God Made You Special

Hello Friends

Tilburg is a cool city. It's smaller than Antwerpen, but bigger than all my other cities, the branch is awesome, and Zr. Cowles is fun. She is my first comp that is not younger than me. We were actually in the same MTC group, so we know each other and that is fun. It's such a breeze to work with someone who is your same mission age. You both know what's up and just go to work. 
We already have a baptism date for next week, so that is just nifty to walk into. She is a cute middle-age woman from Columbia named Aida. She was scared to get baptized because she thought it was in a big swimming pool, and she can't swim, haha so we let her practice yesterday after church. 

This is my first area where there is a lot going on, and it's neat to see how quick the work is going here. These sisters have worked really hard to get it going, because Zr. Cowles and Zr. Fredrickson were actually the first sisters in Tilburg, so that makes me the third. I hope that we can see lots of miracles and just enjoy this 10th transfer of our mission. :)

I am super into writing inspiring things down in my big notebook lately, so I'll share some thoughts with you:
"Above all, never lose faith in your Father in heaven, who loves you more than you can comprehend." -Elder Holland

"Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us." Romans 5:1-5

God made you special, and He loves you very much. :)
