(M) We are now getting settled in nicely. Our apartment is just a block from the mission office and only about 10 minutes from the Institute building where we will do alot of our work when we are not travelling. This week Friday we have a meeting with a self-reliance group in Annemasse, France, right on the border of Geneva, Switzerland. Then on Saturday we have another rendez-vous scheduled with all the bishops in our (Lyon) Stake. I guess the best way to learn is to just dive in...and hope you don't hit a rock!
We went to our new home ward, the Écully Ward, here in Lyon. The ward members couldn't have been any more welcoming. And even though the language difference will be a challenge for a while, I'm confident it will come. I understood most of what was said in Sacrament Meeting and even participated a little in Priesthood Meeting. Quelle bénédiction!
Sœur Geddes is a real trooper! She just pushes on doing what needs to be done and never complains. I could learn a few things from her besides the language. I knew I was going to get a great missionary companion!
