Bonjour tout le monde! So I can now testify that it is true, spiritual confirmations come true! Even if it is over a year and half later. Because this little lady is heading up to Bruxelles!! Belgium here I come!!! haha
So this week was a good last week to the transfer! We were able to meet the new president, President Babin, and his wife. Of course I already knew them, so I already knew that I would love them. But having an interview with them was fun! They seem like they will be amazing and they are so excited to be here with us! We all will miss the Poznanski's a lot but we know the Babin's are very ready to be here. :) President Babin shared with us mulitple times this scripture in Alma 5:14, "And now behold, I ask of you, my brethren of the church, have ye spiritually been born of God? Have ye received His image in your countenances? Have ye experienced this mighty change in your hearts?" He expressed his opinion on how important it is when we meet someone in the road that they literally see the difference in our eyes. It's all about starting with ourselves personally, and then that difference can really be seen and truly help those around us. Another quote he said was, "Today is the first day of the rest of your mission." :) It was a really great conference. I am just excited to have them, and the conference was made even better when they had us listen to 'You are loved' by Josh groban. haha That's a good start to being President.
We also had a cool experience with some members this week! So we are in the process of planning a ward party and we shared a message with the members about inviting their friends to this activity. We received a text a few days later from one of the members and she told us that she had been praying to know what she can do to help the missionary work go forward here in st. nazaire. She had the impression to invite 5 certain families to the activity so she did! And 2 of these families have already said yes to coming! :) It is really cool to see the members getting more involved and excited about missionary work! It makes all the difference!
And I got the most adorable message from the Swanepoels this week!! They said 'Thank you for being part of our family! We love you so much! You made a difference in our lives, you took our hand and lead us back to our God. We are blessed to know you. 'Till we meet again!' Sometimes you just have to love being a missionary.
So goodbye beach, goodbye France. Hello Belgium, where I will loose all my french! haha Have a wonderful week everyone!!! Love you all!!!
Love, Soeur Jackson
