My Dad was called to be the branch President before the rest of us even got there. A few weeks after we moved in my mom became the Young Women’s President and ward chorister and each of us kids were the President’s of our classes. There are amazing experiences that I cherish from that time.

I had been curious about your new ward/branch. I’ve never been to one that small, do you love it? Also wondering how far a drive it is. Please share your callings if you get a chance!

I live in New Zealand, so I’m used to rolling hills, sheep, and beautiful landscapes, but not castles! :)

I have a cousin in the Paris mission and my uncle and aunt are serving in Tolouse(?–if that’s how you spell it). I had no idea the congregations were so small! Do they even have a primary?

Small wards are my favorite. How far was the church from your house?

Looking at this adventure is wonderful and you are only at the beginning! Glad you found the church. Like all other wards you have been in, they will not want to ever let you go!

Love your family!

We love France, and in fact, our last visit there was a weekend in Rouen. I hope you got to see “Monet’s” cathedral. If you aren’t too far away, you need to plan to go back this summer for their ‘Les Nuits Impressionnistes’ festival at the Musée des Beaux Arts. It’s something we plan to go back for one day.

We lived in Italy for a few years when I was a kid and I remember many a drive where we would randomly happen upon a church or castle and my mom would make us get out and tour around. We, being punk kids, would whine about “another old church” but now, of course, I’m thankful for all I got to experience while living there. :)
