Subject: Ovens in Cannes! :D





    So I mentioned last week that we learned to wire in new lights. This
week it was ovens. Well, I guess before I get a head of myself we will
start at the beginning of the week. We went on a funny exchange and I
got to do normal missionary work with Elder Hansen in Lyon Port des
Alpes!

Elder me on the left, Elder Jensen right behind me, edlder Zhu(he's Chinese)
back right, and Hansen on the far right. Elder Zhu made us Chinese noodles. They
were SOOO good! We did a fair amount of finding that day. We had a lesson
planned in the evening at seven. At around five we got a call from the guy
saying that he coulnt make the Rondez vous. At around six while we were out
contacting we got a call from a phone number that wasn't on the phone! Turns out
a kid that Elder Hansen talked to on a bus ride actually called our number off
of the card and wanted to meet us at seven! The kid, who's name I can't
pronounce let alone spell sounds like Al-Beer (I'll just call him A) comes from
a super Muslim background and plays soccer on a local team. He said he got hit
in the head with a soccer ball and can't remember why he is Muslim. So now he is
searching for a Christian church to join! Haha, he was really fun to talk with.
Just a down to earth bro.
When we finished our exchange we got to drive down to Aix en Provence to
install an oven into the Aix elders apartment.

It straight up looks like California! Haha. That was fun, I learned some more
about wiring. I don't know if it's any different over in America? Anywho, we
pulled an outlet out of the wall, trimmed the wires, and installed the oven.
Good stuff, The next day we took a drive a long the cost over to Cannes!
The Cannes sisters also needed an oven so we installed an oven in there
kitchen as well. After we installed the oven we went to the Steak n' shake in
Cannes! One of the only two in France! It was way good! I have never had Steak
n' shake before but after hearing all about it from a good friend we couldn't
help but try it.

Super good food, it was incredible!

We took a stop by the beach and grabbed some photos before we hit the road
again. Great times. We got back into Lyon Friday evening. Saturday morning we
got up and played soccer with a bunch of investigators and potentials. We had
like ten missionaries and like twenty Africans. It was incredible. They kept
yelling at each other in their native dialect and it was just super funny. I am
still a little sore from that sport.
We also got invited to spend some time with the Chinese Investigators
Saturday evening! There were probably ten Chinese speakers there. Great fun, I
love Chinese people, they are so DIfferent! It's great.
Well, that's the week.
Avec amour,
Elder Keller
