February 1, 2016 - Breakthroughs on Breakthroughs

What a week! This week was bombtastic for reals. We had some huge progress, more forward movement workwise than we've had in the past many weeks put together! When it rains it pours ya know. Ældste Bishopp and I caught ourselves going through the motions last week, just kind of grinding so we decided to up our focus, the catalyst being a first appointment we had set up for last Thursday with 2 smart young, bible believing Danes.

We knew we would have to be sharp with these guys so through the week we just really tried to stay focused. We walked into the appointment just chatting friendly with them and sat down. They started making jokes about a time they'd had Jehovah's Witnesses over but that they had "won" or whatever. So at this point we were on high alert, ready if they wanted to take this to some sort of Bible bash thing but luckily if ye are prepared ye shall not fear. For an hour straight we answered some really tricky questions and explained clearly what we believe using the Bible. It was awesome and by the end we were all good friends and had agreed without any argument that really the only way to know if what we said was all true or not was through the Holy Ghost. It was a miracle, we covered so many concerns/random points and were able to bring it all back to simple truth.

The week kept getting better from there and led to Sunday where we had tons of responsibilities. Sunday we taught both guest class during the 2nd hour and the 5th Sunday combined class. Lots of us talking that Sunday haha. A member that gave a talk even quoted Ældste Vance and I from our artikle.  That was a new experience for me haha. Later that day I get a call from a less active guy who says we need to come out and visit him and his mom. So fast forward a few hours and we're at the kitchen table with these 2 Romanians (specifically from Transylvania, awesome) speaking Danish, trying to help calm the situation of the son forcefully telling his Mom that she needed to be baptized. It was the first time we had ever met with them haha and it basically went he tells his mom she needs to be baptized, her saying that he can't just force her into it, and then both of them looking at us while we tried to calm things down and teach about what baptism is. It was a unique experience to say the least! They're really great people :)

The house is going to look way different by the time I'm home wow! Mom you just sound like you're having a fun time at work! Cole knows he can write Sam and me about any problems right? That's kind of what we do for a living now, try to help with stuff!

Anyways I love you guys! I'm loving it here in Denmark! It wasn't even cold this week :)

Med Kærlig Hilsen
Ældste McBride
