Amies and American Football
This week has seemed to really fly by. Each week seems to be getting faster and faster. This week also finally all the ovb(ouvrir votre bouche, open your mouth which means in essence is contacting) has really started to pay off. WE have some really great new amies. WE have one named messon who is really great. At first he was a little hesitate. He flat out told us, he didn't really believe what we said but he would read and look into it. Then the next time it was kind of like night and day. We talked about Joseph Smith and the book of Mormon and he said,"C'est Bon." We were really happy he is progressing well. I know its not because of me because I know my french is still not perfect. Also we started teaching Afi and Late. Afi works as a maid and Late as a chauffer for the same lady. So we teach them as they have breaks. When we told them about Joseph Smith, Late said he feels like Joseph Smith with all the churches around. There are a lot of churches here, more than america. Also it was a miracle that happened on Sunday. We had an appointment with an amie named Antoine Congo on Saturday. All was going to plan when it started to rain. When it rains here it rains a ton. It makes it really hard for people to get home because the roads are made of dirt. So when we got to his house he wasn't there. So we were kind of sad, but understood because most of our appointments had fallen through because of the rain. Then on Sunday, he shows up at church. We hadn't even started teaching him yet. So that was really awesome. He seems way interested and really liked church. So good signs there. Right now is the raining season, so it rains here probably once every two days. Its nice because its a lot cooler when it rains. Also we have another ami who we just starrted teaching, she is very catholic but is starting to open up to the idea of our chearch. Yeah so we have started having more and more amies hopefully some of the others will progress well too.
