A New Year in Périgueux!! .... January 6, 2014

Chére Famille,

What a crazy week! I dont have much time (we're getting cut short this week.)

Some quick highlights:

We spent new years day at the famille DeOliviera's house and had a big pig meal (picture included:) 

It was a really fun time!

After finding a man named Ludo and walking to the church and teaching him last week, we met again with him this week and taught him. He told us how he really wants to be the best husband and father he can be for his future family. He struggled with praying our first rendezvous, but how glorious it was to hear him say the closing prayer this week. It brought so much joy and peace to my heart to hear him speak to His Heavenly Father and ask for forgiveness, to hear him seek to CHANGE, and plead for Divine guidance doing it. He told us after he finished that he felt so very relieved. It was by far the highlight of my week!

So to cut off so short. As I thought about you all and the New year that may seem so hard and so looming with goals that you have set. Remember to pray for help and take it one day and one decision at a time.

I leave with the words of the Prophet of God:

‘Seek heavenly guidance one day at a time. Life by the yard is hard; by the inch it’s a cinch. Each of us can be true for just one day—and then one more, and then one more after that, until we’ve lived a lifetime guided by the Spirit, a lifetime close to the Lord, a lifetime of good deeds and righteousness.

Thomas S. Monson

Happy New Year!

I love you all so very much!

Beaucoup d'amour,  Elder William Montgomery
