A "Super" Week

Its been a great week; we had to move Jos├ęs baptism back a week because he couldnt come to church this weekend, but we fixed another baptismal date with raymond and brother salles called me while i was on the train coming back from Paris; we have visited the family salles a couple times now, they used to be less active but started coming back to church a few months ago, anyways we have a mission goal to baptize a family before the year ends; or "creat an eternal family" we introduced the goal to alot of the members so they could start praying for it, brother salles has a 13 year old daughter who is not baptized; so he called me and said; why not our family! yeah he got the hint haha so we have started teaching his daughter the lessons.  we have found a couple other new families; one of them is going really well, we are seeing them tonight.
        I got the christmas package by the way, fudge is great, thank you much
thats great news about kody sorensen; brother sorensen is legit, i love that guy haha, tell kody congratulations for me
       Week 2 district meeting start tomorrow; so we have been spending alot of time preparing for that.  but this time we are having the whole zone meet in poitiers; so we dont have to take trains and run around everywhere; using up our whole week; just a couple days out of the week now.
        Nah i wasnt in the choir for the andersen conference; but on the mission facebook page there is pictures of the whole mission
       Everything else is going great; we have been doing alot of finding, bat porting; got let in several times last night, a muslim couple; un "maitre chien" dog master haha that guy cracked me up; and a jehovahs witness; one of the reasons why i love bat porting so much; you meet some of the coolest people ever.
        Thanks for everything, i shall be sending y'all a letter soon.

much love; LOVE YOU MOM!!

Staying Put this Transfer...

           Everything is going pretty here; we got transfer news a couple days ago; me and elder stephens are staying together as zone leaders here in le mans; so surprises there; mon fils, my blue; is coming into our district to be with elder burgess in angers haha so that means that i will be going on exchanges with my blue, and he thought he could escape me; i told him before i left cergy, that he would never escape me; that i would be his zone leader somewhere, and low and behold.
            We did alot of finding this last week of the transfer; getting ready for next trasfer, alot of bat porting; we got let in quite a few times; and we have quite a bit of potential now.
           On Saturday we were doing some contacting and we started talkin with a young french guy; 26 years old; Martin. he was legit and invited to go get some drinks with him at Mulligans pub; we happily agreed; he bought us some coca colas, and himself a beer; we talked for a good hour about everything; he wants to believe in God; wanted to know how to repent; why we are here on earth, just a legit guy, im excited to hit up the pub again with him sometime soon; even though it was a bit hard for me because out of the corner of my eye i could see the toulouse vs clermont rugby game; oooh brother, theres luke mccallister; lookin like a beast; just executed a beautiful offload to his flanker then another pass to the scrum half burgess for the try; the people in the pub go crazy; woohoo!! haha but it was a great rendez vous, Martin is legit


                We head up to paris again this thursday for mission conference and then week two district meetings the week after where we go visit all the missionaries in the zone; it'll be good

Much love, talk to you soon
