Week #73

Hello One and All,
This week was a good one! Aside from contacting for 7 to 8 hours a day we saw more than a few miracles this week. One day we were biking up this GIGANTIC hill (I hate that thing) and we noticed and very sweaty, sunburned, and tired dutch man moving into his house all by himself. We asked him if we could help and he said no, even though he obviously needed it. We were riding up the next day and we noticed that he had a friend helping him and his friend goes "LOOK, God has sent you angels to help you, I know you don't believe in that stuff but God sent them." He then let us help him and we were able to move in some very heavy things into their mansion. The area we are focusing on right now is literally all multi-million dollar houses. But we helped him move and them we were able to sit down with his wife and him and we actually able to speak about the gospel! IT was a miracle! We left a Book of Mormon and they even made a return appointment! They scheduled it for  December 5th 4 pm on a Monday but we didn't care that it was part of our P-Day. It was for sure a miracle. Also this just in, I crashed into one of the devil thorn bushes here. That hill that we climbed up ended up being my demise. Faulty breaks lead me skidding into a thorn bush. This was actually right after we found that couple. We laughed and saw how the Lord gives and takes. I am so grateful for this gospel. Life is so good and I'm so thankful to be a missionary!

Week #71

Hello Friends and Family,
Well, transfer calls came this week and I am going back to Bonaire. I am so excited to go finish what was started there. This week was full of miracles. One of which was the baptism of my investigator back in Munder Anil! A man who has literally changed his whole life around to follow the savior Jesus Christ. The drug addict, alcoholic man is now a man of Christ. It's been amazing to be a part of that process and will always have a special place in my heart. I am super pumped to head over to the Islands again. We are having a visit from President Gonzalez this week so it will be fun to see a general authority. It was hard to say goodbye to Uitkijk. I really do love everyone there. We have been working with this less active family all transfer and Zr. Tapoh is finally reactivated! She is receiving a calling to be the gospel principles teacher. Just a few of the amazing highlights this week!
