Comment allez-vous? Jaret needs to come to France and buy a French suit. He'd probably love all the clothes here...except he'd die when he sees the price of everything...ha. By the way, random fun fact: gas here is like 1.45 a liter here...which is really close to like 5.10 a gallon...which is like 7 or 8 USD a gallon.
It's nice to hear from y'all. Ha. :) this week was a tough week for me. Although I have some GREAT pictures of the morning horizon!! You'll love them!!
This week we had our Zone meeting and District meeting (the same day ha) in Ruon. It was really good! The theme of the Zone meeting was based off of Elder Utchdorf's talk from the last Conférence Générale "Come Join With Us." I don't remember much of what was said, but I do remember how I felt! :D haha. The spirit was tres fort! It was good!
So we've been working really hard with our old amis lately. Two of these amis are a couple: Francois and Annie. Francois is very agnostic and doesn't really like talking about religion, but he's super nice and a great friend. Whereas Annie is very believing and into religion. We had dinner with them last night at their house. It was good. And we talked about Prophetes and invited them to do what Joseph Smith did.
This week we also started giving the new member lecons to the new converts (that were baptised two transfers before I came...ha). So far we've started with Aimé. And we are planning to start with the other three today and Wednesday.
So there is a drink here, that I have been trying to find since the first time I heard about it (week 2 during my first transfer). It is called Pschitt. Well, I found it at one of our amis' house!! She had some just out on her table, so I asked her where she bought it, and Elder Paitrault and I are gonna go to that store either today or next week to go buy some Pschitt. Bahaha!!
Oh, so this morning, I found some maple extract (from America. The French don't have maple extract) and made maple syrup and french toast!! It was SUCH a great meal!
And on that note, the power of prayer is so amazing! I realized again this week just how important it is to pray sincerely. It's so important that one prays everyday. I don't know how I went without daily prayer before my mission. I know that Heavenly Father is there and that he answers prayers. He hears EVERY prayer.
Okay, so yes, I do have time to practice music. In fact, I play music like every P-day. And in fact, yesterday after church, the branch choir strongly invited us to stay and practice with them [there were 4 dudes and like 5 girls. Just like our choir at home!! ;)] So I would actually love it if you sent me that sheet music! Could you also send me "All Of Me" by Jon Schmidt? (Jon Schmidt is approved to play and listen to in my mission.) It's somewhere in my files on the computer. Thanks :D
I'm SO ticked about the language thing (Grantsville Elementary will begin language immersion next year in French)!! That would have made learning French SO MUCH easier! Which comes to answer another question of yours: Yes, my comp helps me with French. And in fact, I help him with English as well. It's pretty legit!
We are just over one branch. Ha...our branch boundaries are bigger than Tooele County. It's about the size of Tooele County and Salt Lake County combined.
Well, I love you all!! Hope all goes well with the primary program!
-Elder B. Stanton Wilson
P.s. Our primary is like 4 or 5 kids. :) No primary program here.
