"Ik heb geen belangstelling, ik ga naar binnen." "Oké, fijne avond verder!"

Fawaka allemaal!

This was yet another fun filled week! We did a lot of walking around and talking with people this week, we realized that it's been 3 days since we've actually had an appointment with someone but today should change that up a bit! We also had a missionary broadcast this week which was really cool to watch, they talked a lot about repentance and the gospel of Jesus Christ and how the points (Through Jesus Christ we can be cleansed from sin, Faith, Repentance, Baptism, Receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost and Enduring to the end) aren't separate or to be filled as in a cookbook but they are all intertwined with each other!

We had an interesting lesson with a Dutch man named Frizo. We started our lesson with a prayer and he then explained to us that we were wasting our time and how he just wasn't religious. We read Alma 18 from the Book of Mormon with him, in that chapter a man name Ammon is teaching King Lamoni about God and about his relationship with Him. We had a really good, spiritually strong lesson but unfortunately he decided that what we had, wasn't for him. He's still our friend, he made that clear but he just wasn't interested in learning about God. Also, the quote from on top happened as we were contacting one night when this older Dutch man came outside, we explained who we were and he wasn't interested. But a fun thing about that night is that as we were "knocking" (we actually just yell: good morning, afternoon or night, at their door) there was an adorable French Bulldog who just absolutely loved us, we were petting him and he started to fall asleep on my hand! We also got serenaded by an old man in Spanish, it's was pretty funny, he was singing about a girl in Curacao but because I don't really speak Spanish, I didn't pick up much. We met an older woman from New Orleans, Louisiana named Shelley, she's so nice and funny! She had a Book of Mormon already but because the print is so fine she couldn't read it. We downloaded Gospel Library (an app for the scriptures) and she was so excited!

Well that's it for me, not too event filled but I hope I you all have a wonderful week!
