Hey everyone! Crazy busy week, we had apointments jumping at us from every direction, thrown in with trying to get packed for transfers. It was a great way to finnish off my time in the area. Actually Im not finnished with Odense yet, Long is getting baptised on June 1st and he asked me to baptise him, so I'll be back down there in five weeks. Im so glad I had the oportunity to serve in Odense, to have met the people I did. The people and their area will always be some of my best memories.

Elder Horrochs... my new companion. About 6ft 8in ish, I don't know exactly, but he's a pretty big guy. Way cool though, when he first got to Frederikshavn almost five months ago there were no investigators at all and the work was realy slow. Now... there are multiple baptisimal dates and the branch is slowly getting more involved with the work. He's a hard worker and Im sure I'll be able to learn a lot from him.

We just got transfer calls! I'll be leaving Odense and going up to Frederikshavn the most northern area in the mission, up next to Skagen which will be in my area. Transfers are next Monday so I still have a week to finish up in Odense. This is my first area move, it'll be interesting. 

Theres a new missionary from Hurricane, Utah who came a transfer or two ago. We started talking at the zone training and figured out we both wrestled, were the same weight class the same year, and were both at the same tournament. So we probably have wrestled each other before. He did look familiar. Small world.

Michelle's a member! She got up in sacrament meeting on sunday and gave her testimony. She told about how nervous she was all the way up to the baptism and once the meeting began a calm came over her and she knew what she was doing was right. Everything went smoothly, we kept having all these little things pop up getting us worried that something would go wrong, but in the end it all came together and became a great experience for Michelle and all those who went. 

We recently started teaching and older couple that had there names taken off the records a while ago, but they are wanting to be rebaptised and start coming back to church. They didn't come on sunday but hopefully they come next week. We have a lesson with them again on Wednesday.

General Conference! So many great talks! I hope everyone was able to listen or watch. I still have to figure out how to watch the last session. Because of the time difference we watched the Saturday morning session at 6.00 Saturday night. Watched the Priesthood session Sunday morning at 11.00, Saturday afternoon session at 2.00 Sunday morning and then watched the Sunday morning session live at 6.00 Sunday evening. If we had wanted to watch the Sunday afternoon session we would have had to be up way past curfew, so I guess we'll just have to wait for it to be published in the ensign, or try and watch it at the church sometime this week.

There were a lot of talks this week on charity. From the sessions I saw I think I counted nine talks relating to love and charity. Kind of a hint that its important.
