Buenos Dias! 

How is everybody? Good? Thats good. Im glad your all home safe from Lake Powell! This week was pretty wonderful. Our amis are doing well and we were able to find some new people as well! And im finally LEGAL!! Thursday we went down to Paris and to renew my temporary legality thing, and they had me actual card ready, so voila! That was a little miracle all in its own. While we were there we also got to meet some people! Talking to people EVERYWHERE is so important. We are often lead by the spirit to find new people who are ready for the gospel, even if we dont always have some sort of miraculous revelation. Often we dont even know we are being lead, so you just have to put your faith in the Lord and talk to everyone around you! The people we met in Paris were super cool and it was great to be able to just testify to them. Sometimes you are lead by the spirit as well, you testify and teach, but people dont accept the gospel. Its seems super weird in the moment and we tend to get a little confused or a little frustrated, but its important to remember and have faith that the spirit continues to work with people and that we are just intruments in the Lords hands. We had many experiences of these two kinds this week, nothing super huge, but it helped me a lot just to be grateful for all the little blessings that the Lord gives us as missionaries and as members of His church. I feel like this was kind of a collage of spiritual ideas haha so i hope you understand what im trying to say! Basically this week the work just boiled down to faith and gratitude. Also im really grateful for the boardwalk by our house, because its really pretty and there are loads of young families there. 

And voila, thats about all! Elder Ericson and i will be staying in St. Nazaire for another 6 weeks, and there is work to be done! I love you guys and hope you have a super great week. Talk to you later!
