So this last week was a pretty decent week, we had 5 lessons, 2 of them where new people so that was great. Our temple trip was fun, definitely a special spirit in the temple. Keukenhof was incredibly beautiful and fun. Basically a huge garden of tulips and other cool stuff. All the tourist were pretty curious why there were 50 guys is suits walking all around the place. It was like a 3 hour modeling session with Elder Wright (from school and MTC) and Elder Leishman (MTC companion), which before my mission, I would have hated, but I'll admit taking pictures was pretty fun! I never thought I'd say that in my life! haha
This week we had a less active guy move in to the area (for 3 days because he is homeless) he is a little mentally slow and in a bad situation, without a home, because he got kicked out of the refugee camp for hitting someone. So we spent a whole day with him trying to figure out his situation, as he continued to ask us to let him move in with us or to give him our bikes... he came to church and told a story during the 2nd hour about sleeping with a guy and then yesterday he got kicked out of his temporary living situation because they realized he was faking a leg injury to stay. Interesting experience to say the least. Unfortunately he's back on the streets, but hopefully he's learned the lesson that honesty is the best policy, which we can all we reminded of!
This next two weeks are the weeks that members are going to be fasting for the missionary work and we've already seen miracles from it. We have 8 lessons scheduled which is incredible! Two weeks ago we had 2 in total. God is definitely helping this be successful for us and for the members! So we are ready to work this week!
Oh an update on Ron. He has his baptismal interview this Saturday. then the Saturday after that is the baptism and the Mission President is giving a talk during it because he heard of Ron's story and got pumped about it. He even told Ron's conversion story at stake conference in Belgium yesterday which was exciting to hear about.
so that's about it, sorry. Love you guys
