Salut tout le monde !
This week was crazy! We started off with an exchange here in Béziers with some new Elders whose comps were in Lyon for MLC. I got to hang out with Elder Weber all day, which was super fun. I don't know the ville very well so we definitely just got lost all day haha. We worked a bunch with the Klemasz couple in training members on their responsibilities as far as missionary work goes.
Then on Thursday we went to Perpignan for our district meeting, which was awesome! Love my new district! The meeting went well - big news - we got Facebook! We're just supposed to use it for missionary purposes (posting spiritual thoughts and contacting amis), but it should be really cool!
Then on Friday we organized an awesome branch activity where we played games with everyone (bowling, made people eat donuts off strings, etc) so we could invite amis and get to know the members and they all had an awesome time. I love my branch already!
On Sunday Elder Shirley gave a killer talk, but none of our amis ended up showing... Hopefully next week though :)
Today we got to spend time with the sœurs in Perpignan, who were here for their legality stuff, which was a blast! We checked out a sweet cathedral and got some lunch.
Anywho, gotta go but I love y'all tons!
Gros bisous !
I forgot! Crazy story for the week! I had a freaky/ended-up-being-kind-of-cool thing happen the other day! There's this super odd older less active lady in our branch named Aimée, and she has tons of issues. Like, she texts us all the time saying she's being attacked by demons, and asks us for blessings like three times a week. So then the branch president told us she's actually on like eight different drugs and is supposed to be in a mental institution and that he doesn't feel comfortable with us seeing her until she gets some professional help. She seemed super nice, just kind of weird when we talked to her before, so we didn't really believe him. But when she texted us Friday to come visit, we didn't respond, and like two days later we got a text full of french cuss words and really vile, passive agressive stuff from her. So long story short we were super confused and mad, and were thinking about just going over to her house to confront her and get her to talk to the branch pres about her problems, but then we were praying about it, and in the middle of the prayer I suddenly realized that "Aimée" means "loved" in French, and I had this feeling like "whatever you do about the situation, remember she's loved by Someone." Anywho, we're still going to try to get her to a mental hospital, but it was a pretty cool experience.
Okay love you guys have a good week!
