When ye are in the service of your fellow beings

Hey guys!
This week's story is about how much Elder Harris is a stud. But first, some background. While waiting for an ami to show up to a rendez-vous (which he never did), we decided to go talk to a guy in the street. Turns out he was a less-active member who we didn't recognize because he's never at church. So we set an appointment to see him and his family. We were on our way to that rendez-vous when Elder Harris noticed a woman who was carrying a bunch of stuff up to her apartment and he offered to help her. Multiple trips up the 4-story stairwell later, we met her and her husband and managed to set an appointment to share our message with them as well. We went back yesterday, taught them both (plus their friend!) and got them to agree to read and pray about the Book of Mormon. Three new amis thanks to Elder Harris noticing and filling a need.
Also, the reason this email is so late in the day is because we helped someone move today. He moved to an apartment on the 7th floor of his building. And he has no elevator, because this is France. So yeah, instead of emailing I was helping carry a fridge/washing machine/set of weights etc. up a tiny French stairwell. But it got better, because it's like French Black Friday here and we got to go buy stuff in a big underground mall in the center of Paris. Life's not so bad.
Love you all!

Elder Stanford
