Whats up family! 

What a week folks, what a week. Let me tell you about it. 

We surprise found a sweet less active! We were just porting in a building, had no idea that she lived there, then she anwsered the door! We had a great lesson, her neighbor was interested too, and she came to church yesterday. So cool! Little miracles! 

Thursday we had our first real interveiw with President and Sister Babin and they went super well! Dispite the fact that we were in Anger (the city, we weren't angry) literally all day, we got to know the Babin's really well and they taught us some really great things about being consecrated. Its cool how we can always always improve ourselves. I made the decision at the beginning to be a consecrated missionary, like many others do, but the conference helped a ton to just refocus and learn more and be even more consecrated then before! Also Pres. Babin is super cool and kind of reminds me of a gray haired, french Super Man. 

Sunday was also really cool because at fast and testimony meeting all the young men (all 4 of them) got up and bore their testimonies about Scout camp and EFY. I was just kind of thinking about when i went to those kind of things and how much it prepared me for my mission, even though i didnt really see how much it would help at the time. One thing that i really have learned is thats its just the little acts that change us. Going to EFY or Scout camp really is not that big a deal, but the principles and lessons taught there can be eternel! Im super grateful that i got to do those. So, all you young men and women, or possibly moms who can pass this message to their young men and women or i dont know, go to EFY and Scout camp! It will help you much more that you know. 

Also these photos are of something called a Doleman, pretty sweet eh? Its kind of like a little mini stone henge and there are tons of them all around Bretagne, which is the region of France im in. We went with the Harris couple this morning! Its funny how such little moments become so exciting as a missionary haha we were only there for about 20 minutes but it ruled. 

Thats about it for this week. The work is progressing and your prayers work! Thank you so much for your support and prayers and everything. I love you and ill talk to you next week. :) bisous!
