Well, I officially have just 6 months left here in Denmark. Although I miss you all at home, I want to stay here forever! I Love Denmark, serving, sharing the gospel and missionary life!Last P day we went into Copenhagen and went to this cool “street food” place! Lots of cool looking food from all around the World in a little warehouse across the Canal in Copenhagen. Søster Jex and I split some Moroccan food that looked good. We also got some ice cream and went to the top of Vore Frelsers Kirke. You could see all of Copenhagen, and see to Sweden.
Thursday we had district meeting, and it was our district leaders’ birthday. We had originally wanted to go out for district dinner and go to an Asian buffet, but that didn’t work out. So, instead we made an Asian buffet for him and surprised him when he came to district meeting! Søster Jex and I made homemade egg rolls and it all turned out really good!
Back at Zone conference we watched a video of some BYU students WHO went out to different cities around the world and asked people to read pages of the Book of Mormon and share their thoughts. It was a way cool video, and on Saturday here in Copenhagen we recreated it!We set up two tables on different parts of the big main shopping area downtown and tried it out! We just went around asking people if they would read a page form the Book of Mormon and highlight what they liked and then share their thoughts. We had a decent amount of people participate and gave out some Books of Mormon and got a bunch of people WHO wanted to know more! It was really fun.
Also a miracle. It was scheduled to rain the exact time we planned to do it... so we all prayed SO much that the Lord would hold the rain back! And of course, when we started we had a little bit of sunshine, and not a single drop the whole 2 hours we were out! Then, right as we packed up, it started raining. I know he held the rain back just for us :)
Sunday we also decorated president’s office because it is his birthday on Monday. We made a banner with favorite memories from a whole bunch of us missionaries, and put lots of flags and balloons all around.
Missionary work in our area is good. We are planning a baptism for Besweri this Saturday. We have lots and lots of appointments with people and honestly are a little overwhelmed! There is just not enough time in the day to do everything. I feel so blessed that the Lord has given us so many people to teach in our area. We had gotten a lot of new investigators that have burned us and not showed up, but we also have a few that are really progressing, so everything works out.
I am so excited to finish strong these last 6 months! I am pretty insufficient, but I have definitely learned that as long as I try my best, the Lord will help me with the rest.
