Conference Weekend and Easter is Underway!!

Goedemorgen Familie en Vrienden!! SO I once again don´t have to much time, but I will try my hardest to type as fast as humanly possible! 

Lots of things have happened since the last email, Elder Groesbeck is now home and all is well for him. Elder Young and I are doing well together and are having a lot of fun as well and seeing some success already! The Weather is just absolutely the best, we went out the other day just in our white shirts, and we received a lot of confused and scary looks from everyone, haha gotta love it!

I don´t know if I told you all but I got released as a DL, because we are now part of the Groningen District and we will now have a lot of time just to us and the Work, so that is really nice, but I will miss all the exchanges and being involved with the District Members. But we are excited to be a part or Groningen!

So this week has been really busy actually, I set up a lot of appointments and it was a really great week! We had the chance to go knocking on Saturday, which was the only time we had this whole week thank goodness! We were doing a look up at first and he wasn´t home and when we were biking there I saw and area that honestly looked really cool and I thought to myself, hey we should knock there and low and behold we ended up finding two potentials there. One of which is pretty positive and told us that we could come back some time and share our message!! YAAASSSS!!!

Our investigators that we do have are doing well and are making good progression. We ended up having a less active come to church on Sunday, which was awesome. He is from Indonesia and he is hilarious. But overall it was a solid week and we are getting super hyped over here in Assen for General Conference! I hope you all have a great time Watching Conference and make sure to take some notes! I love you all and will talk to you soon! Tot Ziens!

Trust More, Fear Less.

Everyone. Goedemorgen. I have no time at all now. Just in Thies De Jonge a member here in the Groningen Ward, just called us and said that Golfing is going through!!! SO we are about to peace out and hit the golf course!!!! I am super hyped about it!

SO this week was a hard one. We didn't see to much success. But we are excited for the future of Assen. I got my transfer calls this week and I will be staying and getting Elder Young. He is a transfer below me, so it will be interesting for the both of us. I wonder if he is going to be the one who will send me home.. super weird. Even though the work can be hard some days, I can still see the blessings of missionary work here and there.

We had an investigator come to church and that was super awesome!! He enjoyed it and hopefully him and his wife who is a member, will start coming more often! I literally cannot describe how exciting it is to have some come to church and enjoy it! Love it!

Also had a cool experience in Church that day, I had the opportunity to be involved with a baptismal interview for a lady that is getting baptized on the week of General Conference so that was cool. I and Elder Groesbeck then after church were invited to ordain a young man to be the Priest Quorom assistant. His name is Niels De Jonge. And it really meant a lot to Elder Groesbeck and I that we were being good examples to Niels and that he invited us to be a part of that. It meant the whole world to me. Being a missionary rocks to say the least.

I love you all and hope you have a great week and I will talk to you soon! I will send some photos soon! If you have time you should read the first Presidency message for April!! TOT ZIENS!!

NL Doet Dag!!

Goedemiddag everyone!! First off I don't have too much time, so hopefully my typing skills will be better and I can type faster! Also Birthday shoutout to my boy in Alaska Elder Tyler John Fawson!! He is turning 20 this week!! So shoot him an email and tell him Happy Birthday!!

This week was awesome here in Assen, we were busy and saw a lot of little miracles through the week! First off We had NL Doet Dag this week, which is a Nederland wide day of service, last year I was in Deventer for it and this time we had the opportunity to go with the Groningen Missionaries and do some spring cleaning for a local Stable for horses, we were there for about 5 hours just cleaning the whole place. I ended up cleaning and shining the saddles for the horses and just doing some manual labor for them. It is Always nice to do some service and smell like Horse Poop!

This Friday we had the opportunity to go to our investigators Birthday party. It was a lot of fun, it was really cool to see that the whole family really warmed up to us. Normally people are quite scared of us for some reason, but they just treated us like we were family and had a great discussion about faith and beliefs and it was really awesome, Iona makes the best food in the world!!

On Saturday we had the chance to go on Exchanges with the Emmen Elders and I went with Elder Vander Werff. He has been on the mission for about 6 months now. We had a great time knocking doors and having people get upset with us. We ended up seeing a dead guy on the side of the road having CPR done to him, so that was scary. Later that day we decided to go to a place in Assen called Kloosterveen and knock and do some lookups. We ended up contacting a referall that was interested and getting back in contact with some really positive Former investigators! SO it was a super succesvol week!

On Sunday we sang in Church and it was nice, Grietje our investigator came to church which was super surprising! She seemed to have felt the Spirit, so that was all that matters! We ended up having 8 investigators in Church as a ward! Well this is Elder Groesbecks last week, so we are going to make it his best one! I love you all and will talk to you soon! and remember that The Lord loves you!!

Groningen 160

Goedemorgen everyone!! This week was an awesome one for us here in Assen! We had a lot of good sucess and the move to Groningen was a sucess as well! I don't have too much time today, but first shout out to my Mom and Older Brother Matt, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Hope you two have a great week and a great birthday!!

Okay so this week we saw a lot of small miracles happen. Elder Groesbeck and Elder Thornock were on Exchanges in Assen on Wednesday and they ended up knocking into two Former investigators that want us to come back! SO we set up a time with them this week! That was super cool! While I was in Zwolle with Elder Mikkelsen we ended up finding a cool investigator for them that wants to come to church and learn more about the Book of Mormon. We ended up teaching her a Restoration on the door and it was really cool!

Well the move to Groningen began on Sunday and needless to say it was packed, There is now a ward in Groningen that has 160 members. It was insane. It was crazy to see that, it felt like a ward in Utah! In the Apeldoorn Ring, we have probably one of the best Stake Presidencies in the Netherlands, everytime I hear the stake president talk, the Spirit is no doubt in the room. He talked a lot about recognizing the feelings in our heart and not with our head, and that when we go through the hard frustrations in life, we can always go back to how we feel about our Savior and how much the Gospel has affected our lives! It was great!

Well sorry this was super short and very little information, but I love you all and hope you have a great week! Hopefully it is getting warmer wherever you are! Remember that you have a Father in Heaven who loves you and you literally are his work and glory! Tot Ziens!!
