Rain



11 May 2015 Tiarei

It rained a lot this week. Big tropical rain storms, but its starting to be the season of wind and rain. The nights are getting cooler, sometimes you want a sweatshirt when there's a breeze.

We participated in the challenge that our mission President gave us to find 15 new investigators in the last 3 weeks. Most were found in the last few days (we procrastinated a bit xP). Even with the procrastination, with mighty prayer and very wet socks and umbrellas we managed to find them all. Miracle.

Transfer calls will be coming this week or the next, but I think I'm going to finish here. However, it would be nice to do one last excursion >.>

The Skype call was nice. We'll see each other pretty soon though! Now all my skype calls and general conferences on my mission are finished!

We were going to play beach soccer today but it didn't work out - they were putting new sand on the field...and of course it was on P-day :x

We got to go to the temple 2 times in the last two weeks, once with the Elders and HItiaa, and another time with the Elders of Faaripo and Papenoo (perks of being the one with the car). It was really nice and a great recharge for the weeks to come. Going to the temple really gives us blessings of mental stamina. Its a good wind down session where we focus just on the plan of salvation. Exactly what I needed this week!

This week we were teaching an ami named Hinerava. We just started the plan of Salvation lesson, which I love because its really during this lesson that our amis (friends) develop a testimony of the Book of Mormon and Jesus Christ. At the end of the lesson, which was a discussion based around 2 nephi 2, we asked if she had any questions or comments. At which she looked at us and said something to the effect of , "well that was really clear". Then she proceeded to tell us how clear the Book of Mormon is and the doctrine. Moments like that can make a week.

Love you all! Faaitoito
