Bordeaux baby ✌️ Week 69


Bonjour a tous!

j'espère que vous avez que vous avez passé une bonne semaine!

Haha I can't remember a lot of what happened, the weeks just kind of blur but its been good;) Me and Soeur Rutter have been trying to work hard and find new amis to teach, and we will keep working hard at it:)

We had a fun exchange this week when we brought the mont de Marsan sœurs in, I took Soeur Corrigan and she is from Scotland and she is so funny and kind. We got to go visit our adorable Albanian family, and man I love them so much. They basically have nothing but they love us instantly with real, sincere love. Each time we see them they always give us some little snack to eat, and yeah they are my little family here in france:) That night we met with the other srs and a new ami invited us for dinner, we had a really good discussion answering his questions.

Saturday we went over the Family we had found last week! Oh my I love them so much, they gave us lunch and again it was so good to be able to answer their questions and talk with them. The mom and dad both come from different religious backgrounds and yet they both are really faithful. One of my favorite things I have seen on my mission is how our Love of God can unite people across cultural and ethnic lines. We all have a loving Heavenly Father and I love getting to teach his children that he is there and he loves them! SO after lunch we had come in service clothes and we helped them paint their new kitchen. Haha the dad is surgeon so he had these surgeon scrubs for us to wear to protect our clothes haha we looked like blue nuns;) and as we were painting it was just us and Malini (the mom) and she opened up to us a lot and talked with us and ahhh i just love her so much!

Sunday was great and man I just love this ward, they have an amazing spirit of missionary work! Two awesome families invited us over (and one of them invited a less active member we are working with) and we talked about the music of the gospel ( if you haven't seen this mormon message go watch it!) and how this is a gospel that resonates with our hearts and makes us joyful!

I just love this gospel, I love this church, I love my savior, I love my Heavenly Father, I love my mission, and I love all of you!!

Have a wonderful week!

Je vous aime!

Soeur Soffe

Hello to miracles and 🏖 Week 68

Bonjour à tous!

J'espère que vous avez passé une très très bonne semaine:)

Sorry I had written an email last week but I guess it didn't send, so I'll send it after this email:) This week we went up to Lyon for MLC and it was soo good and so fun- somehow it's always exactly what I need to hear. We talked a lot about connecting with people and finding new people to teach. So me and soeur Rutter have been trying to find new people and we had an amazing miracle this week. On Saturday we had planned time to go finding, we had set a goal the night before to find three new amis and we were determined to find them! We went out contacting in a few parks and we talked to a lot of people but no one was interested to learn more. We went to a bench to re-evaluate and we felt like we needed to go porting, it was time to go in for dinner but we were determined to find our new amis. It's been a long time since I've been porting, but we prayed and there was a street that felt good. There was quite a few people home but no one was interested, until this cute woman came outside and started talking with us. She worked in England and Scotland as a Nurse (she was sparked that I'm becoming a nurse) after talking for just a few minutes she asked if we wanted to come in for a drink. She let us in and we met her family, her husband is very kind and she has a cute daughter. We talked for a long time briefly talking about what we do as missionary and a brief retab. and we talked about families and left them with the family and Temples brochure. We are going back this next week to help them paint and then they want to invite us over for dinner and want to learn more! Literally me and soeur Rutter walked out in shock, they were so kind and so nice. It was such an incredible miracle, we have been praying to find people who are ready- especially families- and we found our family! I'm so thankful Heavenly Father led us to them 😊

There was a talk given in conference by Elder Rasband about God's divine design, and I have seen it so much on my mission that Heavenly Father is in the details of our lives and if we follow the spirit will put us in the right places and the right times. I promise that Heavenly Father has a plan for all of us, and I just hope and pray to be able to follow what he would have me do!

Also We went to arcachon today and we were at the beach! We also went to the biggest sand dune in Europe. Seriously it was so much fun!

I love you all so much! Thanks for your support and prayers

Guess where Soeur Soffe is....Week 66

Bonjour à tous!

Sorry I don't have like any time! But we got transfers calls and I am leaving Toulouse😢 buuuttt I'm going to Bordeaux and I'm companions with Sœur Rutter!! I've known her from Lyon when we were in the same zone and she is awesome and I'm so excited!

But man I have to tell you leaving Toulouse after only 2 transfers about ripped my heart out, I love the members and JAs there so much and Sunday saying goodbye was rough. It was so hard to say goodbye to Kevin and Marie (our 2 new miracle amis) ugh already I've grown to love them like friends but we had some incredible RDVs this week and they are progressing so well, and wow I'm just so thankful for the time I was able to spend here and how much I've grown!! And of course today saying goodbye to Soeur gowans ugh again, haha honestly she is like my sister we teased each other and laughed all the time! Thank heavens MLC is in like a week and I'll see her soon!

I can't believe that I'm going into my last 2 transfers already, what!? But ohh I am so so ready to give it my all and work as hard as I can. I love being a missionary so much, I love this gospel, and I love my savior with all I am. I know without a doubt this is his church and his work!!

Je vous aime!

Cookies 🍪 Week 65

Coucou!

J'espère que vous avez passé une bonne semaine:) I feel like i say this every week but I can't believe how fast time goes, it's already the last week week of the transfer when it feels like it started maybe a week ago! We as a mission have a goal of finding 1620 new amis before Elder and Sister Johnson (area seventies) come and tour our mission in Nov. So we have been trying to work as hard as we can, and talk to everyone possible!

Haha also I don't know if I have mentioned this but french people, LOVE, American cookies (because cookies don't really exist here.) I swear this week we have made so many cookies!! Haha it's literally the only way we were able to see one of our amis and some less actives, but I guess you do what you got ta do haha:)

We have seen some really cool miracles this week. So two weeks ago we got a text from an ancien ami (old investigator) we told us that he had met with the missionaries a little before and has been reading a lot in the scriptures and wanted to see us again. We had a rdv with him and he is literally so cool, his name is Kevin and he was taught by the missionnaires before through email and Mormon.org. He has already read through the Livre de Mormon and a lot of D&C and Jesus the Christ! He was going to study to become a catholic priest but then started researching our church more. So now at this point he knows a lot about our church and he has read and prayed a lot trying to find an answer if our church is true. He said that if he receives an answer this church is true he would of course join our church. The rdv was really great and the spirit was really strong. We testified to Kevin about how sometimes to receive our answers we have to act, and trust in Heavenly Father. We invited Kevin to act and live like a Mormon would live and keep praying to receive a réponse. Well that's exactly what he did he came to church on Sunday and loved it (our members friended him so well) and he is happy and wants to see us again soon!

Speaking of faith, we were talking about it this week in district meeting and there was a thought I really liked, it went with this scripture in Ether 12:

11 Wherefore, by faith was the law of Moses given. But in the gift of his Son hath God prepared a more excellent way; and it is by faith that it hath been fulfilled.

12 For if there be no faith among the children of men God can do no miracle among them; wherefore, he showed not himself until after their faith.

I love in the first verse where it says God has prepared a more excellent way, because faith is often trusting in Heavenly Father and trusting his way is better than ours. Faith is often having to ACT or keep walking even when life gets difficult. Faith is acting and working as if God's promises have come to pass, even if they haven't yet, but you continue forward anyway because you have hope that they will.

That's what's been happening for me these past few weeks, our work totally slowed down but we tried to work our hardest anyway and trust that Heavenly Father had better things planned and I am now seeing those miracles come after we showed our faith.

Another miracle on Sunday, this young girl named Marie came to church all by her self and as we started talking with her she told us that she had been living in Las Vegas for the past year and she had been staying with a host family who is Mormon. She went to church with them every week and loved it, but she only met the missionaries once. Well she loved church and wants to learn more, and she is coming with us to a members house tonight for FHE! She is so sweet and I am so excited and happy for her.

I really do know and believe with my whole heart that God, our Heavenly Father, is a God of miracles and if we put our faith in him all of his promises will be fulfilled.

I love you all so much, have a wonderful wonderful week!

Je vous aime

How does a bag break a car? 💼 🚗 Week 64

Bonjour a tous!

I hope you all had a great week, its crazy how fast time is flying. Ha we were hoping with vacances ending we would start seeing our amis more... and we are still hoping that will start happening 😬 mais malgré tout we have actually had some really wonderful miracles this week and the work is starting to look up, which I know is all thanks to Heavenly Father. We have been praying a lot to try to find new amis and to know what Heavenly Father would have us do here in Toulouse and then we have been trying to work as hard as we can to accomplish His work. And let me tell you work and prayer really work;) honestly it's the only way to be a missionary.

We had two exchanges this week with the Carcassonne and Montpellier sœurs and it was so fun! We honestly have such great missionaries in this mission. One cool miracle we saw is on tuesday I was on exchange with Soeur Kenyon and we talked to this woman on a bus named Audrey and she told us she was Catholic but noticed that there was differences in what the Bible taught v. what the Catholic Church taught. She had to leave quickly but I got her number and fixed a RDV for thursday. Well Thursday I was on exchanges again, this time with soeur Blackham, and Audrey came to our RDV and we had a really great first lesson teaching her the retab! She had some really good questions and has such a pure desire to follow God's will. She gladly accepted the Livre de Mormon and told us she would call us after she had read and prayed. She is so cool and I already love her a lot, the sad thing is we haven't been able to get in contact with her again so please pray for Audrey and that we can see her!

We have also seen a lot of members and less active this week, and we were just running around being busy- but that's always the best:) And honestly the only the work really moves forward is members and I am so grateful for the amazing members we have here. Guys I seriously love Toulouse sooo much ❤️

Okay here's the funny story of the week, so yesterday me and soeur Gowans were speed walking to church, because we were running a little late *hah comme dab* and then as I was walking my bag caught on a cars side mirror and as I walk I hear a loud noise and the mirror had pulled out of the car and was hanging by wires! Ahh it was crazy! Haha we weren't sure what to do but as we were walking back from church the car was still there so I wrote a little note and left it on the car with my number saying sorry that I might have broken his mirror. Well late that night we got a text and he told us that he just easily put the mirror back into the car and there was no problem- but he thanked us for leaving the little note and thanked us for our "démarche citoyenne" (meaning like civic duty) so that was sparky, and now haha I'm being a little more careful with my destructive missionary bag;

Thanks for all your love and support, I'm so thankful to be here as a missionary and share this gospel which brings me more joy than anything else I have found in this world! Never forget how incredibly blessed we are with our knowledge of God's plan and never forget how much he and our savior love us!

Je vous aime beaucoup

ciao 👋

Tahitian dance- ia ora na! Week 63

Bonjour tout le monde!

J'espère que vous avez passer une très bonne semaine!

Haha literally this week went by in a blur. So yeah, I can't really remember what happened the beginning of the week! But on Friday we had a big tri-zone conference so we had lots of missionnaires that came in and that was a lot of fun- but ha with our little apartment we were a little squished but that just makes it more fun:)

Conference was really good, we are talking a lot of course about how we can best use facebook. The APs gave us some really good insights about the safeguards we have in place. Then President Brown had all of us ZL's and STL's come and sit in front of everyone and we acted like a questions panel as the missionaries posed us questions about facebook. Ha well you know your girl already doesn't know like anything about Facebook. It was cool though because it became more of a discussion and i learned a lot! (Ha you guys I really feel so in over my head, but I am learning and understanding why this new tool is going to become so beneficial in our mission.)

What Soeur Brown talked about really touched me- it was about giving this our very best. This is exactly what Heavenly Father deserves from each of his children, especially as we are in his work. I still have so much to work to do in this, but I want to try my best everyday to give my Heavenly Father every thing I have.

So me and soeur Gowans were in charge of the food for all the missionnaires- the ZL's were nice and helped us but ha after conference we were just running around. It all worked out really well in the end. Then friday night we had a soirée familiale and we had lots of amis and members and it was poppin'. Haha after conference though me and soeur Gowans were so exhausted- ha we were so slap happy and then just crashed in bed.

Saturday we had a super fun sportif because one of the Tahitian members taught us Tahitian dance- ia ora na! It was so much fun! After we were able to have interviews with President, and it was so good. The work is going good here, but lately its been really hard for us to see our amis and it feels like people are starting to drop a little. It helped me so much talking with president, and this past sunday as a mission we joined together in fasting and prayer for our people here. We all prayed together at 7 in the morning and the spirit was incredibly strong. I have such a testimony of fasting and prayer. I promise you all Heavenly Father is there and loves us so much! Also on Saturday the elders ami Blanca was baptized! She is so incredible and her faith is amazing- its been a privilege to know her and it was such a happy day!

Je vous aime! Passez une bonne semaine!

"They can run but now they can't hide" Week 62


Bonjour a tous

J'espère que vous avez passé une bonne semaine:)

So monday night we flew out to Lyon and on Tuesday had MLC. As always it was so good, and we have some very big changes in the mission and the biggest one is we are now on facebook! (Ps we can be friends with our family and friends at home, so that's why some of you have seen me- and you can be friends me with me!)

The really cool thing about Facebook is that we can now really talk with our amis everyday, its going to be (and already has been) such a better way to talk with people and its awesome to connect our amis with members. Ha but I have to tell you, this facebook thing is a little scary for soeur soffe:) Since I've never had Facebook before, the other missionaries are lovingly calling me the grandma because I need help with basically everything about Facebook :) I'm lucky I have a really great and patient collègue. There is definitely a lot to learn (so any missionnaires or returned missionaries who used Facebook I would love any tips you have:) )

We were also introduced in MLC, a replacement chapter for chap 8 of preach my gospel about planning. This new way of planning focuses on people and what they need and how through setting goals we can help them progress. The way we used to plan felt like we were just filling up the day- but now we are better following the spirit to find what people need individually. I think that's one of my favorite things about the gospel is how individual and personal it is. It's the same thing with sharing the gospel, sure with these new tools we can reach so many people at once, but people will always be converted to this gospel one by one and one heart at a time : )
It's been a good week, we've been busy and yay vacance is finally ending! We had a fun exchange with the Perpignan sœurs too.

I hope you all have a wonderful week!
Je vous aime beaucoup

Learning their stories Week 61

Bonjour à tous!

I hope you have all had a good week! Sorry I don't have a lot of time for emails today because we are flying into Lyon today for MLC tomorrow.

We have had a really good first week together, I love Soeur Gowans and we work together really well. We have had some really cool little miracles this week, that have actually all been with transport contacting!

On Thursday we went down to Béziers to pick up our titre de séjour (legality that lets me stay in France) and yay we are both legal! Coming home we took a big intercity train and ended up sitting next to this really cool man named Marc. He is retired and just finished hiking the alps for a month, and he was heading home to Bordeaux see his wife again(who usually hikes with him.) He was so nice and was showing us all of the pictures he had taken (I loved getting to see the mountains) He gave us some wild lavender he had picked and so I'm exchange we gave him a Temples and family brochure:) He wasn't super interested in the church, but he told us he would read the brochure and I know how much power there is in learning about the temple!

On Friday we went out to pass some less actives, as we were going I talked to this really sweet lady who at the start of our conversation wasn't interested at all, but as we kept talking she became more nicer and you could see her heart soften as she and I opened up. As we got off the bus she asked me if I wanted to take her number and then when she gets back from vacance in September we could see her and talk:)

We have been able to meet some other really incredible people this week, i think that's one of the things I love about missions is the amazing people that we get to meet and talk with each day. To be honest it is still scary for me to try and talk with strangers, but I'm growing to love it a lot more. It's a really incredible thing to see how different we all are, but to also feel of Heavenly Father's love for all of his children no matter where we are from or what language we speak.

Last really cool miracle was on Friday as we were waiting to get on the bus, These two men came up to us and pointed to our plaques then at the sky and smiled and made a praying sign, we smiled and nodded. It turns out they were both deaf, and after one man typed on his phone asking us if we were TJ's (Jehovah's witnesses, soo many people here confus us for them) We explained that we weren't but then the bus came. As we got on, I went to the back of the bus where they were and handed them a pass along card. Somehow we were able to communicate, it was sad because they asked if at the church we have sign language- sadly no, but I showed them where the church website was. At the end they both had big smiles, one pointed to the picture of Jesus and made a heart sign and then signed thank you to me. It was just a really cool experience, and the love of Heavenly Father that I felt for them was so strong.

I hope you all have a wonderful week, and remember how much Heavenly Father loves you and how much he loves all his children around you! Everyone has incredible stories , and I'm so thankful for all the people I've been able to learn from.

Je vous aime beaucoup!

La ville rose encore :) Week 60

Bonjour à tous!!

So soeur tupou'ata is heading home today, and guys she has seriously like become one of my best friends- so yeah that was really sad to say goodbye.... but the good news is I am staying in Toulouse and I am training Soeur Gowan as a new STL!! I'm super excited because soeur gowans came into the mission with and she is so cute and so much fun! She is from Washington state.

This past week we were running around like crazy seeing so many members! Everyone was able to see soeur tupou'ata before she leaves, and it was really great for me to get to know a lot of them better! One of my favorite days was when one of the cutest JAs (young adults) , whose name is utile, took us to this quiet little church in the county and we had a really spiritual pensée talking about missions (her papers are in!) and then we had a picnic in this beautiful park that overlooked the country. Et ça ma fait du bien (that was good for me) because it has been sooo long since I've been in nature or the mountains and I needed it:) I have loved this week being able to be with members because I really have such a testimony that member missionary work is the only really smart way to do the lords work! As members invite their friends to be taught, they are so much more open and willing to listen to the gospel and having a friend in the church really can make all the difference. I have gained such a testimony of this on my mission, and I feel so blessed to be here in the capitole ward because the members really are incredible. So I invite you all this week to pray and think about how you can be a better missionary. I promise you, you have no idea what kind of impact you can have:)

Okay here's the funny story for this week:

So we have been teaching a Nigerian ami named Alex, and he loves coming to church and has been progressing really well. (Also ha all of the Nigerians have problems with my name so they call me Sophia- ha soeur tupou'ata called me Soeur Sophia) Anyways I called Alex last night because he hadn't come to church. So Alex is like 40, but he really wants to get married, and at the end of the phone call he tells me he has feelings for me- but he understands that I am a missionary now, but he wants to keep in contact when I'm home🤦🏼‍♀️ ohh my goodness it was bad haha. So we are going to pass him over to the elders but it was pretty funny. Haha I promise you though, he understands our purpose as missionaries and he knows why I'm here- but I think it'll be best for elders to teach him:)

Have a great week everyone!!

Je vous aime!!

🌞🌞🌞🌞 week 59

Bonjour à tous!

J'espère que vous avez passé une tres bonne semaine! It's been a good week here, so right now we are in the middle of vacance (holiday.) and yeah let me tell ya, vacance in france is a little different than home. Most people have about a month off for vacance, and they travel or just chill chez-eux, but its like so hard to see anyone. So it's been hard to see a lot of our amis and some people have been dropping- but if there is anything I have learned on my mission its that opposition always brings miracles:)

On tuesday the Carcassonne sœurs came in for an exchange, and it was a lot of fun! I was able to go with Soeur Chidester who is a bleue and she is so cute. She actually went to SUU before her mission and she is a ballet dancer who took the same classes I did and she was in the same singles ward as me! (Ha sadly she went a year after me, when I was already out, so we never met.) But we had a lot of fun, and even though she doesn't speak a lot of french yet- she did so well and I was so proud of her! We were able to see an ami, who we have been trying for weeks to see and we had a really good lesson! I had never met this ami before, her name is Christine, but when we met with her she had already read half of the livre de mormon, and she wants to finish it! The thing is she hadn't prayed about it yet, so we shared how we knew the book is true and how we had received a witnesses of its truthfullness. She is really open and has a lot of potential:)

On friday we had a soirée familiale for our amis and members, we made a bunch of popcorn (shout out to best parents ever for the popcorn maker;) ) and we watched rencontre avec les mormons (meet the mormons) and it was so successful. All three équipes of missionnaires had some amis come, and a lot of members! Everyone loved it:)

So this is something that I've been thinking and studying a lot about lately, and its our divine potential. In thinking about our potential, how often do we put limits on what we are able to do? We always say that, oh I'm just not good enough, I can't do that, I'm not ready. We cap our limits, which inhibits our progression. However this is exactly opposite to what Heavenly Father's plan is for us, he wants us to change and grow. God's plan for us is to become like him, and the potential we have inside of us is divine. In romans 8:16-17 it says, " The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together."

We can one day become gods ourselves, and if we believe that Heavenly Father can accomplish anything that means that we can also achieve amazing things because of what we have the potential TO BECOME.

But how do we achieve these amazing works, when we are all imperfect beings with completely impeding weaknesses. Our savior; he is, as always, the answer. The atonement that he accomplished is what allows us to progress. The atonement is the catalyst for change. This is because as we repent, we change becoming more like our savior (and Heavenly Father- as we draw close to one we draw close to them both ) The power of the atonement allows us to begin to achieve our potential, allowing us to move mountains as we overcome the trials and weaknesses of this life.

So please don't put limits on yourself for what you can do, Heavenly Father knows who he wants you to become, and no it will not be easy- in fact it will be painful and hard- but I promise you it does bring the most joy and in the end is easier! Trust that God us our father, and we are his beloved children, and that he has a plan!

Haha sorry for who lengthy that was, but I can't really express how grateful I am to bring this knowledge to people- that they have a Heavenly father who loves them, and that he has a plan for them. Guys being a missionary is the greatest, yeah it's hard but its so worth it!

Je vous aime beaucoup!

Passez une bonne semaine:)

LISEZ LE LIVRE DE MORMON Week 58

Bonjour à tous!

I hope you all had a wonderful week! To start off this week we had a really great RDV with our new ami named Alex, he is the one who came to church last week and loved it! We taught him the retab and he had a lot of really good questions, and was so excited about the BOM. My favorite was that near the end we told him that if he has any questions he can always ask, and we will do our best to answer us. (He is really believing in the Bible) and tells ok I will, but I don't think I need to because *holding up the Book of Mormon* I can find all the answers in here. I just know how true that is, any questions our answers we have can always be find in the Book of Mormon. I have seen it so many times over my mission, that it is our key to lasting to conversion. If any of you feel like your testimony might not be as strong as you would like, or even if you just feel sad and alone- LISEZ LE LIVRE DE MORMON (read the Book of Mormon!!:) ) I promise you that the spirit will come stronger into your life, you will find answers to your questions, and you will better feel gods love!

Then on Wednesday it was zone Conference, so we are actually the only sisters in our zone (the sœurs we are over, are in the Montpellier zone.) However me and soeur tupou'ata have succeeded in becoming the cool STL's (because we also decided to match for conference, because all the elders match each other so we had to too;) ) in the bro-zone... well at least we think we did:) Conference was really good, we talked a lot about safeguards for technology- and how we can create plans to protect ourselves while we are online and using our tablets. Me and soeur tupou'ata presented about how this safeguards we have right now can also be used after the mission, and the habits we create now can benefit us throughout our lives! President and Soeur Brown taught us about Christ's love and his atonement and how we can share his light with so many more people with these new tools! And then of course soeur brown had a fun game for us to play, and us, the zone leaders, and president and soeur brown were the evil influences who launched water ballons at the missionaries who caught them in towels and then threw them back at us 😂 it was fun:)

We have had some other good, and also really hard lessons. We had to drop one of our amis, because she isn't willing to act or progress. It was really sad and hard to explain this to her, but we did it as lovingly as we could and the spirit was really strong. BUT onto better news another one of our amis accepted a date to baptism, ha she is sadly moving into the other ward, mais quand même I'm really happy for her:)

Everything else has been so good, i love my comp so much ha we laugh all the time and it's so fun. I'm just so thankful to be a missionary and to be here in this amazing ville and paroisse! I just love being a missionary and I love my savior and his gospel so much!

Passez une très bonne semaine!

Je vous aime beaucoup
