Well...... so... I had such a good week that I will not be able to describe it.
Love Elder Ellis
OK so Monday was good I started the day and the new transfer very good and obedient. We had an awesome lesson with one of our investigators and he is a very smart man so we really have to teach with the spirit and I know that he felt it. He wants to believe and is willing to work for it. Tuesday we go to district meeting and and on the way we talked to two women who were just let out of prison. Now at first I was like uhhh.... but we set all judgement aside and it turned out that they were very nice women and they had decided to start over the day they were let out, they said its weird that they ran into us on a day like that. One of the women wants us to teach her more so we gave her info through to the Elders that cover her area. District meeting was very cool and Elder Crittenden, our new districts leader is a very good leader. The zone leaders were also there so we had a blast, oh and we got a greeny in our district so that's even better. The Van Komens made us delicious lunch again. Well to the highlight of the week. Back in Zwolle all our appointments fell through after district meeting so we decided to look up this guy that we talked to on the street a couple weeks ago. HE was home and wanted his mom and his brother to join. We taught such a spiritual lesson and actually the mom was investigating the church 17 years ago before her first son was born. She almost got baptized and now in the last little while she has been praying to know which church she needed to go to and we showed up. Its a sign. The entire week just has been so good and we taught a ton of lessons and almost got standards of excellence. Well the other highlight of the week (and don't get me wrong the entire week was awesome) Sunday. The mom and both her sons came to church and we set a baptismal date for the mom and the son that we contacted on the street. It was so cool. Also we had a baptism after church in Apeldoorn from the kid of a member family and so many non members came and the zone leaders and an inactive lady who is so cool and she was baptized exactly yesterday 12 years ago. It was so cool. We also taught these two college girls..... well its been a great week. So great. I love you all and the Lord has been blessing me for the hard work and I love this Gospel and being on a mission and to see the Gospel bless others. I gotta go.
