1 Corinthians 13 and Moroni 7: Charity

Each week has started to go by so fast. I feel like we didn't really do much, but we must have done something! haha I'll try to make his week interesting.

Monday and Tuesday Elder Maltelour was sick so we stayed in. I got lots of studies in, that's for sure.

Lately we've only been teaching our core group of faithful investigators. The ones that miss out on a lesson during the week tend to slip away from our grasp. We haven''t officially dropped any investigators, but when you don't see them for a month, there's not much you can do about that. 

We've got a baptism happening this week! Things are looking good for Sam's baptism. We've been seeing him at the chapelle each week, and each time he says a prayer he thanks Heavenly Father for letting him get baptised.

We taught Nicolas and Giselle this week. I expected it to be a little tense from last week's fiasco, but it worked out really well. Elder Maltelour wanted to talk about the Law of Chastity, so that's what we did. Actually the spirit was really strong by the end. It wasn't a really powerful lesson or anything, but the spirit was there and I could tell that they felt it. They made us sushi, and at the end, Rehi, our DMP, shared the scriptures from 1 Corinthians 13 and Moroni 7 about charity, thanking them for having charity for us. That led to a little discussion on charity, inviting the spirit even more. Good way to end the lesson, and I think at least Nicolas is opening his heart more and more. We'll see what happens.

Things aren't looking great for the three baptisms on the 22nd. We haven't seen Turumai and Maude this week, and there are still a lot of important things to do before the baptism. With Lucas, the main problem is his family accepting, so we'll try tommake that work, but the date my be pushed a little.

Alright, that's about it for this week, and I have to go now, so faaitoito everyone!
