This week was crazy with New Years and everything. One thing I will suggest is that if you are ever wondering what to do for New Years and can speak a little Dutch, I would recommend coming to Suriname. They welcome the New Year right. Since the Chinese own every single store here, they bring with them their illegal fire works.... It felt like World War 3 was in the work! So much smokey fire crackers and aerials and the people were even saying that it wasn't nearly as crazy as usual and I'm like....what??!! I can't even imagine what it would be like on a normal year. But super fun! We went outside for a little bit at(apostate I know but it was too loud to sleep).
We had Zone Meeting this last Saturday and it was so good. It was all about the Book of Mormon and how we are going to get more people converted to the gospel, including less active members and such by reading the Book of Mormon. We focused a lot of Alma 32:28,38,41 and how it compares the word (The Book of Mormon) to a seed and how we must be constantly nourishing this seed every day so that it can sprout roots and be strong because if we don't it will be blown about and burned in the hot sun! I hope you all are reading your scriptures every day especially The Book of Mormon. It will be bring you closer to Jesus Christ than any other book, quoting the words of Joseph Smith in the Introduction. Nothing too crazy happened this week but we found a lady who was already so prepared and we are currently teaching her. We are busy to teach all of our less active and members about The Book of Mormon and getting them all reading every day so we can start strengthening the gospel here in Suriname. I hope you all are having a good week!
