22 Oct

We’ve really been struggling lately to teach people, particularly investigators. We meet people through contacting or porting and they setup rendez-vous with us or give us their numbers and then they’re not there for their rendez-vous or never pick up their phone or just ignore us or… they just go missing…


Either way, we had a good week. I enjoyed it, at least. And today marks the beginning of yet another transfer. Time is faassst. We spent nearly all of Saturday doing service with some members. WE TOOK DOWN TREES!!! Okay, us elders didn’t really take down the trees. We mostly piled up the newly made logs and tore twigs of branches and put them in piles to be shredded. Haha. It was fun.

Yesterday was especially fun. We got to organize a family home evening with one of the families in the ward. They have a couple of really young children so we weren’t entirely sure what we should do for an activity. So we thought for a while and said, why not “Don’t Eat Pete!?” So we drew up a “Don’t Eat Pete” chart, except we called it, “NE MANGE PAS PIERRE!” We explained the game to them and I’m not so sure they got the point of it right away. But after a couple of rounds we were all laughing and having a good time yelling, “NE MANGE PAS PIERRE!!” Hahahaha!

I don’t know why “Don’t Eat Pete” is fun. But it is.

And we’re excited for this Saturday. We’re having another baptism here in Valenciennes! It’s the baptism of the two girls of one of the recent convert families! We’re super excited!! Baptisms are the best and everyone is always happy afterwards.

Hope your day is awesome,
Elder Saul Marquez

P.S. – I have to be careful what I write on here now because the members here in Valenciennes somehow found my blog and are now carefully watching everything I write. Ils comprennent l’anglais.
