S5:E5 "A little something to make me sweeter "

Hello friends and Family! Happy 9th of December! I hope you all are having a good time with snow, and shoveling it.
Monday was a sweet day, we wrote home, then bought some food, then we had an eating appointment with a way cool Family that told us one of the funniest proposal stories I have ever heard. Luckily we gave the lesson that night so we got to stay for an hour longer. This was also the first night I had real Æbleskiver, before I only had the frozen ones. So Monday was a good day.
Tuesday was Zone conference, so we talked about the characteristics of Christ a lot. It was very spiritual, and I learned a lot about how we should act, and how we can become better people through Christ. I also learned a lot about Christ's love for all of us, and that we all have the oppurtunity to show others that love. After the spiritual uplifting, we ate a Danish Christmas dinner, Again. It was way good, as it always is. Then we watched a movie called "Ephraims Rescue" It's a pretty good movie, so that was a lot of fun. After that happened we went on splits with another Ward and just went around home teaching. I love doing that, because I get to hear other members' testimony on the church, and their experiences.
Wednesday we started off the day by going to the hospital because Elder Gudnason had to get some blood taken out to make sure that he is doing okay. Then we went out finding for a bit, and found this fairly positive girl that had met with missionaries before. She said that she wasn't super interested, but she said that we could talk with her some time. Which was nice. :D After that we had another eating appointment, where we got interrogated by the Family about our lives. Which was fun as well because we got to toss eachother under the bus on certain Things.
Thursday rolls around and we start off the day by visiting the bishop and eating some lunch with him. (Standard rugbrød lunch) and we talked with him for 2 to 3 hours about less actives in the Ward, and also testimonies. So that was a lot of fun, and he taught us about how important it is to study our living prophets Words. After we left the bishop's house, we got a phone call telling us to go home because a huge storm was coming in. So that's what we did, and I ended up making a way nummy home made lasagna. (And ate some turtles) :D
Friday, we were inviting people to the Ward Christmas party that was happening the NeXT day. Sadly no one was home, so we shoved the flyers in their mailboxes because that's what good missionaries do! ;) But after that we went to the office to pick up some Things for the district and for Elder Gudnason because his Family dropped off some presents. Then we stopped by some people up in Holte, where we found out that a referral moved, and that a less active is decently interested in the church. So that was a good night.
Saturday, we try finding in the morning, then we go eat some Ice cream at IKEA for Sister Pearson's birthday, then we go to the Christmas party. It was a lot of fun and David Barrett was there, which made it even better. David pretty much already is a member, especially because he hasn't been smoking since last Monday!!! I'm way pumped for that! So we sang and heard a Christmas story, then ate some delicious flæskesteg sandwhiches. After that we went out carolling with the other missionaries, which was fun as always.
Sunday, we had a good day at church. Talked to David there, met some other people. Sang in Choir. During sacrament meeting I had to translate for a Group of girls from the phillipines. I never realized how hard that is until now. So that was exciting. After church we had a missionary meeting in the Ward, then we went out caroling Again to an old folks home to 2 less actives there. It was a lot of fun to see them, and give a Little bit of Christmas cheer away. :)
Thanks for everything that you all do. Thank you for the prayers and emails.
Ældste Swan
