Exchanges in Metz, Teaching in Luxembourg

Hey guys!

It's getting harder and harder to think of things to write in these letters lately. I've said to Elder Jenness a few times, there aren't many things that a person can experience in our mission that I still haven't experienced. That doesn't mean it's not fun anymore, but it sure does make writing interesting letters a challenge...

Tuesday this last week we were able to see Rigal again, but we only had enough time to teach about Faith. Later on that day, a member whose wife was gone to visit her family invited us over to have some pizza he ordered. That was awesome!

Wednesday we were in Metz on exchanges, which were great! I was with Elder Empey this time, the new guy in our district, and we did a lot of work but eventually were able to get let in at the end of the night! A really nice young guy let us talk to him about the Restoration and he agreed to have us stop by again another time! They were pretty excited about that.

Thursday was a pretty slow one, but we made it fun anyway. Président Babin gave us a call in the evening with a referral from a member of the seventy for us to contact! Still working on getting ahold of him, we'll keep you posted...

Friday we had lunch with the Marichal family and got to see the progress that's been made on their attic that they're finishing (the one that we helped with a month or so back. They're such a kind family, and they do so much for us and the ward.

Saturday happened really quick. We had to take lunch at 11 because we weren't coming back to our apartment until the end of the day. First off, we headed out to Wecker where Rigal lives to teach about Repentance, Baptism, and the gift of the Holy Ghost. As usual, everything went great with him! Afterwards, we had a lesson that fell through, so we just contacted around for a little bit until we had to catch our bus to the Du family's place. We've been working a lot with them lately, and we had been fasting all day so that our lesson that night would be well received and so that we could help them see themselves how their Heavenly Father sees them. To make a long story short, it didn't go at all how we had expected it to, but in the end, it really ended up being a great night for us all and they're making lots of progress.

Church was, as usual here in Lux, pretty crazy. Afterwards we had Ward Council, which took up a lot of time, but was really productive for us. Once we finally made it back home, we had just enough time to visit a few people before our dinner with the Turner's. Matthew has tons of crazy mission stories and we always have a great time there with them. 

Overall, kind of a normal week with nothing too crazy. I'll try to get more pictures this week, and I'll make sure to talk about Elder Jenness a little next week. He's a great guy and we do lots of work together. it's been a great blessing being with him so far.

Anyway, congrats Tyler on the Eagle Project and the 18th birthday! That's all a pretty big deal.

Kevin, good luck with tryouts! Leave it all out there!

Brian, I miss you too, you're gonna have to share all of your knowledge bowl knowledge with me when I get home. Keep up the good work!

Sorry I didn't quite have time to email you guys all back, I'll try to do better next week!

Make it a great week!
