This week was pretty tight. Last Monday after emails, Elder Price and I went to play bball on the court next to Le Doubs. Le Doubs is the big river. We played against some french bros so that was pretty fun! 

Last week we went to Suisse for district meeting in Yverdon. If I get transferred that may have been my last time in Suisse! We get our transfer calls this Wednesday! It was supposed to be last Friday but then they switched it.. but who knows what will happen! 

Last Friday, we helped the Spackmans move in. They're the new senior couple in Besançon! They lived in California before! They are super excited to be here and we're super excited for them to be here too! So we helped them move some things in and stuff. The Spackmans will be able to help us with a lot of stuff! So we're super excited. 

Also last Friday we went to Dijon so Elder Price could interview the girl in Dijon for a baptism! It went well, so then she is getting baptized the next day! So that night we returned to Besançon. the next morning, we helped out with some more things at the Spackmans apartment (Soeur Spackman bought us croissants so that was super nice of her). Then the Spackmans drove us to to Dijon so we could go to the baptism!

The baptism went really well. It was a college age girl from Madascar that has been coming to church for a long time, so it was nice seeing her get baptized! She has a really good spirit and testimony! There was a second baptism about an hour later too so we decided to stay for that!

The 2nd baptism was great as well! It was some sisters in Chalon. They aren't in our zone, but the Dijon church was the closest with a font. But the girl was named Vanessa. I found out that in my 2nd week of being in France, i did splits in Aix en Provence. That day, the zone leader and i taught this couple. When we taught that couple they were super engaged and really picking it up! I later found out that they decided to be baptized about a month after. After their baptism, they told there daughter about it; their daughter is a single mom, but when she heard about the church she said she wanted that in her life. So we got to see the her baptism, and it was cool because her parents came all the way, and I talked to them and they remembered me! They told us that the missionaries have baptised a super strong family. They have so much joy in their lives so its been really cool to kind of see the beginning and the end :) Miracles upon miracles. 

Then yesterday, I gave a talk in church, the french is coming along haha. But yesterday evening Elder Price and I were walking toward the church, and we saw the Spackmans along the way. we stopped and talked to them for a second. in the middle of our conversation  two guys walked by and stopped to look at our badges. We started talking, and they were both super religious guys that enjoy talking about Jesus! We gave them a BoM. It was perfect timing and everything. The Spackmans are already bringing us many miracles :) 

And today is 420, so me and my comp celebrated by eating a Kebab on Le Doubs river. 

Have a great week everyone :)
