This week started off with lots of lessons and contacting in
Annemasse. Then we went out to Evian to talk to a less
active. She wasn't really interested in talking, but we had some
awesome experiences contacting. We just walked along the sidewalk by
Lac Laman, and we got to answer so many people's questions about our
church and had some awesome lessons! We didn't get any new Amis, but I
just love being able to talk with people and hear their stories. A lot
of the people we talk to aren't ready to fully accept the gospel in
their lives, but I love being able to help them feel their Heavenly
Father's love as we teach them just a simple principle of the gospel!
We had a crazy day , it started off with zone training
in Geneve. It was actually a really great training and we talked about
how Christ is their to calm all of the tempests in our lives, we just
need to have faith in him. (Mark 4) Sometimes it is so hard to
understand how we can ever get through the storms in our lives, but
Christ has already weathered the storm for us! He understands
literally everything and he can get you through any storm in this
life. After the awesome training, we headed out on a bus to Lausanne
for a dinner and lesson with a part-member family from the ward.
However when we got to their house no-one was home, we waited and
called a lot but no-one answered. Then we walked back to the bus stop
to see when the last bus home was, but we found that we had already
missed the last bus! We went back to their house, but still no-one was
there. So we ended up having to walk the 5.2 km from Lausanne to
Machilly! Ha it was defiantly an adventure, we were walking on dirt
country roads and along the side of the highway to get to the Gare in
Machilly! The good news was we made it home safe and sound, with only
a few scratches from weeds:)
we had an exchange with the STL's in Genève! I was on
exchange with Sœur Rauzduel, she is from Straussburg - so it was lots
of French again, but she actually speaks really great English as well.
She is a fantastic missionary and I loved getting to learn from
contacting and teaching with her. We had some amazing miracle lessons
as we contacted on the street!
and were pretty standard, we headed out to Cluses
like normal to teach the Baccauvans. We are hoping that
they will be able to come watch woman's conference with the ward next
week! This has been the second , where we actually have time to
study in the morning and not be at the church all day! I love our
ward, we were busy running around to lots of classes and teaching- but
it's so awesome how supportive and loving the ward is. Then that night
we went to Severine's house for the first time for dinner with her and
her husband! Ha she is crazy, she loves teddy bears so her (really old
very cool) house is literally covered in teddy bears! It was a very
fun and interesting dinner, and we also got to eat a delicious
raclette. Ha she is crazy, but she is progressing in the gospel, and
her husband is very curious and is hopefully coming to church soon!
I hope you have all had a wonderful week, thanks for everything you do
and all of your prayers! My frenchie challenge for you this week is to
face all of the tempests in your life with faith, because I promise
you that your savior is right by your side every step of the way!
Je t'aime beacoup!
