No English in our villa
Sorry about yesterday everyone, but we had an awesome zone conference. :)So a little bit about becoming a trainer. For those of you who know my geneology on the mission my grandmother is Tongan, my mother is Somoan, so it was no surprise when the day before getting my blue came that I had a dream that I was going to be with a Polynesian....not the best dream because she was sitting on me...but a dream nontheless.
Her name is Soeur Tehoiri, she is Tahitian. :) Polynesian just runs in the family, i'm the oddly white person. So luckily she speaks French, unluckily, she doesn't speak English. So now for language study each day I teach someone English, its weird.

I think this picture says everything about my week. :)
Its winter here in France. That means that as missionaries get up to go out you put on your leggings, then your scarfs, next goes hats (yes I had to buy hats, its apparently a rule). Giant coats go on after the hats, and then you put your boots on, but not before you wrap your feet in trash bags so that the water doesn't get through your boots and soak your feet. Then you nicely put on your gloves. After you have all the battle gear you leave your apartement, to do what? BAPTIZE PEOPLE!!!
So like no big deal, but Soeur Obel was baptised!!!!!!!! So so so so awesome! Each companionship in our city had a baptism yesterday. It was so sweet. And totally stressful, and totally awesome.
Soeur Obel has been a long time running to be baptized. It's been a 12 year story, and I don't know why the Lord let me be here for her baptism, because seriously I did nothing, it was all her and the Lord. But it's so awesome. And its so awesome watching someone you love, that you have worked so hard for go under those waters. It was a pretty awesome day.
I just don't have much else to say for the week. I feel like the picture should say everything else to you guys. :) Love you all, keep being awesome.
