Hello everyone! Did you realize that I'll be home next month? That is a weird thought now isn't it? sure it is the beginning of this month, and I come home right at the end of next, but still. i had a bit of a freak out crisis this morning ha ha. Don"t worry, I am not getting trunky, but it is not a secret that I don't have too much time left. So how are you doing?questions:
I have not looked at classes yet, I was planning on doing that after I write you. I have been thinking a lot about a major and such, and while I have not made a solid decision, I think yo uare right mother, and even if I want to get into video and such, majoring in that would not be the most critical thing. You might be happy to know that I want to sign up for a computer science program to see what I think about that. Ever since I talked to that member who said that you can get a well paying job litterally anywhere you want, it seems a little more attractive.
Friday: Got ratéd, then we helped this crazy woman get to the hospital (did I explane thta last time? if not ;.. it is a long story) So we took the bus with her to the psych hospital, and then we taught her. Or rather we tried to teach her, and she kept talking over us telling us how much she was thankful and how she was nice. Then when we were leaving she said "ok,on fait la bise?" which means she wanted to do the cheek kisses that french people do here. We started to explain that we couldn't but then she grabbed me and Elder Fletcher and didn't Bise us but really smacked a kiss on both of us... oops ha ha. I don't think we'll see her again. Afterwards, we got into a conversation with a JW and saw a cross-dresser in the road, so I would say that it was a pretty successful exchange haha. We switched back friday night. I really need to piggyback our exchanges off the district meetings or something, because so much time is taken in travel.
Sunday: Church was fun. I believe this was the first Sunday that I didn't do something for the sacrament. Our ami was in Toulouse, so We didn't have a class, but it was fun to be taught instead of teach something. then we saw this guy Paulin whom we had talked to sunday passé. he is cool and comes from TOGO. He doesn't seem golden like baptise me tomorrow, but he is humble and loves god, so we have hopes for him.
Elder Swenson is funny . he comes from Pleasant Grove Utah, and has been on his mission for eight months. he really likes to skateboard and play guitar and do misisonary work. I love yo uall very much. I pray for you daily. Stay groovy and have a good life. I don't know what is up, but the computer has not been recognizing my sd card recently, That is why <i have not been able to send pictures recently. I tried again and it isn't working. can you wait until... next month Oh, that is bizzarre. Stay strong. Elder fletcher as well served in Utah for three weeks because he had some visa trouble. He worked in our mission, and worked in Sandy and Draper a lot. If you continue west on 123rd south, until you get to like 900 west, that's where he lived. So that was fun to hear. He said people are a lot nicer here in France than they were in Utah. That surprised me, but then again I guess everyone that isn't a member there knows the church and has already formed their opinion on it. I personally dont' know why anyone wouldn't join or go inactive. it is really the greatest thing. I am very greatful for my mission. I really feel 100% converted, and i am not oging to turn my back on God. I probably will have hard times... rather I will have hard times, but I have just had too many experiences, many of them on my misison, that I cannot deny the divinity of this church and the reality of the restoration. Then again anyone can loose thier testimony if they don't take care of it. That's why you need to feed your spirit (2nephi 32) So eat up! Love you. Talk to you next week and see you next month. HHAAAHHAHAHHA!
