I'm getting to the point where I am very out of exciting greetings.
Let's begin by stating the fact that Sister Manning and I are having a blast over here in Tilburg. :) With hard work and lots of laughs, we feel like the good ol MTC dream team. God is blessing us with lots of little miracles.
We had a stop-smoking party for one of our pals on Saturday, and he is going to try to not smoke for a whole week! We put lots of inspiring little posters all over his apartment and the zone leaders gave him an air freshener. We are so proud of him.
We also had a make-it-or-break-it lesson with a man who has been investigating for 7 years. He will either be baptized February 13, or uh, ya.
Our branch council inspired us yesterday by telling us how they are going to get the members more involved in missionary work. We are just livin the dream over here!
Cool Spirit moment: We got the random idea to go to this area we never go to, and the train was leaving in 5 minutes. We went, and only had half an hour to do whatever God needed us to before heading to an appointment. We started knocking some doors, got let in on the 3rd door, and found ourselves a fun new investigator. Isn't it crazy how God uses random thoughts to get us to accomplish cool things?
My favorite funny moment: Sister Manning did a complete rendition of Joseph and the Technicolor Dream Coat on our bike ride home the other night. You all missed out. What a "gem" she is. (she always says that word :) )
Sending you many happy thoughts and blessings,
