Heeeeey you guys!!!
So this week was fantastic!
We had to do a lot of ballads...again out of our zone so we were rarely in
the secteur, but we had some pretty sweet miracles:
- Cathy said that she LOVED the chapelle and was super touched by every thing
that was said!
- We met an old amis named Louise who said that she's been waiting for the
missionaries to come by again. She didn't have our number, so all she had to do
was wait and pray!
Au lieu de ça we got TRANSFER CALLS! AND I'm staying in Temarua! Which means
that I'm "dying" (finishing my mission) here! I'm absolutely PUMPED
that I'm staying in this secteur! I love my amis, the members, and the secteur
en general! ....but....Soeur Tidjine is getting transferred, something that was
super hard for both of us to accept, but she's going to my old secteur of
Nuuroa so I'm pretty excited for her!
Yesterday after notre chapelle we got the ok from assistants to head to
another zone (Faaa) for their conference de pieu (stake conference)! One of my
converti recents received the Pretrise Melchizadek (the second order of
priesthood) and asked if I could come and be there with him and his famille.
After the meeting we filed into a small room. I took a seat with his wife and
his two children. We watched as men of the stake placed their hands upon his
head and set him apart and gave him the priesthood.
Though the room was quiet, I could feel the Spirit of the Lord in the room.
A feeling of love and peace washed over me. I started to cry as they blessed
Irving, for I knew that he was now able to bless his famille with this power
that Heavenly Father has entrusted him with. I couldn't have been more grateful
for that opportunity.
The famille AMARU is a famille Soeur Lasso and I met when we were in Taravao
together (Novembrer 2015-April 2016). The couple was not married and had
been living in concubinage for over 15 years. Their kids are ones I absolutely
ADORE, and we taught them for a good few months. A week after I was emergency
transferred out of Taravao I got a call from Soeur Lasso telling me that Line
and Irving want to get married and baptized along with their daughter Heimiti!
I watched this famille become united. I watched them enter into the waters of
baptism and come out completely clean of all they have done before. I can see
the light on their faces, the happiness, the JOY of this gospel that has filled
all of their hearts and their home. And now I am a witness of the amazing power
of the priesthood that has been given to the father of the famille. He finally
has the power to bless his famille!!
I'm so grateful for the priesthood, for it is the power of God that he
bestows upon worthy men of the Church to bless others! Y'ALL....it's seriously
one of the greatest things that our Heavenly Father has given us today!!
Apart from that this week was great!
I love you all so much! Je vous aime beaucoup! Ua here au ia outou!
Passez une très bonne semaine! Bisoux à vous tous!
