This blog is for family and friends who wish to following Trevan as he sacrifices his time and talents to go forth and teach the Gospel in the Belgium/Netherlands Mission for the next two years.

Tulpen Koppen - May 9, 2016

Most of the stories were told yesterday during Skype calls, but I thought to send out a short email with the pictures anyway.

It was a hot, humid week. Perfect for the tulips but not missionaries. We stumbled across a local tulip festival last Pday and this last Saturday we went to a member´s tulip farm and plucked the tops of tulips for 3 hours in the sun. It was so much fun but it kills your back and hammys after so long. But check that off the bucket list.

Braden got his mission call this weekend to SAMOA. So far the month we are home together we will probably watch The Best Two Years and The Other Side of Heaven 10 or more times. He´s gonna rock the lava lava.

We are headed to Amsterdam today to shop and see a museum. The train ride is nice too because you ride through fields and fields of tulips and windmills. I´ve learned I take the Dutch culture and landscape too much for granted sometimes.
The pictures are of us on the tulip farm, also a big tulip festival where people make mosiac art piece out of tulips and hang Dutch flags and flowers on everything. Makes it smell nice everywhere.

And also the local tulip garden.

Sorry for the boring email, but Skype drains your energy for talking about your life and memories.
