The Lord is blessing us!

FYI: Aaron's new address is now posted on the contact information page! 

Conference was good! I got to watch Priesthood session and the last session in English. I liked Eyring's talk too. I was reminded of you as he talked about his mother. Watched most of it in French because we had investigators and members there who spoke French. 

(Last Friday Emily went teaching with Elders Fraley and Wade) Working with Emily was great! I think she really enjoyed it! Finally got to work her this past Friday. I think she had a great experience. I could tell bearing her testimony like that, was something very new for her. But towards the end of the day, she was able to bear it and testify of things with much more confidence. Emily has a video that she will send to you. 

The work is steadily increasing. The Lord is blessing us for our efforts: faith, diligence, and obedience.We were able to work with plenty of members this past week as well. We're seeing an exponential increase with our numbers as well. The members here are very kind. Church is a little different. I'm used to church being very family like. Everybody here gives each other "bisou's" (Kisses on the cheek).  Americans kind of do their own thing. They've been doing it for so long that they just keep to themselves. They're just too busy. But sometimes, you just have to make time. I know, easier said than done. But as your faith and testimony increase and strengthen, and as you gain and experience a more intimate relationship with the Lord and His atonement, it becomes less of a chore and more of a priority and way of life. Elder Bednar described it perfectly.

What's new? Elder Wade's quote of the week: The church is true, the book is blue, and Jesus was a Mormon

Love you all! Love you the most, Mom and Dad!

Que Dieu vous benisse (May God bless you
