What A Wonderful Week! (Email Dated May 11, 2014)

This week has probably been one of the coldest on my mission! Sister Amituanai and I have been SO cold. You should see us at night! We literally look like little marshmallows. IMG 4935, 4936. We aren't allowed to sleep with our heaters on, so we just bundle up and try to stay warm in our blankets. (: It is such a fun adventure!! Every night after dinner, when we go back out to work, we have scarves and gloves and coats and jackets and the works. It's quite a sight. (: When they say this cold is different from Utah cold, they mean it. This kind of cold gets into your bones and no matter how many layers you put on, you can still feel the bitter cold. BUT it's so fun! I wouldn't trade this for anything in the world. (:

We had zone meeting this week and one of the sister and I dressed in almost the exact same colours, so we just had to take a picture. (: IMG 4932.

On Friday, our ward put on a Mother's Day Activity and it was such a blast!! The Elder's Quorum fed us and I'm telling was the best feed that I have every had in my life. It even trump those that we have in America. Holy Cow, it was so good!! IMG The Gang. From left to right it goes Cemiel, she's an investigator; Vivid, our recent convert; Sister Amituanai, the best companion ever; and me. (: It was such a blast and I was full as after, it's not even funny how full I was...(:

On Saturday, during Personal Study, I was studying the conference ensign from October, a talk from Ulisses Soares called Be Meek and Lowly of Heart. Holy cow, this talk was definitely an answer to my prayers! "Meekness is the quality of those who are 'god fearing, righteous, humble, teachable, and patient under suffering.' Those who posses this attribute are WILLING to follow Jesus Christ, and their temperament is calm, docile, tolerant and submissive." I had been praying about what attribute I need to work on and this talk stuck out to me! Well, I now know what it is that I need to work on. (: In Zone Conference a couple of weeks ago, Elder Pearson said, "The Spirit knows how you learn, what you know and what you need to know." How true that is!! I love the Holy Ghost and I love learning by it! (:

Vivid is doing really well!! She went to the temple to do Baptisms for the Dead and she loved it!! I love watching her continue to progress in the gospel. It is absolutely beautiful!! (:

I am so good and my area is continuing to grow and get better! I love New Zealand! I love my companion and the New Zealanders, and most importantly, I love the Lord. (:

I hope you are all well and I just want yous to know that I love you!! (:

With Much Aroha,
Sister Pearce. (:
