Bonjour Ma Famille,
Oh wow, it has been a crazy, wonderful week. I spent the majority of it up in Lyon picking up my bleue. It was great, I absolutely love that city. It feels like home even though I only served there for six weeks. There is definitely something special about the first ville that you serve in. We were there from Wednesday to Saturday and were able to go to conferences and do tons of contacting (my favorite).
In our short time together, we've already seen amazing things. Let me share with you a few miracles...
We've had a little bit of work to do because we are opening up a new équipe (companionship) here. We're making a new area book, starting with a completely empty phone, etc. We have spent the past couple days getting organized. One thing that we did was go through old progress records and set aside a couple names that looked promising. The next day we got a call right out of the blue. Long story short, an old investigator wanted to meet with us. He hasn't been taught for two years and is now interested in retaking the missionary lessons. He just so happened to be one of the few progress records that we had pulled the night before. We taught him Saturday, he was at church yesterday and we have another rendez-vous tomorrow. New amis are literally falling out of the sky.
While we were contacting, we ran into this lady. She was super nice and explained to us that she was actually a member of our church. She had just moved to Carcassonne and didn't know anything about our church services here. We were quickly able to give her the information and she was at church yesterday. Right place. Right time.
Everything is going great. The ward is continually improving week by week. It seems slow, but when we look back to see how far it has come, the progress is incredible. The Bishop and our DMP are overjoyed to have four sister missionaries here. The work is really just going to explode. They're calling ward missionaries now to help us too. God knows exactly what He is doing with this sector. I'm so ready to work hard and see His plans unfold.
Thank you for all of your love and support. Haha, while in Lyon I was able to pick up my mail for the last month... Let's just say that I have the best family and friends in the world because the assistants were literally rolling their eyes as they sat there and handed me letter after letter. Thanks so much, I feel so blessed. I love you all, have a wonderful week!
Je vous aime,
