The P-Day that Shouldn't Be (February 29) --Week 28
Ka oha nui from the Marquesas - the Land where big things are in the making.
This week we called a new first counselor. It is no longer Elder Abbate, it is someone in the branch, and I'm rather stoked to see what he'll do. I think it'll be good for the branch, and I hope it'll really get things going.
We were visited by the district president, President O'Connor, and he gave a really awesome formation to all the leaders out here, but that absolutely pales in comparison to the news of Elder Pearson (the Area 70 for the PACIFIC) coming in March, WITH President Bize (and this time his wife). I'm kind of freaking out a little.
Apart from that, this week was cool because we finally fixed a baptism! It's a soft fix, but it's a fix. Louis's wife, Michelline, (who was a little lukewarm before), after the blessing we gave her, is feeling uber stoked and has committed to the date we set! Louis is definitely still committed, but he hasn't decided on a date yet. Alas, the work still continues, but that's at least a little bit of progress.
In terms of bad news we had a Bible bash this week that ended in a pretty ugly fashion. Where the one with their "pastor" and his wife was awesome and we went out guns-a-blazin, this one was rather depressing. And it was LOOONG. I started questioning like, my life and existence. Luckily we had a cool festival to go and see right after (the pictures are pretty crappy but still). Those guys were like going all in. Singing in Marquesian is no joke.
Also had a really great lesson with Wendy the Reference this week, and have some new investigators lined up. Here's hoping.
Hoping everyone is still doing well,
"Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground:
FOR IT IS TIME TO SEEK THE LORD,
till he come and rain righteousness upon you." (emphasis added)
