This week was not a lot of missionary work and LOTS of trains! We had
to go to zone conference in Axon-Provence Monday to Tuesday, president
brought his handmade long bow to "prove a point". He nailed a water
bottle from like a hundred feet away outside the church using hand
carved arrows. He explained that because the arrows were hand made
they have more imperfections than normal and often jeer off to the
side when you shoot. All this to emphasize the Miracle that Nephi had
when he went looking for food with one arrow and the bow he made. It
was pretty darn cool! It was the only conference where he hit the
We saw Miguel this week! We brought a member who ended up taking all
of our lesson time to argue with Miguel over Jesus being Jehovah of
the old testament. Every time this topic comes up Miguel can't let it
go because one of his friends who, speaks Hebrew, showed him un
original Hebrew bible that changes the whole "i am" quote that jesus
gives. We are seeing him tomorrow to talk about the Plan of Salvation.
Miguel has read all the way up through Alma now! Pretty cool! He also
has been trying to crack our Gospel Principles book. I cant tell if
he really wants to find the true religion or just prove all the others
Louis is doing well, he has read everything we have assigned him and
has some questions on the god Head. It will be good to brush up on
that. Unfortunately we couldn't see him this week thanks to the train
strikes but Wednesday will be the day.
Train Strikes, so we have heard two different stories from people.
The first is that a man got hit by a train at a train stop and thanks
to French regulations they couldn't move the body until it had been
properly analyzed and so all trains coming through this train station
got super delayed. The other story is that all of the Train workers in
some city up and started protesting and so all trains coming through
that train station got Super delayed. Both could be true. All I know
is that on our way to stake conference our train was delayed for TWO
HOURS. And it didn't help that our train ride was three hours away.
When we finally got to Toulouse stake conference had thirty minuets
left. But I still got to see all of my old Rodez Friends :) Pictures
down Below! Patrick had to go to the bathroom to cry and Mathias
flying jump kneed me in my thigh knocked me over. I bruised.
Unfortunately Madame Gill went to the conference session the day
before. It was super good to see everyone though! I even got to type
up conference for Patrick again:)
We got in touch with a less active named Harvey! He races cars for a
living! He drives like an ANGEL! All his turns make you feel like the
car is riding on clouds or something! I dont know how to explain it
but just the way he drives is SUPER smooth! He is doing good! We got
him reading again and he wants to come to church Sunday and talk to
the Bishop about some stuff. Hervey also works at local races and
stuff! And he ran a marathon! Instant cool points! But this last race
that he did they ended up having some Hundred kilos worth of left over
pasta. So he gave us twenty Kilos! haha We ended up bringing most of
it to stake conference and feeding all the missionaries when we got
back to the apartments :) SO Much Pasta!!!
Yup, that about summes her up. Thanks so much yall for yalls love and
for yalls nice words.
