March. It's March. - 2 mars 2015

I can't believe it's March already. February flew bye in a flash. It was a good month. :)

of Tahitian Dancing
on the stage at the church.
Well, this week was great. Full of Tahitian dancing, rendez-vous, referrals, French speaking, and also, all 3 of us were sick. BUT, that didn't stop us from having a great week.

The Lord blessed us with 3 new investigators, one of which came to church on Sunday and was just fabulous. Her name is Valerie. She met us a the Mairie (city hall) and we walked together to church. It was the first time meeting her and she CAME TO CHURCH! She's had one crazy life, but she said she wants to "turn the page over and start new". Well, the Atonement of Jesus
Samedi Sport! The crowd is growing!
Christ was done for us to do just that. Start anew. Because of Him we can start again and be clean. We have the opportunity to get up, dust ourselves off, rely on Him, and try again. That is a beauty of the Atonement. I have great faith that she will be baptized and I believe it will be soon. :)

Yesterday was the first time here in France where I really understood everything people said, but more importantly, felt the spirit SO strongly. I was overwhelmed with love and gratitude for the people of Nogent, those I serve and those with whom I serve. I bore testimony in the last minutes

of the meeting and just cried the whole way through. Thinking of all that I have experienced and those who I have been blessed to meet in the past 5 months just brings me to tears. I wouldn't trade any of it. Hermana Cami Sumsion, a dear friend from USU, wrote in her weekly email this week, "I am blessed everyday with trials. They are blessings because they help me turn to my Father in heaven." Amen. I couldn't write it any better.

I hope you are healthy, happy, and grateful. Make this week the

Be good. Do more. Look outward!

  1. Hello! I recently moved to Paris for university and I get a bit nervous going to new places alone so I was wondering if there would be anyway for me to go with someone to church out here or if I could sit with some missionaries when I arrive.

    Thank you for your help in advance!
