J’espère vous avez passé une bonne semaine avec vos familles et amis!
This week we have been blessed with finding more amis, and also fixing a bapteme et mariage!
For a lot of our lecons we used one of the talks from Prophet Thomas S. Monson when he spoke in this last Conference Generale this past Avril! The talk was "Les Choix"...."Choices." We have a lot of amis who have strong testimonies and know the church is true, but are too scared to get baptized, because they are afraid that they will chuter (fall) again into the worldly things they empeched them from getting baptized in the first place. But what is humbling about our amis is that they already worry about their "after baptized life". In Monson's talk he said:
"Although it is imperative that we choose wisely, there are times when we will make foolish choices. The gift of repentance, provided by our Savior, enables us to correct our course settings, that we might return to the path which will lead us to that celestial glory we seek."
Our goal in life is to return to our Heavenly Father again, and by so doing depends on the choices we make in life. My amis de l'eglise have already expressed their worry about rechuting after baptism. What we told them is that "si tu as peur de rechuter apres ton bapteme, c'est sur tu ne vas pas le faire apres tu es baptise." (if you are already scared or falling after baptism, it's sure that you won't do after you are baptized.) And for the most part it's true, because my amis know the choices that they make in life can affect their life for eternity, and our eternal goal is to "obtain celestial glory" and live with our Heavenly Father again!
I really enjoyed this week, even though it was BLAZING HOT half way through the week. The Spirit was so strong during lecons, and I know my companion and I were blessed with the gift of tongues, not just in French et Tahitian, but in what to say to them.
Comme d'ab I love this gospel with all my heart and couldn't be happier serving these people in the middle of the south pacific. (Some people forget that Tahiti even exists, because it's always covered up by that big box they put on those big maps that you hang on walls)....Anywho:
Je vous aime! J'aime mon Pere Celeste et je sais il vous aime aussi!
Keep on keepin' it real!
Ua here au ia outou et maururu no to'outou here e mau pure!
Gros bisoux a vous tous (pas vraiment)
