Happy Mother's Day

This week was....interesting. Last Pday our original plan for our district activity fell through so its turned into souvenir shopping in downtown Nouméa, which turned into fabric shopping because all the sisters in the district wanted to make their own dresses haha. C'est la vie. We also met with a long time investigator for that first time. He's a 15 year old kid named Timiona who wants to get baptized but his dad wont let him. Its a tough situation but we are still trying to help him out.

Last Thursday I made this board game about the plan of salvation for a big dinner appointment with multiple families and investigators. I think it went pretty well. Everyone got a good laugh out of it.

Friday it took a while to get out of the house but once we did good things happened! Found 3 new potential investigators and had another lesson with Nels who had tons and tons and tons of questions about the Book of Mormon. We did our best to explain everything. He even prayed at the end of the lesson which was great!

Saturday we had a "lesson" with this super nice guy named Jean Hugues. Turns out he is a super active member of the Pentecost Church but he loves the missionaries. He basically just talked the whole time about why Christianity is needed on the earth today. Super interesting guy. I shared a few verses from the Book of Mormon that he really liked I think. Next time he said we'll get to do some more talking. I hope. We also had another lesson with Fanny. I gave her a baptismal invitation this time around because she told that she knew that the Book of Mormon was true but she said she wants to know more first. I think we are going to try to set a date for her soon because she is READY!

Sunday we gave our Aaronic Priesthood Celebration performance in sacrament meeting. All the priesthood holders sang Ye Elders of Israel which was cool.

Monday we went downtown to go get Elder Nulaks Carte de Sejour which is basically a visa. After we went straight to the office for mother day calls which I am super grateful for! Its hard to miss Katie's wedding but it was good to hear that all is going well at home! After we also did an exchange with the zone leaders. I went with Elder Watkins and basically all we did was have meetings with stake leaders haha. Got to meet with a High councilor and the stake president who is a super cool guy who was raised in France and served in England. Almost all his family speaks English and they prefer to speak English when they have the chance so that was cool.

That's about it for this week! Transfers are on Monday so we'll see what happens.

Avec amour,
Elder Burbank
