MAY 1,2017

Dus is al de tijd snel gegaan. Maar wij hebben toch veel wonders in ons gebied gezien!

Well well well, another week as already rolled passed. We had a great week, full of miracles! We've been busy finding more people to teach, and have been able to set a few on date.

We got transfer calls this past week. Both me and my comp are staying in the same area. We're going on transfer 3 together. Longest I've every had with any companion. We were sort of anticipating our area being split. There's been talk of of the mission splitting our area in half, because it is way too big for us to structurally manage. We helped the senior couple find a new apartment for a new missionary set last month. 2 new elders were supposed to come in this transfer, creating a new are. But, one of them does not have his visa, so we're staying all the same. They'll probably split Commewijne in half the last transfer of my mission.

We have started teaching a wonderful mother and her daughter, Rosieta and Somalie. We've been able to visit them a few times. We had a wonderful Restoration lesson with them, and both accepted a date in June. They're very excited and we're very excited for them too.

Another example how I've seen we've been led to investigators was yesterday actually. We had an appointment to go to, just before we went in for the night. The lady ended up not being home. We decided to follow up on a referral we had. When we arrived at the street, we realized we didn't have a house number for the referral. So we start "kloping" (knocking) at the houses on the street to find the referral. This one house wasn't answering. A man walked by and asked if we needed help. He kloped for us, but no one ended up answering. We ended up talking to this man though. Turns out he was a previous investigator in Guyana, and was super excited to sit with missionaries again.

President Egbert shared with us a great quote last week. It says:
"If you are poor, work. If you are happy, work. Idleness gives room for doubts and fears.
If disappointments come, work.When your faith falters and reason fails, just work.
When dreams are shattered and hope is gone, work. Work as if your life is in peril, it really is.
Work faithfully. Work is the greatest remedy available for both mental and physical affliction."
I testify as a missionary that that is true! Work is the way we show our faith. We may not understand way things happen the way they do. But we keep going. We keep working. In the end, everything will work out. The Lord will consecrate our efforts. That is the beauty of this gospel.

Love you all, have a great week!

Ik hou van jullie!!!
