|She might be having too much fun!|
Guess who has been out 9 months of the 18 month mission?
Oh, Zr Packer too...
We might be freaking out a lot. It is crazy how fast time has gone by! And as everyone has told us... "It's only down hill from here.." Yikes!
This week was fairly good, but I have to admit I've been pretty sick. It's looking pretty bronchitis-y but the cough hasn't really hit yet. More of a cold and whole lot of annoyance when I try to breathe. I've been sleeping a lot, and doing everything Zr Robinson and the Doctor in Germany tell me to, so hopefully it goes away soon. Definitely makes it annoying to do missionary work.
This week we got stranded out in the middle of nowhere trying to look up a few inactive members. We found both of them, and they were home and open to our visit. Just not right then... So it was good and tiring because that meant a lot of train/bus time. We will have to find time to look them up again soon.
We had a really good lesson with M this week! We talked about scripture study, prayer, and church attendance. And the spirit was SO strong! We read through most of Alma 32 with him and talked about how it applies to him, and it was truly just incredible to see the spirit teach him personally. What was even cooler? He made it to church yesterday, and LOVED it. Not only that, but the ward ate him right up! So it was a really exciting day! He is excited for our appointment tonight. Hopefully it still goes well, because this one is word of wisdom :P
Another miracle of the week was M. Our favorite less active :) She was surprised to see that I was here one more transfer! And we had a really great dinner with her and her boys. She was so sweet and open with us as usual, and we shared some mormon messages with her. That invited the spirit really strong and we asked if she would come to church. She wants to but kept talking herself out of it... Well during sacrament meeting, right as the bishop began testimonies, she walked in. I have never been so excited in my life! She and her boys squished in next to me and she just grabbed right on to my hand. I was so excited to see her there, and her boys loved church! It was truly a blessing and as she was leaving she said she will be seeing us again. Hopefully next week!
|All this mom can say is WHAT?!?!?!?|
P is getting better and made it to church this week! And S got to pass the sacrament this week as well!!! So over all a lot of miracles. Made for a really great "hump day" despite being sick as a dog :)
That is all for this week! I have lots of pictures though, from kinderdijk, M's boys,... And since we have been out 9 months, pregnancy photos are a must. Geniet ervan!
Ik hou van jullie!
Liefs, Z Packer
