Ia ora na tout le monde!

Conseil des Dirigean
Hey Everyone!

Happy May! I hope that everyone is doing well and that no one is dying over tests and exams at school! It is insane to think that in 2 weeks I'll be able to see you all!

This week was a great week! We had Leadership Council and in it, we learned a lot about purity. See more on the bottom as I have attached a photo and put it in my spiritual thought :) It was a week full of meetings, but, they were spiritually inspiring.

For the rest of the week, me and Elder Piazza have fought to stay upright! With crazy hours here and there all week, we were grateful for the chance to have P-Day :) Our investigators are doing well and all of the converts here are super strong!

Funny Moment: This week we taught a 7 year old named Urahere. We taught the Word of Wisdom then went into the law of chastity. Chastity in French is pronounced "Chass te tai" and Urahere refused the commandment. The way that we pronounced it to her sounded like "Chass de té" meaning: A tea hunt! We were actually thrilled because it showed that Urahere understood the word of wisdom and knew that it was forbidden to drink tea :)
Culture Shock: Got to love when a plane gets delayed that you wait for. The thing you don't really love is the hours...

Spiritual Thought: I loved the thought that was shared by Sister Bize on purity at Leadership Council. A lot of us look at the mistakes in our lives and we don't think that we can ever become pure. Sister Bize said: "The only moment when you have lost the ability to become pure is the moment when you have lost hope". Thanks to repentance we all have the ability to be pure. It doesn't matter who we are, what situation we are in, or even where we are. If we have hope we can repent. If we have hope, we can be purified, even as the Christ is pure.

Love you all, in a Christlike way :)
