Two Christmases

November 10, 2014

Hey Familie!

You've had an awesome week! Sounds like you had a fun Halloween. Will Kasey be able to walk after her toe is amputated?? I really liked the inspiring words you sent me. The horse meat I had was cut really thin, but it was pretty good.

I've had a really good week and we've been knocking on a ton of doors. Lelystad is still a new city and there is a lot of development in the outskirts of the town. We bike there a lot. We biked to a new neighborhood and two people who were walking outside said, “Hi” to us! It was cool. The weather here is getting a bit colder and everyone is getting ready for Sinterklaas. There's a bunch of Christmas lights up in the Centrum. We are going to the Lelystad Harbour to see Sinterklaas sail in. It's a really cultural thing and sounds really fun. There's basically two Christmases here. There's one in the beginning of December where kids get small presents and every one parties, and the other one is the actual Christmas. It's supposed to be centered around Christ, but people here party and get presents. New Years Eve here sounds like it’s going to be awesome, but missionaries have to be back in their apartments by four o’clock. There's a ton of fireworks all night.

The work here is going well and Elder Warner and I talk to a bunch of people about the Gospel. We talked with a philosophical guy the other day and it's interesting to see all the points of views everyone has. He already has a BvM. He hadn't read it yet. He said that he would, and he'll call us if he has any questions. Love you guys! Have a good week! I'll send some pictures next week. We're e-mailing in Almere right now in the biblioteek and there are no usb ports in the computers here, so we can't send pictures. Love you guys!
