This week was great. We were able to have a couple meetings in København which meant that we could not work four out of the seven days in our area. It’s all good. Someone has to do it.
When we were in our area we went to meet with S** and had some great chats. He missed church again this week. It seemed to be a legit excuse, but we are still working with him. He is still willing to meet, and we are being patient. Things will pick up. I know it will.
Well, we had a Halloween party at the Kristiansen’s, and it was great. As missionaries we can only dress up in so many different ways. We decided to get fake mustaches and look like Mexicans. So just imagine Jake with a thick mustache, but then put my body with all his skin color and looks. It was funny! We had some good laughs. I will try to get some of the pictures for the members.
Now, back to when I was there with Elder Ockey this week. It was great. We walked up to the man and he told us that he did not like to be visited at random times, that he would still like to be visited, but just not right now. So we made an appointment. He kept looking at me like he had seen me before. Part of me wanted to tell him, but I just let it go and we made the appointment for a week's time. Now we wait.
It was so great to have that experience because now, over a year later, I can speak the language, understood 100% of what he said, and now he is positive about the church. It was great to be there.

So, last night, the 2nd of November, almost a full month after we'd received the prompting, we invited her to be baptized on that date (Nov. 29). It was weird because at first we both felt like maybe we should suggest a different date, but then we both felt an instant confirmation that November 29 was the right day. Without hesitation, she said, "Yes!" We are looking forward to that. She is so prepared. We plan on teaching the rest of the lessons and then going over them again. She is so ready.
The Lord's work goes on, even here in Europe, despite all the non-believers. The Lord's work is for everyone. All His children. I know it and believe it.
