Hey Folks,

This week has been nuts! We have been all over the place.  This week alone we have been in Bruges, Brussels, Amsterdam, The Hague, Haarlem, and Rotterdam.

On Thursday we had our temple conference in the Netherlands.  We spent the night in Den Haag the day before, so we woke up on Wednesday morning and spent the day working in Den Haag.  I was able to look up a couple of less active members and investigators that I taught while I was there.  It was really nice to see all of them again! I have missed Den Haag.  That evening a member took us to dinner at Hard Rock Cafe in Amsterdam! We even got a little personal tour of Amsterdam.

Thursday we did a session at the temple and afterwards we went to Keukenhof.  That is a huge garden in the Netherlands with tons of tulips and it’s beautiful.  (See model shots above.)

We also had stake conference in Brussels this week on Saturday and Sunday.  There were tons of members there from Leuven and Eindhoven where I have served, so it was great to catch up with them and see how they are doing.

We have been so dang busy with our temple conference and stake conference that we didn't have much time to work in Geel this week.  But it sure has been a blast! This next week will have a lot more time to work in our city.   What a blessing it was to be able to visit the temple this week.  I am very grateful for the temple and the blessings that we receive from it.  We are blessed to have a temple that we can visit in our mission.  Have a lovely week!
