Lyon II 4

Hello everyone.  Good week, there is still goo coming out of my body, but I am feeling better.  I am taking vitamin C and other goodies that the doctor gave me, so it should be killed soon.  Elder Frandsen is still sick as well, but diong a lot better.

Also funny thing, I had a dream the other day that I was home, and that max was still alive, you think he has got another six months in him?  I thought for sure that I would not see him again until the milenium, but now he might pull through.

Ok, getting to the questions:  Our amis are doing well.  Fabien passed his interview, so he will be baptised this coming sunday.  Tho other ami who was supposed to get baptised isn't looking like that is going to happenh.  He is ready, but he is only 11 and his father thinks that next week is a little soon, so we have to wait on that.  The brazilian lady is not answering our calls.  we'll keep trying though for a while to get a hold of her; 
We have not gotten anything fixed for skype calls, sorry, but It should not be too difficult, the members here aere great, just plan on getting the call early in the morning again, I'll tell you for shure when the next monday.

I'll get you your perfume, but ... the money is kinda running low, and french perfume usn't the cheapest thing in the world... just letting you know/  Love you!
The weight is still coming off, I am waithing for the next soldes to buy a suit which will be just before or after my birthday.
I guess I wasn't clear, Michael Jackoson is already a member, he is just starting to come back again after some time of inactivity.

We make calles to our district leaders several times throughout the week.  We talk with the assistants once a week, and we call the members on four zone every now and again.

yes there are missionaries again in Avignon, they have a person engaged for baptism as well.  They are seeing some good success.

Elder Frandsen has been out not quite a year, he is five transfers behind me.
Tuesday:  zone conference.  President also did interviews.  It was really good, but it seemed a little routiene, of course it was about the seventh time they had done this presentation for the other zones, but still it was very spiritual.  Then we went on exchange witht the elders from corsica, because they were in Lyon for the conference, qnd they didn't leave until the next day.  Elder Iaoniddis and I did contacting for pretty much the whole night.  He is a good missionary and seems almost too happy sometimes.

Wednesday:  saw michael, then Haeven who is doing wello, then Wanda someone who we had seen before, she is pretty golden.  It has been one week sicnce she has had the book of mormon, and she is already in third nephi. She does not want to ... s'engager in one church yet though, so she has declined our multiple invitations to be baptised, but she will some day, she really knows it is true.  Then we saw Fabien had a good rdv about the priesthood.  Then had dinner with a member family who are some of the nicest people in the worlld.  I felt a little bad eathing their food though, because normally the members are pretty well off, but this family ... it is evident that they do not have a lot of money, and it might have been a little of a sacrifice to feed us.  They really are wonderful.

Thrusday:  Saw Kate another lessa ctive member.  We invited her to invite her friends to a big stake activity we will have this comming saturday.  That should be fun.  then saw another lessa ctive lady who is wanting to come back to church, but needs to change when her nurse comes and sees her, because the nurse comes sunday mornings.  this summer she said she will be able to start coming again.
Then Elder Frandsen and I went to the doctor and got some pills to cure the pain.  And we filled in for the sisters in teaching the english discussion thing.  though only one persone came, but still it was enjoyable.  We went home a little early to sleep and heal.

Friday:  saw our JW friend who talked a lot about war and how governement is evil, and the name of God being Jehova... they didn't want to listen, so we dropped him.  They do believe that God and Jesus are different poeple, just that Jesus isn't a god, I am not sure what they think about the spirit.  They do not believe in modern revelation, which doesn't make sense since I showed them a scripture in the bible that says in the last days there will be lots of revelations and other things... really bluntly like that too.  Anywho they didn't want to listen like I said.  then we saw Fabien again and got his  baptismal progaram worked out.  Then Haeven who is still doing really well.
Sturday:  Did some pass backs, E Frandsen slept... no that ws sunday he slept.  Then we went to the Sister equipe's baptism, that was really well put on.  The cool thing is that they were the kids of a reactivated family, so two baptisms, but htere is a whole family of five or so that is coming to church again, really a good experience.  Then we saw sr. Cilpa an old handycapped less active whodoes lots of missionary work and is really just a joy to be around.

 Sunday:  Church good, Sw some members, went to some meetings, ate some foode, E Frandsen slept, Then went to a place called croix paquet to prt, it is a pretty part of lyon that really looks French.  the bigger part of Lyon just feels like any big city, but croix paquet you get the cobble stone roads and rolling hills and all that good stuff.  It is a fun place to work.
Ok, well I love you all more than eanything.  I m excited to see you again.  Do you realize that the next time we see each other after calls will be in person?  I'll probbly be home for halloween, so get my costume ready.  I'll telly ou what I want to be latter.  Today should be lots of fun since the tother elders aer doing shopping for food, it givesu s more time to play.  sadly the weather is poopy, but oh well,

By the way, Lyon seems to eitgher be in summer or winter weather.  It has been on and off cold or super hot this week.  It is almost mai geeze, I hope it warms up soon.  OK love you lots bye!
