surprise we heard from Grant!

Hey, just so everyone knows I may not write home on monday but tuesday depending on the way things work out. The mission has received Ipads and president has called 3 people to sorta be IT people and help solve any bugs or problems with the Ipads. I will be one of those 3 people so Elder Gossel and I will be in Lyon until wednesday while I receive "training". I will try and write home as soon as I can!!

I love you all and hope you have had a great week!

So I said we probably wouldn't be able to write until tomorrow I am writing. 

We take the train to Lyon today and tomorrow to do training :)

Madame Gil, started this week out by saying she wanted to push the date out further. We set up a time where we could meet and talked her through it. She said she wanted to still get baptized but needs to take care of kids on the weekends for the next month. Elder Gossel responded by saying "well we can baptize you in a lake this wednesday if you want" I was kinda shocked when he told her that honestly. But, she found time to get baptized on the 23 in the nice Toulouse baptismal font :) So all is back to normal! 

We made a cheese cake for our investigator norrick! he really enjoyed that! We told him it came from america :P 

Nothing crazy happened this week. Other than getting called to be a mission IT person. Lots of contacting and talking to drunk homeless people on the train about Jesus. Holy cow, this guy tried to sell us a Jauguar car. Then he puked in the bathroom on the train...Its no wonder why we have the word of wisdom. That man was not a pretty sight.

I love you all and wish you a happy summer! :D

Week in review

 Ethan's last lacrosse game on Saturday and Morgan's Viola concert.  She didn't do super well so we went and got some ice cream.  She did get a good hour of driving in.  Getting closer to getting her drivers license...  we also met up with Tanya and found her a dress for graduation.  Monday was Morgan's choir concert.  Wonderful.  And the week before Kat played at the MS fundraiser again.  Ethan and his friend came and helped sell tickets with me.  Good times, supporting a great cause.

mission letter from Grant

Subject: more fun in rodez!

This week was just filled with lots of missionary work. We didn't do anything out of the norm so no fun stories.
Maude is doing great! Our second lesson went well. She said she probably couldn't come to church this week because of work but said she will try to come next week. The lesson went really well and she responded well to all the questions. Her mom wasn't there but she said she was going to teach her mom the restoration of the gospel! Pretty excited! We don't have a third lesson set up for the time being but she does want to see us again! Thankyou for the prayers! 
Madame Gill told us that she wants to get baptized she just doesn't know when. She wants to have her date on the 23 of may but might not be able to if her daughter in law needs her to take care of the grand kids. It is honestly a realy strange relationship that she has. 
Norrick feels like he is progressing but doesn't at the same time...he has also been a little flakey on lessons. all bad signs. We still pray for him.
We had our Zone P-day today which means we had the whole zone come to toulouse and play games. Lots of ping pong, lots of table soccer. Baby foot is what they call it here...
I have been really tired lately. haha and my alergies have been going crazy here in France! 
I love you all and hope to see you in a few years! :)

the best part of mother's day was skyping with this awesome missionary!  It was so great to visit with him and hear about his investigators and his life in France.  Just love this kid.

Pictures from Morgan's April Orchestra trip to San Francisco

 Morgan had a wonderful time in San Francisco.  Woods Cross High School Orchestra took first place with the pieces they played and first overall!  Very exciting trip.
