Nothing incredibly crazy happened this week. We got a few lessons in and we just continue to work with our investigators. A couple of them are slowly progressing and others are, well… They at least meet with us from time to time.
This weekend was fun, though. One of the elders, Elder Helvey, who finished his mission a couple of weeks ago, came back to visit us with his parents and brother. They’re all suuuupppeer awesome. They brought me Pop-Tarts!!!!! :D You can imagine the joy of a poor American-deprived European missionary who misses good old American food and drinks (like Root Beer!!!!!). So thank you, Helvey family.
This weekend was also the PREMIER OF THE TINTIN MOVIE!!!!!! The red carpet was out, Steven Spielberg was in the neighborhood and a giant Tintin parade graced downtown Brussels.
I didn’t go. But that’s what happened. I went there a few hours after it was over. The place was loaded with Tintin posters. (In case you didn’t know, Tintin was created here in Belgium).
So that’s mostly it. Sorry for the lame blog post this week. Life is just work as usual.
I foresee lots of contacting, area book work and birthday cake this upcoming week.
Elder Saul Marquez
P.S. I, Elder Marquez’ mom, looked up Tintin because I had no idea what he was writing about. It is a classic comic book created by the Belgian artist Georges Remi that will be in theaters I think this December.
