It sounds like yall had a good week, Ian’s home made banana ice cream and dad's rice and bbq chicken made me drool lol! Sounds like the bike trip were a success; I have no doubt that dad was leading the pack and showing those little deacons how it’s done! It sounds like petite momma vs. boo boo was a success, as well seeing as you both survived Dad's absence as well lol, I hope the conditioner was found before anyone got hurt lol! The sight seeing sounds just great, I’m down as long as I can visit a day or two with some ppl from Kortrijk and Heerlen :). As for the b-day package, I could use maybe a few garment bottoms, dry lux; do they have a brief style of garments? That would be awesome (size s). COOKIES sound good!
Well, we had a solid week. I felt really good about it. We stayed pretty balanced this week in what we did and hard work really paid off. The week started out with a bang. on Monday we had a consecrated hour of finding, during which we found a lady and had a great discussion with her about scripture and truth, about how when we read things we can follow either the light of Christ or the Holy Ghost to recognize and learn truth. She has a B.O.M and we will visit with her this coming week and see how it went with her and her experience with reading the BOM. Tuesday was also nothing short of awesome. We had another C.H wherein we accidently tracted out a member’s home and had a great talk with them. While we were talking to them I received a call from someone who 'received a card(pass-along card) from the elders and he said 'I think I want to learn more, actually I think I want to come to church, in fact, when can I meet with yall' lol. We met with him the next day and had a great and open talk about Christ’s church, certain things we do differently than others, in general just got a feel from where he was coming from. At the end of our lesson we introduced and committed him to a teaching calendar. His name is Tennison. Also, during that next day we met with Brother Barodka, whose son Denis, will now be moving to the Netherlands and who will now be taking the missionary lesson. He comes from Belarus where the church is viewed very poorly for political reasons.... he now is ready to learn more! Directly after this appointment, I got a call back from an investigator we hadn’t seen in a while and we were able to set up an appointment for Saturday! The appointment Saturday went very well! We were able to get two joint teaches about her age and they really hit it off and seem to be good friends now :), she is praying and reading – a.k.a progressing!
Game Day, we were able to see 3 investigators in church. Lillian is still hanging around. We thought we were going to have to drop her, but she is still coming to activities and to appointments and I think very slowly, but surely, the Lord is working in her and she is progressing, slowly but surely. Guido was in church as well and he made some great strides as far as fellowship goes. He really hit it off with brother Van Gemeert and bro De Vylder during ward potluck! Awesome guy, we are going to have dinner at his place tomorrow night and share a lesson on the organization of the priesthood. Last, but not least, we saw Tennyson in church and I think he had a good experience; many were on vacation in the ward and all the empty seats made me a little nervous, but I think he really liked the meetings etc. During investigator’s class nobody was around to teach the lesson (we are without ward mission leader at the moment) so we ended up having a great discussion at a very elementary level, our Heavenly Father, Our Heavenly Family. It went really well and we had great participation!
A solid week in the books :), I love yall lots and look forward to hearing how your week goes.
