Momi made us shirts

This week our cute little old Tahitian lady friend made me and my companion local shirts!! She is a sewing machine, I have a few pillowcases and a heavy-duty blanket, and she is so cute! And so nice! So those have turned into our P-day shirts.
Also me and my companion had a meeting with our mission president and our stake president this week and he told me this is my last transfer here in Pamatai, It’s sweet and sour as I love the city but I also love the thought of change. I will be getting my seventh and probably last companion then.
 Also, this week we found a jello brand cheesecake mix thing, and got quite fancy and made cheesecake for our member neighbors and we turned into their favorite missionaries instantly! We taught her how to make it and now she is trying so hard to make a better cheesecake! We will see who wins.
 Also, the other day I woke up and instantly my companion tells me "want to know something funny?" I guess during the nights I sit up in my sleep and I kinda freak my companion out often. But at three in the morning Elder Warren saw that I was sitting up again and all of a sudden I say "okay, were going to be starting with a prayer, will you offer us the prayer" and he was so confused and just kept watching me as I tell him "say the prayer please" followed by me curling up in a ball at the bottom of my bed...  He told me it was really funny and he was a little scared that I would start yelling at him if he didn’t say the prayer. I would like to add that it was all in French and second of all I am teaching lessons 24/7. 
This week has been really good! With the ward we are planning our activity (open house/baptisms) for the 26th. And we have been having a lot of success with the inactive members and with our investigators! The activity will be great! We are so busy and we are seeing the fruit of our labors! 
 I hope that these next four months can be some of the best of my whole mission. I know that this church is true.  You see it in the members all over the world and in the changes it brings in the lives and families of all our investigators.  I know that God calls us to where we need to be and leads us to the people we can help.  I know that service and charity are the keys to happiness.  I know that sharing the gospel is a calling that we all have, and the only thing we need to find is our desire.
 I’m grateful for the gospel, my family and all the people that support me.
 I am grateful for the members in Tahiti that will take kittens people leave in missionaries’ truck beds. (The cat’s names are now Moller and Warren)
 I am not grateful for Facebook, because Tahiti karaoke videos need to stay in Tahiti (available upon request.  :)   ).
 Love you all

Better to yell laorana

This week was good! We are still climbing out of the hole last month put us in.  We decided that all the investigators we had needed to be changed because all the people that we were teaching still were not progressing. It’s hard to help people change when they don’t want to. But time gives people a good perspective on how much they really need the Gospel. So we have been finding a lot of people and we have a super big open house planned for next month.  We are hoping to have a few baptisms the same day to make it special like last month. I love missionary work!
So today I had the blessing to take an Elder who was about to finish his mission to go and sign up for school.  I forgot how much I love waiting in school offices to talk to people. And today I learned to love everyone asking me if I needed help or asking who I was looking for....  I got a whole briefing on how to apply and register if I didn’t finish high school. I don’t miss school stuff that much. I did make a few old lady friends, so it wasn’t all bad. 
 So also this week we were eating with a family that lived in a large apartment complex. As we were walking up we realized we didn’t have the family’s apartment number so we waited to see if they would call us.  We waited for so long and a lady told us to go though the parking garage.  So we ended up walking though the garage when the door opened when a car went through and we made our way up to the top floor.  Every thing was so so dark.  I already hate apartment buildings as I’m so used to yelling LAORANA at people’s doors and not knocking on those.  That’s ridiculous. Well anyway, I was looking for the light switch, and when I found it and pushed it and nothing was happening so I tried three more times and on the third time I hear a slight ringing noise and I realize I was ringing a doorbell! Oh my gosh!   I couldn’t even explain my fear and what I had done to my companion hahaha it was the first "real' door to door I have ever done and it was awful. I was called here for a reason! 
Well I’m not going to say that we doorbell ditched this apartment but we walked quickly to the members apartment.  Don’t worry no one lived there. 
Also this week we had a conference with Elder Pearson and Robbins, and something that they talked about that I really liked is the need to understand the opposite to really understand a certain concept. Like to fully understand health, you must understand sickness, How grateful I am to have hard days because with hard days I can better appreciate and love the good ones. To really understand the beauty of a firefly, it needs a dark backdrop. Life has a funny way of giving us the darker backdrop, but its up to us to find and appreciate the fireflies.
 I know this Gospel is true
I love you all 
Elder Moller

PS  Elder Moller also advised us that he will be coming home December 28th. What a great Christmas present, even if it is a few days late.

It’s getting harder and harder for me to write these emails because there are so many French and Tahitian expressions I want to use, and let’s face the facts my English is not what it used to be. C'est Pas Grave Pa'i. This week was pretty good, we are finally getting out of the weird hole our Baptisms the 25th put us in. This week we found a lot more investigators and were already talking and fixing their baptisms! It’s fun. Also this week we had a reunion at the mission home! And we all ate together after so I was happy! Oh yeah so this last Tuesday I got a call from the mission telling me that I had to give a training to all the new trainers in 5 hours. What! So we had to move our lessons and I had to train a bunch of missionaries on how to train missionaries when I haven’t even trained myself. I feel like I did a good job, but the APs announced that they gave me the training because neither of them have trained and I’m more experienced. What the heck, I got gipped. Also this week we have a new elder with us who has been waiting for his visa for about 2 months to go to Australia. He is from Tahiti and he will leave next week. Elder Garbutt. Today we organized some soccer with multiple zones, we were about 30 missionaries and I got so red, hahah soccer at noon is not a good idea, I’m excited to see all the burned Americans tomorrow at our conference. 
I love being here at Tahiti it has really changed my life! I love serving my God and the Tahitian people. 

D&C 4:2
Therefore, O ye that embark in the service of God, see that ye serve him with all your heart, might, mind and strength, that ye may stand blameless before God at the last day.

I love you all so much and I pray for you all!
Je vous aime!

à la semaine prochaine

Faa'a Boys

So after these last two weeks of running around, this week felt a little slow, but went by really fast at the same time! This week we had Elder Randell with us who got back from the islands who will finish their missions today with my trainer Elder Jessop and Elder Doit as well! So I will have a total of two old companions left in the field, including Elder Warren. So that’s weird. Yesterday we had our last concert halfway around the island, it was really good but I’m so happy to be done! So today consisted of going shopping and taking Elder Randell to buy some stuff, and roaming around in Papeete! I think I’m staying in FAA'A still, that will make 7 months!! Im officaly a FAAA BOY. I actualy love serving in the city! the scetch is the best! anyway I love you all and hope all is well!
I love the Gospel and being able to share it!
Thanks for everything!
Elder Moller
P.s. This week a lady we teach asked me if I wanted to marry her daughter, don’t worry mom I said no. I hate when that happens. My companion thought it was so funny. its not funny.
