First letter from Belgium

bonjour, belgium is very cold lol and their are so many muslims. It is so hard to type on these key boards lol. So let me catch you up on whats been going on. Monday: Woke up super excited got ready we grabbed our bags and headed to the airport. Had an 11 hour flight and I didn't sleep a minute lol, we land in Paris at 11am on tuesday and it is beautiful. We got to got to notre dame, Eiffel tower btw my camera is broken it got smashed in my suit case ;( so yeah but then we go to the mission home and meet the pres. He is pretty cool and then meet our trainers mine is Elder Eldredge he is a big hawaiian who is from hawaii lol spelling is bad these computers are strange and no spell check. (I've changed some spelling to make it legible!) Anyways he is cool and we get along really well, I have done a lot of tracting already very little success but some. We have a baptism set up for the first week of jan so that would be awesome to get one already. French is so hard here they have strange accents in belgium and half speak dutch and whatever musliums speak haha. This is the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. And we never eat, I have to eat toast and oranges everyday lol I gonna die. But all is well I think haha love ya Elder Karl

Elder Karl's address is posted on the right of this blog.. International stamps are $1.10. All letters would be highly appreciated, I am sure!

  1. Oh, Shane. I know it is hard to continue to work when doors are slammed in your face--but remember, there are people there where you are that are ready to hear the gospel. If not, you would not have been sent there. Heavenly Father knows where there are people who will hear his voice though the missionaries. Keep trying. They are there--I pray you can find them. Praying for your success. Love you. Ruby Crawford
