E-mail 4-29-13

Mother!  You’re alive. Glad to hear that all is well. You had me worried with no email last week. Technology gets the best of us sometimes... I understand.  Shoes- If you have the exact same shoes (hush puppies) size eleven would be better but honestly it doesn’t matter.  I will make them work. My feet are all callused up so I will be just fine. Maybe you could send some brown sugar and chocolate chips with Bishop too. I need it for cookies. And maybe some high lighters as well.  Mine don’t work anymore.  That’s about all that I could think of. Thanks for sending the peanut butter. Can’t wait to manage it. 
I sent Bishop an email with an answer to his questions and other stuff. Not to worry. And yes you can come to Paris and pick me up. Many parents do it.  That is not a problem at all. President is cool with it.  Save up your money!  Like lotssssss of money. It ain’t cheap going on vacation here in France... easily the most expensive place in the world haha.  Last week I went to McDonalds to get some chicken nuggets... only 4 of them... with a tiny little drink and tiny fry... and it cost 8 dollars!  Imagine what it will cost to ride a train or a rent a hotel room.  Stuff isn’t cheap!   Save uppppp.

Oh yeah in two weeks I will get to see your beautifully smiling faces on skype. That will be neat. I think I could easily be transferred next transfer but that doesn’t happen until the 15th so no worries there.  I will still be here in St Brieuc.  We will have the news the 11th of what is happening though so I will be able to let you know in person.  We have a couple of members here who have skype I believe. I will have to let you know next week.  And yessss its pretty crazzzy to think I have almost been out for one year.  Don’t remind me please.  Time flies by way to fast.  Kinda scary.  Hopefully it starts to slow down a little.

That’s cool that Garrett is back to work in North Carolina.  He will probably be knocking on doors just like me ehh?   My reasons way better though.   Sorry I’m not sorry haha.  I’m sure he will make bank again though.   That’s always a good time.  Make sure he sends me a little of it.  I could find plenty of things to spend it on.

This last week has been crazy.  Elder Davis had to do his legality in Belgium so I shipped him off by train and I stayed in Rennes with the zone leaders for a couple days.  It was a good time.  I learned so much.  My zone leaders are a couple of studs.  Elder Neilson has been my zone leader for 5 of my 7 transfers.  He follows me everywhere.  But that’s okay.  He has taught me so much. The Lord has definitely blessed me with good leaders.  The work is really progressing here in Bretagne. I am stoked to be apart of it.  So many other good things happened this week.  Where to start?   Our ami Joelle wants to be baptized!  She’s not sure when but she is sure she wants to be baptized.  We were teaching a lesson with a member on Wednesday and the member testified that she knew the first time she met the missionaries she knew what they had came from God and she needed it.  Joelle testified to us a couple of days later of the same thing!  She said that she knows that everything we have taught her is the truth.  She has completely stopped drinking tea and coffee!  She has read the Book of Mormon almost everyday for three months!   She has been to church for three months without missing!  She hasn’t missed a Relief Society activity once and she watched all of conference!  She has only known the church for 4 months and it has completely changed her life.  She is the most amazing lady I have ever met.  Most 70 year old people are pretty stuck in there ways in life..... but not when the gospel enters into there heart.  Funny story. I have learned that what we do when we are bored really tells what kind of person we are (think about it)... Joelle got bored last week because it was to cold to go outside to go on a walk... so she decided to read all of 3rd  Nephi!   She said it was way awesome. Pretty good thing to do when you’re bored ehh.  Soo when your bored yall... read the scrips!  Don’t do stupid things (stupid things happen when peepz get bored).

I could go on for days about all the things that have been happening but I need to get going. I got a quick question... Do you see the difficulties in every opportunity or opportunities in every difficulty? Think about it.  Difficulties rock.  Rock them!   Have a good week.  Grossss bisous!  Bon semaine!
