Rain, Rain and MORE Rain!

This week was the last Ældste Holbrook and Ældste Howland had together. They are both getting a new companion but from what I understand they get to share the apartment for a month ALL 4 of them, so they are still together for a little longer ;o)

I was a VERY rainy week in Randers for Ældste Holbrook but he still biked and went out there to work.

 This is a REALLY BIG spider for Denmark. Scary :o(

This is so beautiful and those clouds are just amazing!!

Rain, Rain and MORE Rain ;o) Ældste Howland is soaked to the bone!!

 Ældste Holbrook got pretty wet too but he was wearing a rain coat :o)

Dinner with Brother and Sister Hicks. They are spoiled those Ældster.

Another great week for Ældste Holbrook in Randers. He is in a learning and growing mode again and that is hard at times but so worth it. Keep up the good work and stay close to the Lord.

MISSION CONFERENCE and seeing "old" friends!

Ældste Holbrook was really excited for this week because he got to meet all the missionaries that are serving in Denmark. They had a mission wide conference where they all went to Copenhagen and had meetings together. So he was looking forward to seeing some of his "old" companions again and just mingling with the other missionaries serving in Denmark!

 Elder and Sister Hicks. Ældste Holbrook Loves them so much and they are a great support for him.

 Neat Danish Harbor.

 Interesting art :o)

Ældste Holbrook and Ældste Howland. A great pair of missionaries.

 Stay POSITIVE ;o)

 All the missionaries that are serving right now in Denmark.

I am so grateful for all the people/missionaries that Ældste Holbrook have met in Denmark. They have all taught him so many things and he is a better person for having known them! What a great thing to be serving and learning in your Mom's Mother country this is a blessing for sure.
