Dear Family and Friends,
More about the baptism later. This week has been a fast one! The weather has been bipolar! Rain, sunshine, and cloudy! If you don't like the weather, just wait a few minutes and you might get the one you like.

|My first kabob|
|President Blake Roney and me|
We ate, and had very good sandwiches! The best ones I have had yet! When we finished, Sister Roney introduced all the Blu Missionaires. She read facts about us that our families sent earlier. Now everybody in the zone knows I love to cook pot stickers!

When we finished all the other things in conference, we then watched Meet the Mormons! It was funny, because at the end of the movie, David Archuleta sings Glorious, one of his most famous songs. President Roney then got up, and said, "Who was that singnig?", All the sisters then shouted David! President then said "And he was standing at the very mircrophone when he sang that song to us!"
David Archuleta came to the Lyon Mission and sang for all the missionaires back in December. He had two concerts. One in Lyon, and the other in Bordeaux. It was cool to hear some of the stories of the Missionaires there!
We then all got in a big circle and sang our Mission Song. Angels We Have Heard on High. President and Sister Roney then went around the circle and gave hugs and handshakes.
|Yum! American food with dear branch members|
We then all returned to the gare to head home. We got back late, and had the Bergerac elders stay with us. The next day was Jean-Luc's Baptism! We got the program ready, shopped for food, and then had a panic when the person baptizing didn't have clothes! We got that sorted out, and then everything else went smoothly!
Later that evening, we went to Soeur Mas, and ate dinner with her, and Louis, another member. He's from Texas, and cooked us burgers! We had really good Cola, and Grenadine Soda! It felt nice to have American food! We were stuffed!
|French language study|
On Sunday, Elder Johnson confirmed Jean-Luc, and we had a slow day after that. We walked to a part of town to find a old ami. She wasn't home. We returned home, and then did language studies.
Elder Johnson got a bag of marshmallows, and we played Chubby Bunny. Where you stuff your mouth with marshmallows and have to say chubby bunny. We got to 26 marshmallows, but then gagged. We also had a bottle of Champomy, which is like cider. It has a cork, and is very bubbly. Elder Johnson shook it, and the cork popped, and it got all over the floor!
That's what the week in Périgueux was like! Next week we are going to Aix-en- Provence for Elder Johnson's legality. That will take two days. Besides that, I don't know how the week will be!
I love you all, and hope you all have a great week!
-Love Elder Acheson!
