Are y'all ready to hear the miracle of my mission??!!!???
I don't even know if that is possible because everyone says that my mission doesn't even teach any lessons, but I know the Lord can do what He wants. Why not get my hope's up?"
here's the catch...they actually don't live in the St.Ouen ward boundaries. Which means we had to pass them over to the Paris Lilas zone leaders (who had actually already received their cordonné as well and were teaching them later in the week). IT WAS SO HARD. I told the elders they have to call me after every rendez-vous...haha. But as much as this sucks, we will still be able to attend their baptism, and it doesn't change the fact that they actually exist and that for some random reason we were able to a little part of their conversion story.
And now I have more desire than ever to find a family in St.Ouen just like them. There is no such thing as impossible. This can, and will happen again.
Other than this this week has been AWESOME. I still don't know why bad weeks are so bad and good weeks are so good. Here are some of the wonderful things that have happened:
-I have a tan...ok sunburn...but its whatev. the SUN is shining. We are going on a bike ride in the Bois de Boulogne after this.
-Scott Michel, the son of Catherine Michel is getting baptized on the 29th of this month!!
-We passed by this crazy less active and she had a friend there who is a mom with three kids and we read the family proclamation to the world and the mom LOVED it and was asking us all kinds of questions about the church!
-We have been running up all of the stairs in and out of the metros. On Saturday night we got to a huge flight and were so tired, but just looked at each other and sang eye of the tiger up the whole thing. pretty much wish there was someone who could have gotten a third person video of that.
-Joyce fed us RIBS for dinner this week. I can't even describe the hilaria that is that household. They are my favorite.
My life is not real. I love living and serving here. Paris, although it smells like a giant public toilet, is a dream. I can't wait for y'all to see it.
All my love!
