The first adventure was when we went to Bruges (Brugge) last p=day. There were so many tourists! I heard American English just casually on the street, and it just shocked me. But it was cool because a couple of members of the church who were on vacation approached us to say hi and encourage us to keep up the great work. I love those little moments! We enjoyed walking around touring the beautiful city, taking pictures with the many gorgeous buildings... We also bought chocolate/chocolate covered strawberries, well worth it. The Lokeren sisters and Leuven elders were also there, so we got to enjoy the city at different times with them as well.
I think one of the coolest moments of that day was on our way home, we sat down in a train and the lady across from us asked us a question about our nametags. We started talking with her, and then the lady next to her joined the conversation, and soon the man across the aisle was participating as well! We all enjoyed a pleasant hour chatting about the differences between America and Belgium, religion and how it is culturally regarded here, and we were able to share what we believe, because they were asking us questions! It was a big testimony to me that there are missionary opportunities everywhere, and we are definitely always missionaries, even on our preparation day.
