Week 024/ 102: maandag 9 november e-mail van Elder Meads

Everyone, welcome to another week’s email!

Assen is small and we don't have tons to sight see, and a new rule says we have to pay with personal money any traveling we do on P-day, so that means we stay put. The next transfer is December 21st, and I'll most likely be leaving or getting another companion. We don't want to travel because it's too expensive, and I'll eventually see De Nederland. Just to go halfway through the Netherlands is around 50 euro for there and back, just too expensive to even begin to justify. Maybe I’ll be transferred a lot more in the future and get to see more, but for now I’m in farmlands and the city of Assen. Nice place and nice people!

So in Meads' corner this week, I made some lekker bread! That's right. Made bread. What am I, a sister missionary??? No, just the most home-making Elder to ever live and breath - ladies. Actually I made two loaves of bread this week, and the first was really quite awful. Hard as a rock, and we found out why - I forgot to use yeast. Yea, we ate it anyway because we're ravenous wolves, but I attempted this again on Wednesday, and I've gotta say, it was really freaking delicious! Soft on the inside which made you picture yourself falling into a swimming pool of soft, heated towels. Weird image- I know- but roll with it. The crust though was hard as a rock, but pretty good as well. It was a good contrast to the wonderful insides.

Other than that, we taught some investigators a RAD =Restoration and Doop (Which means baptism in dutch), and then also a Gospel of Jesus Christ to another investigator family! They were both well received and I can't wait for this following week full of more bread making and teaching.

As far as investigators and the work goes, we had a lot planned this week, but a lot canceled, and this coming week isn't looking too great as a lot of our appointments are canceled already! :,( Looks like we're to the basics of missionary work and knocking doors and talking to people. Oh well. We did however have the first lesson with our brand new, flirt to convert investigator, Channe Visscher. She is the girl Elder Torniainen spoke to/ flirted with on the bus, and he WAS the ONLY one doing the flirting, don't worry ;) She was a little bit bashy, but nothing too extreme, she said she'd be baptized if she found these things to be true. Harp doesn't like her too much because she is a little Bible bashy, but she honestly seems just curious as she comes from another faith, so when she references that 'Don't add to the bible' scripture in revelations, it just her quoting what she’s been taught. Oh well, right? We all need to learn that there’s more of God’s truth found beyond the Old and New Testaments.

I have to give a talk this coming up Sunday in church, and I can't remember what about, but I'll pull through. It has to be 10 minutes long in Dutch. it'll be my 2nd talk given in the field which is actually really cool. Another cool thing I have is the opprotunity to give the sacrament prayer in Dutch. Really that is COOL.

Time is up, email you all next week. Ttyl, love you guys! -Elder Meads

2nd attempt as you can infer:

This one is great.  On exchanges in Emmen with Elder Croft, he rapped on the spot while we biked.
