Shipshape and Bristol fashion

If you watched General Conference, you might notice that I did too! If you're not sure what General Conference is, shoot my parents an email or go to and you'll figure it out :) It was super awesome, the only session we didn't watch was Sunday Afternoon so we'll have to catch that one later. We went to the Geneva chapel for it, on Saturday we watched the Women's Session (because why not) and then live feed of Saturday Morning, and Sunday we saw Priesthood, Saturday Afternoon, and live Sunday Morning. It was weird to hear them talking about the nouveaux apôtres in Priesthood Session before actually sustaining them later that day, but ça va. We were mildly freaking out about who the new ones would be, and finally most of us cheated and looked it up on our iPads. I approve! I would've approved of anybody the Lord chose to call, but I was really impressed by all three men's testimonies even though it's a little tough to tell myself that they're members of the Quorum of the Twelve now. Plus also Elder Stevenson is super young, he actually has a son on a mission... O.o in Taïwan no less! :D I encourage you all to go watch Conference, it really was super edifying and wonderful advice for your life and mine.

The rest of this week was good too! We were doing legality for Elder Pien early in the week so we were in Gex, then we had district meeting in Gex, then exchanges with our district leader Elder Walters in Gex, then Conference in Geneva but it's easier to get there from Gex than from St-Genis so we slept over. Basically we've been sleeping in the Gex apartment for about 5 nights in a row. It's crazy. I'm really hoping we can get a good productive week in starting tomorrow since this is the last week of the transfer (yep, calls are this Friday) and you never know what's going to happen!

While I was on exchanges with Elder Walters we talked to a less active guy who had been a professional footballer (soccer player) when he was younger. We originally just went to deliver a Bible he'd requested and when we rang the doorbell he said he didn't have much time, but we told him our purpose in coming and we ended up chatting with him for about 20 minutes and then praying with him at the end! He was super cool and nice, all you have to do is talk to people! Go talk to people, everyone! People are good! Lots of people need love and support, so why not be the one to give it to them?

We're emailing from the Institute again since we had an unofficial zone preparation day in Geneva. Elder Ambursley and Sœur Kehl from our zone are finishing their missions this transfer, which is sad but that time comes for everyone. They're both super cool and great missionaries, we just wanted to get everyone together with them one last time. We didn't do much but get kebab together, but kebab is delicious so no worries :)
