What a whirlwind week! Our Kiribati branch is having a branch camp next week, and they wanted to have a dance competition at the camp! It will be the Flaxmere members vs. the Hastings members, and the practices this week have been pretty intense! Sister Amato and I went to one of the Flaxmere rehearsals, and learned all of these Kiribati dances! It was so fun! They were laughing at how well we were doing…. Don’t underestimate the power of the missionaries!!!
On top of those practices, our Flaxmere 2nd ward is entered in a music festival! We are going to be performing acapella, “The Circle of Life” From the Lion King. I am so pumped! We had practice on Friday, and the music coordinator for our ward, Sister Lawrence, asked me to sing the solo…. Ummmm I don’t sing! She ended up asking our bishop to do it;)
On Saturday, one of our member’s husbands passed away, so we went over to visit her. They were hanging in there, but they hadn’t eaten all day, so Sister Amato and I made them dinner. We made Chicken Curry, and while we were in their kitchen, there was this massive shark in a bucket on the floor. They wanted me to gut it…. but we ran out of time… drat! Bahahaha Next time;) Islanders….
MIRACLE OF THE WEEK!!! There were about 40 members at our Kiribati sacrament meeting on Sunday! That is more than we have ever had! I was so happy! Sister Amato and I were just looking around, like EVERYONE is here! It was so cool! Hopefully we can keep the numbers up! That’s pretty much all for the week… another week of random happenings with sister Weight.
I Hope you all have a great week! Thanks for the love!
Spiritual thought: 1 Peter 1:7, The trials we have towards our faith, are far more precious than gold. They make us stronger, and they build us towards Christ. “To our Father alone could we turn for comforting support, not to ask for relief from, but strength to endure what was to come.” Although these trials may push us down, there is one person we can turn to for strength. There is one person who can lift us up out of that place, and make us stronger! YOU CAN DO ANYTHING! Faith can move mountains!!!
