Way good memory to have!

Nadias Dåb!!

Well on Saturday Nadia got baptized! It was awesome to help her along the way even though it seemed like she didn't needed it. haha she was a real Golden Investigator. Like all of the Ward was at a wedding in København for a guy in the ward's wedding so me and elder keller had to go crazy with making the programs and filling the font and all that good stuff! But it went super smooth and there was a SUPER strong peaceful spirit there which was awesome. And I have been soooo sick for the past two days so i couldn't give her the Holy Ghost. :( I was in bed all Sunday morning and then went for the confirmation and then went home and slept the rest of the day. I have just been way Dizzy and have had a way bad headache so yea.... haha it has sucked but she still got the Holy Ghost from Elder Bennet and it is awesome to see that she became a member! And it was way cool because it was fast and testimony meeting yesterday and her uncle WHO is in our Ward shared his testimony. And so he has been in Sweden for the Whole short conversion process and said that he got invited to the cookie aften that nadia came to on facebook and in the past he would have ingnored it but he got a prompting from the holy ghost to say he wasn't going... leading to Nadia to see it!! hAHA the church is soooo true!

Oh and on Friday we had a blizt splits where like 16 missionaries got to come Down and we just went hard and found people for a couple hours. There was also some members there from the second Ward so it was way cool. I got to knock the richest houses in Odense with the missionary member legend Ken Hall so that was interesting. Haha I guess he went crazy on his mission and baptized a Whole bunch of people. And he like was all about breaking the ice at the door so we had the funniest door approaches like asking for Water or like screaming and saying we are here to save you! Haha so that was way solid! So F is going way well. He passed Again but we didn't get the chance to meet with him last week:( And F is from Germany but moved to denmark when he was Young. And C is going solid too. SHe was on vacation last week so we didnt get to meet but she will be a way good member friend for N. I didnt get to see EJ cuz we didnt go to CUV because of the fireside on Tuesday. Me and Elder Keller are doing solid! We are way pumped to go another one together and we are going to go way hard this transfer so it should be good! And he has been way good to take care of me while I have been sick so that it all good! AND NO we didnt move the piano and i didn't see X these week either :( And Elder Teynor left to Bornholm to Elder Adams and I guess they were best friends in high school so that is a Little fun. And Elder Evans got Elder Gerber WHO is two transfers ahead of me. ANd hahahaha yes Bill!!! That man is still going strong! We got to send the missionaries after that man ;) Haha that sounds like a party! ANd that is funny Jace said my room is still a mess! I swear I cleaned it before i left! haha! And that is crazy with all the missionaries coming and going! Time is just flying! I love you parents!!!!
