To feed and be fed

Our letter from Elder Ferguson this week mentioned one of my favorite things.  Feasts! 

"Yesterday we met a new amie (friend).  His name is Max and he is awesome.  He seemed "hungry", so we gave him the first Lecon (discussion) "sandwich".  We also ate a member's house.  She is so gentil (nice).  First we had a huge salad and then the soup course. After that came the main course.....she made hot dogs for me, which I loved.  The dessert came next.  I was so full.  Then they bring on the cheese.  I nearly died.  Haha.  That was really fun though. 

So it seems to me that along with "feeding" those who are hungry for the gospel, my boys getting fed.  5 courses at a time in fact.  :)
He also shared the following.....

" We have taught a grip of peeps.  14 lecons  (disscussions) to non members and fixed a baptism date for one of our amies.  (friends) His name is Zhang Cheung Zhing.  I don't know how to spell it in English.  :)
I study my scriptures everyday. I have so much gold from that but I am treasuring it up for now so you will have to wait for that.  :)  The countryside is so pretty.  Fields of sunflowers and mountains and catherdrals.  Ces dope.  ( I love how he infuses french with his own "language") I just learned that Grenoble is one of the hardest villes for missionary work and that Elder Han and I are killing it.....I thought it was easy.....we work miracles here.  haha  
I have to run for now.  I will try to write more later.  We are going fishing in the alps with one of the members. That should be fun. I love you so much and thank you oodles for writing me.  I miss you but the time is flying by.  I can't even believe I have been here for 3 weeks."

Since Ryan has been in France his emails have become shorter but I am grateful for every word I receive and am so glad that he seems to be losing himself in the work.
He's a cool kid.  I'm a lucky mom.

  1. Thank you, for sharing with us, Wendy! As short as his letters may be I love how they are infused with his personality and love for the work!
