Sounds like you had a really exciting week. :) I'm stoked to see how the 4 wheeler turns out!
We always use public transit. There aren't very many villes that use cars. So if I do get to drive a car, I'll tell you. :) Cherbourg used to have a car, but the year before I came in, a couple missionary came in and got the car. Cergy is in the Parisian area, and so we have a NAVIGO for all five zones which can get us to anywhere in the Parisian area. (There are 5 zones in the Parisian area...Cergy is in zone 5.)
This past week was really good. We have transfers this week! And guess who gets a new companion!! :P Elder Wilson does. I'm staying at Cergy though. Elder Kendall is going to Metz...which is right by Luxembourg. I'm starting to think that my companions don't like me...ha. I'm starting transfer 4 and getting my 4th companion...haha c'était une blague. :)
Um..so we received a referral from a dude that lives in Lyon for his friend named Simone. We passed Simone a visit and she is SUPER! She loved the message of the restored gospel AND she said she'll come to church this next Sunday!! :D
Also, we contacted a guy in the street named Ives. (sounds like Eve. Not Eevz) We were able to set up a rendez-vous with him. Well, we went to his house and he was all like "Oh man, I completely forgot! Come in, we'll still talk." We found out that he lives with his sister who is like in her 30's. We were able to teach them both about the restoration...and we have another rendez-vous with them le samedi prochain. I'm stoked!! It's pretty exciting, this work that's going on!! :)
I'm seriously so glad I chose to serve a mission. It's been one of the best things so far! I'm lovin' it! I can't believe it's been about 6 months already. I feel like I just graduated from shool (yes, :D
Well, I love you all! Have a great week!! :)
