As of this week I have been out for 8 months! That means my missionary baby is almost about to be delivered (not an actual baby of course). This week has been another exciting in week in good ole' Suriname, wan moi kondre! So back to Nam; this week we were able to meet with a Sister H, she's from Guyana and is less-active, hadn't been to church in a while but she came to church this week! Elder Lewis was saying how if we could just sit with her she'd go to church, he was right! She said she liked the good feelings we brought as we taught. One time an investigator was telling us how much she loved having the missionaries over because she could feel the room change and things seemed to get brighter! This week we played sports with the Elder's Quorum, it was pretty fun (Surinamese people play dirty) so as we were playing basketball the ground was kind of slippery from a water dirt combo and was slippery like ice. Elder Lewis was over there and slipped and banged his head on the ground, he came up pretty fast but the goose egg on his head was pretty big! We got some ice for it and he was good, he's all healed up now! I'm excited to finally get my hair cut, it's starting to evolve from your average lawn bush to Harry Potter magical maze! Side note, the branch president's daughter likes to call me Elder Longbottom, after Nevil Longbottom, it'd be funny if I could get a name tag with Elder Longbottom on it! On Friday we headed over to Rainville so Elder Lewis could give the Sisters' investigator a baptismal interview. While he was doing that I was following along with the sisters' lesson with an investigator in the family. At one point Sister Walsh asked me to join in and Sister Jorgensen asked me to talk more about prayer. It felt weird teaching with sister missionaries, fun though! They taught a pretty good lesson, they thought it was funny how I related my experience, like I was watching "the district" (missionary training videos, pretty much).
Sunday was heel leuk omdat een van onze onderzoekers, "Kolif" was daar! Hij was ook daar de geheel tijd! Harold(tje) was heel belangrijk met de situatie omdat hij had hem gevraagd om te blijven! Het was heel leuk, na kerk, wij hadden met hem gesproken en hij had gezegd dat hij wilt meer vaak te komen! I hoop dat hij zal dat doen!
Zo dat is alles voor dit week broeders en zusters, van daag ik will met twee leuk versen die ik had gevonden! Het is Het Boek van Mormon in Ether 12:6-7
6 En nu wil ik, Moroni, iets zeggen over die dingen; ik wil de wereld tonen dat geloof datgene is waarop men hoopt maar dat men niet ziet; daarom, betwist niet omdat gij niet ziet, want gij ontvangt geen getuigenis dan na de beproeving van uw geloof.
 7 Want het was door geloof dat Christus Zich aan onze vaderen toonde nadat Hij uit de doden was opgestaan; en Hij toonde Zich pas aan hen nadat zij geloof in Hem hadden; daarom moeten sommigen van hen wel geloof in Hem hebben gehad, want Hij toonde Zich niet aan de wereld.

In English: 

6 And now, I, Moroni, would speak somewhat concerning these things; I would show unto the world that faith is things which are hoped for and not seen; wherefore, dispute not because ye see not, for ye receive no witness until after the trial of your faith.

7 For it was by faith that Christ showed himself unto our fathers, after he had risen from the dead; and he showed not himself unto them until after they had faith in him; wherefore, it must needs be that some had faith in him, for he showed himself not unto the world.
Hope you all have a good week!
