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

God is Love

From: Dalton Kenneth Moller <>

Subject: God is Love

Date: June 9, 2014 at 6:03:19 PM MDT

Today's subject is simple, but I think it is what brings peace to my soul most.

I have come to find that anywhere you go there is always proof of the love god have for his children, the most apparent for me is my family. Before this life our heavenly family is where we grew and prepared to come to earth, now here, god has given us families for the same purpose, to prepare and grow for this life and the life to come. Because of families we can have love, belonging, joy, friends for eternity. Families are one of the greatest places we can learn; I have noticed that no matter the family member, whether it is a parent sibling, nephew, aunt, or grandparent. There are priceless lessons that we can receive from each of them regardless of age. The family is a gift, no more a gift for the children, as it is the parents. Also a gift is the Atonement, the greatest gift of all. Our heavenly brother, Jesus Christ because of love, lived a perfect life, suffered the pains of the world (our pains), and died on the cross, because of his love every single person before and after the life of Christ can have peace, have mercy, have love in this life and the next. And all of this is because of the love god has for us, that he sent his son. And the love Christ has for us that he lived the way he lived, and died the way he died. It is finished, he did it for us. It is complete. I would like to share my favorite scripture, because it has given me strength when I have needed it. (1 Peter 5:7) I would quote it directly but I do not have my English scriptures. But it spoke to me and still does when I read it. This life is a test, but we are here because god knows we can complete it. Christ knows our cares, he knows our grief, our aches. He knows because he took them from us. But have we let them go? He is willing to support us, to take our load, strengthen us and make our burden light, but we must allow the atonement into our lives. And he is willing to do this because of the immeasurable amount of love he has for us. Remember the wonderful words we heard last conference.



In light of what we know about our eternal destiny, is it any wonder that whenever we face the bitter endings of life, they seem unacceptable to us? There seems to be something inside of us that resists endings.

Why is this? Because we are made of the stuff of eternity. We are eternal beings, children of the Almighty God, whose name is Endless13 and who promises eternal blessings without number. Endings are not our destiny.

The more we learn about the gospel of Jesus Christ, the more we realize that endings here in mortality are not endings at all. They are merely interruptions—temporary pauses that one day will seem small compared to the eternal joy awaiting the faithful.

How grateful I am to my Heavenly Father that in His plan there are no true endings, only everlasting beginnings.


I would like to add my testimony to Elder Uchtdorf, I know that all we are, all that we have, all that we can have is because of the love of our god, and our savior Jesus Christ. We can be made whole, made happy, we have someone to cast our cares upon, for he cares for us. I care for all of you and love you. Pray for me, pray for my family. I pray for all of you!

I am sorry I had no stories today but just know the work goes on here in Tahiti! I know with my whole heart that god is love, and the proof is everywhere. Even in the very people I send this to.

Big fat Tahitian wedding


How are my friends and family today! This week was really good, it is weird to me that I have been out on my mission for almost 1/4 of my mission and I’m just now finishing training, goodness 2 languages really takes a lot of time! But it is so worth it, Tahiti and the people here are so amazing, like today we were buying our food for the week (noodles, pickles, juice, peaches) and this lady just came over and paid for us she told us she used to be a member but she is inactive, she laughed and said "if you cant already tell by my cart", she must of owned a small roadside liquor shop or maybe a night club? Because no one person could consume that much alcohol. But she was so nice and I am so thankful that people have the capability to be that kind! She blessed our day! Oh also the missionaries in the area next to us changed so we have a Tahitian in the house, Elder Gruhn, He just finished serving in the outer islands and he speaks okay French, way better Tahitian, its true what’s yours is theirs and what is theirs is yours, my frootloops were gone so fast. But I don’t think he knows where I put my applesauce so it’s okay with me! haha he is awesome!

So also this week was the wedding of two of our investigators and it was so good! After the ceremony they have this amazing Tahitian dinner and we were asked to sit at the table of honor (basically the fat table) you just sit and people re load plate of food and bring them over for you, I was kinda excited. I regretted that, so me and My companion sat by Tetuaura the momi of the family who we also teach, If my plate had any bit of room on it she would push plates of food towards me and stare at me until I took some. She cared more about how we were eating then her own daughter on her wedding day. I was glad I didn’t have to get up because I don’t think I could have! so after dinner I was so full and they cut the wedding cake. It was nice until a massive plate of cake appeared in front of me, I ate it, because you know I was at the fat table and momi's side glances pushed me right along. I guess two pieces of cake wasn’t enough because three more appeared, good grief! momi asked us if we wanted more frosting, didn’t matter what we said, I kid you not I had more frosting then cake on my plate, I was so sick, I hate the fat table of honor I never want to go there again! so I don’t know what kind of fat wedding the Greeks have but I know how fat I feel after the Tahitian ones! so that was good though! oh also exciting news 3 hours before we were told we had to speak to our ward and we had the whole hour, I talked about missionary work and how everyone can be involved in missionary work, you can just do small things, help, serve, invite. because it is by the small things like kind words, loving deeds that can really bring about large changes in someone’s life. Reminds me of President Monsons talk.

Love is expressed in many recognizable ways: a smile, a wave, a kind comment, a compliment. Other expressions may be more subtle, such as showing interest in another’s activities, teaching a principle with kindness and patience, visiting one who is ill or homebound. These words and actions and many others can communicate love.

Dale Carnegie, a well-known American author and lecturer, believed that each person has within himself or herself the “power to increase the sum total of [the] world’s happiness … by giving a few words of sincere appreciation to someone who is lonely or discouraged.” Said he, “Perhaps you will forget tomorrow the kind words you say today, but the recipient may cherish them over a lifetime.”12

May we begin now, this very day, to express love to all of God’s children, whether they be our family members, our friends, mere acquaintances, or total strangers. As we arise each morning, let us determine to respond with love and kindness to whatever might come our way.

If the essence of the Gospel is love, then what better thing to have more of in our lives

serve god, give of yourself, because through service, love grows.

I love you all, I pray for you, and think of you everyday,

have a good week
