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.
