Dear family and friends,
IT IS SPRINGTIME IN PARIS!!!!!!!!! The sun is out and we are smiling!!!!:) Today and all last week was the most GLORIOUS weather, and it is staying that way! I sure lucked out for this being the winter I lived in France! It was hardly cold, and I never saw snow! All that makes missionary work outside all day and all night a little bit more enjoyable.:)
This week we scheduled a date for Josette and Leah Gomilla to be baptised!!!! We are planning for the 12 of April, and they are very excited.:) The ward is all up to date and also very enthusiastic. It is going to be just great. Please keep them in your prayers these next couple of weeks.:) Thank you!!!
This week we worked a lot with Laurie Cotard, and we actually had a lovely meal with her husband and three sons. It has been a little tough for her husband to swallow the fact of her coming back to church, but we think that that dinner helped. Laurie so desires the blessings of the Gospel for her entire family, and she has so much faith that they will one day accept to be baptized and that they can be sealed as a forever family. This week we taught about fasting and prayer, and we decided to set up a special fast together for her husband. In addition, Laurie has started doing a daily scripture study at 5:30 every morning before work, and she is loving it. She has been coming to church every week and praying every day. I just cannot explain what a miracle she is!!! She is proof to me that no one is every out of the loving grasp of the Savior. Even after many many years, He is always there with open arms. I love her dearly. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.:)
Remember that you can make a difference, wherever you are. Find someone to help and always, always remember to smile.:)
I love you with all of my heart, Soeur Laura Lee Judd
