Charlie's Christmas Suit
                                                                               It's cold in France!  

Bonjour everyone. I am so happy to be writing this email back home. This week was BUSY!   We did several exchanges and any time that we had in our area was spent with our recent converts. 

So we started off the week with the legendary Kahne family. We had a soiree familial (Family Home Evening) and taught them the game where everyone puts a name in a hat and then you guess who put which name in. I love them all so much it is unreal. I hope to one day go back and visit them ;) After that, the Albi Elders drove us up to Rodez so that we could do an exchange with the Rodez Elders. By the way, it is freezing here and it is FREEZING in Rodez. We drove through snow and got to their apt where we found out that their heater/hot water wasnt working :) But the exchange went well and we had a blast! I was with Elder Gossel from Hamburg, Germany and we talked to just about everyone in that ville
After the exchange we went to District Meeting up in Albi and then came back to Toulouse to do district meeting with Capitole the next day. Then we saw all of our recent converts.  It is difficult because we are the ones doing the new member lessons as well as the "Home Teaching" visits beacuse a lot of our recent converts haven't been assigned Home Teachers yet to help them get integrated into the Ward. But that will come, and I love our Elder's Quroum President. We were at his house doing service on Saturday.
Anyway, it was a great week and we will be doing plenty more exchanges this week before the transfer ends! That's right transfers are in a week. 

I love you. Remember that the Lord loves us all and even though we all have trials, we can be equipped with the Gospel of Jesus Christ to help us endure any difficulty with hope and patience.  Stay strong everyone!  He Lives!
