email from November 19

Hey Mom and Dad!

This last week was great. We had a wonderful thanksgiving on thursday. We played football in the morning with about 26 missionariess and so that was fun! Then we feasted and then had a talent show which was so funny! haha. Then it was 6pm and my old comp Æ. Whitlock and I went on splits and contacted. Wow come to thing of it, i actually miss him a lot. I learned so much from him and he will always be someone i look up to my whole mission. We had such a good time together that night.

Saturday was fantastic! Here's the miracle... So Æ. Hammond and I began to spice up our contacts a little with high hopes of being able to get more investigators. Well it worked! We were contacting in a park and as this guy started coming toward us we said " Hey we are not from here and we are freezing are tails off right now! " The guy laughed and said " Yeah I'm freezing too and I'm not from Denmark either! Where are guys from?!" He is actually Romanian currently studying business here. We ended up talking to him for about 15 minutes and in the end we invited him to church and he said he would be there tomorrow. Sunday came and even though lacking all faith that he would actually show up, he did indeed come for sacrament and guest class! What a miracle! We taught him the restoration and gave him a Book of Mormon in Romanian and he said he would read it and be at church again next Sunday. What a blessing and an answer to our prayers. The Lord wants to put people in our paths but we first have to show that we want it by putting in the effort.


Things are definitely picking up a little. We are being blessed everyday! Everything i learned from Æ. Whitlock is now being applied here in Århus!
Everyday gets better here, everyday my attitude changes and everyday we see miracles! Dont worry i am staying warm!
