This week was the week of surprise mangez-vous! I don't want to
complain because we are totally spoiled here but 3 mangez-vous in one
day is a little hard on our stomachs haha. But we're so loved and
spoiled by the members here! It's wonderful.

This week we went to Chamonix to visit the Biouse family. They're an
adorable couple but live really far away from the church so they only
have the missionaries over once every 3 months. But we were the lucky
ones that got to go! Chamonix is a beautiful mountain town, kinda like
Banff or jasper for those who know it. The city is completely
surrounded by mountains and you have to take a special train to get
there. We got to teach they're grandson who is actually from
Marseille! So me and Sr. Smith were like hey! He know Marseille, kinda

On Thursday we visited David and Sylvia! David is a recent convert and
got baptized just after him and Sylvia got married. Sylvia is from
Bolivia and always makes us delicious Bolivian food when we go visit.
We also LOVE playing cards with them haha. Sylvia always cheats but
that's ok. We still love her haha.

And then Thursday afternoon we taught an amazing lesson to this guy
named François. He was so open and accepted everything we taught! He
even accepted a baptismal date! Yay! Right? NO! Haha so we keep
talking about baptism and soon realize that he was actually already
baptized in Spain. So he's already a member of the church but had just
gone less active. But he came to church on Sunday and is very happy
that he was able to find the church in France.

We have also started teaching an awesome referral from a member. Her
name is Séverine. She's been coming to church for about a month but
wasn't super open to meeting with us. But the ward has been great and
now everyone knows her. Anyways we asked again on Sunday if we could
meet with her and she said yes! So we met with her this morning and
we're going to see her again on Sunday. She's really excited to learn
more about the church. She loves the ward! She keeps saying how
different it is here and how nice everyone is. It goes to show what a
difference it makes to have the spirit here. Séverine doesn't know
exactly why she feels so different when she comes to our church but
soon she'll find out ;)

This weeks relief society lesson was about the temple and I really
enjoyed it! It made me really excited to go back to the temple when I
get home. There are so many blessings that come from attending the
temple and so many things we can learn. There was a quote from the
lesson that I really like:

"If we can pattern our life after the Master, and take His teaching
and example as the supreme pattern for our own, we will not find it
difficult to be temple worthy, to be consistent and loyal in every
walk of life, for we will be committed to a single, sacred standard of
conduct and belief."

I love the temple!

Have a wonderful week everyone!
Je vous aime
