Toe - Bora Bora

Not much news here in Bora! A few slight medical problems but everything should work out great!

I was so so sad to hear about President Monson this past week.  HE WAS A PROPHET! And still is! How grateful I am to live in a world with prophets on the earth.  It's always such a new concept for the people we teach, that of modern prophets, but I can't think of many that are greater.  I know that God is our Father and He loves us.  He loves us so much He has done everything possible to ensure that we will make it back home to Him.  I know that this church is true and living and if we choose to have faith we will be blessed.  And if we are blessed, our lives will be filled with joy. 

I invite you all to read a talk from president Monson this week and to follow his council- READ THE BOOK OF MORMON EVERY DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I LOVE YOU ALL!!!! GOD BLESS YOU EVERY ONE!

Paradise - Bora Bora

I love Bora!

Today for p day we went fishing with some Tahitian homies and caught 22 fish and chilled at a motu (lil island next to the island) and it was so flippin  pretty!
The only bad part is the sun is pretty bright haha!  I totally forgot to apply one of the 297 bottles of sunscreen my mom sent me off with so my complexion is currently the shade of Barbie's convertible.  
I'm starting to get to know the island pretty well, and everyone is so cool!  
I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year!  
My legs are feelin the burn- even though we only cover a quarter of bora which is a pretty small island, it's decently long on bike, especially with the hills.

Last Christmas was so awesome! I got to see my family! I love my family! 
Sorry if I didn't respond to you personally I have negative time

I hope you all make some great new years resolutions and keep them!  Change is a great thing.  Repentance- one of the greatest gifts of all time, the ability to have second chances is simply a change of heart.  I invite you all to think and pray about what Heavenly Father would have you change in your life so that you can be more happy:)  

I LOVE YOU GUYS!

Happy Christmas!!!!! - Papeete

You guys it's CHRISTMAS TIME!!!

That means we all get to share and give gifts and serve and love others and be happy!

#LIGHTTHEWORLD I mean... everybody's doing it.

I LOVED the Christmas 1st Presidency devotional.  Watch it if you wanna feel the christmas spirit.

The greatest joys in life are to be found in following the teachings of Christ.  And that doesn't mean just going to church on sunday.  It's about how we treat others.  Above all it's about loving God.  Show your love for all those around you this holliday season and you will be able to more fully understand the amazing love that God has for you.

I LOVE YOU ALL!!
