Hallo everyone. This week was a good one, and kinda crazy but a good one.
My greenie is great and super bold...it is awesome, she is way tooo hard on herself with the language and stresses too much about not understanding. But we are doing well together and working hard!
We saw a lot of small miracles everyday.
I got to work with sis. Duncan for a little bit because we had to go to MLC and our companions went to Brussels for legal stuff which was cool...and she accidentally took the keys to sis. De souza's bike back with her to Apeldoorn. So we planned to go pick them up and we headed on our way to Apeldoorn and we talk to this super nice old man named Franc and he was super sweet and we were supposed to talk to him, and half way through the ride: I get a call from sis. Duncan and they cant come to meet us...so we went technically for no reason, but were able to meet Franc so that was cool.
Exchanges this week...first ones as sister training leader. It was good. We had them with the Tilburg sisters, because they dont have any other sisters in their zone so I am over them as well. It went really well. I had called someone in the area book who actually didnt seem that possible, but I really felt like I should just call her and see if the time was right, because what was I going to lose right? Well I had called her and scheduled an appointment with her for the day with sis. Musgrave another greeny. We got lost a little bit, but we got there and it was such a great lesson!! The spirit was there, and she is really positive and before we were done, she asked us to schedule another appointment with her!!
I got to skype yesterday. It was really good seeing you all! It is a little weird, and I was kinda a little nervous to skype, just because I am really loving my mission and not homesick and I didnt want that to change it. But we are good. I love and miss you all, but I really love this place and dont want to leave. This week I have really hit a wall that I never thought I would reach and that is the realization that my time is going by way toooooo fast, and I love this place soooo much. Even though it is hard in a new place with a new greenie and also being sister training leader and not teaching very many people....I love it here!!! I am just soooo grateful for all of the people I have already met and the people I continue to meet every day. I dont want to stop speaking dutch or sharing the gospel with random people on the trains...or handing out the Book of Mormon to people on the train. I love this work and I am starting to see that this is what I am passionate about.
Other than that this week was great...just a lot of meetings and travel and contacting!
I love you all sooo much and I hope you have the best week ever, full of miracles!!
IK HOU VAN JULLIE!!
