Subject: Car crashes in Martingy

    Everyone is fine, no one got hurt, I thought mom and dad might wake
up a little faster to that title. The Elders in Martiny Switzerland
were moving apartments. So we took the beautiful drive down around
Geneva lake, through Lausanne and into the valley of Martiny. I had no
idea just how Huge the Swiss Alps really were. About half way through
us moving them into their new apartment we were driving in the city
when an elderly lady started crossing the street. We stopped the car
at the cross walk and waited for her to cross and before we could get
going another person started crossing. Its snowing nicely, nothing
impressive but it was really cold so there was ice on the ground.
anywho we are sitting there and more cars are coming, a guy pulls to a
stop behind us but the guy behind him hits debris on the icy road,
slams on his breaks, his breaks lock up, and he smashes into the guy
behind us; who then in turn, ran into us.
    Our car has one tiny little hole and some chipped paint.


The guys car behind us is two inches shorter on each side.

The mans car who caused the accident is pretty beat up too.

So yeah, we all pull over and get out. I don't know if I was filled with excitement or agitation but it was exhilarating to step out side of the car and see chunks of car strewn across the snow packed road. We all exchanged paper work and got each others numbers. And agreed to meet up at the post office at one thirty. During our few minutes of free time we called Elder Mahafee and he walked us through everything we need to do.  Elder Tyndale and I learned a bunch of new vocabulary. We all met up at the post office and walked into an insurance company building and began addressing the crash. It went better than I thought it would. All the paper work got finished and sent through. So we are all good. It's a good thing we bought new snow tires before it started snowing. The Martiny move took a solid chunk of the week. We spent some time down in Annecy and in Geneva just running errands. Elder Tyndale and Elder Carlson have decided that we need a name for our little trio, and since my idea of being the three amigos nearly made Elder Tyndale throw up we looked to elder Carlson to find us a good name. He named us the 'Wolf Pack'. So we have been toying withthe idea that we are actually in fast and furious and are doing way cooler stuffthen just driving around moving elders into new apartments. I like these guys. They are solid hard workers. And somehow they both find dark chocolate revolting! I was eating some the other day and the openly expressed how disgusted they were. Dad, you have raised a dark chocolate lover. What am I to do?  Anywho, that's the week! Love y'all! Avec amour,Elder Keller
