"It is impossible for us to fail when we do our best when we are on the Lord’s errand."
—M. Russell Ballard

I don't know if anyone has seen it yet, but the church has made an addition to Family Search. It looks like they bought a third party company called Puzzile that allows you to be able to track your family even easier. One thing that was cool was you can go back to one of your ancestors and see all of their decendence, allowing you to be able to see all of your cusins and recent relatives.

A few weeks ago on splits we were knocking doors and this lady said she was busy, but said we could try stopping by again. We stopped by twice sence then and both times the same woman answered but said she was busy, and sugested stopping by before 18.00 (6:00 pm). We stoped by again Saturday morning, her husband answered and let us in. We then taught a short lesson on the Restoration. It went great! Per the dad, spent most of the lesson keeping the two kids out of trouble, but the mom Maryanne was really interested. She said she liked everything we said, she is from Brazil and was raised Catholic, but she doesnt agree with all the Catholic beliefs. We set up another lesson and she seems really excited to read the Book of Mormon. Elder Hinrichs and I came out of the lesson with smiles spread across our faces. We're teaching a family!

Highlight of the week! Michelle is getting baptised! Yesterday after church she came to us and said that durring sacrament she had been praying about a date. She felt good about March but didnt think it was specific enough so she chose the 15th and felt it was right. She is definatly ready. Elder Hinrichs and I have hardly done anything to help, she has been prepared for a while for this. "The feild is white all ready to harvest." And we are seeing the effects, in the mission there are currently 28 people with a baptisimal date for this year, and four have been baptised.

Bunch of Burtons!

So we found out we have been using fabric softener instead of soap to wash our clothes for the last few months. Elder Hinrichs has been using it for the last five months that he has been in Odense. The Senior Couple came over this week for apartment checks and showed us that when you shake the bottle it doesn't create soap suds, then Elder Hinrichs looked up a word in the dictionary that he thought was rinse/wash and turned out to be fabric softener. We have normal soap now so I guess our laundry is going to actually get clean now. Although it doesn't smell like lavender anymore.

Its been sunny the last two days! Yesterday when we came out of the Apartment it was blinding. Our eyes have been so use to a sky without sun for the last few weeks that having the sun out hurt to even look at the road, the roads here seem to be really reflective. It was so nice though. We were trying to soak up as much of it as we could. Todays been a Little colder but the sun is still out so the Cold isnt noticed.

Sorry if random Words are capitalised I think something is wrong with this key board.

I  finnished reading my seccond time through the Book of Mormon this week. I have come to love the Book of Mormon, every time I hold it I feel the truth of it radiate out. I plan on having a Book of Mormon in every room of my house once I get my own. The book inspires me and gives me a view of what it is that God wants me to be doing. I've started reading the D&C and I've been enjoying it a lot. Its really easy to swap out the names for whoever the revelations are for and to put your own name in its place. As you read you learn more in reference to your own life.
