I am now in Almere and I am so happy and am excited to get to know everyone here (meaning members and the investigators)
Elder Li and I are having so much fun like we are always laughing and smiling. He is Awesome.
We have lot of Investigators and some really cool people lined up for baptism. We are doing our best to help these people achieve their goal.
Almere is a lot bigger than Assen and District meeting will be in Amsterdam every week. I get to go to Amsterdam.
There are always people to talk to no matter where you are. It is so much fun. You know I love talking so here I get to do that a lot.
I am also in a 4 man apartment and that is a blast. we cook food together and just have fun and share miracles with each other.
One thing that is a little hard sometimes is that Almere is a lot bigger than Assen and we use bikes so we will bike as fast as we can in a direction for 30 or 40 minutes to get to an appointment on time. The best is when we bike home at night and we just book it as fast as we can. It is a good workout. I am really hoping to loose some weight while I am here. The Ward is also really cool and the bishop has Austrian Parents or something like that and went to Arizona on his mission. Also there is a family here who both the father and mother served their missions in Austria. Brother Reiche served in Salzburg around 25 years ago. They promised me to make me some Schnitzel and Spaetzle and other Austrian food. I am so happy to be on a mission. I love the gospel and have a very strong testimony of the truthfulness of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. I love God and that is why I serve him. I also love and miss all the people from Assen and Zwolle and of course my Groningen District, and The Van Komens who I will get to see them on Thursday.
I love you all and miss you.
Love Elder Ellis
