New Discoveries Tracting and Teaching with the Mechitiw Missionaries

Today we went tracting and teaching with Elders McEwan and Fermanis.  This picture is taken from the top of the hill in the jungle just above where our apartment is located.  The picture does not do it justice, but it is a beautiful scene, one of the very best on the island.  We enjoy going out with the young missionaries and we get a real chance to be a part of preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  We met with an inactive member today and could feel the spirit as we talked to im about becoming active again.  He has faith and knows that the church is true, he just struggles with some issue with friends, etc.  He would really be an asset to the youth if he could put it all together again.  We are going to work with him as he has expressed a desire to possibly teach seminary or institute.  This would be excellent!!!

Elder Fermanis showed us a couple of new fruits that we did not know existed on the island, as you can't find them n the markets or the little stands along the road.  There are Paw Paw's on Chuuk.  I know them from Kentucky, but here they are!!!  He pointed out another, but I couldn't really tell what it was.  He will show me next time he has one.

The Lord's work continues and progresses in Chuuk!!

  1. You're going to have to post pictures of these new fruits! I've never heard of "Paw Paws!" :)

    I can feel the spirit as I read your posts of the truth of the gospel and that Christ lives! What a great message you are sharing with the world!

    I hope some new elderly couples arrive soon to join you! I'm sure the missionaries love having you there to lead them!! Can't wait for more posts! :)
