Week 58/102: maandag 4 juli email van Elder Meads

This week in Vlissingen...
Hello everyone, let's dive right into my week, and see what we can find.

Monday: we enjoyed our P-day emailing and not having time to shop, but dressed in missionary clothes and went to a dinner appointment with an investigator.  The coolest part about this week is that we had a lot of investigator meals which totaled our dinner appointments to every day this week! YEA!  Well,  the guy we had a lesson and meal with is a cook by trade, so we ate fish, potatoes, and salad, and freak it was GOOD!  I haven't had fish like that since almost 2 years ago exactly.  It was literally a fish, with it's head chopped off, and cooked.  My favorite food is fish for a reason.

Tuesday:  We went to District Meeting which was 'okay'.  Nothing spectacular I don't think.  I went on exchanges with the Elders to Roosendaal which was fun, and the Elder with me had served in Vlissingen before, so he had an amazing time eating with the Members and just generally enjoying his last area again.

Wednesday: Today we got into contact with a really cool less active in the ward.  The missionary I was on exchanges with told me I HAVE to get into contact with her again because she's so promising.  Well, she had us over for dinner and we learned a bit more about her and her situation.  Right at the begin of our appointment, she got a phone call saying that her dad had died, and the awkwardness was real.  I tried my best to consolidate her, but I could tell she just wanted to finish entertaining guests and sit and think.  I felt pretty bad...

Thursday: We spent the day doing look-ups and the sort.  We eventually ended with dinner at a members house that we have most every week, and this week was really fun as usual.  Their son has just gotten interviewed by the Stake President so he can turn in his mission papers!  Exciting!

Friday: We had service with some investigators, but it began to rain, so we barely began before they called us in for drinks and tarts.  I enjoyed an apple tart and apple juice while we talked about family history.  I have to be careful since they don't want to investigate the church, but I think it's nice to still do service for them.  We ended the day by going to a member for dinner who is so against the newly enforced hour rule, that I didn't dare say anything, but rather just went through the appointment.  Don't worry, we were out in an hour.

Saturday: We started the day off with having a member from some far off branch or ward come and replace all of our smoke detectors, C02 detectors, and so forth.  The day continued with some look-ups and ended with dinner with another investigator.  I had made a pretty large lunch this day of spaghetti, so I was still fairly full, but this lady was so kind and insisted I have a huge plate of food.  So I did, and by the time I finished, I was pretty contently full. She asked if I wanted 2nd's and I politely declined, but she insisted twice, and I didn't want to be rude, so I ate another plate.  Well, She asked again once I finished that one, and I was a little more forceful with my no's, but her demands were too demanding!  I somehow through the grace of the almighty alone chewed pass a third plate.  I was absolutely stalwart on her following attempts to fatten me up since I felt sick to my stomach and my belly felt like iron.  She gave us a dessert and demanded that we eat that as well.  By the time I left that appointment, I was rolling away wishing that I could just blip out of existence until I had digested.

Sunday:  We had a visiting German family come to church today while on vacation.  They were very welcome since Testimony meeting in a branch pretty much forces you to bear your testimony since it gets down to the point where literally everyone else has gotten up except you, and they're all patiently waiting.  I taught the Sunday school lesson to some german girls which was a lot of fun because I could understand their german!  (they both didn't speak any dutch, and only very rudimentary English).  We had lunch by a member and finished the week with an appointment with one of our more mentally unstable investigators which is always an adventure I guess.

thanks guys for the emails, I enjoy reading about your lives!
