So I will start with my main vietnamese man Vo Long. Yesterday he recieved the Aaronic Preisthood and he asked me if I would ordain him to be a Priest. Very cool experience even though i am by no means an eloquent Danish speaker:) But the spirit was there nonetheless and it was great for me to feel how much Heavenly Father cares for each and every one of his children! But Vo Long is way happy and way stoked to go to the temple so we will get the chance to do that with him:)
C* is still being her usual awesome self! She is such a awesome girl and has such a drive to come closer to Heavenly Father! She is right on track to be baptized in two weeks and is super happy to ask whatever questions and stuff to find out how she can be better! We taught her last night and had Rubi and Mads (two homies from the ward that are young adult age:) ) with us and that was a great thing to have. Once again, the young adults are wayyy solid:) Odense is so solid in general:)
Our boy T* has been meeting with Jehovahs Witnesses and apparently they are bashing on us way hard so he doesn't really know what to believe. He is also schitzophrenic we found out so that doesnt help a ton. But he said he wants to meet one more time and if he has found an answer by then, we can keep teaching him. The JW´s are pretty big haters over here. I am not hating on them at all but its kinda sad how much they try to tear people down while talking about Christ. They love to give us grief when we walk by them on the Gå gade but we usually dont even look at them. So we will se what happens with him....
The russian disney princess investigator has been very busy so we are hoping to meet with her soon... She is either sincere in her schoolwork or very good at nicely saying no... haha:)
We were reffered to a guy who had met previously with missionaries and might want to again. We weren't really sure what to expect but we went and rang on his upgang (building) and he said to come up. When we got to his door he ushered us right in and sat us down and gave us some cola and just started talking. He is a way nice guy who has a small smoking problem and wants to quit. He asked us if we would come by every week and hold him accountable and share a small message.Well..... We could probably manage that ;) I mean we ARE missionaries haha. But he is pretty sweet.
Also this week we contacted a a lady who ended up wanting to come to general conference so that will be cool!
Last night we made "suicide calls," which are basically where you look through your contact list and call the people you dont know. And guess what... we got two potentials! We are calling them back today to set up a time but it was such a simple and cool way to find!
Sidenote though.... I accidentally forgot who one of the young adults was and i called her.... She said who she was and i still couldn't put a face to it so I'm a little afraid of a future awkward moment haha :)
Thats right... it has its own subheading ;) Probably the most wonderful purchase any could ever make! I must say that life is good:)
This week was nuts because we had 7 eating appointments in 6 days! I honestly have not had so much food inside of me at one time! And the last one to cap it off was at Ediths. (The one where i ate moutains on mountains of chicken nuggets..... remember? ) But this time it was frikadellers, which are basically meatball things. They are way good, don't get me wrong.... but moderation in all things. 14 IS NOT MODERATION.... But hey she was happy so i guess thats all that matters.... ;)
Follow the Mormonz:
So this week we got a call from a guy named Rasmus who is a student at the university here. He said he is writing an article on Mormons and wants to follow us around and watch us in our natural habitat (not exactly in those words ;) ) But he came to CUV night and basically interviewed us and asked us everything about us and what we do. It basically turned into him asking questions and then us bearing testimony on them. Pretty sweet right?
But then, he asked if he can follow us around for three hours while we contact..... Okay cool with me man. So we contacted and he took notes on us and stuff haha :)
here is a little snippet I translated for you :
"Darkness has fallen in Kongensgade in Odense. Not many people are left. They
two young men passing by groups and turning instead to people who are alone.
Like the two women, there is not any in the pedestrian area which will accept the Mormon Church
haha kinda funny but thats what he got out of our experience:) At the end though he tried to just leave... but then i said with insane courange "Hey so i have one question for you, what do YOU think about our message" He kind of hesitantly and nervously said he is not religious... but what i saw from his reaction, it seemed he didnt want to admit anything.
So hopefully he feels the truth of it all:)
So we went to contact for a little bit three days ago and i was walking and i saw a girl around my age. So i said "hey excuse me" and then she proceeded to say "oh ya just a sec". So she reached in her bag which confused me because i thought she maybe already had a card or something. But she pulled out some cigs and offered us some smokes hahaha:) I then told who we were and that we don't smoke, but she really didn't care too much about what we had to say. She was pretty confused why we didn't want here cigarettes but i thought it was hilarious :)
Well hey i hope that gives your fix of Denmark for the week! Make it a great one!:)

Make your legacy good enough that you would be happy making a movie on it and watching it with your family :)
