So the fælles spisning he writes about is translated as "common dining" but I believe it is an "open house" after church where members stay and chat/hang out and eat.  Sounds like he is happy and well.  He makes me smile.  Love you all!  Thanks for loving and supporting this kiddo!  Crysi PS  He loves letters.......did I already say that? :)

I'm spoiled so bad here! The members treated us like kings this week. I don't think I have ever eaten as much as I ate this week! There are only 2 couples in our branch, and there rest are just single ladies, and so we have pretty much become their children I think. We baked all the members cookies on preparation day to say thanks for all they did with getting our apartment all fixed up, and when we gave them to the members they just gave us buckets of food in return haha. Holy cow! It was all so good! We have been running like crazy every morning so that we don't get too fat from it all. But I can't complain, it's pretty great! Denmark is the best.
So we had our first investigator in church yesterday! We were pretty stoked about that! Last Monday we were walking around on the gågade after emailing and we ran into this guy, Stephen, who had been baptized in Russia about a year ago and he had just moved to Silkeborg, so we set up a time to meet with him so we could tell him about where the church was and what he needed to do with his membership record and things. So on Thursday we went and met with him when his roommate, Frederick, came down while we were talking and was like "Hey are you the latter day saints?" And then he explained how he had a bunch of LDS friends back in Ghana and that he wanted to start coming to church with us!! Crazy right?! So yesterday we had the members pick them up and take them to church! And man were the members excited about that!  Holy Cow. It was a madhouse. Stephen and Fredrick got attacked! Everyone was doing everything they could to talk to them and introduce themselves, which was really funny because Frederick and Stephen are both from Ghana so they don't speak a lick of danish... so the members would try and communicate in their English and it was just funny to watch. Haha and I think that Fredrick got invited to be baptized like 20 times by all the members, but he said yes every time so I guess that is a pretty good sign! It was the perfect day for them to come to church too. We had fælles spisning after church and so Fredrick and Stephen were able to talk to everyone in the branch and have fun and I think that they started to feel really comfortable, which is exactly what you want to see happen when you bring people to church. So we are really proud of our branch right now! Frederick is super solid and really fun, so we couldn't be happier about that! So that is the highlight of this week for sure. Other than that it was just a lot of knocking and trying to find people to teach! So not too bad of a week!
Hope all is going good at home and that everyone had a great summer! Good luck with the start of school! And everyone make sure to tell my mom happy birthday on the 23rd! I love you all! Have a fantastisk week!
Don't miss em!
