Hey mom! i hope you are on your email!so France is awesome right now im serving in Carcasssonne right now and its beautiful!! i took lots of pictures and im going to send it to you and everything!! Soooooo guess what? it's only been a week and Elder Bowen and I already have two set baptism dates!! Julie and Margero mother and daughter!! contacting is fun cause we get to go around the city but we cant really tract at all cause there are all apartments!today we went to this like which was awesome you have no idea but it sucked cause i didn't get to swim or anything or take my shirt off but it was still fun, I've also decided that i want to live here in france and you all should come too!! its wayyyyyy better than Missouri and its alllways warm!!!!!i love it. Elder Bowin is awesome coolest companion hes a hard worker unlike Elder Cheel in the mtc!his french is amazing and my stinks i cant communicate with anyone they speak so fast its crazy!!everything is going good , oh there is like 40 members total in the whole city here, no one comes to church, oh and you know how dads the first councilor of young mens?well i think i don't remember that well, well anyways dad dress up in his best suit and does his calling to his best the president of the young men come to church in jeans a pink button up with no tie and sandals, its weird, the elders are afraid no one will come to church if they crack down on that but i think its wrong, just cause they are french doesn't mean anything they should show the utmost respect for the lord but they don't which is a little aggravating cause its disrespectful! all is well here feel free to send American snacks and raman!! i miss it already, the food here is also awesome when elder Bowen and i aren't making it lol but when we go out its amazing, and we only go out once a week cause of the budget but yeah i love you and miss you and dad im going to send a ton a pictures save all of them on a hard drive for me and stuff!!love you !!
