So I figure I'll have to do a full length version of this when I get home, but just for viewing pleasure and my laziness this week..We had a "finding day" the first day of the transfer when Elder Tidwell called up the other equipes here in Evry to let us know, "He lost his bleu.." The bus doors closed too fast and they got separated. Soeur Dionne and I found him just outside their apartment. First week in Paris and he finds a map and walks home. That-a-Elder-Dunkins!
Exchanges with Soeur Waite in Nogentand another picture from Versailles
Catherine took us on a walk through a beautiful park! She reminds me a lot of mom behavioral and conversational wise...(its a good thing)
Over at the Rio's home. They are such a fun family! They love reading books and have an entire corner of their living room dedicated to the latest and greatest novels.
So, guess what happened when we were in Paris the other week? One of the Soeurs suggested we go get crepes from this creperie of line 4, but we were having some difficulties finding it. After wondering just a little, we turned a corner and found it. And as we started heading towards it, a man and his wife wave to us from a restaurant next door saying, "Hi Sisters! We're from Camarillo, California!" And my response was, "I'M from Camarillo!!" I actually forgot their family name but the husband remembered being a counselor in the YSA ward while I was home.
And then my friend Jessica from school, BYU and my dance ensemble group turns the corner. And at that point, I just through my hands up and go running towards her to give her a hug. I was like, "HI! I'm a missionary! In Paris!" What a Heavenly, timely and pleasant surprise.
Us and Reba. She was one of our most favorite people! She's a member from Chicago that met her husband here in Paris when she was studying art.
And then...a "grimace" or funny photo with the Mfulani family. Sometimes, you just have to let go of that self-image and flaunt your excellent sense of humor. haha
And this is a ville that went out and visited because an american family just moved into our ward for the summer. And this is what your classic, gorgeous small villes look like-- gorgeous.This is just a little outside, inside perspective of all the wonderful people and places here in France.Next week they'll be spiritual experiences, no worries...
And that concludes our weekly tour. You can find the souvenirs at the gift shop on your way out. Thank you and Please come again soon!
Lots of love,
