This week, we had zone conference in Nancy. It was awesome. We had some great formations by the STLs about testifying about the Book of Mormon, the zone leaders talked about helping our Amis to get over their fears, Sœur Babin talked about mission culture, the Assistants talked about using ward members and President talked about planning for each transfer. It was so fun. President made a lot of funny jokes that made everyone laugh. And we were very much enlightened by everyone who spoke.
Then we went back to Nancy to do exchanges with our Zone Leaders, Kelley and Stephenson. We had a great time. Elder Kelley and I went to visit an awesome member and then the next day, I went with Stephenson to this small town about 15 minutes away by train to look for a referral. It was the smallest city I've ever been in Europe. But it was very nice and everyone was white! Overall, we had a great time with our Zone Leaders. By the way, Nancy is a pretty nice ville by itself.
We got to see Maxence again this week. He's still apprehensive about coming to church, but he is still getting his Book of Mormon reading in. He's progressing slowly, but he's still looking forward to seeing us each week. We're feeling good about the direction he's going right now.
Yesterday, again we expected 2 amis to come to church for certain. Sacrament meeting started and ended and they hadn't showed up yet. However, right after sacrament meeting ended, our ami, Phillipe, who we've only seen twice, decided to come for the last two hours! We showed the Restoration video for him in second hour and he loved it. It was such a shock to see him at church because we haven't had contact with him for about four weeks until now!
Aller les bleus!
