Hello family and friends!
I hope that you are having a great springtime! It's a little rainy here, but there have been some good days of sunlight!
So we have had a pretty busy week here! We taught 6 lessons this week! Pretty good! :) So instead of going day by day, I'll just list different subjects, and you can enjoy them while you read!
So we have our investigator Jean-Phillip. He is progressing fine, and we taught him more about the Book of Mormon. We read a chapter and we discuss it to him. We also answer his questions that he has from his studies.
We have our other Investigator Brianna. We only saw her once this week. We went to a park and we read the intro to the Book of Mormon. It's a little harder to get her started on it. We still don't know why. That was the majority of the lesson. We try to just talk and have her be comfortable with us. She leaves France at the end of this month, so we are trying to get her hyped up to meet the missionaries in America.
Our less active Sr. Korpal came to church on Sunday! She came for the Sacrament, then she left to go back and be with her kids. The members were super happy to see her! I don't know how long it was ago that she came to church, but we got her there!
We have been reading with her, and we did her dishes one day. She is super funny! She likes to give us exercises to do.
The mission moving team came to give us a new sofa and some chairs! It was fun to be with Elder Carlson again. I used to be part of the moving team. We made them homemade Master Tacos. I still don't know how to make it exactly like the one in Lyon... I'm super upset.
We had Zone Training in Toulouse! That was a great training. We talked about the importance of the Book of Mormon. We then ate Chicago style pizza. Elder Walters the District Leader made it.
Then we all gathered around our zone leader Elder Beck. He is a musician from New York, and he showed us some tricks on the piano. He played one of my favorite songs "I Will Possess Your Heart" By Death Cab for Cutie. He is really good!
We went to the market on Saturday, and we met Sylvia again! She's the lady that we gave a Book of Mormon to on the walking line. She really seems to like us! She said that she started to read the Book of Mormon! She said she read the first chapter, so we told her to continue and to come to church. She would be great there!
So on Sunday we walked the line. We got some good conversations and we gave out a Book of Mormon! We then went to Sr. Korpal’s to read some scriptures with her. While walking back, a lady stopped us and asked if we help people stop drinking. We said sure, and then her boyfriend came up and started talking to us pretty harsh. He probably was drunk too. But we got the lady's number, and we gave her the plan of salvation pamphlet. It was perfect. She asked why we are here, and where we will go after! So hopefully she reads, stops drinking, and helps her boyfriend stop as well, and then they get baptized! \
We then went to the Dieute’s house to have some good sandwiches! They are a super great family. We are happy to always go over. We made some Peanut Butter cookies, and they seemed to really like them.
Well, I don't know what else to add! Frederic is going strong. We read the Book of Mormon with him a few times a week, and he gives us French classes. We try to talk to people, and try to teach when we can.
I guess that's all for now! I love you all! Hope you have a great week!
