Sounds like you're all having quite the party haha.
About the American food in Paris. American food is already overpriced here and on top of that, in Paris, pretty much everything is even more expensive. And also I don't go to Paris too often, AND when I do, I don't have time to go to different places. Ha.
So this week was pretty good! We went to Rouen (I found out that I've been spelling it wrong all this time...ha :P) for Interviews with le Président Poznanski, district meeting, and a very small zone conference. I love my mission President!! Seriously one of THEE coolest guys ever!
Elder Paitrault is the district leader for the Caen district (which includes Cherbourg and Caen. ha) and he gave THEE best district meeting I have EVER had to this point. It was HILARIOUS!! He started with a "TV Show" called "Petro's Show: l’émission qui plaît trop!"
Ha...did you catch all the puns? (Petro, plaît trop. They both sound close to his name: Paitrault) Well, what he would do was ask a question...but SUPER fast and if you didn't answer in about 3 seconds, you got the question wrong. He had one question for everyone. It was to demonstrate how missionaries can tend to be with with their investigators. They will just throw up all this information on them and then when their ami doesn't understand something, they just move on. It was super good!
So Thursday, we had three miracles happen. So Cherbourg, the area covers Cherbourg and it's surrounding villes. Not just Cherbourg-Octeville. There is a ville called Querqueville and I've had the biggest impression to go there for the longest time. Since week 2 (as in week 2 in France...) to be exact. But finally, we went!!
Miracle 1: Earlier that day, we were supposed to have a rendez-vous with a cool dude named Ashim. But he didn't show up. As we were waiting for the bus to come, he ended up passing by this stop and he came and talked to us. He still wants to meet with us and get baptised. And he told us the best time to get a hold of him. So we will continue to try with him.
Miracle 2: When we arrived in Querqueville, we started porting. At about the 4th door, an older couple answered. They were interested to hear our message but the house was their daughter's and they were just visiting. And their daughter wasn't home. So they told us to come back in about 30 minutes. So we did. And just as we did, their daughter pulled up in her car and we were able to give them a Book of Mormon and we plan to go back to teach the daughter.
Miracle 3: This one is very touching for me. During those 30 minutes we did more porting. We ended up porting a house where a little girl (probably like 6 or 7 years old) answered. So we asked if we could talk to her parents. Her dad came to the door and said that now wasn't a good time to talk to them because they're busy. Just as the door was closing the little girl said something like "it says Jesus!" (meaning our name tags). Her dad told her "they're just here to talk about Him." And this little girl said the sweetest thing I've ever heard any young child say. Elle a dit "Jésus? J'aime Lui bien! Je veux, je veux!" Which means "Jesus? I love Him! I want to, I want to!"Seriously, it was super awesome! And so the dad told us that we should come back another time.
Well, that about sums up my week! Oh and we invited an ami to Church, elle s'appelle Sylvie. She came!! She said that she loves our church.We invited her to get baptized. She told us she would like some time to ponder on it though. So our next rendez-vous, we plan to get a baptismal date set.
Thanks for the package!! I haven't picked it up yet, but I plan to get it today!! I hope all is well for you! And I'm eating lots of fruits and veggies...but I'll try to work out more :D hehe...
I love you all!!
