We had a pretty good week overall here in Rennes. The French really love talking about weather in the first place, but with the crazy heats waves that were coming through this week, it was a big topic with almost everyone that we talked to. I don't know what 38 degrees celsius really translates to except for HOT, especially when the humidity is mixed in there. But, we made it a pretty great week anyway! (38 Degrees Celsius = 100.4 Fahrenheit.)
Monday evening was cool! Elder Kelley and Elder Faura came into town, staying the night with us for zone conference, and he and I got to do a little exchange. We went and visited Andy, the recent convert.

Later that evening, we went and taught Milan about eternal families, with Tom, who just got back from his mission a few days before that. It was a super great lesson! She was holding her baby (who, by the way, was born on my birthday!) the whole time, and the Spirit was so powerful as basically three missionaries testified to her about the blessings that she and her son will be able to see as she reads and prays about the Book of Mormon. For right now, she's struggling to find time to read it, but she'll get there eventually.
Anyway, I'm already out of time, so I'm gonna have to go. I'm sorry these letters are so short lately, I'm trying to do better, but I'll be home in just a few weeks and I can tell you all about it! Have a good week and have fun!
