France Paris Mission 2014-2016

Week 62 --- Week one as a father . . .

So this week was pretty cool. Elder Shaver and I met with the Passavant family on Tuesday to say goodbye as well as set up teaching appointments for their son Joshua. He is seven turning eight, but because he has some learning disabilities the president Silbermann asked us to go through the lessons with him before he turns eight.

Wednesday I met my new bleu, Elder Rollins. He is from Lehi. We hung out with Elder Nord and his new bleu in Paris for a little bit before we had to catch our trains. Then we had a meeting with our ward mission leader, brother Paporé. For dinner we got him his first kebab! Haha He couldn't even finish it

Then on Saturday we went into Paris for our DL training meeting, but because of construction we had to take a bus for 2 1/2 hours, then another train for 1 1/2 hours just to get to Paris. Then we had to do the same thing back afterwards........ That was horribly long.........

Sunday we had one of the funniest and coolest branch council meetings ever. Our branch president conspired with the DMB (branch mission leader) and his counselors to play a joke on all the sisters in branch council. They   convinced them that the stake was donating five turkeys to each branch and ward for their Christmas party, but they were all alive. The stake wanted the wards to have a turkey chase for the kids and then find someone to come and kill them for the dinner later that night. All of the sisters started freaking out! They were saying how barbaric and savage it was, and that it was going to traumatize the children haha! There is some weird stuff that happens
in French ward councils....haha!

Love you all!
