Hey... I have lots of trains today...I'm getting transferred to Bordeaus, I'm on my way to Bordeaux right now well first we go to Montpellier then to Toulouse then Bordeaux. So I left at like 10 and I'll get there at likeor something like that. It's a weird feeling that I will be finishing in this last town! It's really weird actually! The time is going to go by so fast for me learning the town then it's gonna be the end! But I'm excited what I have to accomplish there. My comp in elder Caramelli and you'll never guess that he is Tahitian as well. Two Tahitians in a row! Pretty cool. This will be his 3rd transfer in Bordeaux so he'll probably do one with me and then leave and ill get someone to finish me off. It's really weird as a missionary we serve 16 transfers and right now I'm in my 15th. It's really weird to think that the end is so close! But anyways I'm excited!But yeah I'm doing good it was sad to leave Lyon! I love a lot of people there and it was hard to leave! But what I love is that in every place I'm at I'm able yo connect with someone and I can't wait to do that in Bordeaux! It's funny cause my trainer Gerret Sebra served here as well. But besides that I'm doing really good, got all my thing in my bags and just chillin in the train. My seat is all alone from the others it's weird being alone! I love my mission, I have learned so much and my love for our Savior has grown so much. I have such a love for the French people as well. I love my mission i love that I get to serve and love and teach and help people become closer to our Savior. Have a great week. Here are a few pictures. Love you all!

Bonjour......That's true convert baptism are the best! The spirit is always so strong for the baptism of converts.I love about home is that the organization of the church and each ward is so good. For the most part it's so much better than here! The conferences are always good but I find just in general chez nous it's really just more organized how it's suppose to be!We have been trying to take it easy for elder Agnie because of his concussion so that's been really different cause I have never had a comp be sick or have to stay in at all really not more than a couple days but now it's been like 2 weeks in a row and then one week when he was sick at the first of the transfer. It's been a different experience for me there are always things to learn tho even when we don't feel like we are really doing anything but really we are doing a lot contacting or amis and members and trying to most to stay in contact with Everyone and one of our amis is doing really well and like we did even see him a lot in the week just by Skype and messenger it's so cool how much he's been progressing.This week we had a mission conference with like 60 people there and basically I had to come up with a lunch for 60 people. So that was kinda stressful and then we had to so a skit for the conference as well and my comp is suppose to take it easy because of his concussion like not thinking to much and we had to do transfer recommendations all alone and it was just really busy really really really busy. Haha and the sisters were support to help us but didn't even do anything. But it's all good I got it done and it ended up good and everyone was happy haha they were complaining at first cause it was sandwiches but they were really good we had a lot of stuff! Also this week I was translating in sacrament for the testimonies and the member that her husband is the miracle man got up and looked straight at me and thanked us for being like the only people to go help him and help her. It was powerful and also sad cause we have been the only people in our whole ward to go visit him. But WOW every time i see him it's like WOW it's so powerful the last time we saw him asked me to give him a blessing and after we had some other elders with us and they were like wow we have never felt the spirit so strong before it's so powerful. For sure the most spiritual thing I have experienced here in Lyon maybe on my whole mission. All these experiences and challenges help us and guide us and make us better I know that. It's hard sometimes but it's all worth it.Then today we went and played basketball at president browns house and I dunked it playing dunk ball and shattered the backboard. Haha it was a hard one haha it was pretty cool tho I've never done that before! I feel bad that I broke it tho.But yeah that was my week mama! We find out where I go thus weekI'll let you know! I'm excited to see what happens! I love you lots mom, please send my love to everyone. I miss them all, I love my family so much. Wigity wigity wigity!
