New Year Time

Well I have a lot to tell you all today, at least I feel that way!
 So I will start with our Baptisms, on the 20th we had Heifara's baptism.  It was great, her brother baptized her and we were so happy for them!
Then on the 24th was Moerani's baptism I gave a little talk just before the baptism and I don’t really remember who started crying, but all I remember is I was just sobbing as I was giving this talk and she was down on the front row doing the same thing! Gosh I know it was me who started crying! But after her husband baptized her! She bore her testimony, and then we were crying again! haha ahhhh! 
 Then was Christmas! I got to talk to my family who I love so much, I was a little glad we speak English because no can understand us, but when my companion got on Skype his family started asking questions like "Do they understand French?".  Made the lady who’s house we were staying at a little upset, she kept saying to herself "We are civilized" I just nodded my head.
 Just after Skype we were able to visit a Protestant baptism. It was good to see a little bit what investigators feel like when they come to our church, but I had no idea what I was doing! Stand up, sit down, sing really loud, stand up, invited to take sacrament, no thank you, baby baptism, I was instructed to take pictures, hahaha me and my companion were the baby baptism photographers! There were so many babies! And then a prayer that everyone said at the same time, then we do the Biz with the pastor and then we go home! And now I know just a little bit more. It was a testimony strengthening experience! hahaha Merry Christmas to me!
 And then my bike caught a sickness again, aiiee iaaahh, my bike, we can say Exploded!, it exploded! The silly tire flew out of his little home and exploded like a firecracker! So the next day I found some duct tape and I fixed him up all nice we but tire tube in place and we pump him up, there was a whole in the outer rubber tire, and the tube ever so slowly crept out, my companion was taking a picture and then it flew at him and exploded again! Hahahaha My bike is so sick! But really I am so sick of my bike! Give me a boat! Well anyway a side from my bike I had a wall rounded Christmas this year!
 Happy New Year one and all! 
Love you all!

 Love Elder Moller
 Bonus Story
Sooooo one day my fan died!! Died, Elder Moller Can not sleep if he doesn’t have his fan so I went to the store on my bike, and bought a fan! My companion asked me "great how you going to get that home"
I looked him in the eye and I said 'oh you watch" If there is a will there is a way! I rode my bike though the middle of town with my fan! I’ve got no shame! And I have slept like a baby ever since. You better believe that that fan is saying with me until I finish my mission!

Ho Ho ho

Merry Christmas one and all,
We just got back from a zone Christmas party at Raiatea and oh goodness the little boat took so long to bring us home. 
So I just have two seconds today!
I love you all and have the best Christmas ever!
Remember why we have Christmas and how we can give back to Christ!
Know that I love you all and that if you want to be happy I can tell you you can find it though other peoples happiness!
I'm sorry that my Christmas message is so small but it's full of love! That's what counts!
I know we have a Father in Heaven who loves us because he gave us His Son, a gift that makes everything possible!

Love Elder Moller

the Chicken got me,aint nobody got time for that

When I say Chicken, I mean the, a horrible sickness here in the ocean islands! 
I’ll explain it a little bit! If any of you have seen the Sword and the Stone and remember the sickness the evil witch gets after her fight with Merlin well its kinda like that! You start with a random part of your body hurting.  Tuesday three fingers on my left hand hurt, then it spread to my other hand, then my elbows, then I got really tired, so by Thursday you think your all healed and that’s when the red dots start appearing, all over! And then you’re just sore, and look like an old person when you walk! It’s not fun, plus you have to say the word Chikungunya a whole bunch and that’s just to much hahaha, but other that that we had a stake concert at Raiatea so we went and sang with our ward with all the other wards in the stake (which consist of three different islands) it was good.  Well that was about it. This week will be better!! Has to be!

I love you all, sorry I don’t have big news for this week
But its beginning to look a lot like Christmas...NOT
Islands are just the same forever!
Oh well Merry Christmas!!!!
Love you all
Until next week!

Elder Moller

Happy Happy December

Happy, Happy December

Well this has to be a really short letter today! But this week was great we had many lessons, and we are preparing for our two baptisms that will be on the 20th, we are just busy bees! But my companion and me have really seen some miracles this week that come from following the Spirit! I know this Gospel is true, I know that our message is for everyone! I know no matter who you are God knows you and he loves you! I have seen that in this work! I have seen the importance of my mission. I thought I was going to change others lives but it’s my life that changed. Changes are never easy but this is a change I will be forever grateful I made, and the best/scary part is I’m only half way there. I have a testimony that when we make a difference in someone else’s life, God makes a change in our life! I hope you all can remember that this Holiday season because frankly I have to keep reminding myself its almost Christmas, you wouldn’t think it here! I did have a little Christmas chocolate countdown to help remind me but I told you changes are not easy and Elder Moller ate days 8 until 24 a few days ago! Well anyway I’m never buying one of those again! And I got off track again! Well I love you all!!! Have a good week!!! 

You’re all the best
Remember that

Elder Moller

These are some questions that Elder Moller answered for me – Dad/Kelly


Honestly the people are super nice here too!! I hate house to house it is not effective so when I want new investigators I just talk to everyone I see and sometimes all I have to say is "have you ever talked to the missionaries" response "no" is there a time we can come visit you response "sure" of course you need to follow the Spirit but it is not hard for me to make investigators, president already labeled me as a "finder missionary" sooo that’s cool I guess! We do have member help finding investigators and that helps a lot! There are a ton of inactives in this mission not because of their testimony but because of their way of life "island life". 

I rarely speak English with Elder Escoffre from Toulouse. We teach mostly in French but it depends its a mix of the two, I speak as much Tahitian as I want, not horribly a lot but I want to change that. Church is mostly in Tahitian and that helps me understand because in Tahiti it was not like that! Monsoon season just started and the worst hits at the end of the month, I think it goes until March hahaha The raincoat in helps a little bit!

umm this is the only picture i took this week

It Was Thanksgiving

Well this week was good!

I would like to wish everyone a happy Turkey Day.  I ate Chicken but its all pretty much the same thing. Also this week we had another service project! It was kinda fun hahaha we weeded and covered cow poop with dirt hahahaha I guess it doesn't sound fun but it was fun.  But the really fun part was after, the guy who owns the land took us into the forest, oh goodness it was so cool it was like a small version of Tarzan. There were vines we could swing on and mud that I slipped on. Me...Elder Moller. Well anyway we get to this massive pile of rocks and he tells us it was where the Tahitians used to sacrifice people! wow! is was kinda scary but really cool too! Also today for pday we visited a pearl shop. Soooo expensive I almost pooped! I asked what the most expensive thing was! a necklace 41,000 dollars! oh my goodness!! I died! Plastic is better. It all looks the same! and if you buy pearls don't give them to pigs well because that's what we learn in the bible! sooo all in all I'm doing well, I'm happy to be here and It's  weird am almost half way there! where does the time go! 

I love this work, I love Tahaa, I love helping people
I love all of you, Keep being happy!
And remember its not about pearls it about the things we can carry with us after this life!
So have a happy first week of December and make some good memories and friendships!
love you all

Was it Thanksgiving?

I don’t even remember if I missed Thanksgiving, no one reminds me of these types of things here! I think I ate a package of Ramen noodles! After being drenched in rain after forty-five minutes of bike riding, I was practically in the Ocean riding my bike, I think I might have been swimming, it rained so hard! My poor gospel picture book took the consequences! Happy Thanksgiving to me! Well any way in other news this week was great we were.... I’m going to be honest, I kinda forgot this week. I looked at my pictures to try to help me and all I have is me taking picture next to a pig Hahaha soooo I did that! It was fun! Oh yeah we had our first Sondage, its where the members go out and find investigators for us, kinda like a questionnaire! It was so great we got so many references and the members loved it so much! So I was so happy, still am! Also one of our dinner appointments was a surprise birthday party! That was exciting! I love food and good surprises! And crab! A bunch of members know I love crab so my life is complete! Ohhhhhh I remember something I blocked it out of my mind! Hahaha we did a service project this week in the junglest of jungles! And we arrive there with our cute little member who I think is about 70 years old and our service was to go into a field and dig holes! Hahahaha oh my gosh me and my companion dug these massive holes for three and a half hours in the noon day sun hahaha I think I was in the movie holes! Well anyway I was dying of thirst and I did not trust little rusty pipe sticking out of the ground to give me disease free water so I scavenged a coconut with all my might and I found one! And my survival instincts told me to throw it on this conveniently placed rebar sticking out of the ground! Well all in all it worked and my life was saved! So basically I’m ready for survivor man after my mission! And am disease free!

So that was my week! I didn’t get no Turkey but I did find some blisters on my legs from my sunburn last week hahahaha oops!

Remember if you decide to teach a lesson under a tree, there are sure to be Evil Chickens thinking they need to be up there! And they think its funny to do a little poop on the people below! Luckily for me I know what those Chickens want to do and I was keeping my eye on him the whole lesson! His poop missed me by a foot! hahaha one point Elder Moller!

Remember also that I love you all I may have forgot about Thanksgiving but I’m thankful for you all! 
I love what I do and I am thankful for all that God does for us!
I’m thankful for prayer
I’m thankful for your love
I’m thankful for coconuts
I’m thankful for this Gospel

Time for email

Hello every one I have to do a quick email because we are just plum running out of time. This week we hit some struggles, we had a family who was progressing towards baptism and their marrage tell us that they wanted to stop seeing us. They are having a lot of problems right now in their family, I wish they could continue in the one thing that could help them the most. But were moving along! Im so late today because we had an activity with the whole zone on the island over and we had to take a boat to come back, well anyway it took some time. For our activity we went to a Motu (a little island by the Reef) it was super fun it was a little missionary island for the day! and we played volleyball and took pictures! But all in all I am well! my bike is well and the area is well! The horrible but amazing thing about our Gospel is how much you can see the opposition, it makes it so hard but it is such a testimony builder at the same time! This week was good but I hope this next week will  be a little better :)
Thank you all for the support and the love!
know I love you all!
keep being strong! 
keep being you!

Hawiki Nui

This week was Great! We continued to have a ton of lessons and we were able to fix four baptisms this week! We are really being blessed in our work! I'll start with my bike problems today! Yesterday I had a invisible hole in my tire, it disappears and when I put the tire back on my bike it's flat! So I borrowed the neighbours bike, it's a massive thing with one gear and a huge baby seat thing attached to the back! Hahaha every time I saw my shadow I laughed so hard! So I was rockin it yesterday singing " we will all press on in the work of The Lord" no matter what bike you ride! So anyway also this week was the worldwide ramming competition the Hawiki Nui, it is right in our sector, so there were 100 or so Va'a (Tahitian canoes) racing from Tahaa to bora bora so we saw a bit of it and it was so cool! It's better to be preaching the gospel on an massive bike! Well anyway like I was saying God has been really blessing us, find, and teach! We are seeing such great progress in this work! This sector wasn't doing so hot when I got here, who knew all it needed was a a missionary who falls in the mud and laughs at his own shadow! But I can say we're not alone in the work some one asked me this week "is it easy for you to say I love you" hahahahaha gosh it's beyond easy! If I love someone say it dang it! And coming from my family I learned well! So I told them all I love them right then in every language I know! And then I did it again Sunday when I gave a talk. Say it and show it! And right now I love my Heavenly Father, my family and all of you! That is why I am here on my mission because I want to bless my Tahitian family here in Tahiti and I want to be a better person for you all when I get home! But I'm also here to show God I love him and I want to give him my all! Show you love through service! I could ramble on that forever! But know that I love you and that I may have spent to long today looking for shells (hahaha I know Elder Moller choose that p day activity) and now Elder Mollers Dainty white legs are a shade of very cherry red! But he still loves you all and he did not run over a poor helpless crab this week, and yes I did ask for sunscreen but all they had was tanning oil! I'll send so many pictures next week! But I love you! God loves you! I pray for you all! 
Okay have a good week my family and my friends!

I'm not a bike person

So all is well here, this week was great. We had many lessons and we are in the process of recontacting old investigators, normaly in a area there is a book that has information about the area and the ward, when I got to my area we had Five, aint nobody got time for that! so there were a bunch of names from years and years ago that were trying to find! but the great thing is were finding all these people and we're restarting teaching a bunch of them. also this week I heard that a cyclone was coming, i don't know what that means they told me it would be here in December, that is a slow cyclone! so I still dont know what that means but I but a lot of canned goods anyway to last me through the weather! also I have fallen so many times this week, I am not very coordinated anyway on a bike but when you make me ride through muddy mountain trails! I had to leap off my bike a few times to save myself from falling in massive mud puddles! and when I do that my shoes fly off! so i wade though mud in my socks to find my shoes hahahaha it is just sooooooo fun! but I did get a little excited today and I started running down a hill and I ended up riding down the hill on my butt! hahaha good thing I have a butt of steal after getting over my bike butt! But my legs don't hurt anymore I guess I had my seat too low hahaha I'm just not a bike person I popped my tires about three times this week! so i ended up putting somewhere around eight patches on my tire because the air kept escaping out. didn't work so I found a new tire tube, my companion asked if it was the right size, I told him "yup all bike tires are the same" well they should be! after i shoved a huge tire tube into my little tire and pumped it up really a lot! it worked for a few hours! until it popped and the tire tube came out as i was walking home and wrapped around the frame of my bike, so I ended up carrying my bike home. then I had to go to the store and buy a tube that fit my tire! I'm dumb I know but look at all this stuff I'm Learning! God is humbling me though my bike! but I'm not a bike person. I think all missionaries should ride unicycles so that we only have one tire to fix! or pogo sticks, there has to be a better way! I promise we taught a lot too! and I got a lot of good workout opportunities this week! but I wouldn't be here and I sure wouldn't be happy still If i didnt know that this gospel was true! I'll carry my bike all the way around this island if I have to! I'm just happy I'm here helping people because this message is what brings happiness into my life! I might be really dumb when it comes to bikes but I have a testimony that this Gospel is true! Why else would I be here!

I love you all so much learn somthing from me today
put your bike seats high, bike tire tubes do come in different sizes and if you see an innocent crab on the road don't pretend to be funny and act like your going to run over it, because just maybe it's a suicidal  crab and he will run at you and you will run over him, and you will feel bad the rest of your life!

So many yummy little crabs

This week was awesome! I am still getting to know the sector and the people here but it couldn't be going better! We have found so many new investigators and we have been really picking up the work here in taha'a. The people here are so nice and they really know how to eat! Oh goodness I told myself I wasn't going to gain weight here but yesterday we get to our dinner appointment and it was like a buffett but not just any kind, it was a crab buffett, oh my goodness! I ate so many yummy little crabs! If we have many more of those I'll be In trouble hahaha. But I think we'll be fine we are biking all day long, because we have to cover half our island. Also this week we had a conference with Elder Nielson from the seventy. It was so good, I have really changed the way I'm going to teach after that conference! It was so uplifting and just what I needed. But we have seen so many blessings happen in our sector, I know that God loves every single one of his children! But it is fun to be in a little bigger area where you have to go into valleys and cross rivers and such, but I have so much laundry to do all the time! Hahaha so much rain so much mud it's....something. But the people here are so willing and so happy. It's truly a blessing to see how people live here there is so much to learn. One thing that I have seen in the Tahitian people is their patience. A few days ago I was at a members house for a visit, this family is trying to start selling jewelry to tourists, so they make all their jewelry at their home. They would pierce and connect pearls to make bracelets and necklaces, so they have a large box of small connector things and metal beads assorted perfectly in little compartments. Well as we were talking the kids ran by and bumped the massive box of beads off the table. I held my breath as I watched the beads bounce in all directions across the room waiting for the reaction of the parents. The mother who i was talking to was still looking at me as if nothing happened. Not one word of impatience or anger came out of her mouth. And the kids(and missionaries)happily cleaned it all up! I was so impressed and wondered if I would have had the same reaction. Probably not but then I thought what use do we have to lose our temper if the beads are already spilt. They kids felt bad enough and they were happy to clean It up. I was impressed because I felt that those kids were valued more then a box of beads. I know it's a dorky little story but I learned a lot.
Well I hope you all have a good week this week
Know that I love you all
And I love this work
Thanks for all your love

Map for Elder Moller,-151.488401&z=18&m=google.hybrid&q=Hipu%20tahiti&find=ward:354813


What a week oh my goodness!
So before I left we did so many last minute lessons hahaha I had to see all my investigators one last time! We were booked! Then Thursday morning my companion took me to the airport and I got on a plane! Okay first of all airports in different languages are stressful I almost missed my plane because we had to take a stop in Bora Bora before going to Raiatea I didn't complain it was cool to see! It was a little awkward when the plane filled with Asian couples, I felt a little out of place! Hahaha but I made it to Raiatea and we went to the docks and we took about an hour boat ride to my island of Tahaa. So I'm here in one piece and it's cool! I'm in the Cumorah ward and Hipu branch, and we live right next to the Cumorah Chapel, it's named Cumorah for the massive hill it's built on! Luckily we live right next to the chapel so I get to walk up the mountain cumorah each day! Also better news is we have about five dogs that live at our house, I named them shella! All of them! It makes it easy to remember. Shella 1 2 3 4 and 5. But they're cute, not all nasty and nappy so that's good! We have the smallest house I've ever seen, but we have (I hope) drinkable water because I've been drinking it, and cold showers! But it's nice an advantage of the mountain we live on is the beautiful view of Bora Bora and all the smaller outer islands on the edge of the reef. So I would also like to add that this sector is soooooooooo big! Oh by gosh! We live I the middle of our sector and it takes about an hour and a half on bike just to get to one end, my legs hurt so bad hahahahaha who can enjoy these postcard views when there is lava bombs going off in your legs! It's good for me! But still! Umm oh yeah my companion is Elder Escoffre, he is from southern France, he started his mission in April and he has been here in Tahaa for about a month. He is cool. I feel like that's about all the work here is .... slow for the moment. But it will pick up, there is a ton of potential here! I'm happy to be here, once my legs stop killing we're going to kill it! But I hope all is well wherever you all are! If there not, there are probably not lizards that hide under the inside of the toilet bowl  where you are, waiting for an unexpecting Elder that has to use the potty to attack! Comfortable visits to the bathroom don't exist anymore.  
Love you all! 
Also our fridge likes to make sure I'm paying attention by giving me electrical shocks if I touch anything that's not the handle!
It rains a lot here
All the making of a great adventure! 
All the while doing the work of The Lord!

Love you all have a good week
Sorry there are no pictures, we are on iPads,

Conference Weekend

Hello Family and Friends!

This Week was busy, busy, we had our Zone Conference as well as General Conference this last weekend, It was great, I learned so many great things! There were a ton of talks focusing us on the Prophet, Thomas S Monson. How we need to follow and sustain our Prophet and then when the prophet spoke he focused us on Christ! I loved it. Then we had another concert at the temple where we sat and talked with our investigator Emily, she is going to start the lessons with us! But over all this week was great, I loved being to hear the words of the prophet! And I love being able to help in this work, being able to testify that Christ lived and he still lives, that He restored his church on the earth again so we can have the steps that we need to return and live with our Heavenly Father again! I am so happy that I have the happiness this Gospel gives me. I am so happy to have the opportunity to share this message with the people of Tahiti. I’m grateful for our living prophet and I am thankful for all of you!
Have a good week
Vous etes Top!

One week since I looked at you

Hello everyone, I cant believe how fast weeks go here, they never went this fast during high school, whats up with that? 
So this week was super good we found a new investigator, her name is Sandra, she would be at our lessons with her neighbor and she was super nice so we invited her to take the lessons and she said yes, so we passed back past her house the next day and we had our first lesson, We started talking about the restoration and then we started talking about the Book of Mormon, I asked her if she had read it and all she said was "yes", so I was like "oh thats great, did you like it? did you get past the first few chapters?" yeah she got through the first few chapters, she has read the whole thing! she told us " yeah I know your church is true I tell my friends all the time." so we asked if she wants to join Christ's Church, she said she would like to, we asked whats stopping her, she reply's "nothing" I Found the Golden Investigator that I didnt think Existed!
So the next experience that I would like to share happened yesterday, we also started teaching a new investigator, her name is Miri, we had a lesson with her right after church, we started by bing a little dorky and saying that we have a magnificent gift for her, that she better like! and we gave her a Book of Mormon with our testimonies inside, she took it and set it in front of her and started crying, She then started to thank us and bore her testimony that she really believes that what we teach is true and that she knows that the Book of Mormon is the word of God.
It kind of took me and my companion by surprise, but it definitely brought the spirit into the lesson.
But later I wondered to myself why doesn't everyone cry when we give them Book of Mormon!
I'm for real! If we really understood the importance of the Book of Mormon! the sacrifices made, the faith it took it get the Book of Mormon in each of our hands, wouldn't we too cry!
The Importance of the Livre de Mormon is huge, every principle, doctrine, word, even letter in that book is for each one of us and our salvation after this life and happiness in this one!
I got a new perspective this week, and I hope I can help share that with you all today, If studying not just the Book of Mormon but the scriptures is not a part of your normal day to day activities, make it! because that is Answers, blessings, and guidance that you are chooseing not to receive
I know we have a Father in Heaven who truly loves us, no matter who we are, what we do, or where we are in the world, or in our lives. I know that we can seek his love and follow it. It will lead us to blessings and joy we never thought possible.
I want you to all know that I love you and I pray for you!
Keep up the Good work!
Love you all

Same old same old #2

Same Old Same Old #2

Bonjour Everyone

I hope all is well wherever you are in the world, but things are going great here in Tahiti.  

This week was great we found some new investigators and we have started re teaching some that I haven’t seen in months.  

So I’m trying to think if anything new or exciting happened this week but I want to say that it was just a good week! We were able to go to the Temple again this week (second time since I’ve been here) it was great I love how the spirit is the same no matter where you are in the world! It’s the same love the same peace! 

Umm well I don’t think I have really any stories for this week but just know that I’m good and I love my mission, I love talking to people, I love helping people feel the love God has for them through our message, I love getting weird looks at the store, I love making necklaces with cute Tahitian grandmas that try to gossip with us (gossiping is bad, don’t do it) I love walking down mountains in the pouring rain and then investigators bringing us massive pieces of plastic to wrap ourselves in, I love awesome shirts that people give us, I don’t love forgetting that you washed your sheets and you never dried them at nine o’clock at night so you search for another blanket because you do not want to just sleep on your nasty mattress, and all you find is an emergency blanket (aka tinfoil made into a blanket) and you try to pretend that its cool and your going to sleep great but in all honesty you try and don’t sleep at all!

But I do love my mission I love the people here I love this work I love helping people change their lives I love helping people better understand who it was who suffered and died for them and why he did it! I love my mission, it’s hard but the work of salvation isn’t easy, it wasn’t easy for Christ, why would it be any different for us! I love my mission, because I can better understand the love my Savior had for me when he served his mission.

No Subject. :)

Well once again hello everyone! this week was good as normal! My new companion got here Elder Beck he is from Highland Utah and he is pretty neat! it's been fun to have a pair of new eyes in this sector! We have been teaching some awesome people and having some great lessons with Inactive's too! the not so fun news is our car is being used by some other Elders until next week! so we get to trek up and down our mountain a lot! luckily Tahitians are so nice that they stop and offer rides! it's super sweet! also this week we did another service project! it was so easy we sat in a members house with fans and juice making necklaces out of flowers! hahaha its not the most rugged and rough service project out there, in fact I kinda feel like I'm in some knitters club, but it's fun! I only jabbed my finger once! and not to brag or anything but I am one mean flower threader! watch out! haha so maybe we'll find a little more manly service next time, maybe not! Also this week a investigator I gave a book of Mormon to about 6 months ago came back, I talked to her right when I got here and now she is back, and talking about wanting to get baptized, super cool! also this week we talked to a lot of drunk people, well more like they talk to us, one ushered us down the street to make sure we would be safe, haha thanks drunk guy we can count on you! other than walking everywhere, drunk guys and my new companion life is pretty much the same here! great! I love this work I love seeing the changes in my life and the live's of my investigators and members! thank you for all the love! I'm so greatful for all the wonderful people God has placed in my life.
God can't change what he doesn't have, if you want to be changed for the better, give yourself to God.

Same old same old

This week was super good, my Companion will be leaving me and my new companion is Elder Beck, He is in the Outer islands right now and doesn't get here untill Wednesday so I'll be doing some work with some members until then. This week we had some awesome lessons with our investigators and some inactives, I made friends with one of our inactives kids, he is about 11 and he made sure to sit by me while we did our lesson occasionally patting me on the back and telling me I was his best friend, So basically it was awesome and I have no idea what I did! umm but I really am loving my area am I am happy to be able to spend some more time with my awesome investigators. We also have six elders living in our house so its pretty crowded having our kitchen doubled for a bedroom but its fun to hear everyones stories of the day. So the exciting news of the week is we had a concert at the temple where we invite our investigators, and within two seconds it was pouring rain! the Tahitians had rain escape instinct! I was amazed how fast things cleared out! But the concert was good I like getting wet in the rain! that's about all this week I love this time I have to be here! I know this message is true I know God loves his children and will do everything he can to help every single one of them! I love you all and I pray for you
Have a good week
Choose the right!

I can't' ever think of what to put here

Hello my friends and family
So this week was good me and my companion as we keep busy up on our little mountain! This week we found some new investigators, an old Tongan couple! They don't know French so we do the lessons in English which is weird! But I think it was my favorite lesson we had all week! After we sat and looked at their family pictures we started teaching about the family, and it was going so good and the spirit was there  and they would stop us and say "I have a song" and then sing to us! Songs about prayer and Christ being next to us.
It was so great! So I sang for them "I'm a child of God" and they kept saying Amen thoughout the whole song! I loved it! Then we bore testimony and he told us how he loves talking to us because it gives him a warm feeling inside. It was a simple lesson and we had to speak slowly because its been almost 35 years since they have used it, but it was strong, He told me to tell my family that I found a new family here in Tahiti so.... sorry mom. and then we finished with dinner, orange juice, cheetos and peanuts. I know that it is by the small, easy, and pure truths that the spirit can really touch the hearts of the people you teach, And when you love them it makes it that much more sweet. Maybe its by the small and simple truths that we can have the great change in someones testimony! Our message is not complex its not confusing, I dont need to read off ten pages out of the bible to prove my point, all this truth requires is one pure, simple, prayer. Why would God make it hard? I love our message I know its true, I love this work, I love all of you!
(sorry I dont like that that rhymes but im just going to leave it)
Have a good week and know that I was freezing yesterday when it hit the artic tempreture of 70 degrees!
Oh dear! 
Love you all!

Billabong Pro. That's pretty cool

Hello All my family and my friends and the other people!
So this week was full of lessons and pretty normal stuff, we had a lot of family nights and visits with inactives, oh we got invited to eat at our members house that lives in the nice part of our sector, We never go in there because if a car passes the gate that doesn't live there or not invited the police come sooo. we dont go other then this last friday, oh my word The house was so pretty there was carpet and I saw stairs! okay it was kinda scary too I didnt know how to act, we ate chicken legs and we ate them with forks, it was so hard I am used to just shoving bagetts in my mouth, so here we are me and my companion fork deficit  we would accidently fling the meat off our plates and hurry and grab it before any one noticed hahaha it was so funny! okay well the big highlight is when we got promission to go the the Billibong Pro Surfing Championships today! We drove down to the opposite side of Tahiti and took a boat out to watch professional surfers on these massive waves! oh my gosh it was beautiful! well that was pretty neat! well that was our week I know this gospel is true! I know that I love this work! its better than Surfing! Thank you all for your prayers and your love, Have a good week and never eat chicken legs with forks!

My Friends and Family
What a week this week has been, I told an Elder that I needed a little vacation and he just looked me in the eye and told me "you are in Tahiti what more to you want?" I guess I need a little reminder now and again! we were able to start this week great having up to 10 lessons a day, until Thursday, we had a Heiva activity for the Stake which consisted of massive drums and ukes, and Tahitian dances! our ward was assigned the cook islands for our dance, all the dances look the same to me, but anyway it was great. then Friday we had a mission conference with Elder Pearson of the 70, it was super good. I love being able to see all the missionaries of Tahiti. Then Saturday was alright, we got a call early in the morning informing us that one of my new converts had passed away that night, Fredrick had been a convert for about 4 months, I was able to teach him and his wife and his two kids. We were asked to help prepare his grave sight, which we did for about five hours that day. Then later that day we had a stake baptism, Three baptisms from Taapuna (my area) and two from another ward. Our mission president and Elder Pearson came to support the baptisms. I was asked to do the baptisms for Marie, a single mother who we have been teaching for about five months, I was nervous so do the baptisms in front of everyone for my first time but it went so well, After the baptism we stood in the water tears running down our cheeks because the spirit was so strong. Our second investigator was Sandra she started taking the lessons again with me and my companion after we watched the Joseph Smith movie together, She is the first of her whole family to leave the Adventist Church, but her testimony is so strong and the lord had his hand in her life. And the third investigator is Hinano, It was her marriage three weeks ago and she picked this saturday so her whole family could come, who are non-members. Her testimony was so strong and she thanked her mother who normaly smokes two packs a day, who didnt smoke at all, all day long just for her baptism. The spirit was so strong Saturday, I basically just was blinking out tears the whole time, I don't know how those tears got there! It was just a spirit filled day. But I know this gospel is true, I know everything we need in this life we can find though this gospel, I know that death is just the door to eternal life, And I am thankful for my Savior who opened that door for us. Im glad I have a testimony of the true gospel and that I can help others find the truth as well. thank you all for your love, I love you, I pray for you, I know this church is the true church of Jesus Christ, All it takes to know it is one prayer, If you search you will find.
Have a good week 
Love Elder Moller

Another marriage

This week was good we had another wedding, haha I promise were not crashing them! but it was super good! super simple just like the couple wanted, the bride made lots of the clothes and everything else was donated by the ward, but I loved it super small and sweet, me and my companion were able to be witnesses of their marrage so that was awesome, I got to sit in a fancy chair and sign a paper! yeah awesome! well basicaly all week were just a bunch of preperations for our baptisms this saturday! we have five coming up, and I hope they all will be ready! Im sorry this letter is rather short today but the work is busy in our area! and I'm doing well!!
thank you for your prayers and your love

Coconuts and cake

Hello everybody
This week was fantastic partly because we had so many service opportunities also its because we had a wedding where I wasn’t being forced to eat by big Tahitian momi's! So I loved it! But we started this week out with a ton of lessons and a lot of visits with inactives, I just love being able to talk with everyone here, they are all so nice! Also this week we helped our ward do coconuts for the heava (a massive celebration)! And I never know that a coconut would be so much work, good grief! But it was fun! You can’t complain when you can just eat fresh coconut when you work! Also this week we helped prepare the marriage for one of our investigators and her boyfriend! We set up tables and chairs and blew up balloons (80 dollars worth) so that was a party, It was even better that we had millions of balloons and my investigator sat all the way on the other side of the room because she is scared of balloons! What! We should have made her blow them up, prepare for her wedding and overcome a fear! But we enjoyed doing it! IT was all worth it because the wedding was awesome, there was a cute little Tahitian band that followed them around all day playing guitars and Ukes, I could use a band like that every day! Life would be better! But the wedding cake was massive and we cut it all and put it on plates, (took a while) but the food was great, raw fish, and four calves, only the best!
Basically this week was really busy but it was great! I love this work, I love service
I love that no chickens have found there way into our house! Oh quick note: what is the point of turf, what? Its like soft looking grass with hidden sharp glass underneath! I fell just a tiny bit and welp I lost a knee! Just would like to caution everyone to wear elbow and knee pads if you play on turf okay! Its just like sin, it might look fun like grass but all it will do is make you spend 6 dollars on gauze!
I love you all, have a good week, Church is true

Baptisms and Dead Pigs

This week was amazing; we had two baptisms (Roselyne and Willam) I have been teaching the two of them and their family since I got here! Their testimonies were so strong and they are so happy!

Our bishop’s family also butchered a pig, I just kept myself entertained playing with kids and naming organs soooo that was fun!

Also this week well, I was sitting on my bed at about 9:00pm reading the liahona and my companion decided to get up, And all of a sudden there is explosion on balks and squacks and feathers everywhere, oh my gosh I don’t even know how this Chicken got into our house! It had a freak out pooped and peed all over the room and flew down the hallway and out a gap in the wall... Thanks Chicken! Gave me a heart attack and make us clean up your poop! Okay whatever!

But this week will be great we are going to have a baptism and marriage! So I’m excited, they jokingly said that I would do a solo for their marriage hahaha funny right. Then I caught a glance at the final program "musical number: Elder Moller" Oh dear! So after that we might have a canceled marriage and baptism... wish me luck!

As you can see I had a lot of fun with all the Tahitian kids I love them even if they try to eat my tie! They tell me I smell good so they can be my friends!

Oh also an American family visited our ward this Sunday who were on vacation, I translated for them and after they asked me what fun stuff there is to do on Tahiti, I just laughed and said I have no idea I just preach the Gospel and clean up chicken poop! So that was nice until I had to explain to all my ward that they were not my family and it was not nice to be able to see and sit with my family at church, and I have a year and a half left on my mission. hahaha

This week was good, my advice for this week is enjoy the small things.  Find joy in the young in the old and in the handicapped.
Find joy in yourself if you cant find it in anything else!
But if you’re looking you will find it! I am finding joy in this work!
And I am finding my joy through service and love
Thank you all for being you
I love you all

Service and centipedes

Hello every one who I love so much! this week was as busy as they get, basically there is a ton of work in Taapuna but I love it! finally my dear investigators Rosyline and William are ready and their baptism will be Saturday I have taught them every week since I got here and I am so happy to see them progress! so I just want to start by telling you about this service activity that we had, so it was at our bishops house last Saturday morning and I honestly has no idea what we were going to do, so hahaha my companion got picked to clean the pigs and I got picked to do the garden, I thought I was so lucky! so I get taken over to this jungle! and I was told to move all the pots over across the yard, but be carful centipedes live under the pots.... there were like 60 full pots in the midst of this jungle that I had to find, after I found a pot I have to move it with my foot to detect any centipede activity, because these things are so fast about five inches and if you get stung it's extremely painful, oh and they can jump! so I foraged in the forest looking for pots and hauling them across the yard all the while my companion is spraying little piglets with a hose. so that was fun I did see a centipede but no harm! (we chopped it up with a piece of metal) so that was fun service also I cut down a 30 foot tree with a rusty machete woo! that was fun! Also the good news is our house hasn't done any weird things, so I am happy about that! I think that was the excitement of our week, many lessons and many people to see! we also got some new rules from our new mission president, one is we get to go to the temple every few months! I'm so happy about that rule! the temple here is small but beautiful! we are so blessed to have a temple in our mission! last thought, chickens make some freakin weird noises, if there was a colony of raptors on the island I wouldn't be surprised! sorry that shouldn't be the last thought the last thought is how much I am blessed being here serving the people of Tahiti! I love the work I love the service I love how much I'm learning and how much I can see the little miracles every day! thank you every one for all the support I love you all!
I love you all
I hope your yard work is a little less stressful 
I pray for you

Taapuna is great

Hello everybody, Im sitting here enjoying (kinda) some strange tahitian tecno music haha today Elder Christensen said it is like tecno and hillbilly music put together, so thats fun! its National Day so theres that! Well to start out this week has been good we have started playing rugby every p-day and I have to admit although its touch all the large tahitians really motivate me to run just a bit faster haha. This week we have been doing some awesome work with all the inactives in our sector. I love how sometimes an invitation is all it takes to help people change. No this week was uneventfull as far a chickens and zits, but we fixed three baptims and we gave a ton of blessings. Just Great Missionary work, oh exciting news We has a stake activity where we bring all of our investigators to the temple and take tours of the garden, seven investigators came and we found two more because of it! hahaha they went though the visitor center and took every pamphlet every book of mormon every picture they could find. I was trying to get them our the door to go eat when they started asking for the pictures on the wall. I love that they just want things that remind them of jesus i guess. The best thing is I am best friends with one of my momi investogators and she doesnt know french so we just laugh together while we talk made up sign language trying to comunicate. throwing in tahitian words. I love my sector so much, Okay I just kinda rambled today I dont really have a story unless you want to hear about a rash or my ninja skills smashing the fastest massive spider with a peice of plastic. I will find a good story next week
love you all 
have a good week

New President

Hello again my dearest friends
This week we got our new president, President Bize, he is from France but has lived in California for the past 20ish years. He is awesome, I am excited to see what he will do with this mission. Tahiti has so much potential growth! So this week we had a mission wide conference with the new president, I saw some of my MTC members for the first time sense they got lost in the outer islands! We had some Elders from Rangiroa stay with us. This last week I have had to deal with a lot of stuff that goes along with 6 Elders in a house.
First I was taking a shower when the shower decided to expode on me! Okay whatever tahiti person makes shower hoses clog and explode needs to find a different job. I kinda fixed it! Go Me the handy man!
Okay second was not at all fun, One night I guess our trash was out to long, long enough for our whole landry room floor to be covered in maggets, I sprayed the whole room down in bug spray and I made sure the room was chicken accessible for the clean up the next day! Thank you Chickens for One thing!
Three, some charector decided to steal the missionary bikes out of the landry room yesterday night, well good think Im the only missionary in our house with a bike now because I put it up on the second level of my bunkbed! Efficiency! if anyone tries to steal my bike in the night, they will awake a missionary who knows how to make showers explode, so watch out!
four, well we forgot our key for our house one day, it took me about 30 seconds to break in.... that explains the bikes!

Okay well I am just a home maker now!
Also small miracle this week for our lesson during Church 16 people came including investigators and member intergraters, Oh my word and so many people came to church! I love Church! I love investigators! I love this work so much!
Oh also parents sorry if there is a slight charge on the bank account, I guess because I had a few zits I was made an appointment for the doctor. I guess I was suseptible for infection. pshh well I hate the heath care system here! I was told If the gentil antibiotics didnt work that I might have to get a more powerfull AMOCILLICILIANXILINE (I made that up dont search it) and I would have to go in for the monthly blood testing, like no big deal! yeah honestly pray for my zits to go away! please!
I love you all so much If any of you need me to pray for your zits or anything I will!
I know this gospel is true
I love you all so much
Have courage have hope
You already have my love from Tahiti

One Year Older and Wiser Too

Hello again my friends my family and those i dont know who read my letters
This week was good as all my weeks are but it was better because it was my birthday! 
I am old and wise now! This week was good with all of our investagators many investigators who want to bet baptised, We just have to work with them and the spirit to overcome addictions and such. But my investigators are happy so I am happy. This week was full of suprises, first my district suprised me on my birthday after a meeting and we had a little party, it consisted of lucky charms and peanut butter! I loved it! (I even used the high calcium milk, I went all out for my birthday) I even got to use the largest cereal bowl! then an elder in our house made a cake and we stuck a lit match in for a candle, basicaly the best birthday! also I found out that we were going to be able to go to the Temple on Saturday! So beautiful! it was the first time I was able to go sense I have been here! then the next day we had our last concert, we did one more for the mission president who finishes tomorrow!
This week was good but I want to leave with a small thought 
by President Monson
"Our Heavenly Father, who gives us so much to delight in, also knows that we learn and grow and become stronger as we face and survive the trials through which we must pass. We know that there are times when we will experience heartbreaking sorrow, when we will grieve, and when we may be tested to our limits. However, such difficulties allow us to change for the better, to rebuild our lives in the way our Heavenly Father teaches us, and to become something different from what we were—better than we were, more understanding than we were, more empathetic than we were, with stronger testimonies than we had before.
This should be our purpose—to persevere and endure, yes, but also to become more spiritually refined as we make our way through sunshine and sorrow. Were it not for challenges to overcome and problems to solve, we would remain much as we are, with little or no progress toward our goal of eternal life."
And Elder Richard G Scott

"So it is with our Heavenly Father. His plan of happiness is conceived so that we will have challenges, even difficulties, where decisions of great importance must be made so that we can grow, develop, and succeed in this mortal probation. 1 Gratefully, in His perfect love, He has provided a way for us to resolve those challenges while growing in strength and capacity. I speak of the sustaining power of faith in times of uncertainty and testing.
God uses your faith to mold your character. Character is the manifestation of what you are becoming. Strong moral character results from consistent correct choices in the trials and testing of life. Your faith can guide you to those correct choices. Clearly, it is what you do and what you think about that determine what you are and what you will become. Therefore, the choices you make need to be inspired by the Lord. Others can encourage you to make the right decisions, but those choices must not be prescribed by them. You need to ponder, pray, and exercise faith to willingly make choices consistent with the teachings of the Master. Such choices are made with trust in things that are believed and when acted upon will be confirmed. Only enough guidance is given to lead you aright and not to weaken your growing character. That guidance will solidify your trust in Heavenly Father and the Savior."
Im sorry that is so long but I know that the good in this life is for us, I also know that the bad in this life is for us. God gave us this life to have joy and to grow. I know growth comes by challage, faith comes by trails, if we didnt have temptation for the bad we would never have the oppertunity to choose the good and progress in this life. But the beauty is we never have more trials than we can bear, and we are never alone. I know that this is true. I am so happy that I can be helping people in tahiti choose the good and have more joy in their lives!
Because when there happy im happy!
Thank you for the Birthday wishes and your love!
I love you all so much 
have a good week
and be happy

His Name Was My Name Too

My mission president called me last night, I held up okay until the drive home the Titanic theme song came on and I was done.
I didnt appriciate those words until yesterday,
Where ever Grandpa is, Any of us are,
our hearts and our love for each other will go on. 
I hate to bring that song up right now, but it destroyed me yesterday.
My dear family I am just writing you today, because I love you most.
I hope the viewing and funeral were beautiful, And thank you dad for puting a little piece of me in your talk. I couldnt agree more with Elder Dalton,
I couldnt be happier to serve along side my best friend, The work for the dead and the work for the living is the same work, The same love, The same saving Gospel, just in different places!
Van L Dalton was the most amazing example of how to love.
I think we all have many treasured memories of Grandpa, let us be thankful for every single one and be thankfull that will will have more in the live after this one.
This is the Peace the Gospel can bring
This is the love in the message that we have
Let us have love, courage, and peace!
For Christ was risen, and so shall we rise
to live forever together with the love of our god.

I Love you my dear family, 
I am far but I feel near.
you are far but you feel near.
Grandpa is near to all of us.

12 weeks

Hello my friends and Family,
So Transfers came! My new Comanion is Elder Calves He is from France and I am really excited to get to serve with him, This week has honestly been a blur with family nights, lessons, and a lot of good-byes on my companions part.
But I have a feeling than my French is going to get a touch up these next few months!

sorry this is so short but
I love what Thomas S. Monson said in General Conference

The call for courage comes constantly to each of us. Every day of our lives courage isneeded—not just for the momentous events but more often as we make decisions orrespond to circumstances around us. Said Scottish poet and novelist Robert LouisStevenson: “Everyday courage has few witnesses. But yours is no less noblebecause no drum beats for you and no crowds shout your name.”
Courage comes in many forms. Wrote the Christian author Charles Swindoll:“Courage is not limited to the battlefield … or bravely catching thief in your house.The real tests of courage are much quieter. They are inner tests, like remaining faithfulwhen no one’s looking, … like standing alone when you’re misunderstood.” I wouldadd that this inner courage also includes doing the right thing even though we maybe afraid, defending our beliefs at the risk of being ridiculed, and maintaining thosebeliefs even when threatened with loss of friends or of social status. He who standssteadfastly for that which is right must risk becoming at times disapproved andunpopular.
I love you all and This was a good reminder for me to have courage in all things because you are never alone, never misunderstood, never forgoten, never lost. Because Chirst is with us, he knows us, he understands us, We are Gods children and he know where we are no matter where we are! I know thats true! and I know he is there for us if we let him be! 
I love you all and I pray for you all, Be Strong and of a good courage
