Hej Mor og Far! 

I had a pretty great week, let me tell you about it :)

Over the course of this last week we've started to see some gradual improvements with the way the work is going here.  We're finding a lot more potentials, our fireside this last week was a huge success, zone training gave us a great renewed focus on finding, and the overall morale of the district is awesome.  Not to mention the other two companionships had stellar weeks with how much they were teaching.  They are a group of hard workers.  

Earlier this week we had an appointment with a young Greenlandic woman named 'P'.  The Seden Elders gave us her information, and apparently she had had a pretty rough past and was looking to change her life.  We taught her this week and after the first lesson we invited her to be baptized on the 15th of August, and she accepted!  

We focused a lot on how the message would bring her hope, and I could tell she really felt the spirit.  As it would turn out, she lives in the other Odense ward's area, so we made sure to introduce her to the sisters in the other ward at the fireside, and they are working with her now.  She also came to church, and it sounds like she's being taken care of, so we'll pray that all continues to go well, and hopefully we'll have our newest Greenlandic member here in a few weeks!  

This week in church was really great as well.  We had such a large guest class that we ended up moving into a bigger room.  A few weeks ago we challenged our recent convert 'XC' to bring a friend to a church activity, and after coming to one young adult activity, her friend also came to church, and brought another friend with!  

The first friend got to be close with the sisters at the young adult activity, and she'll be working with them.  The other friend is named 'R', he's from Latvia, and he had some good questions about the church after I helped translate for him in sacrament meeting.  He gave us all of his info, and gave us a time to stop by this week.  We have been pretty happy about the way that this week turned out.

I miss you lots!  Then again there are a lot of days where I can't stand the thought of coming home... Just know that I love you all in any case :) 

Have a great week!
