This week passed pretty well.
Monday we had a pretty cool Tender Mercy from the Lord. We went out porting at night. We got on the tram and got off where we felt impressed to go porting. We started knocking doors and got the usual responses "ça ne m’intéresse pas." But after about an hour, we knocked on the door of an older lady, who was speaking on the phone when she answered. We told her that we came to pray with her to invite the Spirit of God in her home. She then told that with whom she was speaking that "deux anges sont venues." (two angels have come). She then let us come in and we explained prayer to her then prayed with her. It was pretty cool. She gave us her phone number and we told her we would give her number to the Sister missionaries. :) It was a nice little tender mercy.
Tuesday we had district meeting at then did exchanges. I was with the District Leader, Elder Madsen. It was pretty legit and super fun. We had a great exchange and did some great work. It was really fun to work with him. A cool miracle that happened during exchanges, while we were porting, we ported into an old guy that said he wasn't interested, but he didn't shut the door on us, so we kept testifying. We were able to pray with him and leave him with a Plan du Salut brochure.
New Year's Eve we went to a Patricia's house with the elders from Alençon. Patricia is a single adult, and since there were four of us missionaries, we were able to all go, which was super great. Patricia had her grandchildren over, too which was super fun. We ate raclette and then we played music and sang together. It was super great! :)
New Year's day we received a call from the family with whom we were going to spend the afternoon saying that they had all gotten sick, but that they were trying to set something else up for us for that day. The bishop then called us and invited us to go to his mother's house with him, his wife, and another single adult in the ward to go and eat. It was super nice of them to have done so. We ate escargot! It is super delicious! :)
Saturday, we had the chance to go teach an old ami named Andersen. Elder Davis and I felt impressed to share the plan of Salvation with him, since his teaching record indicates that he's only been taught the rétablissement. The lesson went by super well. The spirit took over and taught. The spirit was super strong and we all felt super edified. We'll be seeing Andersen every weekend now. :)
And that was the week. I feel a little better, health-wise, although I still have a cough. But I am feeling better! :)
I love you all so much! I hope your week goes by super well!
