elder egbert versus the kiabi war

There are two things in this world that don't work well together.
1- lots of movement
2- cheap suits
One of the best things about France is that you can go to the store
and get a suit for 50 euros. And since we have to wear a suit every
single day, my logic was just to buy one and then wear it out for the
rest of my mission. That was in June.

However this week, I saw kiabi stretch to its limits. Literally. We
were just sitting on the couch in the apartment, I tried to bring my
legs up into a cross legged position and then, POP. Thank goodness
pretty much every missionary has a sewing kit.

We had an exchange with Chartres this week. I was able to go with
Nicoll, which was fun because four transfers ago we went on
practically the same exchange.

We saw a woman this week named Hary. Shes from Madagascar, and she
gave us a RDV for 12 minutes. Seriously though. From 5:00-5:12. You
better know it was the fastest lesson i've ever taught in my life. It
was like real life practice teaching.

We also were able to go to Blois for their finding day. I'm telling
you, Blois is a beauuuutiful city. And shout out to the studs that are
there, because it's a really hard city. And they're seeing so much
success. Kinda like what I said last week. Straight up, hard work
fixes a lot of problems.

I don't have much else to say. So, Here's a quote.
"God is great. He does all the work and we just walk around and make words."
- Elder Bishop

Mosiah 2
"24 And secondly, he doth require that ye should do as he hath
commanded you; for which if ye do, he doth immediately bless you; and
therefore he hath paid you. And ye are still indebted unto him, and
are, and will be, forever and ever; therefore, of what have ye to
boast?
25 And now I ask, can ye say aught of yourselves? I answer you, Nay.
Ye cannot say that ye are even as much as the dust of the earth; yet
ye were created of the dust of the earth; but behold, it belongeth to
him who created you."

Signing out until next time,
Your friendly neighborhood

- Elder Egbert
