|First Zone Conference with New President and Sister Babin - Can you find Adam?|
Friday and Saturday were pretty stormy, and I seem to have left my umbrella in Calais, so with weekly planning and everything, we decided to take some time to work out of the area book and call a ton of people and just organize it a little bit. We have records of people the missionaries used to see that go all the way back to 2004. That's a long time. So we're trying to work on cleaning that up a little bit. I also got my package from Grandma that day (it took it 8 days to get to me) and ate about half of the tootsie rolls she put in there, which was a lot. :) Still no sign of the package you guys sent though, it probably just fell out of the plane on the way here. :)
Sunday was relatively normal except that the Habrants invited us over to eat with them again after church! I guess they really liked us on Thursday. :) They said that they felt bad that the Elders just had to go back to their apartment and eat alone on Sunday when Sunday is supposed to be a day where we can be with our families. They're so nice. :) They made waffles for lunch and we had a really good time with them. We finished up the evening by walking back out to pass by Michelle, the lady who's father had just died, and ended up finding Michel (a man) along the way there and teaching him on a bench for a little! He seems pretty open, but he actually lives in Paris, so we'll probably be passing him over there. We ended up finding Michelle a little later on and just leaving her our number (cause we totally spaced that last time; missionaries are not perfect) and checking in. She's still open to having us, she was just pretty busy with her kids.
So, there's the week! Kind of a regular one but still a good one! And like I said, I found out today that Elder Humphrey is leaving, heading to Orléans (the old one, not the new one, if you get my joke.....) and I'll be getting Elder Lloyd, who is literally trading with Elder Humphrey. I've met him before, and he's a super fun, crazy guy, in the best way. I'll let you know more about him next week. Elder Stucki from American Fork is going to be my district leader. And Elder Evans and Elder Alexander are serving together up in Dunkerque! Kind of some crazy stuff, but it'll all be good. :)
So, there you go. :) Have a good week!
Frenchism: Parking on the sidewalks is totally legal, as long as at least one wheel is still on the road.
