Rutschebanen! {Roller Coaster}

Kære venner!

I hope everyone had a good week! This week has been dumping rain, and unfortunately my umbrella broke back in the dreary winter and I left my rain jacket at Zone Training this week, so it's been a wet week! I did find an umbrella laying around the apartment, so that's been a lifesaver for now.. But my week started off good!

Some people in the district went to Tivoli! Everyone in the district was invited, but they assumed it be packed and too expensive... To their surprise it was actually relatively empty and discounted because the senior couples had season passes! Their loss. That place was really cool! I officially rode the world's oldest, non renovated roller coaster in the world! It's called Rutschebanen! Pretty fun stuff. It was nice to be in Tivoli. A lot of cool, fun little rides. It's an OLD amusement park but it's pretty classy. It's a must-see for sure! I got a few pics of it!

I has the opportunity to go on splits to Amager this week! Amager is South Copenhagen where the airport is. It was pretty fun. We contacted around parks and did some service for a member. It was pretty fun. The rain held off too, so that was a big plus.

This week, we found a super positive investigator. It may seem like a normal account for any other mission, but here, this happens once in a blue moon. Anyways, we were led to knock another pretty wealthy neighborhood, and we knocked on several doors but no one was really interested or gave us the time of day. Then we knocked on this one door and no one came to the door. We stood there for like 2 minutes and we kinda just felt like we should stay there. So we stood there for a few more minutes and I texted some people, then an older lady walks up and out of nowhere and asked who we were. We explained we're out talking about the purpose of life and what not. Eventually it turned into a 30 minute discussion about life after death and truths from God. We gave her a Book of  Mormon, invited her to read it and pray, and she is extremely eager to find out if what we were saying really was true. Some questions, promised blessings and the Spirit moved her to accept that invitation, but she even recognized as she said, "a special spirit about us." She even mentioned that we are two men from God. It was quite weird and miraculous, but incredible just to see one person who was truly open and humble enough to recognize what God truly wants her to do. It was pretty cool!

Anyways, I love and miss you all! Have a great week!

Med Kærlig Hilsen,
