It's been another great week in Wanica. It's also been sort of a crazy week too. We've been having bike problems and our phone broke down this week too, which has led to a lot of unforeseen difficulties a.k.a chaos. Anyways, we've had some wonderful things happen this week, and we are very excited for this next coming week too.
H is doing awesome! She's getting baptised this Saturday which we are really excited for. She is such an honest and humble seeker of truth and it's been an awesome opportunity to teach her. She catches onto everything quickly and she's also really good applying gospel principles in her life, "om evangelie beginsellen in je leven te toepassen" as the Surinamese say it.
The S family are on fire right now! They are progressing so well!! The entire family came to church together for the very first time ever and they loved it! The members have been so good at fellow-shipping them and are very excited for their baptism. We are also very excited for them as well. We've been teaching them about the importance of family scripture study, and really stressing reading out of the Book of Mormon.
The Book of Mormon truly is the foundation to everything that we do in the church. The promise has been made time and time again that one will never lose their testimony if they read out of the Book of Mormon everyday. I know that is true! In D&C 43:34 it says "Treasure these things up in your hearts, and let the solemnities of eternity rest upon you minds forever". The Book of Mormon is so amazing because it gives us a source of hope in our lives. That knowledge that brings us hope, is what keeps us going. It's what allows us to go on from activity to activity, day to day, with confidence and happiness knowing that everything will be okay. That is such a wonderful gift that our loving Heavenly Father has given to teach one of us.
Love you all. I'll be back next week with more to come. I can't believe I'll be hitting my year mark this week. Missions really do fly by! Have a great week!
Ik hou van jullie!!!
