'Een hele bos werk' 💇‍♀️

Hallo iedereen!! I got a haircut this week from our RS president -- she commented on how thick my hair was, saying it was a whole lot of work 😂 But she also said it was very healthy, shout out to my mom for helping me there haha! This week was so good! We were really busy and had a lot of fun.  - We recorded the audio to our music video! It always takes way longer than you think it will haha. We're recording the video for it this Thursday and I'm pretty excited! - We went to our RS activity! We took a little road trip around Friesland, visiting all the kleine dorpjes (the little towns) to see more of the countryside! It was so fun, I love our RS :) - We did exchanges with the sisters in our district!! Zr Dunford en Zr Packard came and spent the day with me in Leeuwarden. So much fun!!!  - We made a new friend this week named Andrea!! We've met with her 4 times in the past week. She's so excited to learn and has so many questions!! She's told us so many times that s


God is goed, that's all I have for this week :)) BUT we'll go into a little more depth: - We had interviews with my mission president and his wife this week!! SO good, I love them :) - I GOT MY CELLOOOOO it made me so happy - I'm part of a music video now with my cello, so that's taking up all our time this week. I've literally never arranged anything before so it kind of stretched my musical abilities. But I didn't realize how much I missed playing with other people 😭 there's this certainly feeling you only get playing music with other people. I haven't had that feeling this much my entire mission. It made me so happy. We were sitting there playing and I was just grinning because it felt so good to play with people again!! And to play the cello again. Ahhh. Just God is goed, dat is alles. - We've had lots of service with our members recently, which has been so good! I love them so much. I feel like I might be leaving at the transfer, which breaks m

avondetens, dienstbetoon, en een zegening!

Hallo iedereen!! Ik heb de sterkste verlang om deze hele email in Nederlands te schrijven--maar ik weet dat meestal van jullie zullen het niet begrijpen, dus ik zal het in Engels doen. Helaas lol :) - We had 5 meals with members this week!! I've never had that on my mission before. It was kind of amazing.  - We went with one of my favorite members to her patriarchal blessing!! It was amazing. Even being in the same house when she was getting it had the strongest spirit. :) and I just love her, so it's awesome haha :)) included the best Chinese food I've ever had afterwards, so that was fun haha. I tried ginger ice cream and was pleasantly surprised!! - I made PB cookies out of 4 ingredients. They were good, probably won't try it again though. I've had better :/ 😂  - We went to two castles/museums last week for Pday!! It was way fun. - We had a lesson with our friend from last week! Her whole family was there which was awesome. ...but also her neighbor, who wa

a cello...??

Hallo iedereen! - We drove to Den Haag this week!! Instead of thinking things through, we accidentally added 4 hours onto our drving that day... Not the smartest decision, but the Lord's work gets done in spite of missionaries who don't always know what they're doing haha! 😅 - We had zone conference this week with Elder Kopischke from the seventy! We talked about the Book of Mormon and how important it is. It really has so much power!! If you haven't read it in a while, please go pick it up. Just one verse can change your day :) - I played a musical number in zone conference!! I normally go into musical numbers hoping they go perfectly. This one, I just went in with the desire to bring in the Spirit. That was it. And wow--I've never felt this way while playing a piece. It was really special and very spiritual. (And it still sounded really good, so that made me happy too ;) ) - We found THREE new people to teach this week!! That's a new record for me!!! One of o
