Last Week in Kortrijk

June 30, 2015

Hey everyone!

We went to Oostende on Monday and had a really busy day planned for today but an appointment fell through so we can email right now. We finally got a fan for our apartment and the new member who just got baptized is doing great. We had an appointment with him, and there's such a change in him. He has a light in him and it's amazing to see how the Spirit works. We had a lesson with one of our investigators today who is trying to find a job right now and it was a really good appointment. We shared Ether 12:6 with him, “And now, I, Moroni, would speak somewhat concerning these things; I would show unto the world that faith is things which are hoped for and not seen; wherefore, dispute not because ye see not, for ye receive no witness until after the trial of your faith.” By the end of the appointment he was really happy that we came and he felt peace. He prayed and it was a really great personal prayer to God. This is most likely my last week in Kortrijk and I'm going to miss the Branch here a lot. If I visit after my mission I'll have to visit Kortrijk for sure. Tell the missionaries that I say, “Hi” and that they're in our prayers as well. The weather is getting really hot here and Elder Jones got pretty burned when we were at Oostende yesterday. It's a nice beach and we played rugby :) We also washed a member’s roof this week and got to talk to a lot of people. There are a lot more students in Kortrijk now because it's summer vacation. College students are usually pretty chill but aren't really interested in learning the gospel. Some are curious and want to know more about the Church, which is still good. We got a call from the Paris/France missionaries and they told us there would be a new member coming up to Kortrijk who is moving from Wallonia, which is the southern French speaking part of Belgium. I love you guys and it's crazy that Kaylee is home! If you could send some cool hymns that are in Celtic form, Island form, and upbeat/not Motab form that would be awesome. Also some Iz Kamakawiwo╩╗ole or Hawaiian music too. Love you guys. Have a great week!

Love, Elder DeWitt

P.S. Don't let Kaylee hang out with the missionaries too much, she has to start a new adventure :) Beste!
