Here are the answers to your questions.
Question #1: Do you still have a car in your new area?
Nope, we don't have a car here in Clacton.
Question #2: How many active members are in the branch?
Somewhere around 50, probably a bit under that.
Question #3: Where in France is your new companion from and what else have you learned about him?
He is from 15 minutes west
of Paris. He's my funniest companion so far,
we eat pasta every day, and he
was baptized 2 years ago. He has a
brother and his parents, who are not
members. He has cousins that are
members, and he was brought into the church

This last week has been great,
once again my feet are in constant
pain, which is great. I feel like a

Last week we came to the flat
with no food, so we bought some pasta,
cereal and milk. Haha, we have had
pasta (basically plain) for all our
meals so far. It will be nice to do some
proper shopping this week.
Elder Delannoy is really funny. He is quite
afraid of dogs, he makes
me look so brave. The other day we were knocking on
doors and a dog
ran up to the door. We went, "uh oh". We hadn't seen the dogs
until it lifted up to the window, wow, massive German Shepard.
Delannoy just ran off, so I waited a second and left too,
there was no one home to see our cowardice. It's great, we both have
real focus on our purpose, and both like to laugh.
Hope things are
going great in Provo. Take care.
