April 6, 2015

Hey ma and pa!

Just so you know, we ended up needing to do our emailing in the church today instead because Elder Higby and I had made too many appointments over the last week for Tuesday, we wouldn't have been able to get around to everything.

It's been a really good week for us here in Sønderborg. 

Elder Higby and myself are getting along great, and have actually made a goal to only speak Danish for the rest of the transfer.  I have for the most part spoken Danish whenever outside of the apartment with companions, but this is the first time 100 percent, and Elder Higby and I feel like we're making some improvements. 

It's crazy how good his grammar is for how long he's been out.  He corrects me all the time on things, and I trained his MTC companion ;)  it does get kind of annoying sometimes, but I'm patient  because I really do want to get better, plus he still has a fairly young vocabulary so we even each other out a bit. 

Anyway, that's pretty much my life right now. 

So, this week went by maybe a little bit slower than they normally do, but, we still were able to get around to a lot of different things that we wanted to, and were able to share the initiative helives.mormon.org with pretty much everyone we came in contact with. 

There are a lot of people that seem actually quite interested, so we are praying for some good feedback that we know is coming the missions way. 

Elder Higby and I have been talking a lot about the confidence we have in the mission, and it's great to see the snowball effect that it's having on the mission.  We are both really proud to be a part of such a huge explosion in the work here during this time. 

This week specifically though, we did have a rough time with getting around to everyone we usually meet with because they were busy, or out of town, though that didn't stop us from being able to find a few new friends. 

Nobody that we have found is being regularly taught yet, but we have confidence in our little batch of potentials, and one woman who had spoken with missionaries before even invited us to come help teach a religion class in folkeskole in July.  That was nice to know she thought well enough of us to invite us to something like that. 

General Conference has been a wonderful opportunity to learn, and today we'll have the chance to go meet with Anders and MaryAnn and watch the last session with them.  I'm looking forward to that. 

It's been wonderful to get outside and finally be able to feel some sun. It's starting to warm up here :)

Love you both lots!! :)
