Summer Time...

hello hello
it has been a hot week and a long week, and our preparation day is almost over already; pretty ridiculous.  we did fix a baptismal date this past week, its a bit shaky but we will be seeing her, more ofter now so hopefully we can get that one going well soon.  not much else is really new, we still do alot of finding, contacting and porting, lots of bat porting, finding tons of people but none of them really progressing and vacances have started so everybody in france leaves on vacation for like a month which does not really help things.  a family did invite us over to have some crêpes on sunday evening so that was a nice break from the normal flow of things.
we took the metro into paris today, gonna hit up soldes while its the last week, thats all the shopping i wanted to do, then i will be good until the end of my mission
i dont know if you got the photo i just sent you of dominique, what a cool dude, found him doing some bat porting in strasbourg two weeks before i left, cool to see that his baptismal date stayed sure and now he is a member of the church; good for him and even better for the ward (they need it)
as to answer your questions about what i want to do after my mission, i dont know... alot of people have asked me, i need to give it some serious thought, i will figure something out, school yes, rugby yes, have fun with the fam yes, but the rest i do not know, i dont even know whats majors exist, i will probably set up some kind of appointment with a byu counselor see what i like and see what would be the best options to take, so yeah i will let you guys know what i think of next week
anyways much love, thanks for everthing

talk to you all soon
bisous bisous

Going Well...

hello family
sounds like a pretty fun summer so far, stadium of fire, good times good times.  its starting to get super hot over here as well, especially when down in the metros; joobies.  things are going ok, we are teaching lots of lessons now, well above the mission average, and found 7 new investigators this past week; 3 of them came to church on sunday so that was great, people tell us that we are tearing it up ha ha but i still hestitate and stress a bit, because we want BAPTISMS, so there are some things we need to do better or differently to get baptisms this transfer;
the ward is cool, sunday was great we got to present ourselves, my blue did a pretty good job ha ha i wrote down a few things he could say, he did a good job, it reminds me of the first time i was training because it was exactly one year ago and it was summer, i was in a suburb of paris, its like its happening all over again, pretty weird.
nah dont worry about sending me anything, everything is good, shoes socks and shirts that i have should last me until i come home, however i was thinking, i did want to profit from soldes; or sales that are going here for the next month, everything is super super super cheap, its a national thing, so if you want to slip just a few dollars on the my ol visa card, that would be great :) ha ha i dont even remember how much money i have on there now, or my password, is that a problem??
anyways things are going great, the apartment is better now, we have warm water, and the other stuff is figured out so its all good
we are off to go eat paninis and crêpes in the "secret" spot that i know in down town paris, its super cheap and then off to throw around the football with elder burgess and his comp later this afternoon in front of the eiffel tower mahahaha what pimp daddys
thanks for everything, talk to you all soon
