Week 4 in New Caledonia

If you didn't read last week's post, you need to in order to understand the beginning of this one.

So this week was kind of crazy! I`ll start with how we got back home.

So when we left, the zone leaders still hadn`t called back, so we were obligated to attempt to walk home, and ended up super-lost, because we have a REALLY good sense of direction. Just as Soeur Raney finished praying we would find our way, the B. family pulled up in their van and asked us if they could help! It was seriously an answer to our prayer, especially when we learned we`d been walking in the wrong direction for 45 minutes!

So we didn`t have any money to get food after the machine ate our card, so we`ve learned how to be really creative this week. We would have been fed more by the ward, but there are 5 sets of missionaries in our ward, and only two active families in our whole area, so we made it work. We`re also working on perfecting the "hey look we`re starving sister missionaries, feed us" look to give to people so that they`ll bring us food ;)

So we took a dinner hour the other day and played frisbee, and ended up meeting all the neighborhood kids, including two investigators from whom we hadn`t had the chance to meet yet because their lessons keep falling through. It was an awesome evening!

So we walk a lot, and the terrain in our area is pretty rocky, and so Soeur Raney and I have both managed to put holes in one pair of shoes already. Go us?

Well that`s all I`ve got for you for this week! I love you!

P.S. Shoutout to Austin Gale for getting his mission call to Chile! You rockl!

A few pictures Jordan shared with us this week:

A picture of Jordan and Sister Raney at their apartment.  They were scheduled to teach an English class; but nobody showed up so they let the Tahitians teach the Americans. We played pictionary, but the Tahitians were making up the words, and decided that pokemon and characters and movie titles were the way to go. 

Jordan is sporting one of their neighbor's hats.
