This week has been pretty good. Nothing really more has happened! The weather this week has been great! It's getting much warmer! We're getting into the upper 70s, so that's a postive! But, the humidity has been pretty brutal! But I will take that over the Wind, rain and Cold weather! The weather here is definitely the best for a missionary though!

I will have to say one thing, the song in our church Hymns, "Master, the Tempest is Raging," is by far the best, but even better in Danish. We sang it in church on Sunday and it was awesome. Our church Building has an organ but with pipes along the back wall so all the songs sound legit. Anyways that's random but that's one thing I found out that I loved this week haha.

My companion and I have been working with Skævinge, Frederiksværk, Vibehus and Fredensborg this week. We didn't get too many potentials with the amount of finding time we put in. We had one good potential in Frederiksværk and one in Vibehus this week, so we should be going over there this coming week. We're continuing to Work with Deepak, and we should get him set with a baptismal date this week. He said that the fact he's Hindu is holding him back, and he'd be breaking his Family tradition. But he said he'd pray on it and report back to us on Tuesday when he meets. I'm sure that he will have a positive answer. He knows the church is true and he's already seen how the gospel has blessed his life. He comes to church about every week and loves it. He's really positive. That's something we're looking forward to this week.

A funny story this week - My companion and I bought American Pancake mix last week. Keep in mind it's CRAZY expensive over here, and syrup is even more expensive. We were stoked and got two boxes that makes 30 pancakes. (15 each). On Saturday we had the bright idea to whip both of those bad boys up. Needless to say, we had 11 thick American pancakes each. It was terrible. We felt so sick. We were basically useless the rest of the day haha we will never do that Again that's for sure. 

Anyways, I hope everyone has a good week! I miss you all! Denmark is fantastic! People are great and the gospel here is great even though it's the size of a spec on a Little flower, like "Horton hears a who!" But the most important thing is that it's here. And that those few know that there's a God out there who hears them. And an Atonement that's infinite. And that they'll be with their families for time and all eternity. And that they have the Holy Ghost, a source where we can always find Peace and happiness in a place of constant get-up-and-go and temptation. No matter how big the gospel is, it exists. And that's all that matters! That's my Little message!

I love you all!
