Miracles people!

Hello everyone! 


This is P-day lunch every week. Baguet, appel and cheese. We usually pick a different cheese to try every week, but i took a picture this week because this is my favorite cheese! Ive been trying to figure out how i can bring it home in mass quantities, so we'll see how much I end up stuffing in my suit cases. Its crazy good stuff. 
This week went really well! We had a couple miracles that really helped us out, the Lords hand was definately present in the work this week! First off we had an exchange with our district leader in Nantes. During the exchange we were able to talk to a bunch of people and teach some really cool lessons on the street! One of my favorite things to do if we dont have an appointment is to prepare a lesson and then go out finding with the intention of teaching it. It really ups our chances of teaching people on the road and it just gives a lot of motivation and direction for what to say to people. So that helped us out a lot and we had a killer exchange. Then, back in good old St. Nazaire, we were able to fix a baptismal date with one of our amis named Marie! It was really cool because she had a date 2ish years ago, but she dropped the missionaries because she didnt like the idea of tithing. We refound her and started teaching again and she said that the first time she walked back into the church she knew she was going to get baptised! I'm so grateful for all that the Lord does for us and these little miracles that happen! We just have to remember that its on the Lords time table always. Things havent gotten any easier, but just like He did for the people of Alma, Heavenly Father sure did make Elder Ericson and I a little stronger this week by helping us fix a date! 

Also, another small miracle, the old Book of Mormon DVD presentations. Have you seen those things? Pure genius. My favorite one is the first one when Susan invites Linda to the laurel activity. Man, you gotta watch them. I wish everyone still dressed like they did back in the day. 

The Lords work is hastening! Transfers are in two weeks and its 50-50 if i stay or go, but a hunch and some common sense leads me to think that it will be me leaving. But luckily we've got at least a solid 17 days left of St. Nazaire lovin! Wish us luck and pray that we will find new amis. I love you guys and hope you have a great week!
