Funniest Companion, Plain Pasta, and Cowardice

Dear Family,

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 by one of them who served
in Africa.

This last week has been great, once again my feet are in constant
pain, which is great. I feel like a missionary again. We are both
really excited to be working here in Clacton, it's a great place,
people in town are pretty willing to talk with us. We are putting a
lot of focus on finding families and people that are seeking the

It is so great to see the way the church is in different places around
the world. I couldn't have imagined going to a Branch with 50 people
in it before my mission. I really love being able to make a difference
in building the church here.

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 head
until it lifted up to the window, wow, massive German Shepard. Elder
Delannoy just ran off, so I waited a second and left too, luckily
there was no one home to see our cowardice. It's great, we both have a
real focus on our purpose, and both like to laugh.

Hope things are going great in Provo. Take care.

Elder Larsen
