letter from Grant -- March 2, 2016

Subject: Nimes again!

    So, This week was filled with moving the Nimes elders. It was
enjoyable to visit my last ville and see how much the work has
progressed! Unfortunately the only lady we ever engaged to baptism
didn't got through. The missionaries are still in contact with her and
she says she wants to get baptized but doesn't ever show to
Rondez-vous. Anywho, Nimes was great fun and all, except for the fact
that the new apartment was only a couple streets down on the other
side of ville. And due to the construction we had no access to the
roads to either apartments. So, we had to carry ovens, fridges,
washer/dryers, couches, and beds through the middle of the city.
Humorous enough to say, a pain in the back to do. We got some pretty
funny looks. We had a load where we were all carrying mattress,
blankets, and pillows through ville and that load got us the funniest
looks for sure! Haha

When we got back from the Nimes move it was Friday night.

    Saturday was pretty cool though. We took part in helping a member in
our ward move apartments. His name is Wesley. He is pretty sweet, he
served a mission a few years ago so apparently he helps the
missionaries go finding and teaching. We had almost the entire Elder
force of Lyon helping him move, we totaled some twelve missionaries.
The move was probably the fastest I have ever seen! Haha. We got
invited to help the Chinese elders out since they couldn't find any
guys to help them out. We played some Chinese card game called Sang Wo
Sha. I'm sure Josh can translate. It's really fun...if you speak
Chinese. Elder Carlson and I just sort of "watched" and did whatever
the person next to us was doing. Anyways, it was a really cool night,
they engaged tsen to baptism and got two new investigators! Super
awesome elders!

    We gave talks Sunday, they went well, we even got invited over to eat
at a members house after. Weather giving talks is in anyway related to
the members feeding us or not I don't know, but I am glad that they
both happened. We ate at the Bonamy family's. They are the coolest! We
hopefully will play basketball with their two boys this Saturday with
one of our new investigators. The bonamys LOVE to talk so we got a lot
more than a mouthful. But I love them! They are good people all
around. Even better, Mr.Bonamy served a mission in Italy and had the
Exact same job as we do in moving elders! Haha, that was funny, he
told us that driving in Spain was ten times harder then in France.
Apperently there are road where he was about five centimeter from each
wall and when they would get to staircases he would have to go super
slowly and drive up a step or two. Sounds like fun :)

Anywho, I love you all, I hope you stay safe and have a good week!

Avec amour,
Elder Keller
