The start of something new, 06/27/16

Hello everyone! How are you? So good I hope :) Let me tell yah, life
in Clermont is prime! Loving it to death here and it's only been one
week! We have had so many different adventures, get ready!

This week started off like a normal week, I got here and unpacked and
all was well. We did our groceries, wrote some emails, the normal
stuff :)
On Wednesday we found out some cool information. In our sector of
Clermont there is a soeurs equipe (companionship) and an elders
equipe. The elders equipe here was whitewashed (both missionaries in
the companionship got replaced) and we were getting a new missionary!
So Wednesday we were able to have a fun phone call with the new blue
and just got super stoked to meet them. They were able to come in
Thursday morning and we spent some time talking about our ville and
showing them around, all that. It was a blast and our blue is THE
COOLEST! His name is Elder Devin Sellers and he is from Portland,
Oregon. He's got a true love for the Lord and a sincere desire to be
here. His trainer is named Elder William Hoopes and he is from
American Fork (or as he says it "Mercan Fark") and will be going home
at the same time as me. As for my companion, I didn't get to say much
about her last week. She is super super cool and we are basically the
same person and already the best of friends. We know what each other
is thinking and are going to be the new dynamic duo.

This week has been a fun one for us here. We have taught a few people,
played some basketball with members, less actives, and Amis (I more of
chased the ball around and probably got the world record for most air
balls... Let's just say I could use some more practice haha not like
there's anyone that can help us.. Haha). We had some members invite us
over for dinner and got to experience a Tahitian BBQ! Oh man, SO GOOD!
I quite enjoy their salads, and I even tried cow heart! Mmmmm, so good
:) We were able to do a lot of work this week and just have had fun.
There really is never a dull moment here in Clermont-Ferrand. For
example, funny story of the week! We were at a dinner appointment (all
4 missionaries) with our recent convert Marie-José. During this
appointment, Marie-José began to tell us about her brother and all his
health problems. As she finished her sad story, Elder Hoopes
(pronounced as "oops" in French) said "oh, that's great" in a really
happy sounding voice. Soeur Alberts and I just start cracking up and
poor Elder Sellers, who didn't understand anything, was just super
confused while his companion was embarrassed for saying that haha. The
soeurs all had a great laugh...

Well, I just want you to know that I love you all so much and am
grateful for your love and support. Have a great week and God Bless :)

Weekly Scripture:
1 Nephi 4:1
This scripture is a favorite of mine. I love the question Nephi poses,
"For behold he is mightier than all the earth, then why not mightier
than Laban and his fifty, yea, or even than his tens of thousands?" It
is so true, the Lord is so mighty, and he is on our team! Isn't that
so cool?

Big bisous from France,
