Week 21 ~ Area books are golden

Hey everyone! Still here in Utrecht! I was sick/had super bad allergies this week, but we continued to see the miracles. First off, we went through the area book and got in contact with some former investigators. Two of which who still have interest and are now our investigators! They're so cool. We taught Jeremy twice this week! It was amazing. He had a lot of questions about the Restoration so our lesson was really long, but so worth it because at the end he asked if he could try to sum it up. Then he recited the whole restoration of the church back to us! So cool! He's excited to pray about the Book of Mormon to know if it's true. The other former investigator we found is Rianne. We visited her and she said that she loves the Book of Mormon and reads it every day! She has read through the entire book and even had her favorite scriptures bookmarked. We had the prompting to invite her to be baptized and she accepted! We're really excited to work with her towards that goal :)

Our investigators Michael and Kester are still doing great and progressing a lot! It's so exciting to see them understand and enjoy the lessons we teach. I also finally street contacted this week! For some reason I haven't really done that a ton on my mission yet (it's pretty scary) but it was actually really fun! It gave us the opportunity to spend some time in the beautiful Utrecht centrum as well. A family came up and contacted us! It turned out to be a Mormon family from Lelystad. I love Mormons hahah. It was fun to chat with them for a bit. 

Oh also! Coolest thing! We got a referral sent to us that a woman from the Netherlands went to the MoTab choir in SLC and she talked to a member sitting next to her. She told the member that her boyfriend really wants a Book of Mormon but she had to leave to the airport right after to return home. The member told her that she could get her a copy and so she gave her her address. After finally getting in contact with our office, we were able to get the referral and deliver the Book of Mormon to her. She was SO excited! It was awesome! And the coolest thing was that she lives on the same block as us!! Pretty amazing.

A funny thing that happened this week is that we were taking a train to a dinner appointment with the elders and one of the train conductor guys came over and started talking to us. He was super funny (and kind of crazy) and he asked me how old I was and then said if I was older he would've married me hahah. He also patted me on the head and gave me gum. Haha he didn't accept our Book of Mormon, but we had a fun time chatting with him.

I also tried funeral potatoes for the first time... in the Netherlands. Haha the senior couple fed them to us and they are amazing!!

Hope you all have a great week!
