Mosiah 7:33


It's been a pretty good week! On Tuesday, Denmark had their longest day of the year festival, so we took advantage of that to contact people. We found some Mormons from America who embraced us along the Castle, so that was pretty great! We also found a couple potentials, so that was pretty successful.

We did some service for a member refferal on Tuesday as well, and they seemed pretty interested in the gospel, so that was a positive! They were a younger couple! We shared with them a little restoration lesson and answered their questions, and they were super fascinated. They invited us back for a barbeque after they come home from their vacation! We're excited for that, and of course to Work with them! :)

The rest of this week went by pretty slow. We just stopped by some potentials and had no success with that unfortunately. We have been doing a lot of door knocking in Hillerød, but we haven't received much from that either! But that's totally okay because it's all part of the journey! 

We did have a lesson with Henriette. We had a lesson on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It went pretty well! We didn't have too much time for it so we couldn't go as in depth as we could have liked. But we have an appointment this week, so we should have a baptismal date after this week! We're hoping and praying for it! She's pretty awesome and she loves the gospel and the Peace it brings her. It makes her want to change her habits because she knows that's what God wants for her. She's just so busy and our NeXT step is to get her to come to church. It's easier said than done :) but she is willing to come now that it's summer and life is a bit less challeging!

The school kids finished school this week, and that Means kids graduated too! The tradition here is that they Wear their graduation caps, and get into big ole army trucks that blast music. They just scream and drink. It's actually pretty funny! They Wear those caps like everyday in the summer...that's the funniest part of it! But my companion and I got to break it down to some music so that was also pretty fun. It's not breaking rules if you're surrounded by it ;). We had a good time with it haha but we didn't let it affect our Work, which is the important part!

Anyways, if you haven't read Mosiah 7:33, it says "But if ye will turn to the Lord with full purpose of heart, and put your trust in him, and serve him with all diligence of mind, if ye do this, he will, according to his own will and pleasure, deliver you out of bondage." No matter what you're struggling with, this is a promise that God gives to us. We should turn to Him and trust Him that he'll take care of it. And He says he will free us from our bondage or challenges if we do that. That's a promise and I know it Works! :) 

I hope you all have a great week and I love and miss you alll!! :)
