On Tuesday, August 28, 2012, President and I had an appointment in Breda, Netherlands with Sister Annemie van der Waard, the Stake Relief Society President and Sister Tia van Gijsel, the Stake Young Women's President from the Antwerpen Belgium Stake. Bro. de Wilde from the Stake High Council was representing President Boom.
President took the beginning of the meeting and explained the role missionary work and missionaries were taking in their Stake, and what has been done up to date. Afterward, he turned the time over to me and I shared the entire story of the Scripture Bags from Fillmore Utah Stake.
As I finished, the sisters in the room were in tears. Those two stake auxiliary presidents felt the spirit and power that comes with the scripture bags. They were so very touched and excited to carry this forward in their stake. Ideas were already starting to surface. They were both excited to get back with their presidencies.

Ideas and excitement started 'on the spot'.
They were traveling home together and told me they would be talking and thinking about this all the way home.

The Stake is giving full support to this endeavor. The work of the Lord always amazes me. It shouldn't, because this is how wonderfully the Lord works. Still, "I stand all amazed at the love...."
The following Scripture Bags were left in the care and keeping of the Antwerpen Belgium Stake:
They are very interested in getting a short paragraph from each of these Young Women and Leaders telling about yourself. They would love to know more about YOU to share with the Young Women and Sisters in the Stake. You can send it to me at email@example.com Thank you again Fillmore Utah Stake Young Women for this wonderful gift to further the missionary work forward in the beautiful and quaint country of Belgium.
