La meilleure partie est que ce est vrai
Hey everybody! What a great week in France! So many great memories made this week. We started off with a train ride to Lyon where we attended Mission Leadership Council.  I saw some mission friends whom I haven't seen in a long time!  I spent some time with old companions and good friends as well as with President Roney! We spent the entire meeting talking about families.

After MLC we spent the night in Lyon and planned for Zone Training. The following day we took a train back to Toulouse and had lunch with the Van Tonders and continued planning.

So, for Zone Training, my comp and I and the Sister Training Leaders presented something called "Project Elijah," which is a new initiative that the mission is presenting on the family. Our contacting, teaching mode, everything has changed and we are focused on the family. We had the Van Tonders come and we interviewed them about their grandparents. The spirit was strong and we helped the missionaries recognize what the spirit of Elijah really was. 

We also received a really cool questionnaire about the family that we use when speaking with people. The questions are "which member of your family has made the biggest sacrifice for you?" "how do you feel when you reflect on this person?" and "how has this person helped you become the person you are today?"

After Zone Training we had an exchange with the elders in Rodez and tried out the questionnaire and saw tons of miracles! We set up two rdvs and got three mini discussions in one hour. Later that night, we went to the Pichons and interviewed them about their families. It was rad!

After that we finished off the week with some cool rdvs and we went to another wedding at the chapel on valentines day.... yeah it was hilarious and we talked with some really cool people. 

It was a great week and tonight we are teaching a girl who wants to be baptized!  We are going to see her and her mom every monday for the next six weeks! 

Zone Conference in Bordeaux this week! I'll send pictures :)

I love you all and I wish you a great week!!
