My goodness, this computer does not work. Thanks so much for all your emails though this week! It was so good to hear from all of you! I am glad you had such a wonderful conference weekend! I got to watch conference at the Church- in English- hurray! It was wonderful. We had a couple of investigators come but most were no shows. That’s okay because Elder Ballard is coming in two weeks to call our new stake president! He is going to hold a fireside especially for missionaries and their amis! Yaya! We are going to be doing everything we can to get everyone their possible. Please pray that we can have angels helping us to get these special people there!
So... car. We don't have one. We had to drop it off at the shop and leave it there. Rough. On the plus side, buses are amazing! My goodness, I have no idea how to bus contact, so I am learning, yay! It's really fun. We get to talk to so many more people! It is such a blessing! We have had some really cool experiences all ready. We have also gotten lost/stuck a few times. But it's okay, it always works out. We have seen so many miracles! I don't know whether or not we will be getting our car back. Hopefully we will find out this week.
Sister Carpenter is awesome! She is so excited to get out and ready to work. It has been a difficult adjustment from trainee to trainer and car to bus. Our area is so huge, that we are pretty cut off from a lot of people now. It will take some time but Heavenly Father will help us learn how we can do His work most effectively and He'll help us get to where we need to be!
The French is soo much better! Don't get me wrong, it is still very beginner. I have found that Heavenly Father has really blessed us to be able to communicate with these people! He is so good to us. He loves us so much!
Have a good week family, I’ve got to go and try to buy some winter clothes now! Thanks again for all your love and prayers! Right back at ya! Don't forget to watch those hastening of the work videos and apply the things you learned at conference! We are so blessed to have the Gospel, don't forget it!
Love you so so so much
