Only five minutes to update!

Okay, so I only have five minutes, since the internet person decided not to show up... again, but some people were nice enough to let us use the half-hour public computers!

 So this week was a pretty interesting combination of finding new investigators and getting yelled at. It was a pretty good week though, I'd have to say. We have one new investigator who came to church yesterday! His name is Petelo, and he's really humble. It's really cool to get to be there for people to realise that they've found what they've been looking for, and get to better their lives. No baptisms coming up yet for YahouĂ©, but we're finding new people every day.

Well, that's my five minutes. I love you all!
Everywhere the light touches...everything in this picture is in our sector, plus some that you cannot see in the opposite direction.

A crazy-looking fruit a member gave us.

A few questions Jordan answered this week:

Tell us about the weather, what's it like there now?
Well, it's winter here now which means it's hot during the day and cooler at night.  So a cardigan is the winter gear I need for evenings and nighttime.

Did you intend on quoting Lion King in the sector picture?

What can we ship you?
Letters from friends.  So friends, this is my plea...please write a letter and give to me.  I will take care of the postage and ship it to her.  If you have children, have them color a page or write a letter and I would love to send this to Sister Frost.

Anything we need to take care of for you this week out here in KC?
Yes, tell Austin and Brett that I'll be praying for them.  (These two friends report to the Mission Training Center this week and will be starting their misions; Chile and Peru, respectively.)

If she is able to get on email later on we will update the blog and send a new link.  Thank you for continuing to pray for Jordan's safety and health.  We truly appreciate and covet your prayers!

I climbed a mountain!

The start of their trek up the mountain

Halfway up the mountain

Almost there!

"Hello family and friends and everyone else!

This week was really great.  We've met a lot of people and we had  a lot of really great lessons. Then we hiked up Chapeau Gendarme with our district with past Monday (yesterday)! Chapeau Gendarme is named that becuse it resembles the hats (chapeau) that the police (gendarme) used to wear. Think Javer from Les Mis.  It took about two and a half hours to climb up the mountain, and about an hour and a half to get back down.  My  legs and shoulders are sore, but it was so worth it!

Other than that, I don't really have a whole lot of time to send all that happened this week, but there's plenty of pictures!  I love you all so much!

Incredible miracle!

"This week, we had an incredible miracle!  Last week was incredibly difficult for both of us.  We worked really hard but we weren't seeing the results.  All of our appointments kept canceling, we contacted and contacted, and hadn't met a single person who was willing to listen.  By the time Sunday came, we were both pretty down and dedicated our fast to asking The Lord to give us just one opportunity to share the gospel with someone.  Then, Sunday night we contacted a woman who invited us in less than a minute after we started talking to her.  15 minutes later, she asked us if we wanted to meet her sister, who lives down the road. We went then and there to meet her sister, and taught them both! They invited us back the very next day, and when we arrived, we were surprised to find that they had invited three more family members to come and listen to what we had to say!  They then asked if we could fix two lessons every week where they could all five come and learn about the gospel. We have been blessed beyond belief and we are so incredibly thankful for this opportunity to be here with them!

So that's our exciting story for the week!  I love you all so much!

My District will be hiking up the tall pointy mountain this week!
We did our studying at the beach today.

Another beautiful picture of our view

Proof that I belong in this sector...half of the roads are named after famous musicians and artists.

More proof!

And last, but not least...

"A picture from a field trip to Mont-Dore when our whole district ended up stuck on the other side of the tribe, who shut down the only road that could get us back home after a district meeting.  (They own the road.)"

I asked for further explanation of what shutting down the road means and she gave me further details:

"The tribe was angry at the French government, so they lit big piles of brush on fire in the road and the gendarmes (police) had to go calm them down. They just shut down the road for a while after the fires were cleared to make sure it was safe.  It really was just an inconvenience for us. Ha!"
