Tuesday was like our member day. We met with 4 different families. We had lunch and dinner appointments as well as service with Zr VRand we visited Zr G. Super good day. We also got a call from the traveling elders. They are elders who go around the entire mission to go on exchanges with everyone for like 4 days. I worked with the legendary Elder Hunter for 3 days. It was great but they called with short notice and we had some plans already, service appointments, etc. Also, we weren't able to get sufficient food… it was fine though! Wednesday we had 5 appointments with onderzoekers [investigators]. It was a good day and we also found 3 new people. We also tried to fix our dryer and we started by taking it all apart. That was really fun. Also took a pic of that. We were able to get it all back together but it still doesn't work. Oh well.
On Thursday we had interviews. That was sad but really nice [last interview before the Bunnels finish their mission]. I got to take a pic with Pres and Zr Bunnell! Friday was the beginning of our exchange and we had a lot of appointments set up. I had a dinner appointment with fam D. Super cool family and took also a photo with them haha, and their “cavias” [guinea pigs]. Elder Hunter and I found 4 onderzoekers that day.
Saturday was a super weird day, killed us. We woke up and played soccer in the morning for our workout time, then we had service where we loaded up a moving van with stuff. That was heavy work. Then we had another service thing at a farm we go to now. We weeded for 4.5 hours straight, hard work. We all got wrecked by stinging nettle. It was really labour intensive! Then we had basketball that night with 2 less active guys. It went really well! I had a lot of fun too.
Sunday was the last day of the exchange and we went hard again and found 4 new onderzoekers. The last 2 are the parents of this family who are super nice. They are from a country called Eritrea. They speak a language that has no BOM translation which sucks. The parents speak nothing but their language but the kids spoke a bit of Dutch. When we knocked on their door they for some reason were really happy and invited us straight inside without even knowing who we were… they were a super funny family and they gave us a platter of food! It was like Ethiopian food, really good. I took a few pics and videos with them, such nice people. They were christian too. We go back later today!
It was a good week!
