Still Here in Assen


Good last week of the transfer! We met the new mission president and wife, President and Sister Bunnell, and they are wonderful. I love them so much already. (phew! I was really so worried, cuz I loved the Robinsons) I can not imagine coming into a mission and suddenly being in charge of 150 missionaries in Europe and all that sort of thing. Ah. But they are doing well, and I'm excited about the change. 

News: There is progress! One of our investigators is on baptismal date, and is trying to stop smoking. I have never seen anything like this before. I can see him opening up a little more to us as we meet with him more often and as he reads in the Book of Mormon and tries to improve his life and find truth. It's incredible. I am so grateful! I am so grateful that God is letting me see the beginning of a miracle like this.

We had the singing elders concert "Journey With No End," on Saturday, and it was breathtaking. I was so worried that nobody we had invited would come, but guess what. They did! A wonderful part-member family and then a non-member couple that we do service for. Oh, I was so thrilled. They loved it, and they felt the Spirit and the missionaries were happy. I am so excited to see where things are going to go from here!

In case you were wondering about the weather (I've noticed that I mention weather a lot), it's pouring outside.

I love you all! 
And happy birthday today to my most beautiful wonderful mother! Wouldn't be here without you. :)
