My trainer Benny Hinrichs has published his first novel and has already sold 10 copies. If anyone is interested in a good read here's the link that he sent me....
Great day yesterday. It began with a little disappointment because Familien Pelargu wasn't going to be able to make it to church because they had some family visiting from Albania. About ten minutes though before church began we got a text from our friend Andrei from Romania saying he was on his way and would be to church a little late! We hadn't been able to meet with Andrei in about a week and a half because of his rugby practices and games, he had a big game in Odense on Saturday and didn't think he would be back in time to make it to church Sunday morning. When he got home though he told us about how he stood next to his bed thinking about how comfortable his pillow looked, He had just spent a long trip back from his game the day before and I'm sure he was exhausted, but he decided to come anyway. And he seemed to enjoy it. He was basically a member himself with how much he was involved and commented during class. The ward was great too, he was well welcomed with open arms. I was with him in the hallway at one point talking to a member when the members daughter walked passed and she leaned clear over grabbing her daughters arm and dragged her over to introduce her to Andrei, his face went bright red, not what you would expect from a huge rugby player.
