Week 46 ~ happy easter & keukenhof

This week we did a LOT of finding. Whoooo! Our mission almost met our goal of finding new investigators during the two weeks of the #princeofpeace campaign. We got 292/305 new investigators! It's cool to see that God helps us with our goals when we have the faith to make them.

We also went to KEUKENHOF this week!! Keukenhof is the most beautiful tulip festival in the world! I won't write too much today because I have tonssss of pictures.

Also Happy Easter! We were blessed with four investigators who came to church! And one of our investigators, Iris, surprised us in relief society. We were discussing ways that we listened to the spirit this past week and Iris raised her hand and announced that she is preparing to be baptized!! We are super excited to help her prepare for her baptism! She is married to a member and has been coming to church and doing her own research for the past year or so. Now she's ready to get the rest of the lessons from us and make the best decision of her life! yay! :)

We got to help one of our investigators, Etty, with an Easter party for her kids, her sisters' kids, and the neighborhood kids. So many children in one house. They each decorated their own cake (with fondant), cut out cookies, and painted an egg. We hid chocolate eggs for them to find around the neighborhood too. It was super tiring, but super fun. On Easter we went to one of our fav members, Tineke, and had lunch and painted eggs. Fun fact: people here don't dye eggs, they paint them. Kinda different, but still fun.

Ik ben zeer dankbaar voor mijn Heiland Jezus Christus die voor ons gestorven is. Ik ben dankbaar dat door Hem, and dankzij zijn opstanding, kunnen wij allemaal opstaan en met onze hemelse vader weer wonen. Ik weet dat hij leeft! Ik ben blij dat ik deze kennis heb en voor de gelegenheid om mijn vreugde hier in Nederland met anderen te delen!

Ik hou van jullie!
