Tuesday, October 14, 2014
Bonjour who ever reads this! I hope you are all doing well and loving life. I had such a great week! I got to go on 2 exchanges this week. The first one was with Elder Brown one of our Zone leaders and we got to have some pretty cool experiences! We went to Louise and Nathanael's house to do there baptismal interviews and they passed! i will talk more about that later! Then in the morning we woke up early and went to the park to play basketball, because Elder Brown likes to play also so it was a nice break and workout. Then the next day I went to Paris to do an exchange with Elder Perry! He is from Tahiti so he is a froncophone! Speaks french as his first language so it was alot of fun to just speak french all day and night. A good test you could say but it went well. We got to go to a members house for dinner and got to eat tacos and play games and it was a blast! The hard part was that we played a game that is like "taboo" Where you have to get your teammate to guess a word but you can't use all the words listed underneath so it makes it hard to guess. But to make it even harder we played in french so it was hard haha but it was a lot of fun.Then the exchange ended and came back to Chartres and we had dinner with a part member family! And there son who is 9 really wants to be baptized so we have another baptismal date! We are also gonna try and teach the dad who is not a member so should see a ot of good things come out of that. Then on saturday we packed our things and went to Évry for the baptism of Louise and Nathnanael!
It was so awesome and the spirit was so strong! I got to baptize the boy Nathanael who is 12. Was such an awesome experience and he is like a brother to me. Really loving my mission and so blessed to get to see all of these miracles! Then after the baptism we all went back to a members house and had a little party! We had a huge dinner and it was like half of the church and it was super good food! Then we had church and it went well had some amis come to church then after church Mark and Happy the people who got baptized 2 weeks ago brought a bunch of food from Nigeria and fed over 50 people! So everyone is just so happy here and the members and amis all just love each other and we are all just becoming a family! The church is true! Thank you all for your support and love!<3 -Elder Karl
