Day 40: Rest day in Besançon
We made it to church 15 minutes early, we had a 1 mile gradual climb to get there then a 1 mile descent, it was nice to be on time.
After church we stopped by the intermarche supermarket to buy diapers since I forgot to pack some, and to pick up lunch. Dan invited the missionaries to our camp at 6:30, and they invited us to a baptism at 1:00 just outside of town in the river. We planned on not going to the baptism but after we ate lunch we decided we’d have time to see it. We trekked down to the river around 1:15 and lucked out that it wasn’t until 2pm. The river was beautiful, and the kids had a great time playing in the shallow part, wading up to their ankles while we waited for the baptism.
We’d realized shortly after inviting the missionaries for dinner that the stores were closed at 1pm. We’d planned on getting pizza somewhere, until later on after some site seeing we found a small store that was still open.
Having the missionaries for dinner was awesome. Elder Nasman from Florida has only been here for 2 weeks, and elder Moss from Alpine leaves in 4 weeks as his 2 year mission is finishing up. We had a very uplifting evening with them. Dan did a good job asking questions, and making it an uplifting experience for all of the kids. The missionaries shared why they were there, and a lot about what it’s like to be a missionary in France. I’m very glad Dan invited them, It was a great way to spend a Sunday!
We trekked up to the top of Besançon today after church, the kids wanted to help push the stroller.
