Bring It

Hello Friends and Family!! :) I hope you've all had a fantastic week!

Our week started off with a UFO sighting!! Just kidding, it's really a Water Tower out in the middle of sheep grazing fields! But it was still really exciting!! hahaha

​The week hasn't been the most exciting in terms of the Work progressing to the people here in Vejle. It's been frustratingly slow with all the people cancelling, dropping, or burning us! But after a slow two weeks, we're ready to show all these people what they're missing!
Sister Woster and I are ready for whatever the World throws at us, because we've had it all! A naked man answered the door, a drunk man gave us hugs after crying all over us **(it's actually a really great story, stay tuned), we were followed by a cat, our landlord asked us to inform him when we hear our neighbor Upstairs, and we've just had a great time getting to know our companionship :) 2 weeks Down, at least 4 more to go :)

We had a really great experience with that man I talked about earlier - his name is Justice, and he walked onto our bus totally drunk, jamming out to some tribal music. He began telling us what was going on in his life, and absolutely loved the fact that we were Americans. After a while of chatting, he was interested in hearing about why we're out here in Denmark :) We taught him the first lesson about Joseph Smith and the Restoration, and he just kept asking us question after question. We're not sure how much he was really taking in while he was drunk, but he gave us a heartfelt thanks, and shed tears after we prayed with him. He called us a few minutes later, and got the address for the church Building in the city he would be in that sunday :) we're not sure if he ever showed up, but we hope to see him Again in a few days when we're up in his area :)

With as slow as the Work has been here in Vejle these past few weeks, I absolutely love this scripture I found the other day while I was studying.
Galatians 6:9 reads, ''Let us not be weary in well doingæ for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.''
Sister Woster and I have both confessed that this has been the slowest, most physically and mentally draining few weeks we have ever experienced on our missions. We are physically sore and exhausted, as well as mentally drained. We're trying to figure out how we can help fix this fall back we've both been experiencing, and as a result, we've had absolutely wonderful experiences getting to know each other and learning how our companionship Works :) I know that we are placed in companionships by inspiration, and taht we can always learn something new from every person we come in contact with :)

This week is already looking brighter, as the days get longer and warmer :)

Thank you all for your encouraging Words and your prayers :) We have felt them!! I love you all, and wish you the best this week :)

Vi snakkes!!
