Other tidbits of information and answers to questions shared during some real time email exchanges.
Adam was featured with his companion, Elder Evans, in a video on his Mission's Facebook page. He wrote of the experience last week. They reported of the great experience being lead to a family that invited them to dinner and all were blessed by the visit. The video is on Facebook - France Paris Mission Poznanski.

Got my haircut this week, free from one of the members, Jerome Kusseling. It actually turned out really good! I'm not really sure why his shirt is inside out...
Are you technically not in Paris?
I'm in Paris, but I'm not. It's confusing. "Paris" itself is technically just west of us. But the city has outgrown its boundaries and has essentially engulfed all the surrounding cities. The Parisienne area goes a ways past us. So, you could argue that we're in the city of Nogent in the Paris area, or in Paris in the Nogent area. It's all one massive, 12 million people strong area, that's not really one city or multiple cities.Do you guys have phones? Are you going to get iPads? We have heard talk about that.
Yeah, we have phones. They're VERY useful as missionaries. Nothing said about iPads yet. And no Facebook, at this point.______________________________________________________________________________
ADAM: We did a lot of cleaning today, cause we found out that we're swapping apartments with the Sisters?
MOM: Why are you trading apartments with the sisters? Will you still be in the same area-ish? You never sent us a picture of your apartment. You better take a couple if you want pictures of all the places you live during your mission. When are you moving?
ADAM: There was a new area opened up/split so there are some Elders who need a place to live. We're not totally sure how it's all going down, but we just know that apparently trading with them is the easiest way to do it. Same sector, just kind of across town sort of thing.I'll get you some pictures, don't worry. :) And we think it might be this weekend, but it could also be next weekend. We're not sure yet. We'll pretty much get the call and have to be out in a day.
MOM: Nice of you to clean things up for the sisters.
MOM: You seem to be emailing about this same time lately. Do you think you will continue to do that? Even after you move? It's a pretty good time since we can talk a bit but we worry about taking up your letter writing time.
ADAM: We usually email at the end of the day if we aren't going to Paris to check anything out. The next few weeks are probably going to be used checking out stuff, since Elder Evans will probably be leaving in about a month, so I'll probably be on earlier. So, for the next while, probably not. If you really wanted to talk, I could send an email text to your phone to wake you up, but I figure you guys need your sleep. And we actually found out this week that with the changes of missionary happening, not only do we not have to wear our suit jackets all the time, but we're allowed to email as long as we want on P-day! There's no time limit. Except that P-day ends at 6, so I've got about 50 minutes left. Plenty of time to write my stuff this week.
MOM: Do you ever get to watch tv or read the news so you know what's going on in the world?
ADAM: Nope. I really have no idea. I heard from a newer Elder that the government shut down for a while again and stuff, but that's pretty much all the news I've heard, other than from you guys.
