So like I said, last week we had a baptism! It was for Jenny and it was really nice. He just got the Aaronic priesthood so we were excited about that and he is also allowing us to teach him French. This way he can better interact with the members. And if he's going to live in France forever, it's kind of necessary.

We also got a new President of the mission. I LOVE THEM! They are awesome and I'm so happy we got them. They are really funny. Their goal is to make the missionaries better people and therefore we will touch the lives of more people. I'm excited about this guy. It was also Independence day :) Me and my companion planned the whole day. Red white and blue everywhere. I even shaved an american flag into my leg hair. Sorry if that's gross but I just love America so much. And we ate fried chicken and burger king. My comp bought a 15 dollar (not euro) burger. In America you could buy it for about 2.50.... oh France.

But it was delicious chicken. And we sang the anthem all day long. We got a few new amis. We have Lawsom who wants to get baptized and he said that when he went to church there was an indescribable feeling of joy in him. True conversion right there so hopefully he'll progress next transfer. And we also got a few referrals that are promising.
|Our Friends Didi and Louisa|
We visited a ton of less actives and I have to say that's probably my favourite thing to do as a missionary. Help people find the joy they once had but turned away from. We are helping Didi and Louisa do that right now. I think it's amazing how we can see the literal change in him and also just the spirit that is with him. Not to sound cheesy but it's true.
Today is transfer day and I'm getting a new comp named Elder Perry.
|I'm going to miss my companion!!|
They finally moved the district leader so we're just comps. And now all I have to do is focus on work and not running errands for people and going to baptism interviews. Never heard of him though. Never heard of any of my companions actually because the mission is 250 people. I didn't even realize that usually missions are only 50 people. Thats nuts! Tomorrow me and Meng are going to the Gardens at the Chateau de Versailles and then the catacombs. Jenny is doing well and continues to change. Miss you all and have a good week! Bye!
