Week 20 ~ Kasteel De Haar & foo foo

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​This week was super good. I love Zuster Wilkinson!! We have been partying it up in the wonderful city of Utrecht. We had a great lesson with Michael this week about the Word of Wisdom! He is not so keen on accepting it yet, but we had Claudette with us as a joint teach and she helped so much! Joint teaches seriously make such a difference. I'm so grateful for member missionary work!

Kester fed us foo foo! It's a sort of African food made from potatoes, but it's kind of like the consistency of silly puddy and you're not supposed to chew it. It's pretty weird. It was good though! We ate it with chicken stew. Lekker!

We finally went to Kasteel De Haar on P-day!! It's the biggest castle in the Netherlands. It's literally a Cinderella castle. And it's so close to where we live! We're so lucky. Zuster Wilkinson and I were freaking out hahah but the elders were good sports ;)

Tuesday was Elder Roberts b-day! I made him banana bread and we stuck some candles in it haha. We also had zone training on Wednesday and we're starting to read the Book of Mormon as a mission all the way through before the end of the year! They gave us each a new copy and we are going to mark every time it mentions or refers to Christ and record all the names for Christ and tally how many times each name is mentioned. I'm SO excited. I've already started and it's so amazing to see how many times Christ is mentioned each page and even each verse! I love the Book of Mormon because it really is centered on Christ and we can come closer to him through reading it :)

I hope you all have a great week! 

Love, Zuster Fordiani
