Revenons-en a' nos moutons...

Bonjour ma famille!

How is everybody! just to let you know the baptism was not scheduled for last Saturday, but THIS Saturday. So if you all can keep David and Cindy in your prayers that would be amazing. I don't think I have prayed for anyting more in my life. 

Things are going good other than that. David and Cindy had their baptismal interviews on Thursday. It went well and now we just have to keep going to Saturday. They were really sick yesterday and couldn't make it all the way up to Catpesterre for fast Sunday, but we are going to try and see them everyday up to Saturday. 

I really don't have much else to say about this week.  Nothing too extravagant happened. My studies have been going really good. I started a thing were I write down all the titles of Christ that I find and their references. I have only gotten through 2 Nephi and the list is pretty substancial. I have really loved studying the Gospel and plan to keep studying the rest of my life. The scriptures have opened up my understanding so much. Even though it may take a long time to get answers and sometimes we don't get the answers that we are looking for but they come in due time. Who's up for some companionship studies when I get home?! I'm pumped to share what I've learned but it would probably take too long for email format and I'm just going to wait until I get home to get real in depth.

I've had some fun with finding French idioms and sharing them with members haha. There's one that I use all the time. "Revenons-en à nos moutons" which means literally "lets get back to our sheep" basically it means to get back on subject. I use it just about every night during nightly calls with the other missionaries because I enjoy getting off topic too much haha. I shared it with Fr. Duflo, he understood which made me super happy haha! 

Last night we went to the Duflos house and sang hymns on their front porch. I love singing hymns. Ever since you sent me that article about memorizing hymns I have been going crazy with them. I've memorized around 50 already. Its going to be so hard to come back and have to sing in English again. To be honest I kinda like the hymns better in French.... haha! So thanks for that article, it helped me a bunch!

Hope you all have a great week!

love ya bunches!
avec  amour,
