How is Time Going So Fast?

Dear family and friends,

Here's some stuff that happened this week:

-Last preparation day we went to Copenhagen and got a pedicure by fish eating our dead skin. It really tickled and didn't work too well, but it was a fun experience. We took a video of us squeeling and squirming the first minute of it :)

-We went on exchanges in Slagelse. It is a little city, so cute! Yes, it is more like Jylland there. We participated in several heart attacks to doors. I was on exchanges with Sister Vige who is from Norway. Norwegian and Danish are very similar, but Sister Vige still has learned Danish so that she can clearly communicate. She's awesome! Anyway, she is really good at researching ancestors, so at one of our appointments with an investigator, she researched for the investigator and I just "happened" to pull out my plan of salvation cutouts and taught the investigator the whole lesson. I loved it and it was perfect because I had no idea how to help her find ancestors and so I could do something that was useful :)

-We helped a family move back into the ward

-A member who we are working with to get back to the temple gave us a referral

-Something happened to Søster Packard's eye. We went to the doctor for her and the doctor Googled it... yep ha ha. Welcome to Denmark :)

-We met with an investigator who we'd never met before. He said that he feels really good about meeting and thinks it should be more often. We have a reoccuring appointment ;)

-We didn't have a lot of numbers this week, but it was a week full of miracles and it's the people that matter.

-I love saying hi to everyone on the street. My favorite is when they act surprised and ask if we know each other, but it's a great contacting approach :)

But things are going really well here. The only thing that is scary is that time is FLYING.

Love you all!

Med kærligste hilsener,

Søster Orgill

P.S. Denmark randomness:

-There are not many jay walkers here. Danes are very obedient to stoplights
-The library we go to has no personnel the majority of the time, we can just use our card and pin code to get in. They are very trusting.
-Danes often use the Word "funny" wrong... for example if I were to say,
"I got to see my Dad for the first time in 10 years yesterday"
"Oh, how funny!"

It's weird how fun and funny are so different!
