I hope everyone is doing great! This week was faaaaantabulous, and I was able to do a big self evaluation about my mission and establish what I still want to accomplish with the weeks that I have left.
This past Thursday we had conseil des dirigeants with Président Bize and the other leaders of the mission. We focused a lot on obedience and numbers. And with the year soon coming to an end it has stressed a lot of us out.
Des fois we focused too much on achieving a numerical goal than inviting others to come unto Christ (worldwide mission objective), and looking back I realized that achieving that numbers goal never really brought happiness on the mission. My comp and I really saw that we were the happiest when we forgot about numbers, lost ourselves in the work, and lived and breathed off of the joy and happiness of helping the people we teach. And while focusing on those feelings of happiness, we saw that we would also achieve our weekly goals without even knowing it!
We focused our formation in our réunion de zone the other day on the feelings of joy we feel after a hard days work...even if the numbers that day don't show it. So y'all...live and breath the happiness of this work and let those feelings motivate others to COME UNTO CHRIST!! Woohoooo!!!
Other than that:
- we had a super fun movie night with our ward. We watched Other Side of Heaven, ate pizza and other foods that made us gain more weight :')
- Yesterday one of our amis called us from Papeete to tell us that he was too high to drive back home to Papra (40 minute drive) for his leçon #weedalldayerday
This work is AWESOME everyone! I hope y'all have the opportunity to grow your testimonies of Heavenly Father's love for us and Christ's restored gospel! Cool!
Ok...so yea that's it everyone! Haha passez une bonne semaine tout le monde! Je vous aime!
