Doing Cool Things: Elder Jeppson on the bag pipes

Today is the last week of this transfer.... so there is another reason why time is a theory haha.

This is going to brief so here come the highlights of the week:

-I beat an old lady a couple of time at chess.... had a lesson and gave her a Book of Mormon. Moral of the story is don't hold back;)

-Went to the great city of Aalborg from Tuesday night to Thursday afternoon. We stayed two night because of district meeting on Thursday and we aren't rich people haha

      - I got the privilege to be on splits with Elder Gudmundson. He was elder Giffords Companion so I had heard a lot about him. Great guy. He is a wizard at the bagpipes.

       - Which reminds me... I learned how to play the bagpipes:)) I think that is definitely a future interest for me haha. We were contacting at a park on a bright day in Aalborg and we got 2 potential people who want to meet out of it. It was so funny to see everyone just come out of the woodworks to see. Way great use of time. Plus I got to try.

-Didn't have the opportunity to go to MMA (or as we call it... fight Club haha) We went instead to a baptism for a boy in the Ward.

-Went to Skagen, got burned... So we knocked around and we ended up having a 1 hour lesson with a Turkish lady that speaks romanian. We had to use the computer to Google translate some Things and also we found the pdf version of the Book of Mormon in Romanian. So we get to come back next week and give her the real deal in book form:) She is way great:)

-We finally got in with a lady named L* Wayyyy cool story.  Basically, she was adopted into a Family in Sudan where she lived as a refugee. When she was older, she met an UN rep at a disco and fell in love. They lived all over the World and then when her husband passed away, she came up to Denmark with her boys. She has way cool stories and still has a diplomatic passport so she can basically just walk through any airport with anything haha. Way cool lady. Way positive!

-We found the original board game of Stratego in our apartment... in the down time of lunch and dinner hours we wage war with a game that I can actually beat Elder Shuppy in haha. Don't worry though... it isn't a priority ;)

-Saw a guy from fight club on the street and talked with him a bit. So this finding by fighting thing is totally working:)

-Transfers are Next week so it could get exciting up in here.

-Called a lady who was an Exchange student 5 years ago. She was positive so I called. Emphasize the was part. She rudely hung up so I texted her and asked why she did that haha. We ended up working out some misunderstandings and now we are on good terms.:) moral of the story is to use insane courage and tell people you're human too haha.

I got one quote for you all and them I'm out:

"Except in the case of His only perfect Begotten Son, imperfect people are all God has ever had to work with. That must be terribly frustrating to Him, but He deals with it. So should we. And when you see imperfection, remember that the limitation is not in the divinity of the work. As one gifted writer has suggested, when the infinite fulness is poured forth, it is not the oil’s fault if there is some loss because finite vessels can’t quite contain it all.10 Those finite vessels include you and me, so be patient and kind and forgiving."

-Elder Holland

Give a hug to someone you love. Happy Heart day!
