Week 82: Transfer 14: Staying for transfer number 4 in Bloomingdale


Tuesday, June 12, 2017


We are both staying together in Bloomingdale! That means I am going to "kill" Elder Kelly as this is his last transfer in the mission.

It was a great week this week! We decided to tract a whole street for the first time in the transfer. One street stuck out to me, so after we had stopped by a few people, we walked to the street which was 1.5 miles away. We talked to a few people there and left a few pamphlets and cards. We talked to this one young woman there, too who seemed interested and we nearly followed them directly because she left the house with her sister and friend as we finished the street.. we decided to knock on one more door so we wouldn't be directly behind them and then we left. They ended up going to the library which was right next to our car. So that was funny!

Later that night, we got a phone call in the middle of a lesson and we called back. It was a woman who is actually a member. She is the mom of that young woman. 

We had dinner and a lesson with them a few days after and they are all very interested! 

We also biked a lot this week in the heat. We went to Addison, to Roselle and back to Bloomingdale. So, I'm trying to lose some weight haha.

I also finished the whole standard works, pretty much, this week. I started with the Book of Mormon and read the New Testament, the Doctrine and Covenants, the Pearl of Great Price and finally the Old Testament. I skipped Psalms, so I have gone back to that and have 140 Psalms left to read.

So it was a great week. It is hard to live the gospel, but it is worth it. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

Love,

Elder Kloosterboer

I held a turtle!

We got distracted a bit... haha
