This week we spent a lot of time doing langst de deur, or knocking. Haha, we met a lot of interesting people this way! It was really cool too because we actually got an appointment with someone!!!! Usually people say “geen interest” as soon as we start talking about God, but his one person actually got excited! They were like “yeah, I believe in God too!” and said a bunch of other positive things I couldn’t understand in Dutch. We’re very excited to go meet with them this week!
Since we’ve been doing a lot of contacing and knocking doors, we’ve been trying to get more creative. This week we drew the plan of salvation out in chalk at the park to try and draw people’s attention. We didn’t time it right, so there weren’t a ton of people there to see it. But we’re going to try it again this week at a busier time 🙂 It was really fun to do though!
This week we also met with one of the less actives in the ward. She took us out to lunch AND she spoke english, which was great 🙂 During lunch, Zus. Abbott accidentally bumped the table, and the whole thing dumped into my lap! I thought it was hilarious, but Zus. Abbott was mortified! Luckily we didn’t have our food yet, so it was just all our drinks 🙂 Haha, it was super funny!
On P-day last week we visited the Vrouw Kerk, which is this huge cathedral that stands in the center of Breda! It was really cool to walk around and listen to the organ music inside. We’re planning on climbing up the tower another day with one of our less actives who expressed interest in it. I think it will be really fun!
Wonderen and Grappias (Miracles and funny things):
. This week our one investigator came to church! Haha, our one investigator right now doesn’t speak dutch, only english! I’m torn because it’s so much easier to teach in english, but I want to learn dutch! Haha, I think it’s a blessing for me right now though 🙂
. It turns out the less active we were having lunch with was drinking alchohol! We didn’t realize it until we were washing my skirt (from all the drinks spilling on it) and it smelled kind of odd…
. Me and my companion have managed to finish off her 5 lb bag of chocolate from Belgium in the last 2 weeks! #noregrets
. We got lost in Breda for like 3 hours on Saturday! This is what happens when I’m in charge of the map 🙂
. I’ve discovered that my hair gets super curly in this humid weather! I don’t have to do anything to it!
Ik houd van jullie!
love, Zuster Mangum
