Week 37

tuesday-today after studies we went to go do a couple of pass backs over in centre ville and contacted on the way over there. quite a few people actually listened to us for a little bit but nothing big came from it. We did our pass backs but noone was home, we came back to our appt, changed into some service clothes and all four of us went over to a members new appt. we got to take down all of her wall paper and we started puting up some new wallpaper but it had taken so long to take down the wallpaper that we had to leave cuz we had a rendez vous with a member familly. we went back to the appt. changed back into our clothes, then he picked us up and took us to his house. their names are the Royers and they are rad! elder libby was leaving the next day so it was kinda his goodby to them.

wednesday-during studies elder quist and libby left for paris for transfers. elder lattin and I had 0 rendez-vous planned for that day so we decided to map out a whole bunch of ancient amis and contact all the way to their houses. we found a couple addresses that were in the metz are and went looking for them. we did a whole bunch of walking today! we didnt take any buses, we would just walk to each house and talk to everyone on the way. we met a cool guy that said he had done some geneology at our church, he told us about this cool march he did in spain where he would sleep in monestaries and walk like 15 miles a day or something like that. at dinner we met the new kid in the other equipe, elder wells, hes pretty cool. after dinner we did a lot of porting, an old lady yelled at us pretty bad for ringing her door bell.  really good weather today and a lot of walking! 

thursday-after studies all four of us took a train up to thionville for our meeting with our ward mission leader, frere schneider, hes a rad dude. we came back and had a rendez-vous at the church but got stood up. after that we went to one of our amis house for a rendezvous but he said he had to leave right then for an appointment so that was rough. we knocked a lot of doors but didnt get let in at all. we were walking down a street to get to where we were going to knock doors and the rocker dude saw us out his window and tryed to wave to us to come im but we just signaled to him that we didnt have any time hah pretty funny

friday- we went out contacting for a little bit and tryed to pass by an amis house but he was busy. we were supposed to go home teaching with a ward member after that but he called and said he was sick so we started our weekly planning. after we finished weekly planning we went out porting. A really nice lady let us in. she told us that she knows that we hardly ever get let in and so thats why she let us in. we shared the beggining of the restoration, prayed with her, and she said we could come back the next week. she was super nice

saturday- we had to go to Nancy this morning for a district leader meeting that elder lattin had with the ZLs. once we got back to the train station there wasnt another train heading to metz for a good hour so we went out contacting in their area for a while. a millitary dude stopped us as we walked past this building and was asking where the chapel was. we found out that hes a member but hasnt been to church since hes moved to france, hes from tahiti. we talked to him for a bit and he was super cool. we also found out that he actually lives in our area too. we got his number then had to go catch our train. once we got back to metz we went over to the members house and finished putting up wallpaper in one of the rooms. Its nice being able to do service, its hard to find oporitunities to do service here in france sometimes. We also got to pass by a members house, she is taking care of her mother who is really old and cant leave the house so she hasnt been to church in forevor. 

sunday-we went down to nancy again for stake confrence. it was really good! lots of good talks and a 70 spoke as well. we got to eat lunch with a family right after in the gym. I also saw elder ricks, my first district leader. he is such a stud. by the time we got back to metz it was already pretty late. We had a rendez vous with 3 brothers who live together and are less active, only one of them was there but it went really well. he was super cool, it was our first time going over there. 

so yeah that was our week. lots of people cancelled rendez, lots of contacting, and lots of porting. but it was good! weather has been getting quite a bit warmer which has been nice 

love ya!
