Week 38 - It's finally spring!

We had a crazy busy week!
I will start at the beginning. We met this way nice Muslim couple, and came back to bring them a Book of Mormon in Persian. They invited us in and we chatted about our religions for a while. Then, we needed to leave to get home in time, and they are like wait you can’t go yet! And they brought out a GIANT plate of traditional Afghanistan food! Then, they started showing us all these like.... Muslim (kind of anti-Christian) videos, because I think they were trying to convert us.... ha-ha. They were way nice people, and it was delicious food, but awkward because we needed to go but couldn't figure out how to politely leave. 
After being in the country for a certain amount of time, you are required to take a language test. My language test was on Wednesday, so we traveled to Copenhagen with Søster Barney and Kuhlo for that. It was WAY easy. Pretty much just questions like "Sophia has 4 children. How many Children does Sophia have? " That kind of stuff.... And there was also some cultural question about government stuff I did have to study for, but I am pretty positive I passed!
Then we went to the mission office to sign some papers and we got to say bye to the office couple, the Buxton’s, because they are going home this week. They were so awesome! Luckily they live up in Logan Utah so I am sure I will see them again. :) We also got to meet the new office missionaries, who are from Gilbert AZ! They will be great too. 
By this point in the day it was like 3:30 and we had not really eaten... so we went to the bakery that was below the office, and broke. ;( Søster Baird and I have tried really cutting out sugar so we can feel a lot healthier, but we just couldn't do it anymore!  I got a Pølser horn (like a fancy pig in a blanket) and a lemon tart! It tasted like heaven. I have decided that Danish pastries are the exception to any diet. 
Also, as we passed through KBH ( Copenhagen train station), Some people were handing out free boxes of rice and quinoa, so of course being Missionaries we all stood in line and got some free food. SCORE!  
Friday the lord really blessed us and we found 3 new investigators all in a matter of like an hour and a half! 
We also had a great lesson with Tage this week. We taught about prayer and invited him to start praying. He then texted us the next day saying how he has tried it, and he feels like it is really good!!! THAT is a missionary miracle. We are meeting with him again this week. 
Saturday we went to a baptism of a lady back in Copenhagen that Søster Baird helped teach. We got there like 45 min early, but the font wasn't filled and so there were about 10 missionaries going back and forth with buckets trying to help fill it up in time!

After the baptism we went to a member’s house and helped lay pavers for his driveway and backyard. That was nice because the weather is starting to be beautiful! 
It is starting to get so green here. The fields are also starting to bloom with bright yellow flowers. I'll take some pictures when they are in full bloom. There has been some days in the last week where it has been 70s, blue skies, green grass beautiful flowers and a light breeze and it is just perfect! BUT I am still in Denmark, and the weather changes so fast. Sometimes we will have blue skies in the morning and then when we go out after out studies it is dark and rainy. The clouds move fast here. 

We also stopped one night biking home because the sunset was just BEAUTIFUL. This by the far the prettiest place I have been in Denmark, or maybe it’s just the spring. But I love it!
