Hey Mom and Dad!
Highlight of the week... Three months ago Æ. Hammond and I talked to a
very nice couple, Frederik
and Mallory, they just got married and are in their 20s. We taught them
a lesson and offered them a book but they said no. We ended up giving
them our number and that was the end of the conversation. This last week
Æ. Whitlock and Æ. Hansen were on their way to Århus
and ended up sitting next to Frederik on the train. They had an amazing
talk! Frederik mentioned that he had talked to some missionaries before
in Århus and that he would like to talk with them again. The Fredericia
elders ended up getting his number and told him that the missionaries
would give him a call soon!
While on splits the next day Æ. Whitlock and I gave Frederik a call and he said that he could meet that day. Æ. Whitlock
and I both went to the appointment and right when we got there Frederik
pointed to me and was like " Hey it was you that i talked to in the bus
stop!" I responded "Are you sure??" He responded " YES! YES! IT WAS
YOU! " At that moment it all came back to me and i suddenly remembered
everything that we had talked about 3 months ago. We ended up answering a
ton of questions that Frederik had about the church. He told us that he
was very religious and said that if the spirit told him to do something
that he would always act upon it. We actually talked a lot about the
Word of Wisdom and at the end of the lesson he told us that something
was telling him that he needed to stop smoking. His wife was there too
and she was very sweet and attentive as well. The whole appointment i
felt like i had known them for months, we had amazing conversation and
in the end they both got the impression that we are just normal people.
AMAZING COUPLE! I know they are going to get baptized! They are going on
there honey moon for the next two weeks because they just got married
on new years but they said that we could come again when they got back!
What a blessing the Lord has given me and Æ. Hammond!
I don't want to get your hopes up or anything but i honestly think that
this couple is going to be "The Golden Couple" of my mission. Me and
Frederik hit it off, he is sooo cool!!! I told him all about myself and i
how i like to skate and snowboard and he thought that was super dope.
At the end he was like "You guys are actually pretty cool!" I cant wait
to teach them again! Such an amazing couple! Æ. Whitlock and I bore testimony the whole time and told him
that it is because of the Gospel that we are the people we are today.
Ahh man they are amazing! i hope that all made sense! I was so excited
to tell you about them! ha.
Everything else is great! We only have 2 weeks together
and then he will be leaving. I am so glad that i have some more time in
Århus! =) Æ. Karen was amazing!! He pretty much talked about how we need to let our light
shine so that others can see it! He said that we needed to smile more
and really show that joy that comes from the Gospel. I thought about
that a lot and realized that smiling and being happy is another way that
we can bear testimony. When we smile and are happy and show enthusiasm
others can see the joys that come from the Gospel. I bore my testimony
in church yesterday and shared a thought or two about what Æ. Karen had
said. Everyone came up to me after and said that they really enjoyed my
testimony. Amazing week! =) Today we are playing Badminton with our
misson leader, should be fun! ha
Sounds like everything back home is great and that everyone is doing
amazing! I love and miss you guys so much! When we were teaching
Frederik and his wife we talked a little about families and i almost
lost it when i was telling him about what my family meant to me. Thanks
for all your prayers and support! Telling everyone i said hi!
