Elder Russo's New Post......Remember his birthday Sep 08 !!

Hello everyone,
Things in France are good still, I just received the transfer calls and I'mm staying in Carcassonne for another 6 weeks with my new companion Elder Smith, I haven't met him yet but I hear that he is an awesome missionary! I kinda wished that I could transfer out to another place, I've been here too long!but oh well, nothing too new here just doing the same old missionary work, french is still difficult but hopefully it comes soon to me, my birthday is coming up its weird to think that im going to be 20!I want to express how important it is to do member work, and how much the missionaries need help!help!help!help!help!help!help!help!help!help!help!help!help them!Oh and i get to go to Toulouse this Thursday too! i hurt my knee and im getting checked up, so hopefully that will be fun!!Well I hope you all have a good week and nothing too big happens while I'm gone!

New Letter....little more about his mission this time!!! :-)

Hello everyone!!
Things in France are going pretty good! i had my first opportunity to be apart of the baptism for Claudine Velot. Serge baptized her and i was a witness and i helped confirm her a member of the church and blessed her with the holy ghost!! so its been an exciting weekend for me!Pretty soon I'm going to be moving to a new apartment down the street from my old one, my old one was very small and old, now we are going to be moving into one that is brand new and huge!! so I'm looking forward to that, i traveled a lot i went to Montpellier Beziers and Perpignan! all beautiful places! Oh so transfers are in one week i talked to president and i will probably be staying here for another transfer it looks like! So the work in Carcassone goes on, the only thing is nothing exciting happens in Carcassonne just a lot of tourist and hobos honestly but once i get a crazy story i will let everyone know!! well i hope you are all doing wel feel free to write me whenever you want!

Something New, not much...Baptism coming this weekend!!!

I love you and miss you all very much, there's a lot of stress that comes with a mission and I'm sorry if i sound aggravated sometimes but you have no idea how hard it is here sometimes i still can't even speak french fluently yet,and I am having a hard time the last couple weeks trying to be happy and productive,but this week is going great we have a baptism this Saturday for a girl named Claudine, I'm looking forward to that, I am very excited, but it's a little hectic because the members in France are so different than the ones at home, they don't support us missionaries the same way.
Today they left us at the church because they didn't have room for us for the activity at the lake,we were both planning on that for our day off, sometimes I just feel like they don't care about us missionaries sometimes. Idk I feel a little depressed right now and no one to talk to without taking it the wrong way, I hope you don't. I miss you all so very much I pray for you everyday in my prayers and I fast for you guys to stay safe and well.I don't know what else to write about sorry im not a good writer.Please send my cord and a full size American flag for me.That would be great. I love you and I will look forward for your letter.

update 08/01/2011

Sorry everyone...It has been hard to communicate with our Son RJ...many people are emailing him on his Elder email address and he has only 15 minutes to read and write emails to his family. So for that reason, he has been writing maybe a line or two to his family, so I don't have anything to share.It would be helpful if you are emailing him to write him paper letters.His address is in his blog.
He is doing well.Working hard on his mission.
Thank you
Stella Russo
