Hey! Another P-day! This week was pretty good! I spentthrough in Copenhagen! I really LOVE Copenhagen. It's so fun there. It's so beautiful and stuff. I loved it. I got a picture with THE Kristus statue. That a lot of people have in their homes. I'll attach a picture of that and the church it's in! :)
Other than that, well, not too much really happened. It's already Daylight Earnings or whatever so we got 9 hours of sleep! I was super happy about that. But I'm not too happy about darkness at ..... I'll get used to it though!!
This week, I read a little bit more in 1 Nephi 17 and really focused on soaking up that chapter. It's gotta be one of my favorite chapters in the Book of Mormon. Nephi was commanded to build a ship, but he'd never built one before. He was to build it after the way God would show him. Of course, Laman and Lamuel made fun of him and tried killing him. Yeah, not any fun. Anyways, in verse 50-51, it reads, "50 And I said unto them: If God had commanded me to do all things I could do them. If he should command me that I should say unto this water, be thou earth, it should be earth; and if I should say it, it would be done. 51 And now, if the Lord has such great power, and has wrought so many miracles among the children of men, how is it that he cannot instruct me, that I should build a ship?" It was a good one to read, especially because of it's truthfullness. The Lord commands us to do a bunch of things, like follow the Word of Wisdom, serve a mission, etc. We may not know how it could be possible, but He will prepare a way. This could also be related to our trials and struggles. He always prepares the way for us and instructs us if we are humble enough to listen to him and follow his counsel. It takes some humbling, trust me, but He will ALWAYS help us if we just do what he asks. I promise that! I've seen it!
Anyways, I love you all and miss each and every one of you! :)
