I've been shot!

That's right folks. I'm staying for my 8th transfer in the Den Haag Ward :) Oh yeah! Officially half of my mission in the same ward, and I couldn't be happier. :) :) :) (Part of Elder Muller's time in the Den Haag Ward is when he was serving in Delft.)

I will however be getting a new companion. Yep, sadly the reign on IM: DEN HAAG is over. Elder Isaksen is going to be going to Almere as a Zone Leader. My new comp, Elder Richards, has big shoes to fill ;) 

This week has been pretty eventful. We had a bunch of exchanges. One with the Leiden Elders, one with the Office Elders, and also a day we worked with President Bunnell. 

With that in mind, I wasn't actually in Den Haag a lot of this week. 

Fun stories of the week though, probably working with President. We taught a couple of lessons with him, and then took him street contacting in the centrum in Den Haag. It was a lot of fun. We parked the car, and he asked us how we find people. So I introduced him to the concept of prayer finding. You pray, then everyone says a number (of potentials that you want to find). Whatever the highest number is is what your goal becomes. We had one hour to street contact. We prayed, we all looked at each other, and we all said "Four!" at the same time. It was pretty cool. We hit the streets and just talked to people. We ended the day with 6 phone numbers. President was so cute, he just didn't understand how we did it. What's funny is that we don't do anything special, we just talk to people, about the gospel, about music, about anything. That's the secret to finding people, just talking. If all you do is shove the gospel down people's throats, it doesn't work, you have to show them that you are a normal person, and that this message could help them too. It was just a good day of finding. Of course, part of that is just what I call, "The Magic of Den Haag". 

Today was pretty cool, we had a tour of Delft with R---, an awesome member in Pijnacker. She has been a tour guide for a long time, and she hooked us up fat. 

I also ran into the man that (helped) put me in this blessed ward, Daniel Ames. He wanted a shout out on the blog, so here ya go :). He's visiting the Netherlands with a group of students from BYU.

Hey Peeps,

It's been another week here in Den Haag, full of unexpected things that just throw us off our normal schedule. It's been a pretty long week, honestly.
What happened.. .Well we gave Zone Training. I guess I will talk about that. Like I said last week, we based the entire training off of one verse in Alma 26. 

22 Yea, he that repenteth and exerciseth faith, and bringeth forth good works, and prayeth continually without ceasing—unto such it is given to know the mysteries of God; yea, unto such it shall be given to reveal things which never have been revealed; yea, and it shall be given unto such to bring thousands of souls to repentance, even as it has been given unto us to bring these our brethren to repentance.

We broke the verse down into two parts, Promised Blessings and what we call "The Miracle Formula". So the promised blessings, know the mysteries of God, and bring thousands of souls to repentance, pretty cool blessings don't ya think?

So how do we achieve that? Through Repentance, Exercising Faith, Bringing Forth Good Works, and Praying Continually.

So in other news, if you think back to about a year ago when I was in Rotterdam, I was teaching a woman named J----. Well I left Rotterdam and never knew what happened to her, until about a week ago. I got a call from the Elders in Rotterdam inviting me to her baptism! So I went. She's baptized! 

A blessed event! J---- was baptized!

J--- and Elder Muller

Nothing else of great importance happened, I feel like. We went to Belgium, and Elder Isaksen tried to order food in French (we were in the French speaking part). The lady had no idea what he was trying to say, so she just responded "Cheeseburger?" I got a good laugh at that.

Love you bye.
