CRAZY WEEK. Like always. Seriously.
We had a lot of random stuff going on which is always fun. We had zone conference this week, which was fun because you get to see all your other missionary friends and get super pumped up about missionary work! Last p-day we had a zone p-day in Rotterdam and had a soccer tournament. It was super fun even though I suck at soccer hahah. We only have four sisters in our zone, so we became the four captains haha it was super funny.
According to Zuster Merz, this whole week I've been sleep talking in Dutch?! So I'm pretty excited about that. Hopefully that can transfer over to when I'm awake lol.
We were knocking doors and this old man accepted a Book of Mormon and then gave us five euros! Haha we told him we couldn't take it but he insisted on us going to get a cuppa coffee... we tried to donate it to this huge church, but it was closed. I don't actually know where the money is now...
We randomly played Dungeons and Dragons with one of the elders investigators, Paul. Hahah it was amazing. We're going back today to play for a couple hours. I'm a wizard (Abish), Zr. Merz is an assassin (Teancum), Elder Roberts is a pallidin (Captain Moroni), and Elder Torrie is a ranger (Nephi). Dad--I'm sorry for making fun of you for playing D&D when you were in high school. I love you! ;)
We also got to go on a tour of a castle with the relief society! See photos below :) And yesterday we went to a bible study with a bunch of protestants.. it was super interesting!
Our miracle this week was our lesson with Michael! So we're actually not allowed to have lessons alone with men in a building--We need to have a third woman present, and we could not find any members that could come with us. He told us he would come for a lesson at the church, and we didn't know what to do because we would still have to have our lesson outside. Anyway, we arrived at the church and two women members were having a primary meeting there! It was such a miracle because we were able to have our lesson with Michael and address his concerns. At the end of the lesson he promised us he would read in the Book of Mormon and pray about it. The next day he texted us and asked for specific chapters to read. We assigned him Alma 32 and then he texted for more! It was so cool. I'm excited to meet with him again this Wednesday. He's a champ. His middle name is Kaas (cheese) and that's what all his buddies call him. Hahaha he's hilarious.
Anyway this week was super random, but as always I have seen the hand of the Lord in my life every single day. I know that God loves us all personally and is aware of us and our needs.
Have a great week!
