Week 26

this is the only picute ive got for the week. Playing risk new years eve

suppp so i guess for this week ill just kinda give you guys a summary of each day.
tuesday- We had a district meeting at the chapel here in evry with the other elders from Melun. after that Elder Jacobson and I went through the member list and mapped out a bunch of less actives to go find. We didnt have much succes during the after noon but after dinner we went out to Longemeau and met this really cool part member family, the mom served a mission and the dad is a non member. After we visited them we ran back to the gare but barely missed the train, we ended up having to wait in longemeau forever and got home pretty late. on the way home there was this guy in the train that was super high on something. Whenever the train would stop he would jump out the doors, blow his whistle, jump back in the train right as the doors were closing, and then pretend to drive the train.

wednesday- We had quite a few rendez-vous today. Some with families that we've met quite a few times but then the sisters also passed over a single guy that they met once. We taught him the Restoration, gave him a soft baptisimal invite, and he accepted! he seems pretty solid! We also visited a member that lives pretty close to us in Evry. hes an artist and super cool! we all drew a pictures together (I drew a motorcycle of course ;) and shared a spiritual thought. We were told to go in early for newyears eve cuz they didnt want us out on the streets with everyone partying and whatnot so we went back into the appt and played a board game hah. 

thursday- we were also told not to proselyte today, im not sure why, maybe cuz everyone is hung over, or legal reasons, i have no idea. We got to spend some time with a member family during the afternoon. and for the rest of the day we were mostly in the appt making phone calls, writing letters, and we went outside for a bit and played basketball.

friday- today we had to do weekly planning. we just hurried and got it done in the morning after studies. We had a set rendez-vous with a single lady set out in St. genieve des bois and we decided it would be best if we just passed her over to the sisters so we went out there to show them where the house was but she wasnt there :( so elder jacobson and I just stayed out there in St. Genieve and ported the rest of the night. A couple families let us sing to them but noone was interested in us coming back. We have to switch trains in juvisy to get to evry and while we were waiting there in juvisy there were like 6 african guys and girls in a fight and the SNCF security guys had to go break it up.

saturday- We got to teach the t'shama family today, they are a super cool african family of 7! We also went to st. michelle to visit bernard. We had DMP meeting, im not sure what it is in english, something like ward mission leader meeting. our dmp is really cool! after he dropped us off out by St. germain les aparjon so we could see a family that said we could pass back. she was leaving right as we walked to her door and said we'd have to come back another time. so we went and visited George. after we shared a spiritual though with george we had to sprint like a mile to the bus stop to make it in time.

Sunday- The whole T'shama family came to church today!!! it was so sweet! they really liked it too!

alright im going to just stop there. love you all
