Here is a snippet from Elder Ferguson's letter last month.
It was really fun being in Lyon for the week. I had the opportunity to be with a lot of great missionaries. I went out with Elder Sopi ,who is from Paris and Elder Tromeur who is from Italy. That did wonders for my french and I loved that, plus they are both so nice and funny. The next day i got to go out with the assistants. That was amazing. I just got to let loose with 2 people as excited about missionary work as me. We contacted over 200 people on the street and ported a whole building. I got 6 numbers and they each got 8 and 9. I was on fire. I loved it. At the end of the day i asked them what i could work on and they said nothing. Just my french, which made me happy. They told me they loved that i was a funny missionary that worked hard and that i had courage to go up and talk to people on the bus. That made me feel good... its tough to be back here in Grenoble but i still love it ..... I miss the whole family. Thank you so much for the pictures. I will send you a few also .... all the Lyon missionaries feasted for Thanksgiving. We had chicken. It's so funny because 3/4 of our zone are Europeans and there were like, "what is this magical sauce?" ..... I said, "that's gravy my friend. ha ha They loved it and were asking what we did besides eat on Thanksgiving. It was funny explaining that we nap. hahaha Did you know that 1 turkey here is 80 euros .... yikes that/s almost 100 dollars.
Well, I would love if you would pray for me. I love you so much and i will ttys.
Love oodles and oodles,
Elder Ryan Ferguson
Yup. That's my boy.
Well now that's just sad. ;(
