Comeback Kid

Hoi!  [Hi!]

This week in short, we spent a lot of time in the car traveling around.  It was good though, we got to see a lot of the people in the zone, help them out and go to some places that are close to my heart.  With the attacks from a month or so ago and travel limitations on missionaries, most people have had to stay pretty close to their apartments working and haven't been able to go many places or see other missionaries.  So this week we decided to go on a couple exchanges with people who haven't been able to see other missionaries recently.  Ranging anywhere from splits with the Antwerpen Elders to exchanges down in Kortrijk.  That was a lot of fun, and we saw a lot of good things and hopefully were able to help the zone out and make some personal progression.

Also, this Sunday because of renovations happening to the Antwerpen church building we had to go to church somewhere else in Belgium, so of course we went down to Leuven!  So good!  It was so great to see everybody from that ward, I love them so much.  They've meant a lot to my mission.  

That combined with other miracles made this week fantastic.  Like the fact that we got a call from an old investigator (from like a year or more ago) who was on track to be baptized until she learned she wasn't living some of the commandments she needed to be to get baptized. Then she went on vacation and lost contact with the missionaries.  But those changes that needed to happen in her life have happened and she called us up for an appointment and wants to get baptized!  Super cool.  

The Lord loves and is mindfull of us.  The blessings of living the gospel are big and far out weigh anything in the way of obtaining them.

Question of the week:  Do you often see boot scrapers on the sides of old buildings (for mud or snow)?

Answer:  Yes, I see them all the time here in Belgium, and especially when I was serving in Breda and traveling around Dutch Brabant.  Not so much in North or South Holland.  They range from super decorative, to heavy duty boot cleaners you see sometimes out in farms.
