So we bought our helmets last week, and then, due to circumstances, we can't use our bikes, so I haven't worn mine except for on the way home from the store haha
I finally got to work with Zuster Bush for a day! Tuesday was such a good day :) We worked in Breda and it was just so cool to see how much we've grown in the past year (what?) And she is just a lovely human being and we had WAY too much fun. :) We cleaned the church there in Breda and the elders left us with the toilets so that was funny. :)
When we exchanged back, Zr Jaramillo forgot to give my bike keys back, so that's why we can't bike right now. I'll get them back from her district leader on Saturday at DLC though, so 't komt goed :)
The next day we did another exchange with the Maastricht sisters, and I worked with Zr Dobler for the day in Arnhem. We had a super cool appointment with their investigator and her husband. He was really curious and wants to join all of our lessons now! At the end of the lesson he said he was curious about baptism and then said one of the most beautiful, sincere prayers I've heard, so we're naturally really really excited about them.
As we walked away a police car pulled up and the neighbor went over to talk to them. Apparently they're like bffs or whatever. haha So we just kept walking to the bus stop and the policemen came around and talked to us at the bus stop. They told us that the investigator's first name is his last name and apparently his first name is "Love". It was such a ridiculously random hour and I can't fully express the weirdness thereof, but it's fine. haha
Later we also had a man contact us so that was cool :) It was a good day.
Thursday we had interviews with President and Zr Bunnell, and it was so much fun! They are incredible and are already doing a great job. Afterward, they took Zr Ramirez and I to dinner at the chinese place by our house! It was so fun to spend some time with them. They are so loving and considerate and thoughtful. I love them so much!
The next day was a parade, so the whole city was decked out in rainbows and even the US Consulate had rainbow streamers coming down from the balcony under the American flag. It made us laugh. Amsterdam is a .... special place. :)
On Saturday we had a huge miracle! We were supposed to have an appointment with an investigator, but then when we got there he was sick, so we decided to go to the centrum to contact and we ran into a man who came to church night, but we never got his information. He was talking to a muslim man, so we all had an interesting conversation. He didn't want to give us his information to meet another time, but it was at least good to get that horrible feeling of not having asked for his address off our chests. He gave us an address of a long-lost less active to go to though! We think she maybe moved, but nobody knew, so we stopped by her yesterday and it was so cool to see that mini miracle come of it.
Everything happens for a reason! I love you all and hope you have a great week! Don't forget to read in the scriptures and pray every day, I promise you'll learn something you can use during the day or week!
