S10:E4 "Kungfu death brownies"

Hey family,

I'm still doing well, still hanging in there. It's not too cold yet, which is way positive, hopefully that means it won't be cold for very long, instead of being a late winter. But I've been successfully countering the cold with a ton of unhealthy food. 

Ummm... this week was alright. We had a lot of plans, and most of them changed and got cancelled. Last monday was a good day though. We were able to meet with a girl named Cecilia, and we had a good chat with her about the gospel of Jesus Christ, and what it means for us to follow him. She is super sincere when it comes to investigating the church. Most of the lessons we have with her are just answering really good questions. So after having that good lesson, we went with her to a members house and ate dinner. That was fun. This was familien Ildskov, a younger family and their youngest kid who is probably like 5, is just completely hyper. So that was probably a fun introduction to the mormon household for Cecilia. 

The next day was lame. We had 2 appointments in the morning that got cancelled. Which was a lame way to start the day. Then nothing really happened. Then I got a way bad migraine that night. Not very fun. But while I was sleeping my companion made death brownies. So that was a plus of that day. 

Wednesday we had zone training. That was alright. It was weird to be there and not have to do anything. Just as a normal missionary. It was fun to see some of the friends again though. Then after we got back, we went to another appointment, and he opened the door and told us that he couldn't meet. He had a good excuse though, he was passing a kidney stone. So once again, dissappointing. But after that we met with our good friend Kim de king. So Kim de King has that name because he changed his name. He changed his name because of his love for the king, Elvis. So, he is a pretty interesting dude. But I love meeting with him, 1. because he always gives us way good hot cocoa, and 2. because he is actually a way nice and smart guy. So we have had quite a few good conversations with him this week about the sacrament and some different things. Sadly he hasn't been to church in a while, but he has a strong testimony of it. 

We also got to meet with Thomas, the guy in a wheel chair. I always love meeting with him. Just super sincere the whole time. But this time was a little different because he found someone who wanted to get visited by the missionaries. So we talked to him about that and figured out what we can do to help him. So that was fun. :) yay member missionary work. 

We taught Cecilia again as well, but the last time it was on commandments and why we have them. We also talked about the protection that comes when we read the scriptures and come to church. So that was a good lesson as well. 

Oh man, we went to an eating appointment with 2 brothers, Erik and Lee Jepsen. So much fun.So Lee is married, just a young couple, and Erik has been back from his mission for about a year. The eating appointment pretty much consisted of them showing us all the new video games and just having some super nerdy talk. It was great to have that again. It had been awhile. That was loads of fun. Then we talked about having a missionary mindset always, and being able to see oppurtunities to share the gospel. 

We also met with Charles, a kungfu master from New York. That was another fun lesson. Talked about baptism, and authority and all that fun stuff. He had been baptized 4 times already in different churches so he told us that he probably shouldn't be baptized again. But we'll see what happens with that. 

So everything is going well in Denmark. :) Love you all!
