Book is blue, Church is true

This week has been absolutley nuts like all other last weeks of transfers I've had. We have been super busy with splits, meetings, conference and of course, doing missionary things:) haha 

SO I've been transfered to Aarhus up in Northern Jylland. It is the second largest city in Denmark and it is super awesome. I am companions with Elder Amos who I know really well all ready so I am super stoked. It is going to be a crazy awesome transfer!

Well i have pretty much zero time and as much as I would like to give you a detailed summary... I cant':) But I will type as fast as possible with as much info as I can muster:

>So the main thing that happened this week was with B* He knows the church is true!! Last week when we asked to pray with him to find out if the church is true for him he said that afterwards during the week he had a peaceful clarity of mind like he has never experienced. He is very scientific, so he has thought about things at every imaginable angle or possibility..... but he had never ever felt or thought as he did this last week. He said it kinda started to fade after a while and he wanted to have it again. We promised that if he does what it says in the Book of Mormon in  2 Nephi 32 and 33, he will be able to have that feeling always. SO after that we invited him to be baptized and he said he would. We suggested the 15th of may and he told us he would be in Africa. So we asked about the week before and he said he would be in Africa. So we asked when he could and it turns out that he is MOVING to Ghana!! So we asked if he could do it before he left and he said that that would be too quick.... SO we finally figured out after that that we could just refer him to the Ghana Elders.... bummer that we cant teach him any longer (not that I am in Odense anymore anyways haha) but not bummer that he found out the church is true:)))))

>Visited A* and M*: Got more bomb Syrian food and learned Aarabic:) As for the Gospel though, they are not super sincere and do not really hold to their word about reading scriptures and other simple things. So we think that they need a break for now. Great people though:)

>Taught A way sweet Vietnamese lady named K* She is decently positive and loves talking with us. She basically thinks that we are just the same church and is kinda of confused/ confusing haha. So we will see where that goes.

Sorry i forgot my journal... i cant remember anything because all of my recent memory is filled with "knowledge bombs" from general conference haha.

Spiritual thought:

Elder Uchtdorf's talk in priesthood session was stellar! It wasn't even fair how much info/knowledge was dropped by someone in his second language. That man is the real deal and is without a doubt an apostle!

Well i hope you all enjoyed your week! I am sure great things are happening because the sun is out now :D

Hils your friends,
