So I'll start this week with one crazy realization: A quarter of my mission is done! Crazy! I feel like I've done nothing!
This week we finally got to see some cool success and got 2 new investigators for the 1st time this whole transfer-- about 60 hours of doors per investigator :) so that was cool! Met tons of awesome potentials along the way too!
Now for the jammer stuff (sad/disappointing) yesterday in church our awesome ward mission leader got released. He was infamous in the mission as being the best, so that was really sad. But then to top that, I'm getting transferred. I'm heading to Antwerp-en which is like 30 minutes away. I'm pretty sad to be leaving I really love the people here and was getting really close to them. Plus its a bit sad to leave when we finally started to see the success from our work! Oh well, its life, and I can't wait to see what things are ahead for me and Elder McBride in Antwerp-en (hes from the same MTC group as elder Howard)
My new address is:
Elder Talyon Anderson Perry
Touching Testimony of Sacrament and prayer...
So yesterday we brought a lady who is sick the sacrament and it was very touching to hear her testimony of the sacrament and prayer. Amazing lady. I also gave her a blessing: First blessing in dutch! told her somethings about her children son becoming more active because of her example so I'm really going to have to have faith in my Patriarchal Blessing when it says the priesthood will always honor me. It was crazy how I felt the spirit really strong and started crying as I had said that.
A new ward just opened up in Brussels that is English speaking, that area will be in our mission and they will likely have missionaries there soon. We are like 1 ward away from opening a 5th stake which is cool.
I had like 4 members tell me about the rugby world cup finals which was sweet! haha
That's about it for this week. we are going to try to get 33 hours this week and really hit the area hard. we've been over 26 hours every week so far except for our conference week.
love you guys!
