Wow, the work is hastening here in Faaa. Our biggest problem right now is trying to schedule all the lessons . We're always running late. That's what you get when you're in a biking secteur with some of the biggest mountains in Tahiti to go up and down multiple times each day. We weighed ourselves, and unless these scales that I've been using aren't accurate, I've lost about fifteen pounds since coming here to Tavararo. Que de bonheur, que de bénédictions!We taught Sebastien* and Paea* and later that day we came back to teach the sister of Paea, first lesson, so at this point they've got to have the first lesson memorized. It's still haere maru haere papu with them, we're going to try to engage for baptism again this week.
We got a reference for this woman named Helene* who we thought was in our secteur and we fixed a lesson with her and then found out she's not in our secteur. So we went to that lesson and tried to hand her off to the other elders. She said she didn't want any other elders because we were handsome. Uhhhh... So I'm not sure how we're going to do that. But the lesson was really good and she agreed to pray to know if the LdM is true. The only problem was her friend that assisted the lesson who had already talked with missionaries and knew the doctrine. She just kept asking questions about things like baptisms for the dead and the sabbath day and if we can see God. So we tried just focusing on Helene. It was a little hard, but it ended well because she felt the spirit. We also gave a blessing to her baby named (after a book of Mormon Prophet) and explained to her where that name comes from. It was a really cool experience.
