The Old & the New

Last Sunday we drove to Almere to attend the first of six classes in the Parenting Course. We are being trained to teach it here in Rotterdam. The course actually started here and has been around the mission. It was a nice 70 mile drive to the north. At the class we met a brother John Van Vliet, who used to be a home teacher to the Steenstra family that we helped join the church in Haarlem in 1966. He had even played basketball with Alex and Robyn Steenstra. It was interesting to make the connection with him. We look forward to more conversations with him, and learning more about teaching the course.

Last Tuesday we had another District Meeting in our apartment. It was the first time for Elder Bell, since he arrived in our mission last week. He is from Rexburg, Idaho. As with most of the young missionaries we are amazed at the good Dutch that he already speaks. We were also blessed with the presence of our Zone Leaders, Elders Carey and Burke.
