Week 71: 2nd Christmas in Tahiti

Hey guys!  This week was another great week!

On Monday after emailing we went to Point Venus and just chilled for Pday! It was awesome and we had a great time. 

Point Venus
Then we had a lesson with the Diard family (they are doing great BTW) and then FHE with our other investigator named Sebastian. Good day! Tuesday we got right back to work. Our goal was to have as many lessons as we could possibly fit in because it was the week of Christmas and it's always hard to do a bunch of lessons because people are really busy. But that wasn't going to stop us!

Christmas party at the mission home

We had our mission Christmas party on Wednesday and it was soooo fun! I saw everyone from my MTC group and I finally saw Elder Barfuss! It had been like a year and a half because we were always in different parts of the mission and it was good to see and chill with him! We totally watched "Finding Dory"! It was cool to just watch a movie again...haha...I have missed that! 

Thursday and Friday we got back to work with District Meeting and lessons.

On Christmas Eve we tried our best to get lessons done haha! But we did set a baptismal date for January 28th! Her name is Vienna and she is awesome! We are really excited for her.  She is so ready! Then we went to the hospital with our district and we went caroling to some of the sick people there. We could really feel the spirit that night in that hospital! Then we spent Christmas Eve with the family Teiti and we ate mussels, oysters, crab salad, fish, escargot, and it was sooo good!!! I ate soooooo much I wanted to throw up ha! Then we went on the roof and we lit fireworks with them...a little different Christmas Eve tradition than we have at home, but it was great!

Christmas Day we went to Church and did the Zone Leader reports. AND THEN I SKYPED THE FAM! That was great once we got the connection under control! Then we went and visited the orbeck family for dinner and it was super! Later we did a small thing with our district and played the ukulele, the guitar, and played and sang Christmas songs together! It was a good day!

Doing ZL calls on Christmas day ... the work never stops

Sorry this was a whimpy letter haha but i wish you all a Merry Christmas and I'll see you all next year! The mission goes by way too fast! I'm loving it!
