|Resort on one of the motus|
This week we finally visited the other side of the island. Well, we had visited Anau, but we had never been completely at the end of Anau. So we biked completely to the other side and it was pretty awesome. It’s the side with all the resorts, 4 seasons, Talaso, St. Regis, there’s one other one but I don’t remember the name. Not very many people as well. The road is also right next to the ocean, with a rocky cliff on the island side. It’s really beautiful and peaceful. It took FOREVER to get out there though, maybe an hour and a half?
The prayers seem to be working, Monia's husband started coming to the lessons out of nowhere. He also came to church yesterday, it was pretty awesome. It would be awesome if you could pray for a family whose name is Tropée. They are a family we've recontacted who were going to get married and baptized, and then the father stopped everything. We've started the lessons encore, and things are going well- but we want them to be successful this time.
President Bize is really awesome. It seems there will be less of a Mission president/missionary wall. He's French but he's been living in the US for a while. He's also going to make sure that foreign missionaries take this opportunity to learn English. Since he learned his English with his English companions, and it helped him a ton later on and he wants that for all non English speaking missionaries. As well, they reported the apostles are going to make some changes focused on teaching more for conversion, as well as focusing more on reactivation of inactive and new convert members. I’m interested to see what will happen.
If you have a Preach my Gospel, read in chapter one the section titled The Restoration. It’s pretty powerful and will help you share the gospel with others, as well as the most important things that need to be made known.
Ok, I love you all!
