Week 4-St. Pierre, La Reunion
Dear Family and Friends
I will start off by apologizing for my email last week. There was some form of an introduction before the answers to your questions, but I accidentally deleted it. Things are going well here.
We are very busy. Our schedule is filling up so fast that we are forced to schedule for upcoming weeks with some of our investigators and potential investigators. So that's a challenge, but it is definitely a good thing and a blessing. It's a great thing to be busy. I hope to be able to find ways to be as productive as possible with our time so that we will be able to do more with the time that we have.
Several of the less actives that we have been working with have started to come back to church and we have high hopes for our investigators. We have been visiting a less-active recent convert named Sister Nativel who came to church this week. She is the only member in her family and none of her children or grand-children know that she has been baptized, but they are all very friendly to the missionaries and we hope to be able to teach all of them the Gospel soon. As far as we know right now, things are going well with Jessica as well. During our last lesson with her she asked lots of questions and told us that she has been reading the Book of Mormon almost daily and that she has done lots of research on the Church website about the Church. She also asked to meet one of the members of the Branch here, which we've arranged to happen this week.
I will be meeting my mission president for the first time this week since the MTC. He is coming here with Elder Carl B. Cook of the Seventy, we will be receiving training and then attending an open invite fireside that evening. So we will be spending all of Friday in St. Denis.
Well, that is all that I am going to write this week, my time is limited. Things are going very well and I hope that all is good back in the United States. I know that the Church is true and that God loves every single one of us. He is definitely directing his missionaries and his Church here, and throughout the world.
