I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend. Suriname has a thing here called "Tweede Passen", second Easter, the Monday after Easter. So we're emailing today. We've had some really cool experiences this week.
We had a really cool experience a new investigator named Rosieta. She is a very nice lady. She's currently going through a great many problems though. We've had some very spiritual lessons with her though. I remember one lesson she was expressing to us in tears why she had to deal with all of these problems. I remember my heart aching for this lady, and I remember praying to know what on earth I could say to help her. A confirmation to me said to teach her the Restoration, like we had planned to do. We ended up having a good lesson, and she agreed to read the Book of Mormon and come to church. It's amazing to see how the Lord prepares people to hear the message of the Restoration, and how he puts people like Rosieta in our path so we can teach them about the gospel.
We had a good Easter. We saw good church attendance and enjoyed listening to the testimonies of the members. We had studies and did some contacting. We were then headed to our evening appointments when I crashed my bike trying to avoid a snake in the road. Sorry, I wasn't able to get a picture of the snake. But I promise it was a cool pink and black stripped snake. I bent my front wheel and sprained my left hand in the crash. We were out in the middle of no where so we had to walk back to our apartment. It wasn't too far though. I enjoyed listening to some conference talks while icing my hand for the last part of Easter haha. Mission memories :)
Sorry, it feels like my email time keeps getting shorter. I have to go, but I wish you all a great week!
Ik hou van jullie!!!
