letter from Grant - August 22, 2016

Subject: Lunch is Free

We taught and fixed some appointments with a handful of people this
week of whom was a cool family of three and a guy from annecy and a
hobo(Swiss hobos dress like the average French person and somehow wash
their clothes and don't smell like poop.)

We helped a nice old lady take down a bench. That was good fun. She
gave us groceries for the week afterwords! Haha, we were talking about
how funny the culture in our church is to just feed and give stuff so
freely to missionaries. I guess it goes along with the words the
savior said when he told his apostles to not take with them purse nor
script. Do the work and the lord provides lunch :P

Jamel, got super sick and couldn't come to church nor get her
baptismal interview done because she was in the hospital for two days
and still at home. We were joking because she hadn't seen any
opposition in a while and then BAM she can't leave the house. Her
baptism might get pushed off. We need to talk to her.

Serge, came back from vacation and apparently told his entire extended
family that he is getting baptized Mormon. So, he has been seeing some
crazy opposition but is really dedicated. Other than we still can't
get him to church! I don't know what's going on in his head.

Ali, ate at his house again but this time with the Austins. Really
good food. Ali is still taking his baptism really slowly. Atousa his
daughter/recent convert had a rough week. Her best friend Mandy cut
her out of all social media and won't answer texts or calls as well as
wrote some aggressive things about her. It's taken a toll on her.

Dennis, turned up at church last week and we taught him twice this
week. He came again yesterday and we plan on teaching him some more
this week. Dennis is cool. Really quiet guy. Makes instruments for
orchestras and something else. Like flutes. Is willing to take the
lessons so we are happy to teach him. Elder Underwood and him are like
best friends :P I just can't seem to make Dennis laugh!

Anywho, that's the week.

Avec amour,
Elder Keller
