Get Ready to Pray!

Bonjour tout le monde!
So, this week has been awesome.  We didn't get the baptismal date that we were looking for, but we've felt your love and seen miracles nonetheless.  This week we had a lesson with a woman named Blandine, from Camaroon.  She was contacted by the Elders of Torcy, and we fixed a RDV with her.  She's wonderful!  I really feel like she's going to progress really well.  We have another RDV with her tomorrow.  We also met a girl named Emily on the street.  When we talked about Jesus, she said, "I'm believing, but I haven't been baptized yet, but it's something I've been meaning to do."  We were like, "Hey, we can help you with that!"  We have seen a lot of other miracles too.  Last week, we taught a woman named Kashmira, who is a friend of a member. She has two sons, who sometimes go to church with the member.  We had a lesson last night with her, and we found out that Kashmira has been reading a little bit, but that her son, Dany, who's nine, has been reading everyday!  And he's prayed!  I was so happy!  This upcoming week, something really cool is going to happen.  On Wednesday, our mission is going to combine with the Lyon mission for one giant day of finding!  We're not going to teach any lessons, we're just going to contact people, and every thirty minutes, we're going to have a prayer.  So on Wednesday, Soeur Thibault and I are going to spend the entire day talking to women and knocking on doors, with the promise that we will find the people who are ready for the gospel, and every half hour, we're going to stop and have a prayer for both of the missions here in France.  Now, here is where you come in.  This is REALLY important to us, and there are no limits for the power of prayer, especially spatial limits, which means that YOUR prayers can really help us, even though I'm on the other side of the world.  I know that this is an inspired decision by our leaders.  So, our invitation for you is to pray for us on Wednesday.  As much as I would love to have you pray every half hour, I'm not going to expect you to do that.  But please, pray for us, I know it will help.  Thank you so much for your love and support, you are the best!
     Avec amour,
Soeur Bracken
