The Johnsons Visit the Netherlands

Two weeks ago our friends, Bob & Paula Johnson came to visit us. They flew in from Salt Lake City to learn about the Dutch people. We did our best to mix in some sight seeing with missionary work. Here is a list of some of the things that we did: 1. Season opening social for the Young Adults (Jovo's), and Institute class, 2. Visit to Delft and stepping into the big wooden shoes, 3. Correy Ten Boom house visit in Haarlem (a family who hid Jewish people in WWII), 4. FloraHolland flower auction (80% of the world's flowers pass thru the flower auctions of Holland), 5. Zaanse Schans windmills, 6. Liberty Park WWII museum, 7. Castle De Haar. The pictures below represent items 2,4,5,6,7. We had a great time with them and gave them a little taste of the culture here as well as missionary life. They even participated in a missionary District Meeting.
