This week was alright! The weather has been pretty unfortunate for us. Just cloudy, cold, rainy. I didn't think I'd have to break out my North Face jacket that I wore in the winter in North Carolina.. Sad stuff, but it's alright! It's been good nonetheless!

Anyways, because we're still in the period of the Danish summer vacation, a lot of our investigators are gone, giving us not much to work with. Although, we have been out finding still. Because a lot of people are off on vacation, not many people are home, so we've just been really trying to focus on prayer and seeking after answers of where we should go to find the elect. We did that one day and the first door we knocked, we found another family! A mother and two older teenage daughters. The two daughters are interested in the YSA program in Copenhagen, so that will be good to get them involved. When we gave them a Book of Mormon, one of those daughters was ANXIOUS to read it. It was really cool to see. Hopefully we see some more success with that family! Other than that, to fill our time, we're out knocking on some doors! :) While doing so, I snagged a cool beach pic! I'll attach it.

I found an interesting scripture this morning that was really applicable to me. It's In Alma 26:22, It says, "Yea, he that repenteth and exerciseth faith, and bringeth forth good works, and prayeth continually without ceasing—unto such it is given to know the mysteries of God; yea, unto such it shall be given to reveal things which never have been revealed;" I've seen this week what the power of prayer does. The Lord will really whisper in our ears, in our hearts the answers to our prayers. I hope everyone uses this tool the way it's intended to be used, Look at Joseph Smith. Because he was abounding in good works, reading scriptures and exercising his faith by praying, he was able to be the Lord's tool in bringing forth a great miracle - proof that God speaks to his children today. That same miracle is available to us all, regardless of whether you're Muslim, Jewish, Mormon, you name it. The Lord does speak to us and through him, we're able to bring miracles for ourselves and others. Just pray and do what you're supposed to. It's actually quite simple and can take 5 seconds!

I love you all!
