Bon Courage 14 Jaime ma bleu! February 17th, 2014

Hey family, fun fact, in french missions instead of saying greenie we call new missionaries bleu, sounds so much nicer don't you think? Anyway, after a crazy mixed up flight schedule this week Soeur Tenny finally arrived on Friday and we got right to work! She is awesome and already fluent in French and so willing to get out there and work and loves it already. She has great enthusiasm and courage which will serve us well! Although we are both new, we are expecting some miracles this transfer. I don't believe that the Lord would let us mess up His work if we are trying our best. He wants his children to come back and live with him so we are going to do everything we can to make that happen and let the Lord take us and our amis the rest of the way. 

This week Max our hindu priest investigator came to church and the talks were on eternal families and baptism, so inspired. He wants to badly for his girlfriend and her kids to get baptized with him so they can all be in the church together. It is going to take time, but I have faith that this family will be eternal.

On Friday night we met with this new ami named Isabelle that we found on Tuesday. She is SO PREPARED. She met with the missionaries 20 years ago and she basically said thank you for coming back to find me after all these years. She has the greatest family and her oldest son joined us for the lesson on Friday. She is so loving and ready for the gospel. We also stopped by this Haitian we have been teaching but i felt like he wasn't actually that into it after that. Of course, he was awesome and super interested and prayed to know if Joseph Smith was a prophet and knows the gospel is restored. It just goes to show that we need to love and share this gospel with everyone because we don't know who the next person is that will get baptized. 

Im so grateful for all your emails this week, I've been pretty overwhelmed but I know you are praying for me and the Lord is with us.

Love you! 
soeur eyre
