Monday, August 19. 2013 "Things are great"


Hahaha I loved the story of the Duck Dynasty, man do I miss that show haha. Seriously though, they all look like homeless people, but they are all billionaires. That picture of Josh is sweet! That didn't even look like Josh, and that is so weird that he is not wearing shoes. Caden is getting smaller ;) Tell Coach Bishop hi and that I love him! Tell him thanks for all the things he taught me in football. Tell John it was so good to see his smiling face and every time I put on the ties he gave me it instantly puts a smile on my face. Send my love!

Sweet castle type thing in Bordeaux!
Okay, so this week was like 180 degree turn. It was so much better than they last week and I honestly cannot describe the difference. I don't know what caused the head turn, but after working A LOT of things out things are going better. After a lot of praying, and I mean a lot, ha ha this week flipped completely. So, no worries, I am happy :)

Before I forget, the food here is awesome. . . When we eat with the members haha. But, we rarely eat with the members. Other than that, it is very similar to what a college student would eat. . . We shop at the grocery store, very modern, but they don't provide bags, and we mostly buy pasta, sandwiches, rice, etc. . . With the members though, we eat like kings and they make all kids of quiches and pastries and salads, it really is SO good. Speaking of that we have a family home evening tonight with a member. . . and an investigator!

That's right. . . an investigator! 

Rugby Stadium!
Last P-Day walking home we saw a family out working on their yard so we went over and asked if we could help, they said no, but they said we could come back the next day and teach them. They are an awesome Portuguese family with two kids and since that day we have had two lessons, they came to church (the parents), after church they invited us over for lunch, and tonight we have a RDV with them and a member family! It is going to be sweet!

Other than that, basically everyone in this town knows the missionaries and a lot of them know me ha ha. . . So, we are going to start going out to neighboring villages to see if we can find some new people who haven't talked to us yet. So close to every morning this week we are going to try and take a bus in the morning, work all day in the town, and then come back at night. It is going to be exciting!

Last week we had zone training in Bordeaux and it went really good and this week we have zone conference there again, after that I am going to be staying and doing an exchange with Elder Visser (he is from Northridge), for a day.
I am so excited for that.

I slept horrible in Bordeaux!
Thank you so much for the package you sent. The kids are going to love the little rings and bracelets and I loved the socks, they are so comfortable. You guys are the best! I am probably good on candy for awhile though. . . Haha.

The Tongan family is out of town, but I think they get back this week. In knocking doors we actually found a family who is also Togan, who also plays rugby and who also knows the Mormon family we know! So hopefully we can meet up together.

That is terrible about Chris though, I hope all is well now. Geezzz. Speaking of Cole what is his email? I can't believe Nick is already home too.


Well anyways I love you all so so much!
