Sorry, I kinda ran out of time for a big email this week. It was a way good week though! A ton happened and it was a blast! Time is going so fast right now. We are getting way busy, like literally every second of our next week with the exception of like 2 hours on Wednesday and Friday is planned. The work is clicking with me and Elder Earl and we have our sights set pretty high! 

But I thought I would at least send some pictures from the week :) 

Rootbeer floats to celebrate a new investigator. with these sweet light up cups that we got from a new convert :) 

Building a wall at service with a crazy less active.  She told us to make the wall artsy, make it a peice of art (like I said, she is a little crazy, we just do what she says, even if it makes no sense. She has a vision of what she wants with her yard!) So this is what we came up with...

Our entertainment at the hospital as we waited... and waited... and waited... 

Oh, and see that old lady in the background? We became good friends with her on the next hospital visit :) She sat by us at one of the tables. Right when things were going well and we thought we were friends she said, "You know, don't you think that you should be sitting somewhere else? People who are sick might want those seats that you have. Then she totally told us off. We were sad. So we moved. And then she took our seats!!! We were kinda sad about that cuz we thought we were friends. Oh well. It was funny. 

So yeah :) It was a good week! And I  can't complain. All is well! Thanks for all the prayers and support! I really appreciate it :) You are all the best! I love you and miss you!

So last week I promised some info on my new comp. Here we are: 

We got to wear these sweet painting suits so we didn't get paint on our clothes at service on Wednesday. It is going to be a fun companionship. We have a ton in common... Like guess where his mom comes from, Canada! And guess where his dad comes from! Reno, NV! crazy right? We thought that one was nuts. He is from South Jordan and also went to BYU for a little bit before his mission. We work pretty much the same and have our sights set high and it is going to be a way fun transfer! 

We had a good week! For some reason I am hitting a  big mental block though and can't think of a thing we did... I know that it was a good week though! We introduced Elder Earl to members and investigators and had some good lessons and some good times and all went well. Haha We went to a Danish Church baptismal party! for one of our investigators daughters. It turned out way good! our investigator, martin, had some family members that had run into the church before and they were all going to be at that party, so when we got the invite we took him up on it! And it turned out way good! We ended up having some good conversations with people about the church and have a couple potential people that we can visit now from it! And on top of that it helped out a ton with our relationship with Martin and his wife, who we hadn't met too much, and they invited us over again tomorrow! So that was way fun. and now I can say I went to another church's baptismal party :) 

All is going well. I am really looking forward to this transfer. It is going to be a good one. Thanks for all the prayers and everything! You are all the best :) Love you and miss you! have a great week!

Subject: I got a new comp and ate lots of ice cream :)


How is it going with everyone? Guess what! I got a new companion! His name is Æ. Earl! I don't know too much about him yet, so I'll have to get back to you with all that, but so far he is looking  fun! We had a bit of a crazy transfer this morning but all is well and we are back in Slagelse :) It should be a great transfer. 

So I noticed on the email that my mom sent out last week to everyone that one of the lines said 'F spending it in Denmark'... haha- that sounds way bad. it was supposed to say Fun. Not F. And it said fun when I sent the email home but I think my [beautiful, bright and super amazing] Mom goes through and edits all my emails (I must have bad grammar and stuff haha :))(and she is an English major, so its probably a good thing) and the un in fun must have got deleted. So that's why it said that. I promise I didn't say f spending it in denmark.

So... Ice cream in Denmark deserves a little shout out. You get it from these little candy shops that are everywhere and it is great! The soft serve is super creamy, way more yummy,cheap, has huge portions and they just make it fun! they have this stuff called guf that they put on top which is like a thicker whipped cream type stuff but its sugary and not creamy... if that makes any sense. but its way good. Here's a picture of me with my favorite combo 
And haha!  Sprinkles on the lip for the win. It has 2 scoops of like normal flavored ice cream (my fav is a licorice/rasberry sorbet combo) and then soft serve on top with guf and sprinkles. So good! We ate a lot of ice cream this week (maybe that explains the swelling...) with it being Æ. Hansens last week so I had to include something about ice cream in the e-mail haha. 

We met with the car contact guy from last week! It went so good! He was legit. He took a Book of Mormon and was actually open to learning more about the church! He was super fun to talk to and the lesson went really well so hopefully we see that happen again and get some good things going! We had a pretty good week. Found a couple new investigators and we are excited for them. The investigator side of the work here is starting to get rolling again and the less active work is still going great so this transfer is promising. We have quite a few appointments and we'll try and use my new comp to get a couple more so it should be a busy week! I can't complain :) I really love Slagelse. I'm having a great time and am excited to be here for another transfer. And hopefully I stay another one after this transfer too :) 

I hope all is going good with everyone! Thanks for all the prayers and support :) Don't listen to my mom though haha I feel good and am out working and having a blast! I just look like a balloon sometimes when I wake up :) But everything is going great and I have no complaints. Hope you all have a great week! I love you and miss you all!

Hello family and friends!  So here is Conner's latest e-mail- a little late.  He hasn't said anything in his e-mails but he has been pretty sick lately.  He is having a problem with swelling - everywhere.  So he went to a Dr. in Denmark (socialized medicine - ugh - it's slow) and his liver enzymes and hemoglobin levels are concerning.  So they have sent him to a specialist.  As of now, that's all we know.  It has been a month now that he has been sick, but he keeps working and isn't letting it stop the work, even though he is very tired most of the time.  We would appreciate any prayers in his and his Dr.'s behalves to help us figure this out soon and get him better!  We will be having another family fast after we find out more info this week, I will invite you all then! Thanks for your love and concern.  Love you all!  Crysi

Subject: America!


America is the best. We had a super fun 4th of July. Represented the states well. Here is how we arrived to zone training:
​It was a fun day. Had zone training, and then after we had a zone lunch where everyone brought their favorite American deserts and we all just pigged out on American sweets :) And the Kristiansens had us over for a 4th of Juli party later that night and they went all out. It was so good!! BBQ hamburgers, hot dogs, sausage, chips, classic 4th of Juli BBQ. We brought the football and tossed that around with them and then roasted some marshmallows :) So it was a great day! F spending it in Denmark :) Bummer we lost in the world cup though. 

I had the coolest contact of my mission this week too. It was so much fun. And it was very fitting for the week of the 4th of July! We were in a town called Sorø and all of these old, classic cars were all over town. I guess there was some sort of car show/car club get together. So as you can imagine I was in heaven :) We were walking back to our car and we walked past this beautiful blue 69 Mustang and a 69 Firebird. They were so pretty. In  good shape and just looked great and there was a group of guys standing by them talking. So you know how I am with old cars, so I couldn't resist! We went over and started talking to them and the conversation took off. I asked them a ton of questions about the cars and they opened them up and let me look inside and see the engine and all the parts and all that and it was so cool. They even fired up the Firebird so I could hear her :) I was just flying by that point. In heaven. And then the conversation shifted to the church and why we were here in Denmark. We started talking with one of the guys (the one who owned the Firebird :)) about the church and what we do as missionaries and we asked if we could come to his house and meet with him and he was excited to do that! So we got his address and are going over there on Wednesday! I'm kinda excited :) oh, and I got a pic with them :) My car bros in Denmark. 
​Ignore the beer. The guy we are meeting with is the one in the passenger seat. He is paralyzed but has a neat outlook on life and a sweet story! I'll make sure to keep you updated on how it goes with him :) 

This will be my last week with Æ. Hansen. He is going home a week from today! Crazy. It has been a fun couple of transfers. We'll find out who I'm getting as a new companion today and then next week I'll let you know who it is! Whoever it is, He'll be fun so I'm stoked. It will be a great week! Things are going really well here :) Thanks for all the prayers and fasting everyone! I really appreciate it :) I hope that you all have a great week! I love you and miss you!
