This week was so exciting! We're currently driving from Geneva to Lyon, so apologies if this is a little scattered.
Elder Wilkinson is the coolest! We get along great and he laughs at all my jokes, so that's nice. He has to drive now that he's here, and he's definitely never driven on the right side of the road before, nor has he driven a manual, and also the roads here are tiny and wavy and steep, so that's been exciting - we only almost died a few times when he hit the brake thinking it was the clutch. This transfer will be great!
Tuesday and Wednesday were pretty chill - we got lost in a sketchy part of Sion, which was pretty exciting, and then I made the greatest omelettes - definitely à highlight of my week.
Thursday was so fun! The Lausanne elders came into Martigny to do the baptismal interviews for two of our amis, and it was a blast!
Saturday was crazy! We did some service and had fondu with some members in the morning, then we got a call from the Hill Cumorah visitors center - apparently they'd received a call that a 79 year old sister had been in a skiing accident and was in the Sion hospital and needed a visit. It just so happened that we were driving past the hospital right that second, so we were able to stop in and give her a blessing, then we took her the sacrament on Sunday and set her up with members. Turns out she's a math teacher in Sudan, but is originally American, and has lived everywhere from Mongolia to Berlin to Latvia. Bref, it was super fun to get to know her and a big miracle!
Sunday was incredible! We had an awesome time at church - five of our Amis showed up! Then we had a great lesson with one of them - Carine - and a member family and talked about the plan of Salvation and the spirit was so strong! Then to top it all off, Aurélien and Abygaël were baptized! I'm realizing now that I probably haven't talked a lot about them. They're 10 and 9 years old, respectively, and they're from a part member family, and they're the coolest kids ever! The program went great, and it was so cool to see them make such a big and good decision. Awesome day!
Then today we visited Château Chillon on lac Leman (look it up, it's awesome) and I love Switzerland!
Anyways, this week was so good, and this next week should be fun too (and super busy). Funny highlight - there was this little kid making noise during the baptism and at one point he was yelling "Je veux me faire baptiser aussi"- "I want to be baptised too!"
Anyways, I'm loving the work and I'm having fun.
Merci et je vous aime !

We (I) accidentally threw away the parking ticket, and elder Wilkinson was awesome enough to dig through la poubelle to find it
The baptism !
