Wij Gaan Voorts Steeds Voort!

Hey everyone! Hope that you had a great week and that life is going well. Crazy that the school year is already over again and all of you are heading into summer now. Time goes quick!

We had a good week this past week and had some cool miracles. One of the biggest miracles happened today when we were riding to go email. We felt inspired to go a different way to go to email today and didn't really know why, but we did it anyways and as we were on the street that we turned on, someone drove up next to us and asked if he could have the missionary lessons since he's gotten some in the past and he really wants them. He also happens to live in our area so that was super awesome! We've been trying to find new investigators as well so that was a huge miracle! God is real! We also had the opportunity to visit President Verwey and his wife this past week and we talked about God with them! When we asked them how they came to know that God is there, their answers were so heartfelt and it strengthened my testimony of God as well. President Verwey shared Alma 18:32 about how God knows us and everything about us! The Verweys are great. President Verwey also gave an awesome talk at church on Sunday about prayer and following the first promptings that we receive. It was super cool and one thing that really stuck out to me was that he said that a question that we can ask God during our prayers is: "Wat kan ik voor u doen?" (What can I do for you?) As we ask God that question and follow the first promptings that we receive, then miracles will happen.Super awesome! We're working really hard to find some more investigators and we're seeing cool miracles every day! 

The title of the email is let us all press on! There is a cool quote that says that "It is impossible to fail when you are doing your best on the Lord's errand." I paraphrased it, but it says something along those lines. I know that that is true though and as we do our best to serve God, no matter the result, we know that we are successful. That's been a big help on my mission and I know it to be true. I hope that you all have a wonderful week and know that God loves you all! Lobi!
