Aug. 21, 2011


Hey! How are you doing this fine day? I'm going to get to telling you about my week right away, because it's been a really good and exciting week! First of all let me tell you about the update with Annie! So, we've been over there 2 more times this week and both the appointments were way good. We gave her a baptismal calender and she said that she is still excited about being baptized on the first of October. This last appointment we had, we brought the Bowlers with us. they are an older couple missionary pair, and we invited them so Annie would have someone she's knows when she went to church for the first time, because we were in Herning on Sunday. Anyway, she became great friends with them. She told us at one point in the lesson that she has committed to baptism and she is not going to back out. She also told us that we always bring such a good spirit with us and that is why she loves meeting with us. Well yesterday was her first day in church... And she absolutely loved it! She already got to know the members and invited some of them home to her place after church. She's excited to keep coming to church and the ward is happy to have her. Oh yeah, she had a concern about tithing, but we explained it to her and she said that it wouldn't be a problem at all. So she will get baptized for sure, there is a good chance that it is before October 1st.
Here is another little miracle that happened in Silkeborg yesterday. A guy named Bruno just walked in and is waaay interested in the church! He is also from Africa, which helped Annie feel more comfortable. And he has a wife and 3 kids. He speaks French which is perfect because Omar is from Canada and speaks French! It seems like everything is working out just perfectly!
Things are also picking up in Herning. This week we had the zone leaders over on splits and we found 3 new investigators. 2 of them seem pretty positive. Mia said that she wants to come with us to teach them, because they are around her same age. And then in Church we had a lot of people there. Michael Kjær, the guy whose roof we helped fix, and his family came and enjoyed it, and our investigator, Gene showed up as well. We had a total of 3 investigators in church, and 2 less actives.
So that is the update with the missionary work. Here are some of the other things we have done this week. I hit my 21 month mark for one! 3 more to go.
There is a member named Thomas, who noticed we didn't have helmets, so he bought us some helmets. Thing is, he got us girl helmets. A pink one, and a light blue one with flowers. What the heck?
Oh here is something cool we did. We caught a fly, tied it to a leash, named it Fredrik, and kept it as our pet for a day. Haha. How you ask? Well you catch a fly in a cup, slide a paper under, and put it in the freezer for 5-7 minutes. The fly freezes and looks like it's dead. Then get a long hair and tie a slip knot and slide it over one of the fly's legs and tighten it. Put the fly on you hand, or somewhere warm and it will slowly thaw out and come back to life and even start flying around on its little leash. It's a pretty cool trick. Fredrik ended up escaping, so we crushed him with a magazine.
Yesterday after church we went over to Mia's place for lunch, and she also asked for a Priesthood blessing, so I got another opportunity to give a blessing in Danish. That was cool.
I think that is about all that has happened with me. I think that today is finally the day that we will be able to play soccer golf. the weather is finally cooperating!
I'm glad that you have had a good week and that wedding planning is going well, although you've had some annoying and stressful days I'm sure. It's so crazy that they are getting married on Saturday! That came up so fast! I can't believe I'm gonna have a new sister in 5 days! It sounds like you have been having a ton of fun with her mom and family. They sound pretty fun.
I have one picture. Well, I did. But the computer is being dumb and not letting me open it. So I guess that will have to wait.
Hope you have an amazing week!! See ya very soon! :D Bye!!

Love Elder Tyler Lee
