Not too much happened this week, but here’s a list of the Wonderen en Grappias:
. I got to go on exchanges to Haarlem this week with Zuster Conrad! It was super fun! We spent most of the day in this dorpia called Zandvoort. The weather was also BEAUTIFUL and we didn’t need our coats for a couple of hours! While we were knocking we also met this 91 year old woman. She was half blind and couldn’t really hear anything, but super nice and let us in! We ended up talking to her for a while and then walking her around the block (she can’t go alone because she can’t see anything). She was super sweet! We tried to talk about religion, but she really couldn’t hear anything we were saying lol 🙂 It was really fun to spend a little time with her and just keep her company 🙂
. We went LDD in Wassenaar this week to a bunch of english speaking houses. It was awesome! English people here are so nice! They all chatted with us a little bit, and one old man even gave us a hug lol! He was like “Just keep doing what you’re doing!” Wow, what a moral booster! Haha, me and Zuster Perkinson were like “Man, we could do a state side mission!” Plus, one house we knocked the babysitter was actually the one interested! She wants to meet sometime, so we’re excited about that!
. One of the recent converts we are helping with her family history is finally able to take her names to the temple this week!!! We’ve been trying to track down her membership number and a bunch of other things, so we’re all really excited that it’s all worked out! She could not be happier!
. We had interviews with the Bunnells this week, which is always great! I love them!
. We went to our investigator’s house this week and made Poffertjes! (google them) They’re like little baby pancakes that you make in this special pan. They were soo good and I definitely ate way to many of them 🙂
. A lot of members have invited us for dinner with our investigator this week, so that’s going to be fun!
. We were at Zuster Van Der Scheer’s house this week for our taal les, and one of her cats just walked over, and threw up right in front of us! It was pretty nasty and smelled like tuna (TMI:) Haha, but I still love going to her house!
. We ended up playing Settlers of Catan with some members and the investigators after church yesterday! It was a lot of fun, and a good opportunity for the investigators to meet some of the members one on one in a less formal situation 🙂
This week was wonderful! I love missionary work and the chance I have every day to serve those around me!
Ik hou van jullie! Fijne week!
Liefs, Zuster Mangum
.I spent a good amount of p-day creating ‘The Cruesli Wall’. It’s pretty much all our cruesli boxes artistically displayed on one of our walls 🙂
. One of my favorite little dutch houses in Zoetermeer!
