Bonjour family & friends!
Comment ca va? (How is it going?)
I hope you have all had a fantastic week! It's been AMAZING in Charlestown this week!
If there's one thing I want to share with you this week, it's that Heavenly Father truly loves us. We are really His children. Do we continually feel the weight of those words? I want to invite you all to pray to feel anew who you really are. We've sang the words of I am a Child of God countless times, but we often do not live according to that knowledge. There is no need to fear, there is no lasting sadness. God lives. He is our Father. He sent His son Jesus Christ to sacrifice for our sins and to overcome our afflictions. Let this knowledge sink deep into your hearts and be joyful!
I love you all as my brothers and sisters because every day that I do this work I feel more sure that we truly are all one big heavenly family.
-WE WENT TO COFF'S HARBOUR!!!!!!! It was gorgeous and wonderful. It's full of beachy Aussies, and African refugees. It is a place FULL of potential. The sisters who work there are absolutely incredible. I was blessed to spend the day with the lovely Sister Shelley from Utah. She is such a light! I love Coff's and the sisters who labour there! :)
-Sister Mapuhi & I had an amazing lesson with one of the recent converts. He's starting to love the Book of Mormon and it is the best! :)
-Elder and Sister Neilson from the Pacific Area Presidency came to visit our mission and it was incredible. We learned so much from them. They really helped us to gain a vision for what we are here to accomplish. It was a revelatory day!
-We got to play soccer with all the sisters this morning and it was too funny. Running through the sprinklers and having a photo shoot also might have happened.
I love this work, I love these people. I love you all so much! Please stay close to Heavenly Father through daily prayer and scripture study. Great things await us all.
Have a great week.
