Dankbaar dag en mijn verjaardag :))

Hoi iedereen!! Hoe gaat het met jullie?? Ik ben super goed!!! Deze week has geweldig zijn :D Tuesday marked my 5 months as a missionary, which was so crazy. I feel like I just left. I don't think I'm already 5 months into this journey but here we are haha :)  Thursday was Thanksgiving! We ate with two families in our ward, and it was so fun. The food was amazing and it was just so wholesome. One family had smoked turkey and oh MAN it was delicious. I could eat it for days.  We've been doing a lot of tracting and other finding this week. We went to knock on one door of someone who's record we had. We got up to the door and heard really loud music from the other side, it sounded like somone was singing karaoke..... we stood there on the front porch looking at each other, like should we knock..? We decided not to, and just walked awkwardly down the sidewalk... we circled around the block, knocking a few doors, and tried to go back. He was still singing away. So... we decid

5 months tomorrow???

Hallo jullie!! Hoe gaat het met jullie?? My week has been good! We've been plugging along at that good old missionary work :) We had our district activity today! It was a lot of fun. We had Thanksgiving dinner together. The elders brought me a cake because they knew I was a little sad about not going to the Netherlands.... tell me that's not the sweetest thing ever. 😭 ...they also bought a flag thinking it was the Netherlands flag? It wasn't, but now I have a new flag to add to my Netherlands and Belgium flags!! We have been doing a lot of finding this week. We got a referral from the Spanish elders, who's super cute and really interested!! I'm excited to start meeting with her and helping her work towards baptism :) we served at the farm again this week too! I forgot to mention this last week but we were there on the day we passed 100,000 pounds of donated produce for this year! That's the best they've done ever. It's awesome because they've realiz

Mission tour and ZoneCon!!

Hoi jullie! Holy wow this week has been nuts. We had a mission tour with a member of the seventy. We had a lot of meetings, including zone conference! It was a lot of fun. We got a lot of cool revelation. I was able to recite our missionary purpose in excellent Dutch in front of everyone at zonecon so that was pretty cool haha :) I'm not going to the Netherlands in two weeks... Which is sad. Not super surprising, but sad. There are missionaries flying out the beginning of December that have their flight plans. And odds are I won't be leaving then because I don't have any flight plans. I'll probably stay in Virginia until the end of December or January. Which is ok! I still love it here, and the Netherlands will be there when I get there haha :) ...Our friend that wanted to get baptized no longer wants to get baptized. She told us never to call her again and got up and walked out of the lesson. It was pretty dramatic. And heartbreaking, honestly... I just want everyone t


Hallo iedereen! Hope everyone has had an amazing week!! My week has been pretty good. I'm adjusting more to my companions, their personalities, and the way they do missionary work. So that's been really good :) Sister Taylor and I were making dinner this week and started talking about country swing dancing! I have been a few times with my friend, but by all means am still a beginner. We definitely started swing dancing in the kitchen though, and it was so much fun!  We've had some very Spirit-led nights lately. Last night was really cool because as we were praying about where to go, the name of a less-active sister in our ward popped into my head. We'd just tried to stop by the night before but I felt like we should go back. We were able to catch her at home and get to know her for a while! It was awesome to be such an instrument in the Lord's hands. :) Then we headed over to the house of a referral we haven't been able to get in contact with either. But Sis Tay

Trio time pt 1

Hallo jullie!! It's been another week! I've been adjusting to the trio life, and it's been quite the adjustment. A few quick things from this week!  - We found 3 new friends! That's been pretty cool to be a part of!  - We planted 30 trees at Clifton this weekend, it was fun!  - My companions love how open the sky is! The amount of joy and happiness they feel brings more joy into my life :) Hope you have all had a good week! Don't forget to pray. The Lord will hear your cries, whether they're metaphorical or literal. The church is true!! I'm so grateful to be a part of the Gathering of Israel! Love, Sister Weaver
