Laorana everyone,
This week was an interesting one. We started out the week by flying up to Tahiti early Monday morning.  After that we kind of just chilled the rest of the day. On Tuesday Elder Ollerton and went on splits for the day with some other missionaries, which was a nice change to the habitual Rurutu scenery. On Wednesday all the other missionaries serving on islands (around 34 missionaries) were brought to Tahiti and we had a meeting with our mission president and his assistants, so that was pretty cool. On Thursday I found out that I will be transferred soon, within the next couple weeks normally, so we will see what happens with that. I'm thinking I might train this next transfer so we will see. 
Friday was the mission conference. We had some church leaders come to talk to us, including Elder Russel M. Nelson, Elder Tad R. Callister of the presidency of the 70, and Elder Kevin Pearson of the 70. Before the conference all the missionaries got to shake all of their hands which was pretty cool I guess. It was really neat to hear from all of them though. It was definitely one of the most spiritually powerful days of my mission yet.

It was really good to see all of the missionaries that were in my district in the MTC too. It had been a good two months being off the social radar, so it was nice getting updated on everything. Overall a good week but now we have some work to make up on here in Rurutu. That’s all I've got time for this week though. I'll try to keep everyone updated on the transfer status as best I can.
Faaitoito everyone!

We got to ride on the plane back with the Elders serving at Tubuai! Since the islands are neighboring the plane stopped first at Tubuai and then Rurutu.  

The island of Tubuai, looks pretty cool!
