Late letter

Bonjour Ma Famille!

Hope things are A-OK stateside! Things are going pretty good still over here!  Even though today was a little stressful. We had to stay over at Lamentin with Elder Johnston and Telga so we could get up early to take the car into the shop.  Afterwards we were stuck in Jarry until we could get picked up after 2 hours. Then we had to grab our stuff and bus it all the way back to Basse-Terre.... and when we got here the power was out so we had to wait to email... That's why this letter is so late.  It was a rather stressful P-day, and tomorrow we're going to have to take another bus back up to pick the car up.... Should be fun.

On the good side, the week went well.  Yes we had an area conference of a sort.  President Packer, Elder Holland, and Sis. Oscarson gave some great talks.  They also said they were going to be going around the islands sometime, but they never said which ones.... Fingers crossed they stop by Guadeloupe!  The conference was great but it was aux AbĂ®mes so it was difficult to get people from our area up there.

David and Cindy are doing great!  David just drove by in his car as we were walking to the Cyber-Base and waved to us.  I like that guy! Haha  Cindy had some struggles with her driving test, the instructor failed her on some little thing and she wasn't very happy about it.  She had enough points in the test to have her pass but the instructor wouldn't let her get her license because of the one mistake.  So she was a little upset the last time we saw her.  But normally their interview for baptism will be this Thursday.  David reads the Book of Mormon all the time, its incredible to think that he didn't even believe in God before we met him.

Teaching French is super challenging!  It makes me really appreciate that I can speak now. Elder S-J is a great missionary and French is all that he has to work on.  I don't know how I am doing as a trainer, I think I am doing alright... Sometimes I forget I'm training, he's just so great!

We finished up cutting all the trees down on the church property, my hands got pretty blistered from swinging the machete so much.  Maybe you should invest in a machete!  It makes weeding a lot easier!

Not sure what else to say about this week.  We are in week 4 and the transfer ends 28 Fevrier. Its blowing by!  I just realized I have 3 transfers left after this one!  Holy cow!  I keep forgetting and then remembering just about every Monday haha!

Well that's about all I can think of this week!  Have a good one!

avec amour,
Elder Call
