Hello family and others, thanks for the emails. Lots of questions, so let's get into it:No new amis this week, we really didn't see anyone ha ha, we are in the process of finding new amis
Tuesday: Exchange with the zone leaders. I was with Elder Dicou here in Anglouleme. Elder Cooper went to Bordeaux with Elder Call. Yes the elder Call I served with in Avignon. Elder Dicou started his mission here, so he called some people and we were able to see a less active fr; Mangou. Very synical man, but he has so much potential. Then Fr. Bordichoux who complained even though some good things have been happening to him recently. Victor who was baptised here almost a year ago, he is really cool and has a great testimony. he talks like one of those revival baptist preachers, only he says true doctrines and such. Then we passsed this less active Yodé (so close to yoda I know!) that was someone who elder Bell baptised while he was here. You remember Elder Bell? We fixed a rdv with her for this week. Then I took a train to BOrdeaux to pick up elder Cooper, and took it back to angouleme with him that night. Both trains were an hour and 20 mins late. ... almost five hours in a train... long time.
Wednesday: Saw Fr: Petit with a member Fr: Humblot, then we ported this place called Fléac which has some pretty houses. Lots of nice people but none of them interested. That night I took a train back to bordeaux for our exchange with the other elders there. I took Elder stanford back to Angouleme with me, and Elder Cooper was in Bordeaux. We could have probably planned it better so that there were less trains, but things didn't work out that well. Our train was again almost an hour late getting there and 20 mins late getting back. ay
Sunday: good day at church. Fr: Mangou came to church, but he made it clear that it was just because the missionary who baptised him was visiting. The bikman family was the old missionary and his wife who were visiting. he was branch president here in 2007. From Rigby Idaho if you are curious. anyway I gave my talk about the first vision. I won't tell you too much about it because I am planning on using a lot of it, or parts anyway for my homecoming talk. No I am not already writing it, but I thought it would be fun to share what I did for the homecoming talk. The members said I did a good job and they were impressed with my french. I twisted it so I basically just talked about the gospel of jesus christ, which is what Prez roney told us to do, so he would be proud of me. After church, We all had a meal together, very good it was a potluck, so lots of everything. Then we passed this refferal we had gotten. A man from argentina, we were able to talk to him. he said he was reading the book of mormon. I was right on his desk too in the open, so it looked like that. he said he liked it, and that he woudl call us if he had any questions. So now he is falling into our trap, he'll want to be baptised pretty soon right. Good way to end the night.
