Je suis la vache avec deux tache

Another week has flown by! The activity of choice last P-day was sleeping, and that's about all that happened haha. 

Thursday we had some great lessons with a few of our investigators. We tried to invite the couple we are teaching, Raimanu and Mareva to be baptized by they were a little hesitant. I think they know the church is true but they just have to get married and all that. They did come to church this last Sunday though which was awesome! Its the first time they've come since I've been here so thats progress! We also taught Heirani again who is still having a hard time with some word of wisdom issues but she really does want to quit! She still wants to get baptized on Easter Sunday but we'll see! 

Friday we had a lesson with a super long time investigator who has been investigating for about 11 years named Fabianne. She is practically a member she just hasn't been baptized and she recently told us she wants to get baptized in a few weeks! We had the lesson scheduled at the chapel but the member who was suppose to take us completely forgot! We had to hop the bus and ended up being 30 minutes late to the lesson! She had to get home soon after so we had a super short lesson and she told us why she wanted to get baptized. She is suuuper ready. She did tell us she wanted to move the date back a little further into May but I think she doesn't realize how ready she actually is haha. We are going to see her tonight so we'll see what date It'll actually be. 

Saturday we had a bunch of lessons fall through but we had a few good lessons to make up for it! We met with a former investigator named Maleko. Its been quite some time since any missionaries had visited him so we decided it was time! Turns out he already had a bunch of great questions! We taught the plan of salvation and he made a ton of connections to the Bible on his own! It was cool to see. That night we had a fireside that was specially for investigators but not a single one showed! It was still good non the less. We talked about the atonement and Bishop bore an amazing testimony at the end. Though only members were there I think we all got something out of it!

Sunday we had 3 investigators at church which was super good to see!

Monday we had a family home evening with the partially member, partially less active and partially non member, Tahitian family again, the Teura's. They are just awesome. We are still working on getting them to come back to church and all but slowly but surely haha. While waiting for the super super good Tahitian food to finish cooking we played a little game that literally translates into "The cow without tasks" Its kinda hard to explain but its safe to say that I was NOT good at it haha. I became the cow with many tasks.... aka ->(Je suis la vache avec deux tache)

Tuesday we had another zone conference! With the new missionary standards we have a zone conference every transfer now which I really like. Its always good to see President Granger since we so rarely get to see them :(. For the conference I got the opportunity bear my testimony and share a thought on Preach My Gospel! It was good day. 

That's it for this week!
