"Remember, every time you look up at the moon, I, too, will be looking at the moon, not the same moon of course. That is impossible."

This is how fast I wish I could type, but then it always just turns out like that...emailing is such a pain sometimes haha....and I am not that good at managing my I just never have time!!

Anyways. This week was really good.
Actually it was really good!!! Nothing too crazy, but just saw some small miracles throughout the week, and especially yesterday.

I sang in church yesterday, and there were two people who had come to listen to a family member speak in sacrament meeting....(non members) turns out he is a musician and they were really touched by my song. It was super cool, and they were way too nice, and kept bringing it up...A LOT. 
Then at church, Broeder Van Hensen Van Uningen gave me a referral to look was just a less active that had popped up to him, so we decided to do it just after church. So we did and it was super good. She was extremely surprised, and not necessarily happy that we came, but she was nice, and let us in. She isnt very willing to come back, but it was still cool, because we had a great small lesson with her. She had had a bad experience with the church as a member, and it made me very angry that that was even the case. We all need to do better at not judging members around them, and just loving each other....anyways. I just sang her I heard Him come...and you could tell that she felt the spirit. It is great, because in the song it says to never let His light go, and to hold on to Christ. I think it hit her. We separated a little awkwardly, but I just hope that spirit testified of the love that Jesus has for her...I know it did, because I felt it as I sung. I just hope she realized it.

After our dinner appointment with the amazing familie Markus, we had had a lesson planned with this super flaky young guy who had already cancelled a couple lessons, so we were not expecting it to go through, but when I called him he was still good for it, so the Elders came and we had an AMAZING lesson with him. The team unity was incredible, and we were able to always bring back what he was saying and going off topic to the message of the restoration...(Elder Wilson helped me out with that one) and we were all able to bear powerful testimony to him. He took it super well, and is super willing and open so it was great.

Also that lady from England that we had found before doing service last week, we went to her house as well, and expected her to have been busy, but she was ready for us when we got there. She said she had been soooo excited all week, about getting the Book of Mormon. It was incredible. I have never seen anyone as excited about the Book of Mormon as she was. She was literally giddy about it. haha so I am excited to see how she feels about it later.

Also I went on enxchanges to Tilburg we both did and just worked there, because they are really struggling with the work there, and because I had to teach a district meeting with the zone leaders in that zone, because Tilburg is not technically in our zone. (sorry for the run-on sentence) we just knocked a lot of doors, but it was great, because me and sis. Musgrave just tried singing to people, and actually had some success...not too many people actually interested, but were able to hopefully bring the spirit.
and...I ate dinner at President Boom's brothers house who is the area 70 here in Nederland sooo that was pretty cool.

It has literally pooooouuuuuuurrrreeeed almost the whole week this week. haha but somehow we have stayed pretty dry. 
We also had another super awesome lesson with this guy from Africa and I learned some Tigrinia (I think that is how you spell it)..

I love and miss you all, but I love it here...sorry. haha

Ik hou van jullie!!
Wees veilig en gezond!
Fijne week verder!
