Letter From Katherine (07/08/2013)

  • The sun is shining in odense!!!!‏

    Hej Family!
    The weather has been so nice here lately! It is definitely a nice change from the rain. I haven't even had to drink hot chocolate in the mornings, so that's good.
     You're not even going to believe what hapened yesterday. It was incredible. So I was fasting that Sister Nuttall and I would get a baptisimal date. We go to church and Lan Le, introduces us to a woman and her two children. We started talking to her and getting to know her. After sacrament meeting she said she wants to be baptized, her daughter is also old enough to be baptized, so we set up an appointment for Wednesday. While that was going Down, a 15 year old boy WHO has been coming to church with his mom went up to bishop, and they set up a baptismal date for the 17 of August! What????? yeah it was incredible. There was so much happening! We also had an investigator at church named Michael. When we went to the sunday school class for investigators one of the members started talking about everything. Seriously everything. The Word of wisdom, tithing, temple recommends, etc. We have only met with michael once before he came to church so we were a bit worried. It turns out that he really enjoyed it, and if anything he is just way more interested now. So yeah sunday was busy! The power of prayer and fasting is so real.
    Also, during testimony meeting Jytte, the older lady WHO fed us dinner a while ago stood up to bear her testimony. She went to a teaching appointment with us earlier in the week and she talked about how after the teaching appointment it was the happiest she has ever felt in a very long time. She is so sweet. I think that getting the members out teaching with us is helping them become more excited about missionary work. The man that she taught with us is named peter. He told us how he used to have a drinking problem and smoking problem but now he doesn't have a problem with either. he is so prepared for the gospel, and he doesn't even know it!
    It probably sounds like i'm super busy all the time, which most days I am, but there are still some days where we bonk doors and contact people. Saturday was one of those days and It was probably one of the slowest days in my life. It was rough. No one wanted to talk to us!!! It would have been so easy to have just finished the day early, but we stayed out and kept trying to contact people. While doing so, we got a phone call from one of our investigators. He said that he saw us walking and he wanted to meet up. So we met up and were able to talk to him for a bit. We even scheduled another appointment which was huge because we have been trying so hard to Schedule an appointment with him for quite some time. That was a miracle in and of itself.
    It was fun hearing about the 4th of July festivities! Guess what? I was able to celebrate here in Denmark! Ken Hall (Dane's uncle) had a party for all of the missionaries. It was so fun! We played lots of games, talked about good ol' America, sang patriotic songs, and ate. We even had s'mores! It was a very fun day. I will send some Pictures.
    So yeah. Things are going really well here. I'm sad that i have to wait another week to see Pictures of Rudy! I hope that you all have a great week! I'm looking forward to hearing Christina's results. It sounds like youth conference is going to be fun! I love you all so so so so so much! Thank you for your prayers, I can feel them. Ha' det godt! hej hej
    Also, the language is hard. I just want to speak Danish!!!!! 
    Love Katherine
