We were in Belgium so we worked with the Gent Elders for the last afternoon and evening. We visited with a special member.
Sister Robinson, Sister Omozokpea's mother, President Robinson
Sister Omozokpea is one of our wonderful sister missionaries serving in our mission. She is from Belgium and serving here in the Belgium Netherlands Mission. What a fun thing to met the mother of Sister O.
One other connection---Sister O's mother was baptized in Antwerpen and was taught by Sister DeGroot--now Sister Anderson. Sister Anderson was our Dutch tutor at the MTC in Provo for the months preceding our leaving for our mission. We love Sister Anderson like a daughter. What a small world with so many connections.
Elder Stoddard, Elder Praag, Russ and Jenni and family.
That evening we had dinner with this great family in Gent. Russ grew up in England and Jenni is from Sandy originally. So dinner was in English again.
It is so wonderful to met and get to know the wonderful members of the church serving and helping move the missionary work forward in their own wards and branches---Building Zion and Strengthen her Stakes! Missionary work truly works when it is "member missionary" oriented. I have gained a testimony that is the Lord's plan and miracles really happen when members and missionaries work together.
