Wa de goin?

I learned Pidgeon English this week. From our investigator from Ghana. His name is Fred. Haha Elder Swan and I have been practicing and he teaches us a little more each time we go over. He taught us how to hold a basic little conversation, but hopefully we will be able to get it to a point where we could talk to him in it! We'll see. He loves teaching us Pidgeon and has a ton of fun. And we love teaching the gospel, and have a ton of fun!  He's probably one of the funnest people that I have met with here. He's super happy and all the meetings are upbeat and fun, but at the same time really focussed on the gospel. A great combo.

I don't have a ton to write about this week... It was a great week, had lots of fun, but just kinda the norm of running around and trying to get a hold of people. We did contact of a good number of them, so that was good. 

Oh, We did go on an adventure!

​A journey through the jungle... Not really. We just went to a botanical garden place with a jungle inside on preparation day haha :) 

Hope all is going well with everyone! Have a great week! Don't miss em at the pheasant hunt. Wish I could be there with you all! Send pics :) I love you and miss you!

So I start all of my journal entries off with a quote of the day. It has been really fun and helps me remember all the funny moments that happen throughout the different days. I thought I would start this email off with one from this week. Thursday's was: 'Oh good, I thought you were a little girl!'. It was said by some random guy to Elder Brady (who is this huge football player guy). Elder Brady tried some licorice ice cream out on the gågade (super public place) and didn't like it, so he made a horrible face. This guy saw that face and went up to him and asked  'What? You don't like it?' Elder Brady tried to be nice and covered his face and said he did like it. Then the guy said that, "Oh good, I thought you were a little girl!" right to his face! haha. We all just about died of laughter. I thought it would be a good story to include because that was the story of the week. We laughed a ton.

We also made a ton of people smile with this:)  

​We had baught pumpkins to carve and were walking back to the apartment, and you should have seen all the looks we were getting haha. :) I'm sure we made like 30 people's days, we got so many smiles. It was pretty funny. 

Ældste Swan and I taught Primary yesterday :) Man, I love primary kids. It was so funny. It was hard to teach because every answer that we would get would just make us die of laughter. Like we asked this one girl: 'Why do you love your family?' and she said,  'Well, because if I don't then they will get offended!' I dont know if we can request callings (Bishop Prater...) but I'm sold. It was a blast. 

It was a fun week. Went by crazy fast. I think that is just going to be the story of the rest of my mission but I'm not complaing about it! It's just a great time. Hope it is going well for all of you back home too! I love you and miss you!

So to explain the Denmark people think it's too personal when someone walks up and starts throwing religion at them.  So Conner and his old companion noticed that if they just go out and start throwing a football people approach them to start a conversation.  Pretty smart I must say!  I'm sure they have many ways to turn a football conversation into a missionary discussion.  Haha.  Love this kiddo and am so excited he was able to make it back for his baptism!  Originally Conner scheduled the baptism for September 27th and so he came home knowing he would miss it.  But Sander had to postpone it, and gratefully Conner was back in time and President Sederholm allowed him to go to the baptism.  Tender mercies galore!  Thanks again to all of you for being part of this miracle!  Crysi

Sander got baptized! 

​(If you remember that one time where an investigator walked into the church while we were emailing, this was him!) I got to go back for it too! It was awesome :) He was super excited. It was a great little baptismal meeting. His whole family came as well, and were really supportive of him. I'm super jealous of the Elders in Slagelse right now because his whole family is probably going to start coming to church as well. I got to ride over to Slagelse with Elder Earl as well, so that was really fun to catch up and talk with him as we rode the train over to Slagelse. That ward is great, It was a blast being back, even if it was just for a little bit. So that was the highlight of the week for sure! 

Århus is great! I like it a lot. Being in a four man apartment is also a blast. I'm still getting to know the area, but it is coming. We ride lots of busses and walk a lot here. Our area is pretty big, has a lot of people in it for just 2 missionaries. And we have the University :) So we meet with some younger people and most of the people that we talk to on the street are younger as well. haha We were out throwing the football the other day and this kid came up and asked in perfect danish if he could throw it. We gave him the ball, and then watched with open mouths as he threw a perfect spiral like 40 yards down to me. Danes can't do that! Usually it looks like a duck and goes about 20 feet. Turns out he wasn't really a Dane haha :) His dad was American so he had grown up there. We talked to him for a while though and set up a football game against him and his friends. It will be a fun game haha :) So Århus is going pretty well. 

Hope everyone had a good week! If you didn't get the chance to see my sister's homecoming pictures, you should ask my mom to send you them. She looked great! (haha sorry to embarrass you Sarah :) But you did!) I love you and miss you all! Ha' det godt!
