Well, good news–I am back in Zoetermeer!!! With Zr Huber and Zr Thomas!!!
Ok, here’s how last week went:
MONDAY: We, Zr Bradley, Zr Huber, and I, had a great Pday and a long nap!
TUESDAY: Zr Bradley became very sick. I went into the shower room and said a prayer for her and during my prayer, President Robinson called to talk to her! What a blessing! She ended up going to stay with the senior couple, Elder and Zr Romig, for a couple of days. ALSO, Tuesday was a full day, so Zr Huber and I could not accompany Zr Bradley. We had 4 hours of door and street contacting, and man oh man, it was crazy. I was done with doors, but Zr Huber said “Let’s just finish this street, Zr Faa.” and so then it was my turn and I knocked on the door, preparing myself for “geen intreseered!”when a Surinamse lady opened the door and listened to me talk in Dutch. I can’t remember what I said, but I pulled my extra Book of Mormon out of my bag and handed it to her. She asked about the Bible and I told her that we use it with the Book of Mormon. I bore testimony and she asked another question, then she invited us in! We had a great hour-and-a-half with her, talking about her family and her grandparents, then the Book of Mormon and Prophets. We’re going back today at 1! What a miracle on a crazy day with two greenies in the large city of Den Haag.
WEDNESDAY: Another full day. We had Zone Training in Zoetermeer (I saw Zr Thomas!! and I hated leaving her and my city!!) Then Zr Huber and I went back to Den Haag and taught 3 lessons to amazing investigators. We also found the Palace and the Royal Stables (which are bigger and prettier than the palace…?) and got caught in a few hail storms!
THURSDAY: Wow. This was also a crazy day. We found the beach! Just long enough to take a pic, then we left for an appointmentI met Barry, who is quite amazing. We also had a lesson and dinner with Ethlyn (in the pic with me) and I realized I was used to Den Haag–which was very weird and I felt guilty haha–but then we got a call from Zr Robinson saying that we would be going to Zoetermeer Friday!
FRIDAY: Zr Thomas, Zr Huber, and I became a trio in Zoetermeer!! Haha, it’s been crazy. Zr Thomas is almost healed. We are doing a little more every day and she is so excited–so I am, too! Zr Huber is one of my new dearest friends and I just love her. It’s great to be back in Zoetermeer, in the apartment, and everything! THe people! Church! haha:) Love it. Zr Bradley will hopefully be well enough to come back on Wednesday or Thursday. But until then, we have a wonderful, fun trio! 🙂
Thanks for all the support at home and all around the world! I am so excited to keep going and I’ve learned that the Lord means for you to keep learning, so when you get comfy in one spot He puts you in another! hahaha.
