August 1, 2011
Hey it was great hearing from you all this week! Yes, we are officially moved into our new apartment and it is beautiful! It is a two story apartment and fairly new. We live right outside the city in a suburb called Diemen. I cannot believe that James has already started two a days. In a month, my friends will all be sophomores in college! SO crazy to think about. We spent most of the time this week moving and tearing apart the old apartment and managed to get some time in to do missionary work. We had a couple of really good appointments and there was a baptism in the ward this week! Her name is Natalie and the other elders were teaching her. We have a baptism scheduled next week for Manu and we are super excited for him. I just pray that we can prepare him enough for his baptismal interview in time and not have to push the date back. Norway and the US debt crisis is all you hear about. The Dutch love Americans as long as they aren't snobby. Relations between the two countries are very good and the people respect the Americans that are friendly back. They love it when you speak to them in their own language of course. I loved the pictures! I just can't believe that the summer is already over, holy cow. Mom, remember our trip to Utah - the drive back? Haha, I will always remember that for sure. The weather has been absolutely beautiful this week. It's clear blue sky and about 23ºC We had Zone conference this week and met with the President with 50 other missionaries. It was quite nice! I'm excited to hear about James and his experiences. All they have to do is read and pray, we can't trick anybody. God tells the truth so we can always go to Him for answers. It's that simple. Oh trouwens, mijn nieuwe adres is:
1112 ED, Diemen
