|Goodbye! Last pic on the RER. This guy was playing some of Chopin's music! It was great!|
I am so happy to be serving in Blois. Here's how things went at the end of Torcy;
|Saying Goodbye to "K"|
I said goodbye to quite a few members and Amis, like K, J,
and Y, then took the RER to Paris, where I met my new companion, Elder Smith. We took a train for two hours into the center of France. Blois changes a lot from a cookie-cutter Parisian suburb, such as Torcy.
Rolling hills with ancient houses and tiny alleys and massive
cathedrals and castles dominate the landscape here. I saw, while driving to the apartment, a giant castle. 'Uh..(with a growing smile of disbelief) is that a castle, Elder Smith?' "Yeah, it's right down the street from our place." Then we pull into our apartment only a few minutes away. So that's my first impression of Blois.
|Chateau in Blois|
Guess. What? We teach piano to the church members here! I got to teach piano and it was so much fun....and we have a casio piano in our apartment. So I play it pretty often and that's great because I've missed playing the piano. Elder Smith is really good at playing the piano, and so far, I really enjoy serving with him. We are going to have lots of fun together and I hope we will baptize people too.
Either way it'll be fun.
|I Love our Casio Piano!!|
|Our Apartment in Blois|
Outside our Apartment in Blois
the mission has been hard. But hard is good! Hard means we're progressing. I'm happy that I get to progress up until the very last day of the mission, and well after.
God loves all of you! Thank you!
Love Elder Jamison Jones.
|Eating Crepes with Elder Smith in Paris|
PS. Saturday I went to Paris and ate a crepe for all of you. Well mostly it was for me, but still, it was good. Also the members here are very considerate of us, I don't know them well yet, but I'll get around to it. Bisous!
Abby abby abby, what an amazing thing! I am so surprised and happy, I cant believe it. I sent you a letter in the mail. I was coming up the escalator stairs in Chatlet les Halles when I got wifi, and I watched the video right away of Abby opening her call and I was so happy I cried, haha. How great! I am SO excited for her to meet the French people.
