Febuary 17,2014

Dear Family and Friends!

      Transferres rolled around this past week. Elder Bulunga got
shipped out to Avotrou to work with Elder Allred. He's going to be
missed a whole lot by me and by the Branch. Elder Gray is going to be
working with Elder Brou and Elder Rasolonantenaina.
(Ra-solo-nan-toe-nine) until this Friday. I'll be working with Elder
Florion; a new Tahition Elder fresh from the MTC. Me gusta!

      This last week was kind of busy. We did quite a bit of teaching,
a mangez-vous with Elder and Sister Semken, Zone Conference, and
getting ready to ship Elder Maxwell off for the home land. Elder
Bulunga and I taught like madmen this past week. So so so so SO many
first lessons were given to so many different people... but with the
every heartbreaking result of not having a single one of them come to
church. It's been really frustrating.

      *** Warning. The rest of this email contains a really really
cheesy experience. ***

      After feeling uber frustrated because of the lack of success and
the lack of progression this past week I decided to pray. It was a
really really random prayer. Nothing crazy. Nothing extra-ordinary.
Just a prayer. I told my Heavenly Father how I felt and asked for

      When I finished the prayer I started looking through a really
old Liahona. I stumbled across across the picture of Abinidi in Kind
Noah's court.

Somebody asked "Which one is Alma?".
I replied "What do you mean".
He asked again "Which one is Alma?"

      That's when I understood. All at once my prayer was answered.
I'd realized we'd done our best and that's all we needed to do.

      Anyway. I love y'all and hope everybody has a fantastic week!

-Elder Gray
