Week #62-Herning

Miracles baby!!!! That would definatley be the theme of this week and maybe even a little soccer golf.... Stay tuned!!!!


Well first off we have nine friends who are progressing which is nuts!!!! And we had a party at church today with five friends coming to church!! So lets start with La. So we finally met with him again and we moved his date back til January 7th as well because he needs a little more time to stop smoking so we will see what will happenes. He said we were being a little pressy so we just foucesed on his love which is Jesus and read 3 nefi 11 with him and watched a whole bunch of Bible vidoes. We taught J who has been investigating for a long time. He is from Colubia and has abused missionaries time with service and they pretty much have built his house. WE taught him the Restoration with the old mission leader who is inactive and it went way well. We gave him another Mormons Bog because he gave his last one to a second hand store and asked the classic baptism question and he said yes if he found out it was true! Then we have the best family ever Ra and Li!! They are so sick! We ate ribs and pulled pork with them and had a family night with them. We taught them the Plan of Salvation and they asked way fire questions like how many spirits are there in total and if they died right now what kingdom would they go to. The good news is is that Ra said that our church is his favorite and makes the most sense out of all the other ones so that is way sick! And then after that hahaha we watched a lot of the Book of Mormon Musical sangs with them because Ra LOVES them and listens to them all the time and we explained to him the controversial statements they said and then showed them the Hello missionary version which is way weird to watch that with an investigator but so sick at the same time how tight we are with them. Then we met with them again on Saturday and and had scones and watched a mormon message and taught about prayer and commited them to read the Book of Mormon together! A!! SO we had a way good lesson on 3 nefi 11 with her on Wednesday! She loved it all and said our religion made the most sense as well and she asked great questions. THen i tried setting her on date and she is just like that is a big question i need some time to think about it... That would mean i would have to change my life right... She is getting it and so that is way good news! Then we taught the Burma fam and they finally held a commitment!! SHe was like i think my church is the right one and so we talk about authority and priesthood and the great apastasy. They invited us to their church which is the same time as out church but there is like 200 plus burmese people that go and it would be so dope to see and try to get more investigators!! And PRez is working on finding us a translator right now! On Sunday we taught C who is the Dansk FOlke Kirke organist at the library. And I am about to rage right here. He didnt like 2 nefi 2 at all! He called Jesus Christs life a fiasco and he hated the plan of salvation and asked why would i pray to know if the Book of Mormon is true because i dont want it to be.... Haha We dropped him like its hot!

Miracle Time!!!

Well Elder Halling and I experienced an awesome miracle over the weekend. So on Friday we stopped by like 15 potentials who all live in the same apartment complex and none of them were home. Then as we walked to our bikes the mother of the family from the Congo yelled down from the 3 sal and told us to come. We were way confused because our appointment with them was on Saturday. But we went up anyways and we did a little service project for them and the mom told us, through the kids, that she wanted to come to church even though she couldnt speak Danish or English. THen that night at correlation meeting we were talking about them and Elder McDougal was like wait, we have an inactive member who can speak Swahili, the same language the family can speak!!!!!!! We pretty much all just freaked out and then we called her and she was like we will see maybe.... Then on Saturday we told the family that a member in the branch speaks Swahili and so the two kids decide to come to. Then Saturday night we call the inactive member and she agreed to come and take this into account that she hasnt been to church in like 6 years! And they all came on Sunday and they loved each other and had a great time!!!! Reactivation and family baptism at the same time... :) And we got a new investigator, M. He is Swedish and met his wife at a Bible camp so you could say he is a little religious! Haha and I was sick this week so we didnt get to meet with her but we will this week! I talked with the main ELder Bennet last night and we were talking how i love Herning so much and that is because we are doing straight real missionary work all the time and it is so satisfying and the time is just flying by soooo fast!

Miracles and Soccer Golf

So district meeting was way fire on Thursday! We talked all about Miracles and first we watched a couple of Christs miracles he performed in the scriptures. Then we all went one round and shared a miracle we have experienced on our missions. The spirit was so strong it was awesome! Then we talked about how miracles wont happen unless we have the faith to make it happen. Then we went another round of miracle stories and it was so awesome! Look of Ether 12 12 through 22. It is some bars from Moroni! After that we had a District Activity! First we ate some way fire burgers then we played soccer golf!! It was so sick! At first we were way skeptical because it was in the middle of no where and we were way confused because there was no worker and there was just a box that said to drop 100 krones in it.... SO we did and played and it was so fun! I got a hole in one on my first kick which was way clutch! haha! Then we played some three on three to end it! The stud Elder Jeppson won the whole thing by one kick, i got second, and elder McDougal got third! It was a way fire District Activity! 

Snow has officially hit Denmark!!! Hood go crazy!! I dont think i know that family but that is legit that they got ceiled together! Haha a Halloween themed wedding would be so sick!! Haha i dont know what you talking about.... Just Kidding! TRUMP! hahahahhahaha! So Elder HAlling was sick on Wednesday and was sleeping in and i looked through the neighbors window and i saw that Trump won and i was like what...... Haha then i texted and called a whole bunch of missionaries i was tight with and we all freaked out! It was crazy! And i felt cool because i told everyone that trump won before the aps texted it out. But with the work, only a couple investigators talked about it, it wasnt too big of a distraction. Well i want to end this thing with a quote i shared in District Meeting. You can live the impossible dream or you can live the excuse. It is all up to you.

Make some miracles happen this week. I love you guys!
