10th letter from Eindhoven, Netherlands -- Week 58

Hey guys!
I am at the library because the internet at the church is broken at the moment.  I only have 30 minutes, so I will try to bust this out!

This week we looked up a guy named Settle.  He let us in and we were able to have a lesson with him. His family had visitors in the living room, so we taught him the whole restoration lesson standing in his door way! Haha.  The legs were burnin’ after that lesson.

Umu is doing great! We had 3 lessons with her this week and she also came to church on Sunday! The ward is doing such a good job of fellowshipping her and welcoming her into the ward.  Umu shared with us some crazy stories about the war back when she was in Sierra Leone.  She has had a pretty crazy life, but as she was telling us these stories you could see how she had been prepared throughout her whole life to hear the gospel.

I was on an exchange with Elder Hirsch this week in Heerlen.  We had a service project that night with the sisters in another city.  We got our service clothes on and took the train to the other city and met up with the sisters.  We were just about to get on the bus and the woman called us and cancelled.  Now we were stuck in a different city with gardening clothes on and no appointment.  We went on a joint teach with the sisters and the rain just started pouring on us and we all got soaked.  We met their investigator and he took us to get hot chocolate at a cafe.  It was the nicest cafe I have ever been in! Haha.  Everyone was dressed up in fancy clothes and we were all in sopping wet gardening clothes. We were at least able to have a cool lesson with their investigator.

We did a service project for Theo and Sylvia this week.  We helped them move into a house down the street. They also came to church on Sunday! We will be meeting again with them this week.

On Saturday morning we had our interviews with President and Sister Bunnell.  It was very different than with President Robinson.  It was cool to get to know him and his wife a little bit more.  Great people.

We also looked up an inactive guy this week with Harry.  Things got a little heated and before you knew it they were yelling at each other! It was pretty intense.  Harry (our 85 year old ward member friend) has no problem calling people to repentance haha.

We have an exchange every single day this week, so we are gonna be drop dead tired by Sunday.  The Lord is definitely blessing the work in Eindhoven. Things are good.  

Have a swell week! Peace.
