to normal music, but I still know that one.
Well this week was a good one.
Tuesday was district meeting. We had it in Luxembourg, we left from
Toul at 8:30am and got back at 6:30 pm... We had a lot of trains, a
bus from Toul to Nancy. Train from Nancy to Metz, then another train
from Metz to Luxembourg, but we played uno with the Metz elders from
Metz to Luxembourg. So that was good. Then we did the same thing
coming back except this time we had a train from Nancy to Toul.
For district meeting we took district pictures at a fort in
Luxembourg. For the kill shot the elders wanted me to hang off the
ledge... I know I'm dying as a missionary, but I don't really want to
die in real life...
The best part of the week was that we helped a really old couple that
are members set up skype on their computer. They skyped there daughter
who they hadn't seen in 11 years because she lives in America. It was
so touching. The hard part of that visit was soeur back. She's losing
her memory and in a normal mangez-vous with them she'll ask us like 20
times if we're from Utah. So she forgot that I had said I was leaving
so about 20x she found out again and got super sad.
Thursday night we ate with a Tahitian member and her husband. Then we
came home and stayed up till 12! Yayay then went to bed right away
because the next morning we couldn't sleep in like we could on
Christmas. So woke up on New Year's Day at 6:30 exhausted. We still
were able to have lunch with a family and dinner with another and
guess what?! I tried snails.... And guess what? I liked them! All it
tastes like is garlic and butter... So not bad at all
Saturday and Sunday I said lots of goodbyes. I'm so surprised! I
haven't cried yet!
As for the fact that I'm at the end of my mission, I don't know what
to say. I'm excited to come home and see family and friends. But my
heart is in France! I love the language, the culture, the people, the
food, the members, everyone I know... I have loved my mission, it
hasn't been the easiest thing in my life, but I'm so glad I did it. I
have learned so much, and am so grateful for everything these 18
months have given me.
Love you all so much and can't wait to see you soon in just a few days!
