Don’t have much time this week so I will just share the highlights.
Wednesday we had zone training which is our 4 hour training session for President Bunnell and the zone and it was fantastic. Elder Abankie and Zuster Manning had killer presentations and mine went well too. It was a lot of fun and we all learned quite a bit.
Thursday, cool miracle, we met with a single mother member originally from the Middle East with her daughter and sister, who is not a member. We ate together and had family home evening in which Neda, the mother, expressed to us her sickness right now with depression and everything she has going on right now because child services is trying to take away her 9 year old daughter Victoria. We were able to give all three of them blessings because the daughter and sister had a few health and stress problems as well. It was amazing to see the Spirit work in each of them, showing their faith in the Priesthood, even for Neda´s sister Nasmi who isn´t a member. She wasn´t open to take a Book of Mormon or learn much more because she has done it before and said it wasn´t for her. At least not yet.
Saturday we got a surprise trip to the temple! President told Elder Abankie that he should go 3 times before going home where there isn´t a temple so we went! Soooo nice to receive that Spirit and guidance for missionary work after having 6 months without it.
We had a rap in our zone training Wednesday and while we practiced a member came in and heard me playing a random made up beat and asked me to play it in sacrament meeting Sunday. I told him it wasn’t a song and he said o ok it doesn’t matter.
I thought they would forget. Yeah they didn’t. So yesterday in church I had a musical number with no number and just improvised come thou fount to random chords? Pulled it of somehow and everyone loved it haha
Transfers are Wednesday and abankie is staying! Super crazy because this is his 5th transfer here so 7.5 months in Apeldoorn. We didn’t expect it. Morrell went to be a zone leader in Rotterdam which I know he will love.
That’s about it in short
Here is our classic on our way to the temple selfie
