The temple was so great. We had N** and Ma** in the temple for their first time this week. It was a great experience and so much fun. Both N** and Ma** had their own family names to take. They both were baptized for their grandmas. It was great to see that through their own conversion they have been able to give their family that same opportunity to make the covenants of baptism and continue to progress. N** loved it so much that she said she wants to see the rest of the temple. Her year mark (after being baptized herself) is the 15th of March, so it would be awesome if she went and received her endowment before I left. That would be great. We will see how it goes.
Another great thing that happened this week is that we were able to meet with G**. He was still sick and does not find out about the results from the scan until the first weekend in February. So slow. It's too bad, but that's the system and they take care of him, so that is good. We have to wait until he finds out about the scan before he will commit to a baptism date. He did say, however, that he has a stronger testimony of Joseph Smith, which he had a huge problem with before. So that is great!
Things are just trucking along. The Lord’s work is hastening and it's beautiful. We had a great time with H** this week. He taught me how to work with the electrical system here in Denmark because it's way different than at home. He taught me how to fix lights, gave me a test, and I did it right. It's good because I have had so many people ask if we know how to work with the lights, and we've had to say no. So now I know! The things you learn on a mission, haha.

It's great seeing people come closer to Christ through baptism, and even greater to see those same people taking the steps to go to the temple and make more covenants and continue to move forward. It’s the next step and it helps with activity in the church. It's a great focus and is bringing people closer to God through Jesus Christ. There is no better way to do that than to make and keep covenants!
