saw during one of our train correspondances, Evreux
This week overall went very well. In brief, I Love Cergy and I couldn't be happier to be here. I will be brief in my email because my email is kind of the same every week (everything is amazing) BUT wait I have to be careful and not take any of this for granted. As Gerard Causse told us in General Conference, we have to be happy with what we have and never take the wonders of life for granted. And honestly there are soo many good things happening here in Cergy, and in our district. Our area is the northwest suburb of Paris, and we have some extremely beautiful places to work. Oh man, this week's activities took us around our area and beyond, into Rouen, Mantes, Paris, and beautiful cities in between. (Man, Elder Jones are you just on vacation?) Yeah, I should probably work harder. Events of the week included the baptism of a kid in the ward, visiting some very promising investigators, and surprising (but of course expected on a mission) miracles. morning we headed off to Rouen for our district meeting.

This week a kid in the ward got baptized. The service was really well done, and elder Harris and I cleaned out the font. Even better than the service, one of our investigators came to the service! She and her son liked it, and they're also considering baptism, they aren't absolutely sure yet because they haven't read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it which is essential. Another investigator Z. and his family would like to get baptized and first he and his wife have to get married, which he's ok with! (phew). There's so much good happening here and the most important thing is to stay humble and happy. Sometimes I scare myself into thinking that I'm becoming prideful and letting my priorities slip, but then I just have to remember not to freak myself out, stay calm, and continue to share the gospel with whoever gets put in our path. Man it's so difficult but so worth it. Continue strong everyone. If you want a supercharged study of the scriptures study out of the New Testament and Book of Mormon. That's what we're doing. It's amazing!
