Glædelig Thanksgiving!!! Danish doesnt really have a word for Thanksgiving so we just use English! ;) But this week was yet another FIRE week here in Herning!!!
So we found five more friends this week!!! It is just nice that we got to be able to find and knock on some doors again! Some friends that we have!! Lars.. we knocked on his door and tought him a door step Restoration lesson which was way fire and we made an appoitment for Friday. He has read like the Koran and the Bible and a lot of religous books. By Friday he read a fourth of the Book of Mormon, and then he dropped us all of a sudden... I was totally not ready for that moment because i never really have gotten dropped on the spot like that so something to learn there for sure. So we had a breakthrough with a couple investigators. So with our lesson with A we were reading Mosiah 18 and we asked her what she needs to do after reading it. She is like, I need to be baptized... There was just a sweet moment of silence in the room and we are all smiling and the spirit was so strong. The only thing holding her back is the Word of Wisdom. She knows everything is true and loves the spirit and so she will be baptized if she can stop smoking and drinking coffee!! Another awesome moment with another friend was with R. HE is the type that needs proof and evidence before he belives in God but he said his first every prayer in his life last week. After he said the prayer, Elder Halling and I know he felt something because the spirit was definately there and he started opening up to us telling us his family problems and his problems with his dad and he prayed to God for help with his family problems with his dad. It was wonderful! Our families from Burma and the Congo are still progressing but we still need a translator if we are going to make further progress. Another cool story was that we stopped by a potential friend and she said she was busy again and I was like, Oh come on, it will just take like 5 minutes to share our message and she let us right in! Haha I was pretty stunned but it was awesome and her and her husband became new investigators and they are from Romania so we are just teaching so many people from different lands here it is awesome! :) We taught I again on Saturday and she showed us a scripture in Exodus 32 that God cant appear to a living man. We showed her that Stephen and Jacob have seen God as well and wrecked that worry ;) Man i just love knocking doors so much haha! The Lord has definatly blessed me over my mission to use personality and know how to teach people real quick it is awesome!!!!
SO i probs had one of the funnest splits I have ever had on my mission with Elders Beck and Jeppson!! So me and Elder Beck, who was also trained in Ballerup ;), were together and we wrecked shop! So we knocked in the morning because i skeemed that if people are home in the morning then we can teach them in the morning and make those hours productive!! Our first door we knocked on became two new friends!! At first the lady said she knew who we were and started going off how we all get married to each other in our temple in Utah... haha i honestly never heard that one before and then we got let in and taught her and her 25 year old son the Restoration!! Then we raked leaves for a couple of hours for a member, got stuck in a hygge pit, or a lady who is inactive who just talked for hours and then we got out of there and had like thirty minutes to knock. So the one door that opened called us the nicest religous people he has ever met and took a Book of Mormon and said we could come back in a couple weeks! Then because of our crazy schedule, we took lunch and dinner at 7 and 8 so we just played this board game called Munchkin like the whole night it was so fun!
So on Thursday we went up to Århus for a ZOne Training on the new Christmas initiative and how we are going to wreck winter! SO that was sweet to see the squad too then we taught family Burma and then had Thanksgiving dinner at the FOrslunds which was sooo fun!!! They are awesome!! The food was way clutch too ;) ANd mom get this, i washed the dishes after so be jealous haha!!
So i am not sick anymore but Elder Halling got the sickness so we are just going off from being sick to not being sick which is not fun... And V from Hungary came to church this week!! So i have no ideas what will go down for transfers... No idea which is pretty scary.. I totally want to stay in Herning though! And Goddie is going to Utah State! That is awesome you guys got to eat with the fam in Utah! Sounds so fun! And i am sooo jealous! I want to see the temple square christmas lights but Herning is better lets be honest ;).. The whole city was to the gå gade for the first advent day, every sunday til Christmas for the next month, and like held hands and danced and sung around the Christmas tree. We were biking home and i saw it and i was like Elder Halling we got to check it out! It was so sick to see the Danes and how much they love Christmas!! It was so hyggeligt!!
