Week 32 - Dead Fish and Splits


Hi! Had a pretty good week.

Tuesday and Wednesday we had splits with the sister training leaders in Copenhagen. I was with Sister Bagley.
After we knocked on some doors we took a break by this pretty lake to evaluate... and I spotted a dead fish, so of course I made Sister Bagley pick it up!



We got two new investigators this week! They were people we contacted on the street the week before, but we called and made appointments with them for next week, so now they count as new investigators!  We really needed that too, because we are lacking people to teach. 

Other than that not a lot of stuff happened this week. The other day while I was sitting on the floor of our apartment trying to get motivated to exercise, I saw a random yellow piece of paper with this poem on it! I really liked it and thought I’d share :)

It All Depends on Whose Hands It’s In

A basketball in my hands is worth about $19.
A basketball in Michael Jordan’s hands is worth about $33 million.
It depends on whose hands it’s in…

A baseball in my hands is worth about $6.
A baseball in Mark McGuire’s hands is worth $19 million.
It depends on whose hands it’s in…

A tennis racket is useless in my hands.
A tennis racket in Pete Sampras’ hands is a Wimbledon Championship.
It depends on whose hands it’s in…

A rod in my hands will keep away a wild animal.
A rod in Moses’ hands will part the mighty sea.
It depends on whose hands it’s in…

A sling shot in my hands is a kid’s toy.
A sling shot in David’s hand is a mighty weapon.
It depends on whose hands it’s in…

Two fish and 5 loaves of bread in my hands is a couple of fish sandwiches.
Two fish and 5 loaves of bread in God’s hands will feed thousands.
It depends on whose hands they’re in…

Nails in my hands might produce a birdhouse.
Nails in Christ Jesus’ hands will produce salvation for the entire world.
It depends on whose hands they’re in…

As you see now it depends whose hands it’s in.
So put your concerns, your worries, your fears, your hopes, your dreams, your families and your relationships in God’s Hands.
Because, it depends on whose hands they’re in.
I loved this! Especially as a missionary. I really can't do any effective work here in Denmark all by myself. BUT if I put myself in the Lord’s hands, he will use me to work miracles. I have already seen it happen. 



This is my favorite pastry
Have a great week!
