Answered prayers

I don't have a lot of time today so my email will be short.

Hey everyone! Hows it going? Things are going steadily here in Pirae. Its been a pretty good week for us although these past couple of days my comp and I have been pretty sick. Tahitians blame it on the weather because the weather here has been weird lately. Its really really hot during the day and chill at night so it causes lots of coughing. Anyways, this week was spent basically preparing people for their baptisms next week. 

We were able to find and re-contact Taaroa. He and Bertie had a meeting with Bishop and they're planning on getting married and baptised in like 2  weeks. Our prayers have been answered.

The Moux family are still planning on getting married next week so that should be super fun. We had an interesting lesson with them about prophets.

We got another new investigator this week named Eugene. His story is crazy. He was born in Brazil and raised in England and France. He moved to Tahiti to experience something new. He's a traveler. He was invited to stay with a member family and that's when he became interested in the church. He reads the Book of Mormon everyday and he already has a testimony. He was the one that asked us if he could be baptized. It's a crazy cool miracle about how he found the church. We are planning his baptism for next week too.

I really enjoyed seeing this week how the Lord prepares people to recieve the gospel. Something Elder Lynn G. Robbins told us was that behind every conversion story there was a miracle that took place. I agree with that 100%!

I love you all! Have a good week!!

Getting our food ready to grill...meat, ketchup, soy sauce, preach my gospel manual. Looks like I got everything I need.
Now to cook them....
Get some wood and cinder blocks. Lay them up against the mountain in the backyard.
Use your Boy Scout training to build a fire.
Lay a piece of chain link fence in between the cinder blocks. Place meat, seasoned by yours truly, on fence.

Cook til done. Then eat!!! That's how we roll in Tahiti!
