Elder Bollard and Elder Spencer
Hey everybody! Elder Bollard reporting in from Pau, France. So THIS week was a really great and special one. It all started with a sister from Congo named Soeur Mwamba. The missionaries call her "mama Mwamba."  She is one my favorite people in Pau and her mom lives with her. I speak the lingala that I know to her. Needless to say, I'm in the family. :)  So anyways, on Wednesday we taught our ami Dylan at her house and it was really great. She testified hard core about Jesus and he liked it. We then ate fried chicken and some congo rice. Dylan left and we did some service for mama Mawamba. She was so thankful because her husband passed away 5 years ago and she doesn't have anyone around to lift heavy stuff. So Thursday and Friday passed by quick because we have to go to Lyon to arrange for Elder Spencer's visa (so that he can live in France). Saturday came and we get a call from Sr Mwamba who told us that her niece Jaqueline (who I contacted last transfer) wants us to come over and teach her and her husband and son on Monday (today)!  We just got back from our RDV with her family and it went SO WELL. We are coming back next week to help them move to another apt in Pau and the husband said that he wants us to come over every week to talk about Jesus. 

Other than that, we had our two ancien amis (Roger and Marie) come to church for the first time in forever this Sunday!  They loved it and the members were so happy to see them. They gave us a ride home and said they'd come next week. MIRACLE. 

The Daniels family with 6 kids (originally tracted out by Tori's nephew Cole) is doing well but it is hard to teach them with all of their kids running around. We are going to try to just teach the older members when they can. 

We are pumping up the less active work as well and it is going really well. We are seeing some really cool people with cool stories.

Also, I saw le tour de France come through Pau this past week muahaha (sorry Joe) I will send some pics and video.

Last good news. So if any of you remember the Skachkov family from Lyon, I talked to a sister serving there and she said that the whole family is fully active now and they have beencoming to church ever since my last Sunday there. I felt so happy it is unreal.  I love that family and they are working to go to the temple together now. 

The Church is true and Jesus Christ lives!
