Transfers and Happy 4th of July

Another solid week here in the VPVM. Last P-day the district went to Tjibaou, a kanaky cultural center. It was pretty cool! Lots of cool art and sculptures and what not. Pics below.   

On Friday we found out transfer info. Ill be staying in Dumbea and training a new elder from Tahiti!!! I'm low key scared but also kinda excited! Elder Nulak got transfered back to Vanuatu oddly enough. No one, absolutely no one saw that coming. He'll be serving in Port Vila again which is a little strange because he has lots of family there. Anyways for the week being I'm with Elder Claveau, another Tahitian here in Dumbea until all the new Elders and Sisters fly in on Friday. 

Saturday through Monday we visited tout le monde, all the members, inactives and investigators for Elder Nulak to say goodbye. He was actually super sad to leave. He made some good relationships with the people here in Dumbea. We had one big family home evening Sunday night with a couple member families and lots of investigators too. Its was super awesome. 

Tuesday Elder Claveau, who has served in Dumbea before, and I went to work! We found 2 new investigators which was a miracle and really cleaned up some old records. Its super nice to have someone here that has served here before. 

That's it for this week! Happy 4th everybody!

Avec amour,
Elder Burbank
