A great week in Evry 

Sorry you guys, this will be a short one. I wasn't going to write one today, but Sœur Walker insisted it happened. But this last week in Evry was pretty good for us.
So our mission has a way of porting called Montana way, that we are supposed to do, its like offering to pray for the families. Frankly I hadn't seen it work and neither had my companions, but mission president says to do it, so we were doing it.
Anywho, we had extra time we hadn't planned for, so it was my turn to pick where we go porting. So we got on a bus and I picked a stop as we went, then we walked to a street that I felt good about and knocked on the first door.
It opened, we did Montana way, they let us in. And mom you'll love this. They are Italian, so there is a bit of a language barrier, but we're figuring it out. It was a Young couple, they said we could come back.
So after we taught them we walked down to the next door and knocked. They opened, we did Montana way, they let us in. This time it was a big family. We taught them, and said a prayer, at the end we looked up and the mother way crying. They said we could come back.
In one hour we found 7 new amis. We almost set the record for the week of finding new amis this week. It was really an incredible moment for me. Previously I had received a blessing that said that if I can find all the joy and happiness here in France that I would feel if I was with my family. I felt it.
The members here are really great, they have decided I look like I am from Little House on the Prarie, and have debated if I look like I could be related to Michael Jackson, they say yes because i'm white enough. This week they are making me eat all the French specialties, it was an outrage to them that I hadn't had them yet. So snails and frog legs, and gross stuffed duck bladder here I come.
That's about all I have to write for today. I love you all and miss you. I hope you are all getting ready for General Conference this week. It's pretty exciting over here. And I will tell you all what I am telling all our amis and our inactives. If you listen to general conference will a specific question in mind, you will find your answer.
I love you, I miss you, I pray for you.
Sœur Jackson.
