Labourel Letter

One of our favorite couples in Bordeaux were the Labourels. They are so fun loving and have accepted the Gospel completely. You can just see the happiness in their eyes since their baptism. They were baptized shortly before we left. Brother Labourel is a student of Brother Defranchi and that is how he became acquainted with the church. He felt there was something special in Brother Defranchi that he wanted to have in his life. They are both French, but she speaks a little English and always tried to speak English around JoAnn to make her feel more comfortable.

They sent this wonderful email in English, again being very thoughtful of JoAnn's limited French.

"thank you for your mail; i really appreciate your" thought on a saturday afternoon"; it's so nice to have news from you; we hope that serving in belgium brings you much joy and confort in the spirit! during our holidays, we had the great opportunity to go to madrid's temple with brother defranchi and the diesnis's family! it was really an unique experience, full of emotion, joy and peace; it allowed us to gain a great testimony of the plan of salvation; to serve our ancestors and other unknown people too, allows us to realize how much this work is righteous, divine and necessary !we know today that all these people will be taught by the missionnaries "from high", what comfort it brings to our soul! We're preparing ourselves for our sealing next year and our journey in Kaysville with steven Warren; we're so gratefull for the blessings and for the gospel in our life.
May our heavenly father bless and protect you, and the holy spirit stay beside you, see you soon
Nathalie and Patrick Labourel"
