GO ON chloe..memorising...you know thats weird you say that mum because in one of my personal studies i read the living christ!! haha!! and oh my goodness i am going to follow in the great example of my beautiful sister and memorize it all too.- thank you for your example chloe. It is an amazing thing to read, and reflect upon. Oh how much i truly love our saviour, i know that he died for us. I was actually studying about love this week. Trying to improve how much i love everyone i meet, members, amis just everyone really. And if we ever find ourselves finding it hard to love another, we need to look at the life of christ and see how after the people he had served and loved had crucified him he still found the capacity to love them and ask his father to forgive them. The love of christ is something we all need to try and search and found and apply. But thats cool we studied the same thing!!
For president roneys last week we are feeding as many sheep as possible this week and just working the hardest we have ever worked to give him one last gift before he goes. we have been trying to feed 5,000 this last 4 weeks and this is our last week so here we go!! we have our last mission conference with him this thursday in lyon, which should be fun and VERY SAD too as he is amazing. but i am so excited to meet president brown and see where he is going to take the france lyon mission. i am so excited to see his vision. so i will tell you all about that next week!
so anyway est-ce que vous etes pret pour ma semain???? HERE WE GO........
so i have really learnt something on my mission about the importance of attitude. your attitude towards everything really changes how much you take from every single day. This week we have lost a couple of amis etc and it would be easy to get down etc BUT NO WAY. attitude is everything. and once you decide how you are going to look at things you see miracles and of course we have seen miracles again this week.
FUNNY MOMENT...i think this might be a ``have to be there moment`` BUT im going to tell you anyway!! So we sang this sunday in sacrament...(i know father you are proud!! haha) anyway so we met up with the elders to practise during the week. BUT because elders and sisters cannot be in the chapel att he same time. to practise we went inside to play the piano and they went around the side of the chappel and sang throught he window. BUT the window that opens is really high so we practised. But we couldnt hear them and they could only hear themselves outside!! haha it was just sooo hilarious because we could see their mouths moving but nothing. hahaha we, well actually only me cried with laughter and Elder Price! but it was sooo funy!!
Another funny but sad moment. I got on the bus and a woman sat next to me and just turned to me, i smiled, and she just started to cry her eyes out, and told me how her dog died (which is the sad bit) but her head was on my shoulder, hahahaha and her tears were on me, and ok guys im understanding more french, but crying french?? no way!!! can you just imagine everyone looking and this lady is crying her eyes out with her head on my shoulder. haha we ended up praying. that was the only thing i could think of tocomfort her!! hahaha anway...
MIRACLE: contacting with the family questionaire and we contact a lady. and the questions make her cry because she just loves her family so much. and she has had a very difficult life but her family has always been there for her. etc and we end up teaching her. and we have seen her twice this week. and she has started reading the Book of mormon. and has so many questions! IT was sooo coool!! she is a miracle!
We went to a members house for lunch and he has THE COOLEST CAR. he came to pick us up and...i will send you a photo!! haha it was so funny we were all squished in this little, but cooolest car ive ever been in!!!...
So i thought about writing a few little things i have learnt about swiss...
1. if you do not like cheese, you might aswell leave. you are not accepted into the society....haha!!
2. they do not refigerate their milk!!!!! weird!!
3. they eat salad all day, everyday, before the meal, during the meal, for dessert! haha! SERIOUSLY SO MUCH SALAD!
4.They are an extremely friendly people. We contact and ALOT of swiss people are happy to talk and we end up talking for half an hour sometimes with each person!! But sometimes and alot of the time we say BOnjour!! and 9 times out of 10 they say ``do you know me??`` and we are like NOPE WE ARE JUST MISSIONARIES. i dont think they are used to nice people---
5. with members you do the kiss thingy on the cheek.....i cant tell you the amounts of times you nearly kiss people because you go different ways!! ahaha!!
6.EVERYONE has scooters!! its so weird!! the other day we were walking down a hill and a granny comes past on a scooter!!! everyone has a scooter!!!
7. Oh , and they LOVE herbal teas!! they have them ALL THE TIME. you like herbal teas they will accept you!! haha!!
Just a few little things for ya!!!
MIRACLE - we set up a RDV with a less active member. who is sooo lovely and in the car she told us how she is living with a man, her partner, he isnt a member etc but she wants him to take the lessons. But he gets home late every night so he wont make it. We start teaching and who walks in? YEP the partner and we teach him. and he want to take the missionary lessons. MIRACLE.
With members alot this week we have been sharing a little message on christ, and sharing testimonies etc. watching the videos and sharing scriptures. and i know you have heard this before but i know that jesus christ really is the son of God, and he really did suffer for us, because of him we can overcome everything, because of him we can become someone better, the list coul go on forever but i love him so much!!
STUDY TIME -
``keep your eyes on the saviour, care more about what he thinks of you`` - we need to care more about how we look in the eyes of our saviour more than those in the world. He is the one who counts.
This week has gone quickly AGAIN. where is the time going i tell you. i have some pictures to send aswell!!!
BUT I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!
HAVE ANOTHER INCREDIBLE WEEK!!!
LOVE YOUR ONE AND ONLY....
