Hey everybody!  This week was another one for the books.
So, we will start this fairy tale of a week with an unreal miracle. Remember the miracle I talked about a couple weeks ago of the girl who came up to me in the Gare (bus station)? Well, she's like a double miracle. Her name is Camille and she is from RUSSIA. So for our lesson, we spoke with her in the young adults building and she told us that in Russia she had met with the missionaries for 2 months straight and she went to church and even talked with the bishop. She said something along the lines of "when I was being taught by the missionaries, I was going to be baptized," but then she moved here. She and her mother (who is sick) live in a small nearby town called Ardech. 

I gave her a baptismal date for the 17th of May and she is stoked!  We gotta get them to church and integrated with the ward members. Such a MIRACLE!  We took her to an FHE at our less active Russian family's house and it was so great, the Skachkovs.... he follows me on insta now haha

Some other good news is that I am an UNCLE AGAIN! haha I have been and uncle for like 10 years and I love it so much! I am so excited to meet her :) 

The Clarks fed us Mexican food again this week! They are unreal.  Also the Bishop of our ward here, who is also the head of family history in France had us over for dinner. I have made some sweet friends here in Lyon. Me and my homie Elder Du Pre took pics for the mission and I will send them next week. Maybe they'll be in the Ensign... Also, Elder Higham from Mission Viejo is my man!

I want to say how proud I am of my family. Each member is such a great example to me. Bollards are strong. We have been prepared by the Lord for the trials that we are facing. He is aware of each and every one of us. I love you all and my prayers are with you.
One Love,
Elder Bollard

Bishop Lepore and his family. His youngest boy's name is Charlie so it freaks me out every time his mother calls his name.
