Bonjour tout le monde!!!
Anyways!! Crazy and well.. really gross story first! Our toilet and shower line connect... And well somehow, the toilet clogged or something, and there is poop coming out of our bathtub drain!!! GROSS!!! You can say it's a sticky situation hahaha sorry terrible joke! yeah sooooo that will be fun... (I can't believe He started with that....)
Miracle of the week! We were going to an appt with some people who may or may not have been super interested.. and so we get on the bus and behind us is this huge group of teenagers! And typically I get a little trepidated to talk to teens because they will just make fun of you and be rude because I can't speak the language super good yet, but I kept getting this prompting to talk to them! And I sort of pushed it away.. But it came again and again!! So I finally stood up, said a quick prayer in my heart for the spirit to be with me and I started talking to them. And before I went back they were all loud and obnoxious but when I went back there, they calmed down and actually became very nice to talk to-which is not normal for the french- and I found out that they loved soccer!! And on saturdays we play soccer for an hour with the people we are teaching, so we exchanged numbers and are set to play soccer this coming saturday!! Now what's crazy is that we accidentally had gotten on the wrong bus and were on the complete opposite side of town than were our appt was! And then these french kids (it's so weird saying that becuase I still feel like a kid hahaha) helped us find our way back! So I am super excited to play soccer with them and then hopefully we can then tell them what we do and teach them about the joy and love God has for them!!
But this is a time of miracles and I am so grateful for the opportunity to be the Lord's servant in this time!
The ward here is awesome!! I love all the people sooo much!! They are so nice and patient with my franglish :) jk :) ..my french is coming along very well!! I am understanding the accents, which was the hardest part! Heavenly Father is hearing my prayers and helping me so much! I am so grateful for Him! Just like Ammon and the sons of Mosiah from the Book of Mormon, I will be patient in my struggles, for I know that the Lord will give me much success!! There are people here who are ready to hear His word!! And our message is one that everyone needs! Whether they know it or not! God loves them! In fact He loves us enough to have given us a prophet in this time just like in ancient time! And you can know the truth of it through the Book of Mormon! So read it!! Anyways I love you all!! Hope that all is well back in the states! AMERICA :) Thanks for all the prayers!
