Well, I officially am in a trio again. The week was crazy
busy! Our schedule was booked to the max and we literally had to run to get to
several appointments. Yep, crazy. Ha ha.
Sister Ripplinger and Sister Handley are my new companions.
They both love to dance and enjoy cooking/baking, so we might be making a lot
of delicious food...They are both from Utah,
so are the two elders in our ward, so everyone jokes that I am the odd one from
Actually, we have one member in our ward who just calls me "Texas" and looks at
me whenever there could be any slight reference to my state.
Highlight of the week: We visited a lady who was a former
investigator. She told us that she had prayed someone would come and then we
My companions and I are still running on only 2 months of
language experience, so we are still trying to learn, but luckily a couple
members told us they will give us some language lessons :)
The ward here is AMAZING! We are really hoping we can do all
we can to help it grow. I am glad I get to stay here for at least 6 more weeks
Let me first tell you about transfer calls. So last week, we
were awaiting a call all week to figure out what was going to happen with
transfers. In our mission, many missionaries play "transfer madness,"
like March Madness, but you just try to figure out where everyone is going in
the mission. Sister Hadley and I just did it for the sisters, but it is kind of
hard to gage because we have received 18 new sisters in Denmark over
the last two months. As of this week there will be a total of 21 sisters in the
Anyway, we awaited our call and were excited to see if any
of our guesses were right. Friday afternoon, President called us! It almost
felt like we were on a reality show. We picked up the phone, put it on speaker,
and then he said, "You ready to hear what's happening with transfers? One
of you will be staying. One of you will be leaving... Sister Hadley... that
will be you. You will be packing your bags and heading to Aalborg...
Sister Orgill, you will be receiving two sisters, Sister Handley and Sister
So, I am staying in Vejle! I am excited to stay here because
it is already set up to go and we already have several appointments set up for the week! It will be
great to work more closely with the members and really dive into working in the
We have a rule that there must always be 3 of the same
gender whenever we are teaching, so this means that we usually can't get a man
from church to come with us to teach another man because we would still need
another woman or man, but now since there will be three sisters in Vejle, we
can do that because we will always have three! It's really an exciting time. We
will be the only trio in the mission.
Last thing to share. At zone training last week, we did an
object lesson where our mission president had the football and had to make a
touch down. The sisters were on offense, the elders on defense and we were not
allowed to touch. One of the sisters got this great idea to have us all hold
hands and make a circle around our mission president to protect him so he could
get to the other side of the field. We did it and it worked perfectly, because
the elders could not touch us or even block us since they were not expecting
it. Afterwards, our mission president talked about how secure he felt in the
circle and that is exactly how investigators feel when the members extend their
a hand and create friendships with them. We all have the same goal, returning
to our Father in Heaven, it's not a competition, we can help each other and
protect each other if we work together to get there.
Love you all so much!
