another uninspired pday email--Week 94
So this week was actually pretty hard. Learned a lot, progressed a lot, relied on the Lord, but frankly, have zero interesting stories.
I just realized that I don't even have any pictures. This is just dreadful.
No but truly, nothing interesting this week. Tuesday we did a bunch of lessons, most of which were with our new converts (we've got quite a few right now), Wednesday was cool because more people showed up to our sport activity than usual, Thursday was a service project at Marcellino's for the whole day (a bunch of college students were coming down to stay at their bungalos so we helped with the painting), Friday we had a couple of lessons (a pretty nice one with Junior and Tekau, actually) and did weekly planning, and then Saturday was just crappy. Truly, a wretched day. I literally almost fell asleep in one of the lessons we did. Super uninspiring. And this other couple we've been seeing for a while has just drifted further away from us and the church than ever. Carrément top. Sunday was bad and good at the same time. We had a really nice fast and testimony meeting, and then we went and did some average lessons, but then after that we went and did a bunch of contacting. It actually felt pretty good to do, and I definitely learned something, but mostly we just met a bunch of people who tried to Bible Bash or just didn't care.
Today is the last pday before the transfer though. Expect photos from the motu next week, and surely a transfer on my part. Also, we're eating s'mores tonight!
Spiritual thought for you all is this:
an innactive member in Papeete shared this scripture with my companion and I back in the day. He said that this scripture talked about us, and when he read it that morning, he knew we would be coming by that day; even without a previously fixed appointment. This scripture came up recently again. I encourage you all to read it, and to really think about how the Lord answers your prayers in simple ways, and to grow to recognize them and to be thankful for them.
And the great God has had mercy on us, and made these things known unto us that we might not perish; yea, and he has made these things known unto us beforehand, because he loveth our souls as well as he loveth our children; therefore, in his mercy he doth visit us by his angels, that the plan of salvation might be made known unto us as well as unto future generations.
