Week 14

Seine River near Evry

Elder Davis and Elder Empey
This week has been so awesome!!! I feel like we worked super hard and then we could see it all pay off at church yesterday!
On Tuesday we went to see a lady in Longemeau that we were referred to by a member of a different ward. We were able to get a baptismal date the very first rendezvous!!! and my first baptismal date yet! the member of the other ward has talked to her quite a bit about the church so that helped a lot. we set the date as November 9!
 On Wednesday we went to visit a less active family and while we were waiting for them to answer the door we heard someone singing "how great though art" in some African language and so when no one answered the door we went and knocked on their door and they let us in and we were able to teach them the restoration then we sang with them after haha
On Thursday we had zone conference up in Paris. i love going up to Paris so much, there's always super cool motorcycles hah
We have been spending quite a bit of time in Evry Village this week, its down by the seine river and the buildings and streets are super old and french looking! on Friday while we were down there we met this 75 year old french guy and gave him a gospel of Jesus Christ pamphlet and set up a rendezvous for the next day
So on Saturday we went and visited Karl (the old french guy.) the lesson went good and we were able to get him to pray for the first time ever in his life!! it was super cool!

Church was awesome yesterday! a couple of the the people we invited showed up and then also this random African guy. i stayed with him throughout church and got to know him. he kept saying how happy he was to be there and how everyone is so happy. i asked him if he would like to become a member and be baptized and he said he would love to! so were going to start teaching him the lessons and he'll probably be baptized pretty soon!
