Training and a Temple Trip: 8/1/2016Hey everyone! Hope you all are doing great:) This past week has been a pretty good one! It started off with Æ. Smith and I going to the mission home for his 30 Day-in training. He was the only elder in his group and he came with 6 sister missionaries, so there were a ton of sister missionaries haha. The training went really well though. Learned a lot (as a missionary you find yourself continually learning, even when you think you got some things figured out) and got really motivated to incorporate what I learned into my area, Holbæk.
We were able to go to the temple in Copenhagen! That was probably the highlight of my week! I love attending the temple. I wish I was able to go every week. The spirit is so strong there. Just bares testimony to me how God's true church, in it's fullness, is on the earth today. I am so thankful that I am a part of it.
After church yesterday, we had fællesspisning (like a ward lunch) Æ. Smith and I baked about 150 chocolate cookies and they were gone before we knew it! The members loved them:) Danes get the trophy for pastries but no one can beat a solid, American chocolate-chip cookie:) We had a lot of people in church and I was able to talk to a lot of different members. I love the members here in the ward I serve in. Roskilde menighed is full of kind, friendly, out going people.
I've felt pretty blessed this week. The work here in Holbæk has been on a rise. Æ. Smith and I have seen the Lord's hand working miracles to those we serve. It's sad to hear and see all the unrest in the middle east. We have a lot of rules we have to follow to while teaching the refugees, but I love every opportunity I get to share the Gospel with them from that part of the world. I truly miss those I worked with in Sønderborg. I find myself thinking of them often, I pray that everything works out for them.
