God Jul! (Danish for Good Christmas)

This week started out with several miracles which came in the form of 4 new baptismal dates. We found a really cool family recently, actually two! One isn't preparing for baptism yet, but the son, Wesley, is best friends with Bishop Price's son, John. We met the mother, Pearly on the street and made the connection later in the teaching process. John just turned 16 last week and has already been out teaching with us to his friend. The father of the family seems a bit apprehensive, so pray for him, William. The other family is a South African mom with a few kids and her English boyfriend. They are preparing to get baptized on January 3rd. Pray that they'll find ways to live the commandments. We have one other baptismal date right now (Paola and Shantal dropped :( ) who is trying to quit smoking. His name is Zack and he's from Nigeria. Like always we are teaching many other people right now, but these are our focus right now.

Things are going great with the ward. The new ward mission leader, Brother Knight, is amazing. He is really making things happen and has a great vision of what the ward can do. Since he just got released from the stake Presidency, he and is wife are just returning to regular attendance at their home ward. Sister Knight has made a new dinner list for us and we have quite a few members we will be going to soon. I am looking forward to that so I can get more integrated into the ward.

I do know Elder Armstrong! haha I'll try to send a picture of us together. He was My Zone Leader when I was in Portsmouth. He was an amazing missionary, I look up to him. It’s pretty cool that his uncle is in our ward. If you talk to his family, pass on to him that I said hello.

The only other thingI can think of to share is that I went on exchange this week to Aldershot. I worked with Elder Christensen's 'boy' Elder Obike. He is from Scottland. It was a really cool exchange.

I hope all the Christmas preparations are going well. I love you all and look forward to talking to you!
