Good news! We had Claudia come to church yesterday! As well as Edwin again. Claudia is doing amazingly. She reads the Book of Mormon and recites from memory everything that she read every appointment. We just barely started talking about the Plan of Salvation with her. OH OH OH!!! I forgot that we did that Soiré au Parc this last Monday. It went great! I hope that Sr. Turner sent you pictures. Dana was there and a couple other friends of Sr. Martial. Even Dana's twelve year old daughter came and we were able to teach her again after that on Saturday. She is really nice and I hope she will come to church sometime to give Joani a friend. Dana has been talking with her boyfriend about the church a little as well! He even said he was going to take them to church but it didn't end up happening. They would be a great family and I pray and pray that we can help them.
We played a lot of soccer this morning. In the rain. I got soaked.
So Its been a good week, no complaints, other than the fact that the Coïné family might be moving to St. Joseph (out of our area) which would cut our members that can drive people to church in half. Our investigators are going well, we had a baptism Saturday, so it can't be too bad.
I want to thank you for talking about the week! I feel like I know whats going on over there now! Sometimes I finish emails and everyone asks how the family and I realize that I don't know anything that's going on, but that was great! Thanks!
I also want to thank you for the talks that you sent me, they were good. I got the one about the missionaries and C.S. Lewis. I have really started to like listening to talks, and I recommend that you go onto BYU.edu and listen to the speeches on there. They are really great. They are basically general conference talks that are twice as long and they don't hold anything back. We download 4 or 5 of them every Monday and listen to them in the car throughout the week. I suggest you listen to Pres. Eying's talk "Waiting on the Lord" its from a long time ago so he doesn't sound at all the same. Then Oak's "Sins and Mistakes" Then you have to listen to ALL the one's from Elder Holland, because they are amazing. Especially, "Remember Lot's Wife" and "However Long and Hard the Road" Enjoy!
As for things I need, I need a watch, a little cook book would be cool, another USB card would be nice if I could get one, you could even send that old one I had if you could find it. Maybe some photos of us as a family, I have those ones but I would like to show some others to people if I can.
I am going to be starting ch.3 lesson 5 this week in PMG if your still keeping up with me.
I love all of you so much!
