New Digs - August 24, 2015

To follow the previous pattern of emails of insanity to mediocrity, this week we had quite the steady paced week. Who knows what is going to happen starting today then ha-ha

We had transfer day Wednesday and so Elder Abankie and I were in the train station all day in Rotterdam and Utrecht. It’s always nuts trying to transfer missionaries around and outside of the country. This last one was massive too and only 4 companionships stayed put. Tons of moves.

Right away we had to start tackling zone things and worked on planning the last couple days. We illustrated up a zone vision working on teaching skills, got it printed and made, fixed the car, had a counsel with the district leaders and zuster training leader, and taught a few lessons in between.

Apeldoorn is fantastic. So pretty in the late summer. We are next to a huge forest so we have trees and hills which is opposite of Vlissingen with the flat beaches. Very very cool place. A good size city too. 

Church went well but it is soooo different than Vlissingen. I miss it there. Here we have 7 missionaries and 4 new ones so coming in you are kind of just another face or elder. They love us and take care of us but we meant so much to everyone in Vlissingen and they loved us and wanted to always have us over. Small adjustment but I still got to get to know them all then it will be exactly the same. The ones I know so far are HILARIOUS. So sassy hahaha Dutch people kill me.

This week we have TONS of exchanges and a zone conference so it should keep us busy. I’m pumped because where we are is a place in Holland I have never seen before. And driving the car makes it nice too :)

Sorry this is a tad dull but giving a thorough analysis of our planning this last week would bore you to tears. 

Hope you all have a killer week. BACK TO SCHOOL.
