Happy new year!

Hey Everyone!! I wish you all a very merry new year! This week was pretty fun for us. The work was a little slow due to all the partying but we've seen some good progress in our other investigators. We also had some cool experiences. 

We have an investigator named Betty. Her boyfriend is a member named Tane and they are going to get married this Saturday and she is going to get baptized afterwards. We're really excited! She's been taught for a couple of years but she's finally getting baptized! She's super ready!

So on Tuesday, we found two new investigators who are Pentecosts. They were really cool. They were really open to the Book Of Mormon and they said they were going to read it. At the end of the lesson, the guy did the prayer and it was awesome. We all held hands and the prayer involved lots of hallelujahs and amens. Sweet!!

I really like the new mormon message, "Look Foward to Your Future". It talks about the story of Lot's wife and how we shouldn't look back on the past. Its really inspiring. My new goal for this year is to focus on the future and forget the past.  

Thats about all for this week! I love you all!!! Have a good week!

Me eating Fafaru (remember? Fafaru is that dish they make where they take raw fish and soak it fermented sea water for days or weeks. It smells like a sewer, but I'm really starting to like it!)
This is a pic of the "plateau of Taravao". It's a little piece of land that connects Tahiti-iti (little Tahiti) to Tahiti-nui (big Tahiti).
