So I guess I should explain my subject lines from my last two emails...
Week 15: 30 lbs of Bread. There was a lady who gave us 30 lbs of bread. Yup. I guess I forgot to mention that.
Week 16: 3 for 3. 3rd transfer, 3rd companion. :)
Week 17: The Book of Mormon is true, because starfish are weird
Elder Hunt and I were talking about starfish (don't ask me why... we just were) and we were thinking about just how weird it is that you can cut them in half, but they will just grow another starfish (and more things about just how starfish are weird in general) Elder Hunt just couldn't understand how that was possible, so he just turned to me and said. "The Book of Mormon is true, because starfish are weird." (I will now refer you to Alma 30:44 in the Book or Mormon)
SOOOOOOOOOOOO, it's been a weird week. But first the good stuff.
night, we had an AWESOME time at Familie P. He is a less active member with four non member daughters that we've been working with. This was only the second time that I've been there when all four girls were home, and the first time it was actually a set appointment. It was sooooo cool. We've been working with Brother P. since before I got here, but it's been harder with the girls (He's a single dad, and they have school... ya busy schedule).
It was just so awesome. They are probably the coolest people I've worked with. They had us over for dinner, and we just got to know them and taught a small lesson. IT WAS SOOO COOL! They just talked with us for like an hour and a half! The best part, we went back yesterday and all four of them were home AGAIN! Aw man, the Lord blesses you hardcore after 12 weeks of nix. They have so much potential, and are just an awesome family. I hope I get to see them again.

Elder Hunt was sick from Woensdag tot en met Vrijdag, dues wij hebben niet zo veel gedaan. Spijtig, maar wat is er te doen? (Elder Hunt was sick from Wednesday through and including Friday, so we didn't get very much done. Too bad, but there wasn't much we could do about it.) (From Amy: I am just still so thrilled that I can continue to translate what Elder Muller is saying!!)
So I studied most of this week. I studied a lot. The Ghent Elders came down a couple times and did a split so we could teach some appointments we had, but other then that, I studied. (Because our missionaries are always in a companionship, when one is sick, the other companion must stay with them in the apartment. Now let me explain why this is hard....missionary apartments are not equipped with any electronics...no TV, no radio, no smart phones, no computer/internet, access. So that leaves them with only all of their study materials to read, so those days can become long. They were able to have the Elders from Ghent come to Brugge and trade out with Elder Muller. One of the Ghent Elders would stay in the apartment with Elder Hunt, and the other companion would go with Elder Muller to teaching appointments and to go out and proselyte.)
And it came to pass that when I, Nephi, had spoken these words unto my brethren, they were angry with me. And it came to pass that they did lay their hands upon me, for behold, they were exceedingly wroth, and they did bind me with cords, for they sought to take away my life, that they might leave me in the wilderness to be devoured by wild beasts.
