Miracles on Sunday

Bonjour ma famille!

I'll get the questions done, that I can.

I am sure that I will be able to Skype on Christmas Eve, I haven't actually gotten permission yet but I there have been people that needed to do it on other days in the past.  Also because French Mother's Day is another day then American, they call on different days.

I have absolutely no idea what to get. Elder Drennan says he wants some cool-aid haha!  I really want those temple photos.  Some more socks would be good, church and regular kind, my socks have started disappearing recently.  And also, believe it or not, it has been getting a little chilly at nights... I was thinking that it would be nice to have a thin blanket of some kind.  Yes, yes, I know, its going to be pretty tough trying to get used to Utah weather again

This week went by pretty quickly, but we saw some pretty great miracles on Sunday!  This week as usual we saw the Pommier family and they said that they would come to church again, but this time they did!  It was so great!  I was so happy seeing them come into the church!!  Then the best part was how everyone in the group went up and hugged them and welcomed them back.  Fr. Potan is going to get the Melchizedek Priesthood in December as well, and we had enough priesthood holders at church that I didn't have to bless the sacrament, all I had to do in the meeting was give a talk, which went alright.  Not the best one, but I wasn't at all nervous, so I am getting better!  Funny story, I forgot about it until my morning prayer Sunday morning.  So I didn't write a whole bunch, I just found scriptures and got up and talked about my subject for 20 min.  It went by pretty quickly, I was talking about missionary work so it wasn't too hard.

I have been really enjoying me some origami recently, thanks mom! haha  I got the temple done, doesn't look to great and I don't have a photo of it sadly, but maybe I'll get it next week.

I also got two letters from Bro.and Sis. Olsen in the ward this week.  If you could thank them from me that would be great!

I am sorry about the length of the letter but I had a lot of other people that I needed to write this week, which was unusual.  Hopefully I will be able to have more time next week.  I feel great and am very hopeful, and I feel like we are going to see a lot more miracles coming to  Basse-Terre soon!

je vous aime tous!
avec amour,
Elder Call

I made some snacks while everyone was in the shower today. I felt very French!  Sr. Telcide taught me how to make them on Martinique, they're really good...

And yes, as you can see in the picture I got very sun burnt today.  We played soccer.  It was SOOO fun though.  Very muddy, very hot, but we had a good time!
