We had quite the week this week. The assistants and the Egberts were here in Suriname this past week. We were able to go out teaching with both of them this week.
We had an amazing Zone Conference this week on the Gathering of Israel. We are all literal fulfillment of the gathering of Israel, and for me, it helps me think about how important this work is. Prophets and peoples have heard about our day for thousands of years, and how the world has entered this final chapter of its history. Really cool!
We had a great experience teaching with President and Sister Egbert this week. We were able to visit Charissa with them and had a wonderful lesson on the Priesthood; one of President Egbert's favorite subjects. After the lesson, we get back in the car, and President Egbert, from the driver's seat, looks back at us and says "Elders, you found the elect". Then Sister Egbert adds "Yeah you did, she could give the reader's digest of the Book of Mormon!" I guess we've been doing a good job ;) Charissa is doing great! We're excited for her to get baptized here soon. We're starting to teach her 3 kids too.
I am so grateful for President Egbert and for his leadership here in the Trinidad Port of Spain mission. We've been able to see growth here in Commewijne, and we will continue to see it grow. I've learned how powerful the simple things of the gospel really can be. Such as simply teaching someone about who God is. Some of my most cherished memories have been teaching people simple truths like who God is. Jeremiah 16:15-16
I hope you all have a wonderful week. Talk to you later!
Ik hou van jullie!!!
