S9:E3 "Pollen knee, bolemic missionary"

Hello everyone, I hope that you all are doing dandy! I sure am. Nothing too out of the ordinary has happened with me. Just kinda... still missionarying.

Oh, starting off, right after emailing last monday, some guy stopped us and talked to us for like 20 minutes about how everything leads back to aliens and the flat skulls. He also talked about royal blood and things like that. It was pretty intense. Good ol' people like that. But nothing else too special happened that day, we just bought a whole ton of asian goodies from an asian import store.

Tuesday was fun, we played tennis, then had a lesson with Ashlee, the funniest british man in the world. We just had a nice discussion about taking that leap of faith, and finding confidence through obedience. But after that, we had a nice lesson with a guy named Leo. He is a nature lover, hippy for lack of better terms. He mainly just believes in intuition and karma and things like that. But we had a way good discussion about who God is and why he is there. He is a way smart goober. Right after that appointment, we went and ate dinner with Simon and Lise Lotte, my two friends. It was way good. They tried to kill us though, with hot sauce. I was crying for 5 minutes and it instantly gave me the hiccups. Definitely the hottest thing I've ever eaten. But we also had a good lesson about Family home evening and trying it out for them. :)

We helped out Maria, our good member friend move some things, then we ate lunch with her. I was also on splits again with Elder Christensen, the boy I trained. It was fun. Then we had a good lesson with a guy named Bull tut, he's from Africa. We talked about church and the blessings that comes from coming. All in all it was a good day. 

Thursday was thursday. We had district meeting, learned about setting goals. Then we ate some koldskål with a member, then we tried stopping by someone, but the bus drove right past us so we couldn't make it up there. But we finished off the night with an appointment with a nice older lady who is a member. We talked about how there is always a plan for us, and we shared the story in Ether 6:4-6,12. We just talked about how faith ties into these plans. 

Friday we got burned... darn it. But we finished off the day by having an appointment with Ashlee and a member. Ashlee wrote a song that was inspired by me. :) I will send it to you all when I get it. But that went very well. We talked about our life here on earth and that God sees the bigger picture. Kinda like the lesson from the day before. (2 Nephi 2:6-8,25)

Soccer on the weekend, like always it was way fun. Then we had a lesson with Thomas, our good friend that won't do anything. So we talked about what grace is, and tried to explain how we are saved by grace but still need to do something with our faith... but he still doesn't see it. But we believe! It'll come! Then we had another appointment with Maria, which was fun as always. 

Moving on to church, which was good. :P Nothing too special. Then we taught Ashlee again, he said that he wants to get baptized in the next 4 weeks. :D I'm way excited for him. But after that we tried stopping by someone, with no luck. 

Good week everyone. Keep the faith, thanks for the prayers! LOVES!
