Hey Ma and Pa!

Here's how things are going.  We've had a fairly good week as far as getting out to service, and pushing people to help us with our fireside goes. 

Elder Brindley and I feel like this week's numbers weren't a very good reflection of the work that was actually put into it.  We both have been a little tired from splitting and stacking wood (a service project we did three times this week) :)  

Beautiful Danish street.
With that said, we're grateful for the chances we do get to serve, and we are planning in time this week for a better variety of activities so that we can find ourselves being engaged in more than just a few ways. 

We also have our 'Meet the Mormons' film evening in the church.  We are really excited for this, and both wards have been working hard to find friends to come with.  A great deal of this week has been dedicated to inviting members to bring a family member or friend with, and from what we can already see we should have a good turnout. 

One woman we contacted on the street yesterday told us that one of our good member friends Jonathan had already invited her!  It was exciting for us to see that our idea had already reached out that far. 

On to some more interesting news.  'J' is moving back to Helsingør!  She moved back in with 'L' yesterday.  She said last week that they had been talking about it and I guess they both realized the grass wasn't really greener. 

'J' has also had a revival in her testimony from all of the support that she has received, and in her last message to all the missionaries she let us know that she really felt it was all true, she was just having a rough time.  Keep them in your prayers! 

Got a bit rained on ...
One last fun experience.  We were on the way to buy some new brake pads for my bike earlier this week (because I was grinding metal) when we rode by some people that looked like they were moving.  I felt impressed to stop and offer our service, and they politely said thanks but no thanks, however, one man said 'you all believe in Joseph Smith right?' after we told them we were missionaries from the Mormon church.  We said 'yes! One and the same.', and then as he started heading back inside he said it was a shame we wouldn't be around for a while, he was curious.  Like music to my ears :)  He isn't really believing, but he would like to hear more.  We gave him a Book of Mormon, and an invite to our fireside this week. 

He's a total hipster so he didn't have a phone to call him on, just an email, but we're really hoping that his curiosity pushes him a little bit.  We've written to him, and I'll be sure to let you know if we get a response.  

I'm loving being a missionary :)
Love you both!
