I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas yesterday! I know I did! It was so great to be able to skype my family and hear from them! It was really the best Christmas present ever! We also had a big Gourmet at Dave’s house that night (ward mission leader). For dinner we cooked our assorted meats on these grills right on the dinner table! You threw in peppers, mushrooms, onions, etc. It was soooo good!
This last Monday for P-day we went to Delft with the district. It was really fun to walk around this older city full of canals. We also went into an old church (literally, it’s called the Oude Kerk) that’s leaning! It sunk awhile back, and so now it kinda looks like the leaning tower of pisa 🙂 It was really beautiful inside, just full of stained glass windows! We also hit some tourist shops while we were in Delft as well and bought some Delft blue pottery that they’re famous for.
We also, as a district, went caroling in Den Haag Central Station! I played the piano while everyone else sang Christmas songs! It was really fun! A couple of people actually stopped and filmed us too, so that was cool! Haha, towards the end of our singing we actually had this drunk guy come and join us too lol. Now THAT was funny, him was just belting out Christmas songs and drinking his alcohol! 🙂
This week me and Zuster Perkinson have just been visiting a lot of less actives, investigators, recent converts, and people in the ward. We’ve made cookies, dropped of notes and candy canes, and even caroled a little bit! It was cool because yesterday we were able to pull off the alto/soprano to ‘Silent Night” at the door. Haha, it wasn’t the greatest, but the harmony sounded good 🙂
I am so grateful for the chance I have to be a missionary, especially during the Christmas season! I love the chance we have to celebrate Christ! I have a testimony that Jesus Christ lives and that through Him, we can find redemption, joy and eternal life!
Ik hoop dat jullie allemaal een prettige feestdagen hebben! Ik hou van jullie!
Liefs, Zuster Mangum
