Hello tout le monde!
For a quick recap of my email last week; I said that we finally got sun, but that was shortly lived. We had rain ALL week and wind ALL week. Our showers were cold ONCE AGAIN. But hey...who knows, we may get some sun today. We are expected to get hit with a cyclone after this week of getting the "depression", which is what they call it.
With the weather we were told by our mission president to be wise and stay inside. We have the mountain sector and we had a lot of flooding at member and ami homes. We brought the other soeurs with us and asked anyone we could find if we could help them clear out water from their homes or clear out debres that damaged some homes, but we were also turned away from helping members and amis too. If we try hard enough, one day the members and amis will let us do service for them! ONE DAY!!
I wasn't able to work in the sector a whole lot this week, because I was helping Sr. Lawrence in hers (I have the car and she is on bike), so we had our comps work together in Taravao 1. Sr. Lawrence has had really bad back pain for the past 2-3 weeks, and all the docteurs we have been too find her situation "bizarre et on ne sait pas qu'est-ce qu'on doit faire avec toi....mais tien...prend doliprane." Doliprane is the French version of Ibuprofen. We figured it could be one of two things, but we hope it's nothing too serious. Not gonna lie....when you're injured or sick on the mission the one thing you long for is home. But right now our home is our mission, and the love of Jesus Christ is stronger than we could ever imagine.
There really is not much to report on this week....bummer I know. Our house has been pounded with the storm that we had, but we have remained our of harms way #blessed
So, to end this tiny email of mine; here are some quotes I find rather....PRETTY AWESOME!
"We would do well to slow down a little and focus on the significant, lift up our eyes, and truly see the things that matter most." - President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
"I believe music heals the soul." - Alex Boye :)
Je vous aime beaucoup. Merci pour vos prieres chaque jour et pour votre amour!
