June 9

This was a week full of strange and miraculous miracles. So basically me and Finneran were basking joy, plus it got warm, so we got to buy ice cream on top of it all.
So we were walking down the street and this tinted window black car pulled over, and this tattooed black kid got out, a bunch of black gangsters in the car, and he came running up to us. First reaction was of course 'i'm getting taken'. But then he was like 'your the sister missionaries?! I've been looking for the Church here, i'm a member but have been inactive for a long time'. You could tell that by the looks of him. So we chatted for a second and then gave him the address of the Church and our phone number, praying that he wasn't going to bomb the chapel later that night.
And then a few days later we got a call from him. He asked us if we have Finding Faith in Christ DVDs, and we said yes and asked why. Apparently he has a girlfriend that he told he was a member of the Church to and that he want to go back, and she wants to take the missionary lessons and learn more! So we fixed a dinner appointment with them and he was like 'i remember the missionaries made really good cookies, feel free to bring some!' It was so awesome! Only on the mission can a creepy, crazy experience turn into a miracle.
Then another miracle we had this last week was while we were out contacting and we passed this lady and introduced ourselves, and right away she said 'oh your the Church with Joseph Smith'. Now I need to make it clear that no one in France knows Joseph Smith, they know the mormons and polygamy, but not Joseph Smith. So we were really caught off guard and asked how she knew Joseph Smith. So apparently she had seen the Book of Mormon in the store and wanted to read it. So she bought a Book of Mormon, and read it, and then in the inside was a little pamphlet about Joseph Smith, and she read that too. It was the craziest, coolest thing. So we were like 'we would love to explain the book and our beliefs better to you'. And she was all 'I dont have time right now! But come back Friday and we can! Around 4'. It was the coolest thing you guys. Huge miracles from the Lord. Its amazing the people he actually does prepare for us!
So I hope you all have a wonderful week! And see all the miracles that the Lord puts directly in our paths. Some pull over and stop us, others we have to put forth the effort to get them, but dont let one pass you by!!! Love you all!!!
