15th letter from Den Haag, Netherlands -- Week 81

Anja Rebber and Elder Steenblik  (Saturday 01-09-16)

Hey, Peeps,

It has been an awesome week.  We saw a lot of miracles and had a great time working.

To start the week off we looked a guy up named Ferdinand that we had found from our area book.  He was happy to see us and welcomed us in.  He is from somewhere in the French part of Africa, but speaks great Dutch.  We taught him the restoration lesson and set a baptismal date for the 20th of February! He came to church on Sunday as well and loved it.  He is a homie!

This week we had our Mission Leader Council at the mission home.  There will be a lot of change coming in the next couple of weeks when it comes to how things are run.  Basically instead of going on 20 exchanges a transfer, I will only go on 2! So that means Elder Clukey and I Will have lots of time to work here in Den Haag together.  That will be nice.

On Saturday we got to go to Anja's baptism! I was able to help teach Anja back when I served in Hengelo.  I was super sick on Saturday and must have eaten something on Friday that just didn’t agree with me and I threw up like, 5 times.  But I had waited for Anja's baptism for months and I wasn't gonna miss it for anything! So we made the 1 1/2 drive out to Apeldoorn.  Elder DeWitt came with us because he served in Hengelo as well.  It was awesome to see Anja get baptized.  She was super happy and so were all of the people that came to support her.  It was also great to see some of the Hengelo members again.  I have missed all of them!

On Sunday night this week we had another first lesson with a woman named Joyce.  She is from Suriname.  That means that she loves to give us food! We taught her about the restoration and we are meeting with her again this week.

It has been a fantastic week.  Most of our investigators are still on vacation but it was a great chance to find some new people.  We had lots of success this week finding new people to teach and we have set up quite a few appointments for this upcoming week which we are excited about.  The Lord is blessing the work here in Den Haag.  Thank you for all of your prayers in our behalf! Love you guys.
