5 October 2016 – Week 47: Salut!

Hi family!

So the cyberbase is closing early (again) and so I'll just send another quick email today. Sorry! It's not me, I promise! haha

So last week, we had an exchange with the Robinson sisters and I got to go to Robinson with Soeur Fuller and we had a great time! We had several lessons and then tried some contacting where we got rejected several times, but we also find an ami they'd been trying to get into contact with. Great exchange!

Also, Soeur Caress and I had 20 lessons this week!! We'd been having about 10ish lately, but on Saturday we'd already had 12 and had several scheduled. So that day, we made the goal to get 20 lessons for the week. And we did it even though 3 of the scheduled lessons were cancelled. We just prayed a lot and were guided by Heavenly Father to the people we could see. Plus, we didn't give up even though as it was getting later, we thought we wouldn't be able to do it. But we did! And it was the first day of the Month of Miracles, so we started it off with a bang!

Then yesterday we had a special training with President and Sister Granger and the APs. We talked a lot about obedience and how that's the first thing we need to do to have success. Something I really liked was that we talked about how the Lord is bound when we do what He says. So if we're obedient, he has to help us with the things we ask for. Obedience brings blessings! 

And today we have a district activity at the centre culturel Tjibao (y'all can look it up) and then we're gonna eat pizza! Yay! 

I hope you're all doing well! Je vous aime! Bonne semaine!

According to Wikipedia, the Tjibaou Cultural Centre was built in 1998 and "celebrates the vernacular Kanak culture, the indigenous culture of New Caledonia, amidst much political controversy over the independent status sought by some Kanaks from French rule."
