Hello everyone, I have 14 minutes before this computer shuts down. Challenge Accepted.
So great week. I'm going to go fast...
Monday. Hands down the best spiritual thought I've ever had with a member family. They are a young couple, and they are incredible. We shared with them a talk called Feed My Sheep that Elder Holland gave in the MTC. (https://youtu.be/qRCYJF9mrD0?
We shared this as part of something that our Stake President wants us to share with the members, so I will ask of you the same. Watch that talk from the 40 min mark-ish, and then ask yourself, how have I gone back to fishing? How am I like Peter? I wish I had more time to explain it better. Next week!
So Tuesday we went to the hospital for Elder Hunter. Still no verdict. So we are waiting for a phone call today.
On Wednesday we had no appointments planned, so the night before we had figured out the areas that we wanted to find in, people we wanted to look up, etc. It looked like it was going to be a long hard day of finding (gotta love em!), but it turned into an awesome day of finding. From the get go we just started finding potentials. The first two people we talked with turned into potentials, and we came across an old potential on the street.
We had planned to go door knocking on a certain street that we had seen success on, and ended up having a "let in lesson" with a sweet, elderly Dutch lady, who also gave us a referral for her neighbor. It was awesome!
We did look ups that the ward gave us, less actives and formers, and almost every one was home. We either taught them, or set up a new appointment. We were looking up the last former before dinner, when we both felt like we should knock the rest of the street. We ended up with three solid potentials on that street, two of which were families. BLESSINGS! That night we looked up one of our investigators, and he let us in. We had a great lesson with him addressing some of his concerns.
It was just an awesome day! We ended with 7 hrs and 15 min of proselyting time, a bunch of new potentials, less actives, and lessons with investigators. It was great.
I think a big part of the success we had that day was prayer. After every "miracle" we said a prayer of gratitude. I think we prayed at least 20 prayers of only gratitude that day. It was awesome! Heavenly Father just blessed us!
I'm out of time. I love you guys, and I hope I can write more next week.
So Elder Muller sent lots of pictures this week. Unfortunately, he doesn't have time to identify what they are! I have only a few with descriptions, but they are still beautiful areas of the Netherlands!
