April 24,2017

Hallo iedereen! Ik hoop iedereen een mooie week heeft gehad! We've had some struggles but also successes this week, and we're really feeling the Lord's had helping us in the work. 

I'll start with the bad news first so I'll end off with the good news. Charissa dropped us. We have no idea why. We haven't been able to get in contact with her via phone or going to her house. I'd been so confused because we had such a great lesson with her last Saturday and she was so excited for her baptismal date coming up.

But we've been able to see many miracles coming up and happening this past week. One was on Saturday. We met a wonderful lady named Venesa, a referral from our landlord actually. She lives in the same area as we do and as we were leaving our apartment, I got the impression that we should see if she was home. We went by and she let us right into her home. We had a great lesson with her and have a return appointment to teach her family tomorrow.

We had a couple of appointments lined up Saturday afternoon that ended up falling through, so we decided we'd go contacting after trying to see if there was anyone we could see. As I grabbed my bag to walk out the door, we get a phone call. This man named Djin called us, a previous investigator. He simply said "It's been a while since I've seen you, can you come over today"? It had been nearly 7 months since he'd received any sort of visit from the missionaries. We bike the hour bike ride to his house and had a great lesson with him.

We've been seeing all sorts of small miracles in the work this past week. We might of lost an investigator but we've been finding plenty more. We've seen plenty of success and really feel like the Lord is preparing our area. Helaman 5:2-3 Yea, we believe all the words which thou hast spoken unto us; and also, we know of their surety and truth, because of the Spirit of the Lord Omnipotent, which has wrought mighty change in us, or in our hearts, that we have no more disposition to do evilbut to do good continually. And we, ourselves, also, through the infinite goodness of God, and the manifestations of his Spirit have great views of that which is to come;

Ik hope you all have a great week. Talk to you next week! 

Ik hou van jullie!!!
