Tuesday - We saw an older woman in the Ward, JS. We talked about the Paris temple consecration and she has friends who want to go! We also made pizza with the B family and Sister M's family. The Ms are less active so it was a good thing to be their friends. We had Elder Underwood with us, so it was fun being a trio!
Wednesday - I had an exchange with Elder Smith from Val de Saône. It was lots of fun as always. We went around and used their car to visit less actives that live far away, it was really productive. Our rdv with Fab fell through, his son was in the hospital. Please pray for him! His son will be ok, but it's hard for him to come to church when he wants to be with his son. We did some good contacting around the universities, and shared a message with the H.G. family. We met F, Sr. H's daughter, for the first time. She's a new investigator now. She didn't come to church but we'll see her again soon.
Thursday - District meeting, we talked about how to help our investigators. It went very well. After our RCM, Elder Ramsey felt inspired to go pass a family. They weren't there, but right next to them lives a less active named F.H. We knocked on his door, and he let us in for the first time! We met his wife, and we fixed a RDV for next week to eat with them. She is going to make us a tajin, and we are making them chocolate chip cookies. It was a miracle that we saw them!
Friday - We passed some members, saw M.T. (less active) for the first time in a while. She was really appreciative of the visit. We started planning for zone conference too! We're working on an arrangement of the spirit of God, and we are writing some new lyrics too. It should be pretty good!
Saturday - We cleaned the chapel, because it has been super gross recently. The new year came and nobody knew who was supposed to clean, so nobody did. We then went to go help Sr. H's ex-husband move out. We asked him what we need to do to have a successful marriage and be a good husband (this is after getting to know him and finding that he was open to talking to us). I won't go into detail, but it taught me a lot. When a relationship is built upon [worldly values], if that is not repented of and rooted out, it will ruin the foundation and destroy the marriage. Without fail. It was clear what Mr. G thought his relationship was built upon, and because of that, it didn't last. God intends marriage to last forever, so the foundation needs to last forever as well.
After this, we played ninja with Brother M and his daughters. We shared a thought about the temple, and Brother M committed to go back to the temple in July! His two youngest turn 9 in march, and hopefully he'll be able to baptize them around April or May! It is so cool to see his part member family completed. The day he gets to baptize his daughters will be the happiest day of my life. I am so grateful to have met him!
Sunday - Church, very good. We had a guy named A come afterwards, an hour early to the Val de Saône Ward. So we taught him the retab and went to the Val de Saône sacrament meeting with him. It was their Ward conference, and President Léporé spoke. He is amazing. I took about a whole page of notes. A loved it too! We fixed another RDV with him for next week. We will have to pass him, he lives on the other side of Lyon. Elder Ramsey gave him a card at the Val de Saône baptism we went to a few weeks ago. Super cool miracle! We finished the lyrics for our version of the spirit of God, it's awesome. Great week!
I love all of you, have a great week :)
