We have many investigators

Since we moved into our little missionary cottage on the outskirts of Odense, we have had many investigators. We have had big wooley danish horses keeping an eye on us all winter. We were not sure whether they were friend or foe.
All winter they stood close together for warmth and protection.

The stand and stare at us as we come and go.

Now it is spring and they have become our friends. There are three of them now. They have been allowed to come into our little backyard pasture to eat fresh dandilions and the green spring grass that is popping up all over the place. We call them by name and they all turn to look at us. They know how to speak English. I say, "Hello Horses, how are you today." And they always turn and look. When I get carrots long enough I will have the courage to feed our curious investigators. All Danes love carrots.

These black beauties have fuzzy feet, and tails that brush the ground.
All three of them parade around our backyard together. They are never alone. I think that they believe in strong families.

I am looking forward to having a picnic with them out in our backyard, and maybe a furry family night.

We have other investigators in our backyard from time to time. They are more stand -offish but we will continue to enjoy them. They are "morning friends". They like to eat and run, waving goodbye with their white tails.

This is our favorite investigator. She has become a regular. She was shy in the beginning but when we offered her a meal, she became one of our best friends. She even takes a nap at our house once in a while. She has learned a little English and comes when we say "here kitty, kitty, kitty."

Here she is relaxing on our sofa next to my scriptures. So far the only thing that she has tasted from the scriptures... is my ribbon book mark. She is a peaceful investigator...we love to have her around the house.


  1. What a fun post. I love to see what you are up to.

  2. Jake just said, "Why does Grandma have horses in her back yard?" Very fun. I love those horses. They seem very robust. Maybe if they are receptive to your message and become converted they'll stay strong. :) Let us know.
