So. Another few weeks down. Time just cruises right along.
Its been one of the harder weeks to get through, but not a bad one... if that makes sense? Tough, but do-able.
We've got two investigators right now who are really great guys. Both young danes, curious about the church, but from very different angles. One is a friend of a member over in Roskilde, and is really a cool guy. He's very interested in finding out who he really is, and how to fulfill his potential in life, but still very down to earth. We've had some very thought-provoking conversations, having to do with danish philosophers and religion and all kinds of deep stuff. But its pretty inspiring. Its made me think alot about my goals in life and what I want to accomplish. We should be playing basketball with him sometime next week too, so thats a plus. haha Who says missionary work can't be fun.
The other is very interested in the history of the church, the restoration, and salt lake city. He's a cool kid. Hopefully he'll come to CUV tonight. Its the Young-Adult Center in copenhagen, i'm not sure if i've talked about it already, but it's such a huge help in missionary work. The youth here are a strong example to me. They've got fire in their testimonies that even denmark cant put out.
We worked hard this week. Lots of long hours talking to lots of people. Had some interesting conversations... Muslims like to argue, and so did a few danes who believe in the trinity. I was condemned to hell by random poeple on the street on various occasions this week because of my beliefs, so that was also interesting. Most of the time because they thought we were the FLDS polygamists, so i forgive them. haha A big problem in our work is Warren Jeffs. A ton of people think that he is our prophet and that we're wackos that marry 10 year old girls with old men. Its pretty frustrating. You can usually tell, because as soon as the book of mormon is mentioned in a conversation, their eyes get all big and they walk away muttering things about mormons, polygamy, and cults. Its really depressing sometimes, but every now and then we get the chance to explain. Every now and then.
The weather's really taking a turn for the better. Its quite pleasant to be outside most of the time. A couple more weeks and we'll be warm for good. Looking forward to it.
Hope all is well with ya'll! Write me! And if you do, don't use the Søndergade address in Frederikshavn. its old. Use the Borups Allé address in Frederiksberg, thats where i live now.
I må ha' en god uge!
