I went on exchanges this week with one of the new missionaries, Zr. Pomales. It was so fun! Zr. Pomales tried to ride Zr. Klenk´s tall bike and crashed into a parked car (luckily no damage) and then fell off a couple minutes later. We switched bikes for the day hahah. We also discovered edible (egg free) cookie dough at the ice cream shop... and the best part is.. IT´S MILK FREE!!! This is a dangerous, glorious discovery people. I was so pumped. Anyway the real miracle from our exchange was we found a new investigator! His name is Erik and he was a previously contacted dvd referral and was marked as a potential, but I think the missionaries lost contact with him or something. So we looked him up and he is super interested! Zr. Pomales did a great job sharing about Joseph Smith. I´m always super impressed by the greenies and their Dutch and readiness to share the gospel!
The BEST thing happened on Wednesday. So a couple weeks ago, we belled up one of our look ups and these two guys were standing by their car and they said something like, "Hey good job. You guys do good work." We thanked them and started to walk away and then I turned around and was like, "Actually, we share a book with people about Jesus Christ. Do you guys want one?" One of the guys, Toga, was super interested! He´s muslim, but read the bible for the first time when he was in prison haha and now is super open to learning about other religions. So we gave him Alma 32 to read. Toga´s wife is spanish and apparently Alma means soul in Spanish so he thought that was a coincidence that we were there and gave him that chapter because he told us he had just blurted out, "Alma" the other day. I said, "Toeval bestaat niet!" which means that there are no such things as coinicidences haha. Anyway we tried to get his number but he told us he´d just call us if he had more interest :/ So we were thinking we would never see him again. BUT HE CALLED US on Wednesday and said he loved Alma 32!! He then asked US if we could set up an appointment to talk about it and asked for another chapter to read before then. BIGGEST MIRACLE. So cool. The Book of Mormon testifies of itself! Booyaaaa. We´re super excited to meet with him this week.
This week we just saw lots of miracles and gave out tons of Books of Mormon!! It was really cool. One of the books we gave out was to this little old 80 year old lady and we asked her if she wanted a book and she said, "Ja, leuk!" Haha so cute. We also bike contacted a guy named Omar who is super interested in our message! We gave out seven book of mormons to interested people and contacted two positive referrals. We´re really excited to work with all the cool people we´ve been finding!
God is good! Read your scriptures. Do something nice for someone. Choose to be happy.
I love you!!
