Week 7

This is Dresden's trainer from Atlanta, Georgia, Elder Baldwin
Dres writing in his journal taken from his mission pres or his wife and posted to Facebook.
This is on Consecration Hill by Sacré-Cœur.  A beautiful cathedral that Amber and I visited a couple years ago.

whassss uppp!
so the keyboards here are super mixed up and we dont have very long to email because were meeting with a new investigator soon so i wont be able to say a bunch.
the first 2 days here were super cool! we were in paris and got to see a few cool sites and some other stuff. i sat next to a french guy on the plane and gave him a book of mormon and then i got to place another one with a guy on the train, he actually sounded really interested and i got his phone number.
i was assigned to Evry with elder baldwin. it has been awesome! evry is known as little affrica because of all the affricans that live here, its pretty sweet. its not the prettiest city in france but there is a massive park right behind our appt that is super pretty! we do a lot of contacting there and a lot of contacting in general. we have a few amis (investigators) theyre pretty cool and all of them are african. church was awesome! and the members are sweet! love you all ill try to give you more deets and answer more questions next monday oh and this is my address right now

Les Missionnaires Elder Empey
17, Cours Monseigneur Romero
91000 Évry

my comp told me that mail only takes like 5 days so thats not too bad

love, Elder Empey


Amber and I were so excited to talk to Dresden on 8/18 on the phone as he left the SLC airport to fly direct to Paris with 30 other missionaries.  Even though we did not get to hear from him after he arrived in Paris, we noticed that his mission president and his wife had posted videos and pictures of his arrival.  I have included his mission Facebook link to on the right of this page.  On 8/20 we received an email that he had been called to serve in Evry and that Elder Baldwin was his trainer.

Google is so cool.  We google mapped his entire area and street viewed his apartment, the church and other exciting things in his area.   EVRY is located 45 minutes south of Paris.  It has a strong LDS community there.

His companion has been out about a year and is from the Atlanta, Georgia area.  I found out tons about Elder Baldwin just from other blogs, etc.  We've read that his French is really good and that he had a pretty serious girlfriend when he left.  We are not sure if that is still the case, but have found her Pinterest page and it was awesome.

We love that Dres is out serving the Lord and feel so close to him and the Savior.
