Tired, but Happy

Elder Lott - Antwerp

So I don't have very much to say from this week, other than that I am very, very, very tired, and it feels awesome!  We had a really busy week, with quite a few things pulling us away from working in our own area which was a little sad, but it will all pay off. One of those things was driving up to the mission home for mission leader council. We received trainings from President and the assistants like always, and the transfer focus for this transfer is going to be on chapter 2 of Preach My Gospel, entitled "How do I study effectively and prepare to teach".  I am so happy this is going to be the focus because it has been such a blessing on my mission learning how to truly study-feasting from the word of God- and how when we give ourselves up in the service and preparation of others the Lord can grant us access to the hearts of those whom we are preparing to teach/help.  All these things can help us to 'hold fast to the iron rod' rather then simply 'cling to the iron rod' that god has given us. To lead and to guide us back to Him, and to the ultimate expression of his love for us, his son Jesus Christ.

Along with that we spent some time this week preparing zone training, which is looking to be really good, hopefully as good as the last one we had!

I love you all, hope that you have a good week!

Question of the Week:  King’s Feast (Dag van de Dynastie) is to celebrate Belgium's king.  Is it as big as Koningsdag in the Netherlands?

Answer:  No, the King's Feast isn't nearly as big of a holiday as Koningsdag in the Netherlands.

Belgian Driveway to an Estate
We ended up getting a referral in a super rich drop (town) with super nice houses.
This driveway was probably 400-500 meters long and just gorgeous.
