Bunch of Burtons
We found ourselves walking home the other day with a bag full of tobacco and pipes... We visited Mitch and were walking somewhere with him when he mentioned, "I've been thinking about baptism. I can't smoke or drink coffee if I get baptized can I?", "No, Mitch, you cant". He then set up an appointment with us for the next morning so that we could go back, and he gave us all of his smoking stuff. The coffee comes next. He is super motivated right now though for his baptismal date. He's studying daily and is doing everything he can to stop his addictions.
I believe last week I mentioned our plan to begin cleaning the streets of Horsens. We spent a couple hours last Tuesday walking down one street and filled 20 garbage bags. Much more than we expected. We're going to try and change it up somehow next time so that we can talk to more people while serving. A lot of people saw us out of their car windows, but not many were walking on the sidewalks, it's been pretty rainy this last week.
