Never a dull moment...seriously!

Mission Leadership Council- These missionaries never cease to amaze us with their wisdom.

We have two sisters called as our family history specialists.  They have been researching and gathering information as to how the missionaries can best use this new effort to help the people of Denmark with their family history.  This month we are concentrating on this new effort.  Our missionaries will be trained to teach them how to gather information and even print family trees for them.  Danish people are especially interested in their families and this new effort has already created so much more interest.  We are seeing the doors open wide here.  We are very excited! 

Training on the computers.  Iceland had to skype into this MLC and they are front and center here:-)

We appreciate our Zone leaders trying out the comfort of our new family room chairs.  They were quite favorable.

Word to the Wise:  Never leave your phone/camera unattended.

Just when the sisters think they are safe- there's always a "Photo bomber"...
We love these sisters<3

On the road, training the zones.

Each zone has their own specialist to help train the missionaries.  We had a guest appearance from....What was his name again?...who needed help in finding his ancestors...

A family history book to begin the process

Some of our elders are already well on their way gathering information.

Zone leader training

Sister training leaders demonstrating what happens as we use our actions...good or bad.  The domino effect was a great object lesson!

Relaxing and talking about the training at lunch.

Somehow basketball is always an important part of the lunch hour.

Once in awhile the elders get the seniors to make a shot.

Some of us are talked into making a shot even when we have zero talent:-O

Roskilde Zone training.  Help from the zone specialist.

The zone leaders are very talented in musical abilities!

Fredericia Zone training.

Learning to do the "sponge Bob" dance step during a break.

Music seems to be such a great part of this mission.

Zone training in Aarhus.

The zone specialist, aided by a ward member.

More serious talent!

Effective training by the zone leaders.  We have many instruments to use as missionaries.  When used properly with prayer and the spirit, the truth can effectively enter right into the heart of our "investigators" whom we call "friends".

Get ready, aim for the heart....but please stand aside first...

Now that's talent!

Skagen is a favorite p-day site.  Its at the northern tip of Denmark where two seas collide from the east and west. 

After zone training all week, President and I decided to visit Skagen on our p-day.  It was crazy windy and only 43 degrees.  These waters are turbulant!

Lunch at a delicious bakery in Skagen.  I recommend this!

Random picture:  
Will the real President of Denmark Copenhagen Mission please identify himself?  Both name plates came to us from SLC.  Do they want us to speak Danish or Dutch?  The twist is, our family lived in Holland 20 years ago and we DID learn to speak Dutch.  Why does everyone confuse Danish and Dutch!  LOL

President and I visited with and spoke in the Fredrikshavn branch.  We have great missionaries:-)  Does life get any better?
