Wow... I'm going to have to type fast this week. I have a lot of miracles to write about!!!
|Our favorite baguettes|
|Actually using chopsticks!|
Let's start off with the beginning of the week!! So we called just about every ancient ami we have in our area book (that's the most ancient ami fiches I've seen in my whole mission....) So we just set rdv after rdv and found SO many people that kind of fell beneath the cracks somewhere along the way. I have a few stories about this for this week. :)
|We wanted to porte this one so bad! Not sure if it's a house though.|
|Getting artsy with our pictures|
|Thanks for the cool pic Soeur Bagley|
|Replacement glasses arrived!|
|Sound check for this weekend's spectacular spectacular|
|Train ride to Oloron|
|Church in Pau|
|I love Oloron!!!|
|Construction in Oloron is still beautiful|
|Oloron reminds me of home (Carcassonne)|

|Hey Soeur Richardson, I found cheap sticky notes in France!|
|Are you proud? Look how much water I drank this week!!!|
So after that we porte-ed a bit because we couldn't find the ancient amis house and then we started trying to find a bus to take home. Sunday schedule is the weirdest and there are practically NO buses. We started walking and by then it was dark and we were having such a hard time finding somewhere. We ended up walking in back roads and I started to have the weirdest feeling. Never felt anything like it before. Then I heard a voice speaking to me "Don't get on the bus. Call a member." We checked the bus times and it came in about 30 minutes, I just knew we couldn't be outside, or get on the bus. And there was no way I was ignoring a prompting that strong. My companion at first thought I was just a little bit crazy because I'm always anxious when we're out when its dark. But of course she agreed we should listen to the prompting. We camped out in US Pizza (to avoid being in the streets...) and started calling everyone we could. Seriously no one could come and get us. Finally (bless her heart) Aline (Leang) came to the rescue AGAIN - she always helps us, I seriously love her. Still don't know what would have happened had we been on the bus or outside but as soon as we were in the car with Aline, the horrible feeling went away instantly.
We wrote her a poem to thank her for everything she does for us that I just have to send home.
|My beautiful companion|
Aline, Aline you are so great.
You've picked us up when it was late.
You speak English like a boss.
You probably even know the word "dross" (don't know if that's really a word, but it rhymes...)
When we need google, you're always there.
No one could replace you and they wouldn't dare.
Maintenant on écrit en français,
parce qu'on a pensé que c'était une bonne idée.
On sait que l'église est vrai,
et l'évanglie apporte la paix.
C'est un poème de nos coeurs.
On vous aime sans fin
She responded with this. :)
Chères amies, je vous aime
Tout comme les nems...! :-D
Je ne said pas faire de bon rimes
Mais au moins, ce n'est pas un crime...
I'm glad you called me
So you can go home safely!
Ahhhh we died. I love Aline. I love our ward. I love Pau. I love my life. I love the gospel. And I love being a missionary.
Have a great week family!!!
Je vous aime!!
