Transitions and Surfer Dudes

This was a week of transitions! We had transfers, so I've been working with Sister Hopkin since Wednesday and it has been awesome! We are a great team and excited for the upcoming transfer together!
First night of the transfer, dinner with the Romigs!
I love seeing people progress in the Gospel. One beautiful example is with an investigator who we have been meeting with for a couple of months now and his growing testimony of the Book of Mormon. He already loved the Bible, but as we have been reading with him he has discovered the blessings of this second witness of Christ, and now he reads it all the time on his own and tells us what he has learned. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that it is a powerful tool in bringing everyone closer to Christ!

We went to a special Family History Training in Leiden on Thursday morning and I am full of the Spirit of Elijah. It is so incredible to discover and feel connected to our ancestors. I am excited to help investigators and recent converts to experience that joy for themselves. There is so much work of salvation to be done for both the living and the dead, and it is such a blessing to participate.

In other random news, because we are so North here, it is light for a long time. For example, it is already super bright when we wake up at 6:30 am, and it is starting to stay light even until 10:30 when we go to bed. Craziness! on the other hand, it is June, and still really chilly. Go figure. #nederland

Other funny stories: I have seen multiple times a guy, in a wetsuit, carrying a surfboard- riding a bike through the middle of the city. No joke. The casual nederlander can do whatever he feels like while riding a bike...

Sister Hopkin and I had a cool insight during companionship study. Eternal punishment as spoken of in the scriptures doesn't actually mean punishment forever, but rather punishment from a being who is Eternal, God. We always make the distinction between immortality and eternal life, and that's because Eternal life is literally life with Eternal- Living forever with God. We thought that was pretty fascinating!
President and Sister Robinson leave this month - they will be missed!
A new investigator has a violin that he never uses and let me play it and loved hearing it used, since he can't play. So he offered to let me borrow it! I was so excited to play a violin again and actually ended up using it in a last minute musical number this past Sunday. Considering I haven't played in ten months, in turned out really nicely!

Life is good. I am loving Den Haag and spring is beautiful, the people are wonderful, and the work is going well. Ik ben dankbaar om op zending te zijn. Het is echt geweldig!
