Bonjour tout le monde! La semaine s'est bien passée. On faisait
beaucoup de choses, tel que le contacting comme d'habitude! Aussi j'ai
fait un échange avec mon chef de zone. C'etait super! il y avait des
miracles qui se sont produits. On a rencontré des gens très gentils.
Malgré ce mauvais temps, nous essayons de travailler dur.

(Google translate from the editor, hopefully it is correct:

Hello everybody! The week went well. We were doing
many things, such as Contacting as usual! Also I
did an exchange with my area manager. It was great! There were
miracles that occurred. We met very nice people.
Despite the bad weather, we try to work hard.)

This week was great though!

I did an exchange with Elder Mauss. I've known elder Mauss since the
beginning of my mission! So it was super fun; he's a really funny guy!
We saw some cool things though. We got on the train and sat with this
guy in a four man thing. He asked us about our name tags, and that
lead us into an hour long conversation on the train about our church!
He was way interested in the church. He's about 40 years old, has a
wife, and a young boy. He's also 100% French. So it was pretty
interesting because we don't often find French people that are
interested to talk to us. But he enjoyed talking with us! He was
asking soooo many questions. It was wonderful! At the end, when he had
to get off, he asked for our card and numbers. He lives in my sector,
and he said he comes to Valence often. He said he'll call me when he
comes down to Valence; he would really enjoy meeting with us again.
Honestly he was a very humble and balanced guy; he had his life going
and how he wanted it, and he loves God! After our conversation on the
train, I had gained a lot of respect for this humble man!

So this week, please pray that our friend François will call us :)

After we got home, we had a missionary coordination meeting. Our ward
mission leader, Frere Barrou, bought us subway and we talked about the
work! Frère Barrou is a super nice guy.

After, we went to pass our friend Mesake. On our way we met a nice guy
from French Guyane. He was interested as well! So we got his
information so we can come back later. We also had a lesson with
Mesake, where we gave him a Book of Mormon in his language! He was
hesitant to accept it, but he took it in the end. So we pray that he
will read it!

We had zone conference this week; it was great! We talked about
families and different ways we can start to find more families to
teach. So it was really good! In our mission, we teach mostly just
individuals. It's kind of hard to come across a family that has a true
desire! So we're starting to put s specific focus on families. I feel
like all of it was inspired from president! Hopefully we will soon
have a family of three to teach (our friend François and his family.)

This awesome dog we saw on the street.

So this week, Seta invited us to come work out with him for a morning.
Seta is one of the professional rugby players in our ward... He
absolutely destroyed us! Haha we did shoulders and triceps.. I haven't
had a workout like that in over a year! Haha my comp elder Thangaraj
threw up after haha I was about to throw up.. But it was fun! We wanna
try doing one workout with him a week.
He also invited us to his game this last Saturday! At this game, there
was 2 of our Amis, a few potentials, and a few less actives. So it was
super fun to go! It was the first rugby match I had ever watched. It's
a really sweet sport! Valence won!

We ate at Delbert's house. Delbert is this really funny member in our
ward! He fought in the war in the Congo. But he's from La Reunion! So
he cooked us something spicy. It was really great!


Well that's about all I have time to write about this week. Have a
great week! I love you all!
