My exchange with the zone leaders. So Elder D is a really cool missionary! He leaves at the end of this transfer so I asked him all of my random questions. Elder D understands french really well and can bring the spirit quickly, he is a seasoned scriptorian and is very social. All are great aspects for a missionary and I am striving to develop all of them. We didn't effectively use all of our time our on the road contacting and we waited thirty minuets on an investigator that didn't show up. Yes we were doing missionary work, but we could have been SOOO much more effective! It was a good learning experience that filled a few pages in my journal.
Tocafas!!! The Tocafas are a less active family that moved here from new zealand to play rugby! Yeah for some reason rugby is just huge in France. Anyways, we finally got into their house and met their family! We have a Family night planned this week so Ill keep you posted!
Thibaut, this week Thibaut got a vaporizer. I felt like we lost some ground when he showed us. He thinks it will help him get off of the cigarettes faster and be easier to quit. I really don't know how to help him progress; he has been struggling to read the book of Mormon daily and keep any other engagements that we give him. At this point he knows what he should be doing but has made the decision to not do it. Next lesson we are going to try and reevaluate and ask him a bunch of questions as to what is holding him back from keeping theses engagements.
I look forward to this week! We may be running in 2° weather (Celsius of course) but we have been running! I look forward to Brandon Davies coming to church next week! And I look forward to making the best of what is likely to be my last week with my trainer Elder Perry.
I sent you a bunch of pictures of me "improperly" using my new resistance band but still getting a good workout ;)
