allo iediereen!! Het heeft een andere wel leuke week in Uitkijk, Suriname zijn! Veel gaat dit week en daar zult meer komen als de week doorgaan. Ik ben echt moe van alles dat gaat en zult gebeurt dit week zijn!
A lot of great stuff has been happening this week. We've been able to receive a lot of answers to prayers this week as we've continued on in the work here in Uitkijk. It's certainly been a blessing and I am very grateful for how the Lord is aware of each one of us.
A great answer to our prayers this last week is that we were able to build our teaching pool a lot more. We've been able to find new investigators as well as meet less actives that have been off radar for a while. The work had been struggling in that respect so I am very grateful for that.
We've had some pretty great lessons this week. The biggest miracle I think this week was with one of our new investigators, J. She was a previous investigator who was dropped because the missionaries weren't able to meet with her because of how busy she was. BUT, we were able to go and visit her and her husband (who is a member) and talk to them about how the gospel can bless their family. It's reminded her of the spirit she'd felt before, and now she wants to take the missionary lessons again! We were able to get a baptismal date for her which is awesome! We've been able to meet with her more this week, and she's been reading A TONE and she and her husband even read to their children which is absolutely awesome!
We've been able to meet with M and J this week. M has been very busy and has had some things come up that will make it difficult to meet with her for a bit. She's doing great in her reading of the Book of Mormon, and learns and feels the spirit as she reads which is great. The next step for her is to get her husband to sit in on the lessons. It's been difficult to do that but we'll keep trying. J is also reading in the Book of Mormon, and is doing awesome recognizing how the teachings of that book can help her in her life which is awesome! We''ll see how things play out later this week.
This week's letter is a bit short. I don't have too much time this week but I wanted to say how grateful I am for a loving Heavenly Father that loves and knows us each individually. I am so grateful for the personal relationship that I can and do have with my Heavenly Father. That relationship, as well as the power of the atonement of Jesus Christ, can get us through any hardship that we have in our lives. We can and will succeed with any trials that come our way in life as long as we do our best to keep the commandments of the Lord.
Thank you for all of your support. I'll be back next week with more to come.
Ik hou van jullie!!!
