Yu go wea Abu?… from my island of Efate (October 14, 2018)


Halo beautiful famle blong mi we mi luvem tumas! Oh how much I adore you so very much. Thank you for all of your love and your support. Thank you for always loving and helping me and lifting me up and cheering me on. I love you!
This week has been a wonderful week.
We got to listen to conference! Yahoo! I love conference. It’s the greatest. It was like getting ready for Christmas. I loved the talk that Elder Gay gave and the talk by Elder Rasband. I’m excited to read them again in English! (we listened to the first session in Bislama.)

The title “YU go we Abu?” Means where are you going Grandma? A pikinini saw us walking up the hill in our area and he looked up me and asked Yu go wea Abu? Sista Nila and I couldn’t stop laughing. It was so funny!

Momma: Oh how much I love you! Time is such an interesting thing. There is something beautiful about time. The way it moves so freely. Nothing can stop it.
The people here have deepened my understanding of love. I love them with all of my heart.

My eleveator speech changes sometimes: Halo nem blong mi. Sista CArter. Mifala Misinari long Jos Blong Jisas Kraes blong ol- lata dei sent. Mifala story lo saed Jisas Kraes mo lav blong hem mo about famle. I stret bae mifala kam story…
Sometimes it changes about how God has a plan for each of us. It’s so fun!

Brr!!! 28 degrees. It’s quite sunny and hot today. I got to see the ocean 🙂

The Mansak family hasn’t come to church yet. Iris reads to Kitson (Kitson never had the opportunity to learn to read) Please continue to pray for them.

We started storying with another family Talia, Wilson, Maxly, Rae, (and smal pikinini Ryan and Talia.) They are curious, especially the papa. Rae, 10 years old. Asked us for a Buk Blong Momon and we storied with hem back in May. Now when we story he is helping his family learn. He’s a smarty!

We also storied with mama Edna again. There daughter in on a mission now in Guam. Please continue to keep them in your prayers.

Daddy! Oh how much I love you! How are you? I understand the game! Thank you!
Oh thank you for your thoughts about the wall. Practice. Practice. Perfect practice. Sometimes we will be in lessons and it will be this whole crash and burn. At the end of the day I am grateful. I know better next time. Thank you for your brilliant thoughts. I’m glad the wall was lifted and the spirit prompted you to help me take another step onto the knowing bridge. I love you!
Thank you for the numbers thought too.
Your words allowed the spirit to speak to my soul.
I love you. Thank you for being you.
Fist bump! Fist bump again!

This week the best experience was watching Women’s conference in bislama surrounded by all the mamas in our ward. I love them all so much. They teach me to love deeper everyday. I am grateful for them, for their presence, and their strength.

Have a wonderful week!
I love you!
