trio timeeee

Hallo iedereen!!  Seven days have once again come to pass. Haha. But yeah, it's been another week! And a good one! We had a church tour this week with our friend Teddy!! He LOVED it, it was so much fun!!! We're definitely going to get him to church soon ;) We had our ward trunk or treat this past Saturday! It was the best trunk or treat I've ever been to. There were a bunch of cute carnival games set up, and the YW put on a haunted house. Plus the trunk or treat! Sister Rogers and I dressed up as angels, and we were adorable.  I got my visa stuff turned in!! I was waiting for one more thing to be delivered. It got misplaced at the mission office, so it was very much a tender mercy that we were able to find it so I could get it all gathered and sent in. Now we just wait for the official word on visas, then the official flight plan... I'm supposed to leave a month from yesterday! and four weeks from tomorrow!! Ahhh it's nuts. I'm so excited, but so nervous. And al

Méér pompoenen??

Hoi jullie :) How is everyone?? I hope y'all are doing splendidly!! It's been a good week here in Manassas! We were able to meet with Ev again Monday night! She said she still wants to get baptized!!!! So that's awesome :) We're going to slow down a little and focus on the little things, like prayer and scripture study. If you have a basic testimony foundation, you'll get through so much. (And also--if your testimony is struggling with something, just do the thing. It's really the only way to gain a testimony of that!) Ian is doing well too!! Hopefully he'll be able to make it to church again one of these days, he has a hard time getting work off.  We had interviews this week with President and Sister Crankshaw!! They are amazing, I love them so much. We spent Thursday up north working on more visa stuff! I had a doctors appointment, got my fingerprints taken, and spent another 2 hours at the mission office working on visa stuff. We left the mission office,


I'M GOING TO THE NETHERLANDS!!!!!!!! Hallo iedereen :) It's been a good week hehe :) So first things first--I got an email about starting my visa stuff this week!! And my estimated departure date is November 24th!!!!! The day before Thanksgiving, also 5 days before my birthday haha.... :) Happy birthday to meee i'm going to the Netherlandsssss :D I was not expecting the email at all. I've been trying to focus on the work here in Virginia and not be too worried about leaving. I figured it'd be another few months, at least. But suddenly I'm just hoping I'll make it to Zone conference next transfer! I'm so excited to go, but I'm so sad to leave... I've made so many amazing friends. But there will be amazing people wherever you go! (I just have to remember that haha ;)) so yay!!!! nederlands :D That was the biggest thing to happen this week. It was kind of a big thing, so yeah that's fun haha :D I spent a good two hours at the mission office on T

Zone conferentie EN algemene conferentie??

First of all, general conference was amazing!! I loved the focus on covenants and temples. I want to gain a better understanding of the covenants I've made. I loved the talk by Elder Dunn about making small but steady improvements. It takes patience but it definitely works! It's something I needed to hear for my language study. I wish I could say I was always happy and excited to study Dutch... but small and steady improvements are all you need ;) I also loved Elder Uchtdorf's talk that was in a similar strain of thought. If we don't focus on consistent, daily repentance and improvement, our life can get way off course! I LOVED the simple process he gave us to change our lives! If you want to change your life, change your day. If you want to change your day, change your hour. You gotta act now! The only thing holding you back is you and how you use your agency! All of conference was so good. I loving hearing the words of our prophets! The church is true!! We also had zo
