This week has been pretty solid. Last Wednesday we had a fun district activity and we played a bunch of board games and card games like Clue in French! I also got a haircut from one of my zone leaders! He's pretty new at cutting hair so it was an interesting experience haha. Really nice of him to take time out of his P-day though! I usually just get haircuts from other Elders now because professional haircuts are really expensive and I'm not sure how I would explain how I want my hair cut in French when I can't even do that in English haha.

Thursday we had a lesson with one of our newer investigators named Evelyn. We actually found out that she is an active Jehovah's Witness which kinda caught us off guard. She is still really open to us and says she wants to come to church which is a little bizarre. We were kind of surprised she let us in in the first place! We also had this lesson with a long time investigator who is originally from Tahiti named Raimanu. He is super chill and I think he and his girlfriend want to get baptized but they live together...and I don't think they are getting married anytime soon unfortunately. Maybe one day.

Friday we had our sports activity again with our English class too. We had a whole non member family come to the English class and they loved it! We haven't even taught this family once, we just met them and invited them while tracking but they still came! They are moving up north really soon unfortunately but I think they have huge potential! 

Saturday we contacted this member referral which went super well. The member who told us to contact her told us not to mention her name...but we did anyways. We really felt like it would make a difference and it did! She seemed super interested and they even asked for 3 copies of the Book of Mormon in Bislama! (They are from Vanuatu). 

Sunday we went to go teach the family that came to the english class but the dad wasn't there so they said another time. Instead of us teaching them though they gave us a bunch of different kinda of cake instead haha. It was super good :) We also found out that a long time investigator wants to finally get baptized! I haven't even had a lesson with her yet because she has had the lessons so many times so the missionaries kinda just let her on her own for a while. She occasionally comes to church but out of the blue she said she wants to get baptized in April !

Monday was ALOT of contacting. We didn't get a single lesson but we still had good success. We found a bunch of new potentials which is really promising! Also the weather on Monday was super weird. It was raining with mostly blue skies and sunshine. It didn't make any sense.  

That's about it for this week!
