A Decent Week- Week 37
Ka oha nui from the Marquesas! The land where transfers are coming.
On May 6, Abbate will be going back to Tahiti and then going home, and then the same day, my new companion, Elder Davis will be arriving here. Elder Davis is actually from Utah (American Fork), and has only been on a mission since December. I'm very excited to have a new companion, and to show him the island. I love it out here, and I can't wait to show him all the cool spots and shortcuts.
Apart from that, this week we had the Gendrons in their first sacrament meeting as members where they bore their testimonies and everything! It was so great to see them there and to feel the spirit they brough with them (new converts are always strong, but it's times 10 when they're YOUR converts). Louis received the Aaronic Priesthood, and Kaha was the one that gave it to him! It was very cool. They even brought an investigator with them to sacrament meeting. It was a really great Sunday.
We also had a lot of fun at this huge school fundraiser thing that the Catholic school did (I still haven't found a good translation for what they called it, but it was basically a school fundraiser). Coco's granddaughter, and my dear friend, Nanuhei was in the show that they did, and that was our chief reason for going. It was truly a delightful show. The theme of all the shows that the different grades of kids have done have been the countries of the world, and theirs was the United States (Nanuhei's favorite). It was really a lot of fun. Kaha was the MC!
So that was my week this week. See you all next week with a new companion!
"Draw nigh to God and He will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded."
