Another great week! Last P-day I showed Elder Tetuaiterai the provincial park and we hiked up the gorge a little bit. We also had a big meal with tons of people with members and investigators in our ward.
Thursday we started out early in the morning with some contacting. It actually went pretty well. Most people were pretty nice and accepting! We also had our weekly lesson with Nels. He'll be getting a car soon so he can come to church! We also had a random lady walk up to us and ask us if we do lessons a peoples houses. We ended up having a lesson with her a few hours later. Turns out she's an inactive from Tahiti! She hasn't come to church in some 10 odd years and she wants to slowly come back!
Friday we stopped by a ward activity with Beniot for and hour or two. We ate some fresh fish that they had caught the day before! It was suuuper good. We also met this crazy shirtless white guy with super long white hair while contacting. He was super nice and accepting but a little strange haha. Who knows maybe he'll be a solid investigator!
Saturday we went up north to do a baptismal interview in our district. We have two baptisms coming up for the Dumbea ward the 29th. Not from our area but exciting anyways! We also had another lesson with Ludo! We've met with him for just a week total and he told us he wants to get baptized! There is one thing holding him back though. All his family is catholic and he is already getting some backlash for meeting with us. He told us he is going to really think about it because he knows his family is going to reject him.
Sunday we had an unexpected investigator come to church! Its was the brother of one of the members in our area. As far as I knew he has no interest in the church but he came anyways with his daughter who is the only member in their family! After church we also stopped by our new investigator Alex. He loves talking about all sorts of conspiracy theories and what not its pretty funny but he asks tons and tons of good questions.
Monday we went shopping downtown Noumea with Elder Glade one of the Senior missionaries. Elder Tetuaiterai needed some more shoes and pants. We also headed out to the hospital to give someone, a non member, named Waia Waia a blessing. All went well.
Tuesday we saw another new investigator Thomas! He told us that he wants to be a member of our church! He also told us that every time he reads the Book of Mormon he feels like a load is lifted off of him. We've only known him for like 2 weeks! The only thing is that all his family, including his wife is catholic! He told us he has to take it slow and share what he's learning with his family. In the same boat as Ludo!
That's all for this week!
