this bleu is on fire

There is this thing in our mission that we call: 
BLEU FIRE. Aka. the excitement and good missionary desires that new missionaries have when they get to the field. Uhmm let me just tell you...MY COMPANION HAS GOT IT. Thisssss bleuuuuuuu isssssssss onnnnnnnnnn fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiirrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeeeeeeee (alicia keys, clearly).
I'm just going to throw it out there and say that this has probably been my favorite week of the mission. 

We literally saw it all.
Let me just give ya a little sample of the kinds of miracles we saw this week...
1) Soeur Hosking invited 2 ami's to be baptized this week!!! THEY SAID YES. Catherine Michelle will be baptized on the 15 of February! And Therize will be when she gets a confirmation that the Book of Mormon is true!! 
2) The FIRST door we ported let us in!!!!! Aka. the FIRST door that Soeur Hosking ever knocked on her mission LET US INSIDE TO PRAY WITH THEM!!! I could not BELIEVE it!!!! It was a beautiful Christian algerian lady who cried during the prayer!!!!!!! and said we could come back!!!!!!! obviously I am a little excited. It was a straight up miracle from above. 
3) 5 of our amis came to church!!!!!! 5. It was actually one of the most stressful days of my life, but so worth it. And they all stayed for the...
4) BAPTISM OF NOAH!!! Noah is such a stud, and the newest member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. What what, what, what. 
5) One of the friends who came to the baptism agreed to meet with us next week, so what's up salvation.

Soooooo St.Ouen may be a wretched ghetto, but it is WHERE ITS AT right now. This ward is just EXPLODING and Soeur Hosking's bleu fire is not helping at all to keep it under control. She is the GREATEST. Literally, the GREATEST. She has absolutely NO FEAR and talks to every single person she sees. We are meeting so many people...okay story time: we knocked on a door and a young man answered it with hair down to his butt and a weed pin on his jacket. We still contacted him because why not, and he said "I don't know how you party, but if you want to come in we can show you how we party"....yeah no. 
Ahh, okay we need to go eat Chipotle and see the Opera house, so we have to go!!!! But I LOVE Y'ALL SO MUCHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
