A great week...

Salut la famille!
Missionary life is going just splendid this week. finally feeling better and the weather is really beautiful now. Couldnt ask for a whole lot more! We had a pretty good week and some exciting stuff happened. We had a rdv with claude lorche the older lady... oh boy. We took an older couple to go teach with us. But she was a little stubborn... like taking romeo to the vet stubborn. Anyways she basically read to us from the encyclopedia about mormons. In there it says that we are a polygamist cult haha. so she didnt like that. We wont see her again.
Fely is doing well. We taught him the first part of the plan of salvation. Pre earth life the creation and adam and eve. He had some good questions and some crazy ones. Like where eden is and what kind of fruit they ate haha. But he is doing well. he is back in paris for the week to finally see his family again so we are excited for him.

Tuesday night we took a train to paris and i got to stay the night in the antony appartment! It was so good to be back there. Then early the next morning i had to go finish up my legality for my french visa! But now it is all done! I have a sweet french legality card now. Then we went to St. merri to wait for mission council with all the zone leaders and prez.

Oliverson is a zone leader back in bruxelles now! So jealous haha. I got to hang out with him all day. Mission counicl was good. we learned about following the feelings we have from the spirit to contact people. It was super good. We will give a training to our zone on that tomorrow coupled with our interviews with prez.

We also got a call from marko this week. He is back in rennes and so we saw him. And he wants to be baptized the 31st of august. So we taught him and fixed the date and he seemed super ready to go. but then he kinda got mad at a member that we had with us and then didnt come to church... So the date is kinda in limbo. Not sure how serious he is about being baptized. We shall see.

On saturday we were just waiting at a bus stop after a lesson just talking and then a lady came up to us with her son. She asked if we were from the church of jesus christ and we said, uh yeah? Then she said that her son who is eight was taught and baptized by the missionaries in guadalupe in march. They have been in rennes for a month and have been looking for the church but couldnt find it. They just happened to be in the area and saw us and were super happy to find us. We asked if she was a member and she just said not yet haha. We were able to teach them sunday night and the mom wants to be baptized! she wants to take her time though and said maybe in october. Hopefully we can speed it up. She knows the church is true already. It was just super cool to see how the lord works to guide us. She had been searching and her son just told her to put her trust in god and he would help them find the missionaries. SO cool. I'm super excited to teach this family!

Hope you all have a great week and know that i love and miss you tons. Four months from today! loves!
