Last Week At The MTC!

Umm how has eleven weeks gone so fast! I can see how missions go so fast for missionaries when their on their missions, and I'm only in the MTC! Honestly I have loved being here this long, the time to read, and study has been super needed! more so when I am doing in in three languages!
I have never enjoyed reading the Book of Mormon so much, and I hope all of you will pick it up and read it every single day! Another amazing blessing of the MTC is I have been able to go to the Temple every single week! The blessings the Temples brings us can be found no where else on this planet! Being able to go every week and feel of the spirit has strengthened me so much! It is crazy to think the next time I will be in a Temple it will be on a Island in the middle of the Pacific! AH! next P-day will be in the middle of the ocean! haha today I was clipping my fingernails and I was like "Woah! Next time I clip my fingernails I'll be in Tahiti" haha I promise I am focused!
So I board a plane next Monday night for Tahiti, and I think my emails will get a little more exciting!
I know this is the best decision I have ever made in this life! And I want you all to know that I love you and think of all of you when I count my many blessings!
No, I didn't fall this week, but I did find a dent in my knee....hope that heals!
Read the book of Mormon!
Go to the Temple!
Don't fall!
Oh and if you are having distress in you stomach! Grapenuts are wonderful!
just add a banana and they taste a little less like gravel!
Love from Provo!
Soon from Tahiti!
-Elder Moller

-My lovely Zone yes eighteen of us are leaving! (representing France, Tahiti, Canada, Congo)
-our district!
- Hahah the tower of soda that fell, and Elder Smith who started it all!

Talk to you soon!


Week Nine!

Okay this week was quite the week! It went fast but it was, well it was a week!
It all went "down" on Wednesday!
So I should have known that it was a rough day when we were running late to class, and I was supper thirsty so I took one of my water bottles to class, so me and my comp. were waiting for our class to stop singing so we could go in. and I took a big drink of water! (I was thirsty) and I was about to swallow it when the biggest itch crept up my windpipe (it was like a grasshopper) It was like my body was saying, nope! you don't need this water. so right at this moment a poor cleaning man was walking innocently down the hall with his vacuum, and a gallon of water came shooting out of my mouth, completely soaking this poor wayfaring man! I looked at him and he looked at me, I had no words to explain why I just did a spit take all over him! so I backed up into an empty classroom and hid into the corner, waiting for him to leave. I think my companion tried to make up some excuse on how this guy must look like someone I know, but in all reality I think he might have just needed to be reminded about how Catholic baptisms usually go!
Okay so I thought this was bad enough, especially when my comp. described it as "he just...blew up" but my day got worse, I was walking to class after dinner and I was probably humming a song or something maybe looking for the small little birds that like to see how close they can fly next to missionaries. But We got to class and you know there are TWO very intimidating stairs in the front of our building, well my feet just decided it was time to not work and I tripped so hard! I was falling, falling in slow motion, and I just decided to go for it (because you know I wouldn't want to break a hand trying to catch myself or anything) so as I am falling I look up and I see a Swarm, no a Horde of missionaries (I think they were all new that day) more missionaries were walking past than I have ever seen walk past our class room! And I already was a foot from the ground and coming in hot! okay I hit hard, so hard my shoe flew....Flew! all the way across the doorway! I started laughing out of shame and embarrassment and I just wanted to stay there forever. But I have a work to do! so I peeked up.. There was the massive wave of missionaries flying at me! (I know it was there first day and I know the story of the good
Samaritan was going though there heads) I was up on my sock and foot so fast! I told them I was fine as I was swiping my card as fast as I could to be in our building! I finally got it open and limped in then I distantly heard a missionary say "Did you really get that on camera!" Who just walks around with a camera rolling! who! so if any of you see a video of a missionary I'm his newly dry cleaned suit falling on his face up two stairs, I don't want to know about it!
Alright Other than that this week has been great, I lead a district counsel on the atonement! and It was so powerful and the spirit was so strong! we listed words on what the board on what the atonement is and what it gives us. Ever good word you can imagine was on the board! I am here on a mission because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ! My whole message of hope is because the act of love Jesus has for me for suffering for my sins, and because the love of God for giving us all his only begotten son! Yes I cried in front of my whole district....again. but I am so thankful for the Atonement, and I am so grateful for that act of love shown to all of us!
I love you all and I have only one more P-day in the MTC
E VitiViti!!
I get our travel plans of Friday and believe Me when I tell you I am going to run to the mail room (being mindful of the stairs)
Thank you all for the love!
I will talk to you next week!
Love Elder Moller
Okay Talking picture of the same place for 3 months is hard!
Haha I promise some awesome ones in 2 weeks!!
Love you all


Week Eight!

This week has been a little slower than than the rest, but I have only got 20 more days here! 20 days! It feels like I was born and raised here. Tahiti doesn't even seem real yet, I'll let you know when it does seem real! This week was full of studies, readying, learning, teaching, eating, and sleeping. speaking of sleeping, I guess I sleep a little better than I thought. The Elders in my room tell me that I make some pretty interesting noises when I sleep. Like they say I groan like I am stretching, But then they say I'll mix a few other things in there. Like I'll let out a groan and then end it off with a few words then cough, or I will mumble something and then start laughing in my sleep (My companion says when I laugh it scares him really bad) Or I will cough twice and then make noises like I am in Pain. I sleep Fine! Okay, I'm great! A Elder in my room said he almost got up to give me a blessing he though I was having such a hard time! I would be more worried but Elder brown says I sound really happy when I talk. Like I'm having a great conversation with my best friend! And I don't have any control over it, so I just mainly laugh about it.
This week we taught a lesson to a new investigator in Tahitian! (The lesson you read off a paper and if they talk like there asking a question you answer "Yes" and hope you guessed right) And I don't know how but Our investigator asked why he should pray about the Book of Mormon, and My companion shared Moroni 10:27 (He meant to share Moroni 10:4-5) (so I could have fixed the mistake but I had completely no idea what was even going on) Well turns out This scripture says something about Judgement and Dust! Not what we wanted! He asked us what the scripture meant and we told him it means he needs to pray often... Better here than in the field.
Thank you MTC!
Okay now for the exciting part of my week! so Elder Smith in my district has been collecting sodas for the past 8 weeks he had a total of 64 cans of full soda stacked up against his wall. So one night I was competing against an Elder trying to best duplicate a picture of Lehi on the boat to the promised land! and They were funny pictures sense we were drawing so fast! So there was our Zone and Half of another zone in Elder Smiths room. Well Elder smith leans against his wall and a shock wave of force tidal waves towards the cans. So the wall was eight cans by eight cans so it is pretty tall! and The tower of fresca Didn't stand a chance. In slow motion the tower starts falling, in an attempt to save the falling fresca he slams it back into place sending a Fresca aftershock off to hit the unsuspecting Coke tower and the Minute Maid tower and all other sodas! It was a slow motion cascade of silver and color! (it was beautiful) One Elder attempted a Kamikaze attempt to save all 64 sodas and threw his body at the onslaught of refreshing summer drinks! and He almost had it. But there was soda retaliation! the sodas on the top of the towers were careening down pelting this elder in the head, He retreated! All hope was lost! The shimmering wall of carbonated death was upon us! My whole zone and half of the other zone saw our lives flash before our eyes! The fist can hit the desk and all chaos broke loose! the cans split open spaying elders and everything else in sight! There were cans spinning on the floor and Elders tripping over each other trying to escape the onslaught! Elders were going through the mass of cans trying to find the soda spraying elders and papers. It was a Sticky pool party, except no one was having fun! I was not much help at the time because I was laughing so hard! First I was amazed by the beauty and the spectacle of it all! Then the laughter took over! I was choking on my laughter and coughing for most of the time but, that night I went to bed happy!
I love all the love and support that I feel from all my friends and family!
You all have been there for me every step of the way!
I love you all so much and I know this message is true!
Be happy be strong!
I love ya!

Elder Moller
