so unfortunately I missed theSo, I have a couple of crazy stories haha!! so for transfer day, wehad train tickets to go to Paris. And then from there, Elder Youngwould return to Nantes and then I would be heading to Nancy (theseemojis are way too much fun). So we get to Paris and we decide to headto the church building real quick to see if they have any plannersbecause we didn't have any in Nantes. Anyways, there aren't any andwe decide to head back to the gare (train station) only to discoverthat the station that I have to go to and that he has to go to arecompletely opposite ends of the metro... So we go as quick as we canto his station because his train leaves first and (remember we arelugging around my suitcases-by the way, one of them broke and Ijimmy rigged a makeshift handle with by workout band door hook uphaha!) and we sprinted to the station from the Metro. We then see thathis train is about to leave and we have 3 flights of stairs with bagsstill to go. We try to stay together as much as possible, but for thissituation I told him to go so he could make his train, leaving me withall the bags.. So 3 flights of stairs... 3 suit cases.. One bagbroken. And then I realized that I had the phone for Nantes!! Heneeded that phone!! this situation just got intense!! So I go asquick as I can-sprinting with 3 bags in a shirt and tie- I might aswell of been in a sauna!! Tell Sam if he ever wants a man work out togo sprinting with 3 suitcases in his shirt and tie haha!! So I getthere and find out the train is delayed 5 minutes!! Thank you HeavenlyFather!! But I didn't know where on this SUPER long train! So I said aprayer and was sprinting down, just looking into every car. Such amiracle! The second or third car, I saw him and was able to toss himthe phone right before the doors closed so the train could leave
because of the hard parts of the mission that I have had.train to Nancy because of that and had to... I don't know why, butthey call it riding naked when you don't have a comp.. So I was ridingnaked on the way to Nancy which was weird, but I was able to share thegospel with some really kind people on the way!!! There was onelady who I was talking to and I was sharing the plan of salvation inresponse to the questions we ask about why we are here and then shestarted laughing... I asked her why.. She said that I was adorable.Okay lady! Back off!!! That's weird!! She was like 40!! Abortmission!!! Abort!! hahaha just playing.But I LOVE Nancy!!! It's my favorite city so far!!! It's what Iimagined it to be like as a French city!! Being a zone leader is superfun! I have had some really cool impressions that the missionaries inmy zone need my help because I understand where they might be
So, FYI with having iPads, we are allowed to read our emails on ourfree time any day during the week. We cannot reply until Monday, so ifyou ever feel prompted to write me on a certain day, don't hesitate 😘I'll be reading.
But the positive!!! My comp is SUPER cool and great at being himself and
got here and the members really love him. I am learning a lot it's interesting because we are
teaching a family and the parents are members but the kids aren't, but the kids are super close
with the missionaries. But for the last couple of transfers, the missionaries have played with the
kids a lot so when we come they expect a lot of playtime and I am still trying to figure out how
to be their friends and not play with them, meaning tickle, or hold them, etc. because we aren't
supposed to. But I hope that by my example they will figure it out. It's a hard balance.
I love you momma!!!
