Well this week has been crazy, full of miracles, but totally crazy!
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday we had some really awesome lessons,
but we had lots and lots of porting and contacting. I felt bad for Sr.
Autai with all of the porting, but she is seriously so awesome and she
did so good! We had lots of porting in the rain, but we had some
amazing miracle lessons!
Thursday night was interesting to say the least. I was trying to
make my chicken enchiladas and I was trying to get the pit of the
avocado. I triumphantly got the pit out and was very proud of myself,
until Sr. Wadsworth asked if my hand was okay. I look down and see
that I have a pretty good cut on my hand, (Avocado:1 Sr. Soffe: 0) I
thought it would be fine but Sr. Wadsworth convinced me to call the
mission nurse. So following her advice, Sr. Wadsworth was wonderful
and drove me to the hospital. We ended up having to wait 5 hours to
even see a doctor! (Be very thankful for American Healthcare.) I had
actually cut my hand to the bone, so I ended up getting four stitches!
We didn't get home until two in the morning, but one of our amazing
members knew I had been at the hospital and made sure that we got home
safe (we have the best members!) So the new rule is keep the avocados
and knifes away from Sœur Soffe:)
Anyway after a grand adventure the night before, we drove down to
Lyon for a bleu's bounce back conference. This is a conference they do
and bring back all the second transfer blues and their trainers, we
didn't have one for my group so I was glad I got to go with my blue
and also the Saléve Sr's. The conference was seriously so wonderful
though and exactly what I needed to hear! I had been so scared for
this transfer because I didn't know how I was suppposed to already be
a trainer, and I had felt pretty alone. President shared a story and
told us that sometimes Heavenly Father lets us do things on our own,
because he knows that we can accomplish them and that is how we will
grow! It really is so true, Heavenly Father will always send help and
his love; but sometimes he lets us do things on our own! He
understands the divine potential we have, and he knows how we can
become the kind of person that he has planned for us! So my frenchie
challenge for you this week is to, push your heels into the sand and
don't give up or stop! You can do things you never thought were
possible through the Savior and his will for you!
That night we had a wonderful mangez-vous with the Coppell family.
The elders were there with us, and it was seriously so much fun! It
was one of the first nights where I not only understood everything,
but I felt like I could actually be myself in french! I could actually
make jokes, and just talk with the family! Saturday as normal we
headed out to Cluses, and after we all went over to dinner at Sr.
Morel's. It was another wonderful dinner, and I really just love being
with Sr. Morel because she is honestly my grandma here! Sunday was so
wonderful being able to see all of our amazing members. I realized
this Sunday how much this ward means to me, they have really become my
family! I am so thankful for our Paroisse and the love the members
send us! I'm so so happy that I get to be here another transfer!
Well that's all for this crazy week, I hope it has been great for
all of you! Thanks so much for all of your support and love!
Je t'aime et grosse bisous!!
A funny moment I forgot to mention last week, I was asking one of our
less-actives to pray and instead of saying on her knees I asked her to
pray on her eggs! Whoops I promise I can actually somewhat speak
One of the reasons I love porting
Yeah for hospitals
Yeah for stitches
Hi Magland, you are gorgeous
