April 4, 2016, General Conference Compilation

April 4, 2016 - General Conference Compilation
Bonjour tout le monde,

C'est moi, Soeur Morrill just checkin' in again!

I hope y'all had a great week and for some an AMAZING GENERAL CONFERENCE! For those of you who weren't able to watch it HAVE NO FEAR!!! is here! It's amazing, because you get to listen to the testimonies and talks of our Prophet, apostles, and other auxilliares of the Church. IT'S SO AWESOME!!!!

So just to back of to mardi to when moi and Soeur Lasso were SUPPOSED to cherche our new companions....quelle blague. We left Taravao early to dipose our car at the shop to get to front tires and check the brakes, but once we got into the car of a couple missionary the assistants call and inform us that we are not going to be training....why? Well...the soeur that I was supposed to form decided, lundi soir, that she no longer wanted to go on a mission, and the soeur that Soeur Lasso was meant to form had no idea that she was supposed to start her mission today. So we were stranded en ville in Papeete all day with no way to get home until our car was done. We called assistants, president, the centre de visiteur, and the bureau asking if anyone needed help getting work done. Everyone said no. You could say though that we spent most of the day having really good doctrine discussions and catching up on our scripture study!

This week was full of blessings and finding people. There were days when we would be turned down by everyone, but be blessed at the last house we visit. One of those days we had the impression to go back to the last house we had just been to. We called out waiting to see if anyone would come; we were about to leave when a young African woman in a beautiful cultural dress came outside. Her name is Eva, and she just moved to Taravao, Tahiti from SENEGALE with her husband...WHAT!! That's so cool! She was so sweet, and she just unlocked the porteil to let us in without asking questions. She accepted our message and said we could come back to teach her more. She said she didn't really have much knowledge of our Heavenly Father, but she knows He exists and His son Jesus Christ.

It's times like those that I'm extremely greatful for miracles. Doing porte a porte is always up and down, but then Heavenly Father sees your efforts and blesses you with a miracle at the end of the day.

Funny story: One day after lecons, we took a break before we headed to a membre's house for our faatamaaraa, and went to sit by the beach and talk about the days events. We put our feet in the water, and then out of the blue this little boy comes out of know where, jumps in and says "I'm Catholique, so I can swim." hahahahahaha. Clarification: we can swim too but just not on the mission hahaha!
