Okay, it's been a crazy week.
I'm currently sitting in the library with my new companion, Elder Nelson. He's from good old Alpine Utah and went to Lone Peak with me, yet somehow, I never even knew him... Haha it's a big school so I guess it's possible. Anyway, we've had an absolutely INSANE day with transfers. Transfers are super crazy in Denmark because of the fact that we all use public transportation and each missionary has about three huge suitcases and bike, so there is absolutely no Space on the trains for us. Ah it was just super stressfull. But it's over now.
My last week with Elder Hooper was just incredible. We used the fact that he was leaving as an excuse to get all of our investigators to meet with us, so we were able to teach soooooo many lessons. We finally met with a man by the name of Martin Rif, who we had assumed had dropped off the face of the earth, but we taught him and committed him to be baptized!! He's in the process of moving, so he says that he can't get baptized until January, which means I probably won't be apart of it, but that's just the way it goes sometimes. Planting for the future generation to harvest.
We were also able to meet with the Hirse Family.... I'm not sure if you remember them, but I told you all that she was some kind of author. Yeah.... turns out she's a little more than that. Apparently Maria Hirse is one of the most famous people in Denmark. She's some kind of television star, and we've been teaching them this whole time, we've been completely clueless!! Not that it matters. She's still a daughter of God, right? It's just way cool to know how famous she is now. Whenever we tell members that she's a serious investigator, they get all star-struck and ask if we can get them an autograph. Haha it's really funny. Anyway, her 16 year old daughter Victoria said that she wants to become a member. Only problem is her father. He won't let her do anything until she's 18, so... yeah. That's kinda sad. But the lesson we had with them last night was amazing. We taught about eternal families and temple marriages, and the spirit was soooooooo strong. When we showed her a Picture of the Salt Lake Temple she was completely speachless. She thought it was the most beautiful thing she had ever seen in her life.
Yeah... things are going well here in Hillerød. Elder Hooper and I finally started to see the fruits of our work. I just really hope that things don't change too much with my new companion being here.
Oh hey check out this sweet sign we made in Copenhagen today.
Love you all
