Finally Getting Some Real French Culture...

Hey mom!!! Woooooo! Rennes! This week has been pretty good. rennes is pretty cool too. I actually havent seen a ton of it yet. We have been pretty busy with other random things that we havent had a ton of time to just contact in the city. My Zone is called the rennes zone. We are in the region of france called Bretagne or brittany. You should look up some stuff about that. They are pretty proud out here of being from this region. Its actually really cool. They will tell you they are from bretagne like its a different country haha. I am definitely finally going to get some real french culture. My past areas have been pretty full of african people and arabs. But here it is purely french. Which also means that it is a bit harder. This zone has had a reputation for being the hardest one work wise. It is struggling a bit to be honest. But we are going to get it going! Im excited to turn this zone around and back in the right direction. My comps name is elder richer brulé. He is from canada and yes he has mad french skills because he grew up in a french speaking family. So thats good.

So basically this week went down like this... We didnt have a ton of actual missionary work time. Tuesday i said goodbye to xavier which was a heartbreaker. Wednesday i spent most of the day at the church in st merri seeing all of the missionaries and waiting for one that was supposed to come with me to rennes. He is in a different city in the zone. So that took a while. Then the train ride is fairly long to rennes. The next morning we had to get up early to go right back to paris for mission council. But it was super good. We didnt get home till like eight though because we missed our train because president decided to go a little longer than he'd planned. Friday we had a ton of planning to do for the transfer and our regular weekly planning. Then we ate at the family grenal's house. They are members and super cool. She made the best pastries ive ever had! We were dying! Then saturday we did service for a member and then watched the work of salvation broadcast! It was so good! Honestly just super amazing. SO proud to be a part of this work. The ward is really cool here and love the missionaries! It is the biggest ward in our mission too i think. After church a family hooked us up with lunch, they cooked for us and another sister gave us cake! Here goes my six months to sexy... Darn those generous missionary loving members! Haha. That was pretty much the week. There arent a ton of investigators here so we have to build it up from scratch. But im excited to just get to work. Im doing well. it is refreshing to be in a new area. It should be awesome! Love you tons. Talk to you next week. Loves!!!
