This has been a really great week and Christmas is coming up so fast! The Christmas spirit is really strong, and we went caroling the other night with the zusters. Dutch people don't really know what caroling is and a few of them didn't know how to react, but some of the people we visited loved it. The zusters made them cookies and one of the people we visit weekly, who is an older guy, loved it. He opened the door and we started singing and he was dancing and had the biggest smile. He can't make it to church because of health issues but has a sterk (strong) testimony. He's awesome. We also talked to Canadians on the train ride to Almere today and it was cool. We heard them speaking English and we asked them where they were from and we started talking to them. It was awesome to talk to people from Canada!
It's good to hear that Kasey is doing well. Pet her for me. Dogs live so long in the Netherlands. Whenever we ask people how old their dog is they always tell us that they're 14 or 16 years old. Send me a picture of the tree! I saw the video about Christmas and I love it. We share it with less actives members and pretty much everyone. It's called Hij is het Geschenk. He is the Gift. I really like what Kaylee is doing in her mission, by doing what Christ would do. What are you doing for Kerst (Christmas)? We had an awesome ward party last night and the members decorated the chapel and some people performed a musical number. There was a cool slideshow with scriptures and bible videos. It was really festive and we sang Christmas hymns and the koor (choir), which we are in, sang a musical number. It was a lot of fun and the ward members are great. You should watch all the bible videos, they're really good. I love you guys and I can't wait to talk to you!!! Have a great Christmas week and a Happy New Year! Fijne feestdagen!
