Lots of Learning

Friday March 18 2016
Mon Francais deveni tres bon! The coolest new word I have learned is reconnaissant which means, "thankful, grateful." I have also learned a few Tahitian words because Elder Crandell, Elder Christensen and Sœur Mitchell are going to Tahiti. I've learned ia maramarama (ya maramarama) which is "to know" in Tahitian. Everyone else in my district knows more about sports than me. Oh, Elder Crandell and Elder ZoBell are both from Utah, Elder Christensen is from California and Sœur Mitchell is from Australia. I'm 99% sure that I'm here for six weeks (that is, five more weeks)

I've been learning a lot about the atonement and restoration because that is what we have taught our investigator, Johnatton. He doesn't have a gold tag so he isn't an actual investigator, he is just playing the role. We just taught him about repentance and baptism and we will be teaching him about the sacrament next. It was funny because when I asked him if he wanted to be baptized he said yes. So I asked, "When?" and he said that he wanted to be baptized on his birthday. I asked when that was and he told us it was in October. I was going to say, "How about next week?" but I felt prompted to ask him to pray about it and he said he would.

Je vous aime et "FEAR NO MAN!"
