So.... this week has been one of the craziest weeks of my mission. I'm pretty sure I say that every week, but this time I really mean it. Monday and Tuesday were a blur after transfer calls, just getting everything ready for the new sister. On Wednesday we left on a train at 6:15 to be in Leiden at 9:30. There were only 2 sisters that came in this transfer so I feel really blessed to have this growing opportunity of training.
It Snowed This Week!
It snowed for a little bit last week but it didn't stick at all.
But when we woke up on Saturday morning... we felt like kids on Christmas day.
Beautiful Leeuwarden was covered with snow and the canals were frozen. We needed to bike to the station to catch a bus but we only had one bike. Our plan was to achterop- one person rides on the back, but it was way too slippery and it was Zuster Romney's first time doing it. Instead we waited for a different bus which didn't end up coming for an hour because of the weather! But we built a lovely snow man while we waited. Sadly the snow only lasted for a day and a half and there is just a bit of slush and ice now. But it was so exciting for a day!
As for new investigators we don't have any right now, but we did meet someone on the street who we made an appointment with. Zuster Doxey and I found him last week and we saw him walking on the sidewalk as we were biking and we stopped him and started talking to him. Apparently he has met the missionaries before because he asked us for a card before we had the chance to give him one. I'll keep you updated on how it goes!
Favorite scripture of mine this week would be Alma 26:35-37. We are all so important in the eyes of our Heavenly Father. Don't forget the simple principle that God is our Loving Heavenly Father and he will do anything for us to learn the right principles and be worthy enough to return back to him.
I am doing really well and I thank the Lord everyday for my health. My jaw is doing just dandy and I am a biking machine.
I love you all and thank you for the Birthday wishes!
Gotta run! Gonna do a bit of shopping to find Z. Romney some good winter stuff. We already found her a bike this morning so that was a blessing! It's a super good one too.
Ik hou van jullie
p.s. I get to pick up my B-day package tomorrow :) At zone training.
