Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I hope you all had an absolutely wonderful Thanksgiving week because I sure did! I was feeling pretty low at the beginning of the week because I knew that Danes don't celebrate Thanksgiving and that we would most likely be alone the entire day. But what do you know the Lord blessed us with an incredible family from the great U S of A to invite us over for Thanksgiving dinner!! His name is Trey Greenwood and is an inactive member of the church, but when he heard that some American missionaries were going to go without a Thanksgiving, he quickly invited us over to spend it with his lovely wife and children. It was such an amazing afternoon. Trey had an ancient guitar that had been broken for decades and had never been able to fix it (one of the tuning pegs was cracked where the string wraps around. Pardon my guitar jargon) so I took a swing at it and got it sounding as good as new!! We played guitar and sang songs together all night long. It was a night to remember.

Other than that, we've been very blessed with tons of people to teach. There used to be days in my last transfer where we would sometimes go an entire day without teaching a single lesson, but that NEVER happens now. The investigators just come flowing in. We found a new investigator this week named Natada. She's from Thailand and her Danish is really not that good. We sat next to her on a bus one day and started talking. We couldn't get much across, but managed to find out that she had recently lost her husband. Naturally we started telling her about the plan of salvation and that she would see her husband again, and she lost it. Right there on a crowded bus full of judgmental Danes she just started weeping. She asked us how this was possible that she could ever see him Again and we continued to teach the entire discussion right there on the bus. As she got off at her stop we managed to get her phone number and give her the address to the church and what do you know, she showed up to church on Sunday!!

The Lord Places people in our path every day. It's quite incredible. Dang I love the Plan of Salvation. Eternal families are SWEET!!!!

I love you all!
