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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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!
