Things are going good here at Tahaa. I'm still companions with Elder Firuu but transfers are in two weeks and we are both feeling that he will be transfered this next transfer. Other than that the work here is going good. We are very busy all week long, which means we are riding our bikes all week long. I think two weeks ago we rode our bikes over 100 miles during that week. My leg muscles are significantly stronger than before my misison because of all this biking. And spending all this time outside I have been able to produce a pretty solid missionary tan line (RMs you know what I'm talking about). 

This past week we got to go down to Raiatea for a zone conference with our misison president so that was pretty fun. There isn't a lot more stuff I can say with the time I have left but I am safe and sound here at Tahaa and the work is going well. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers and I wish everyone a marvelous week and a good General Conference.

This last week I drove a massive ferry boat (not really)

I am looking for my bike in this picture. (my bike is at Tahiti getting its 
 brakes changed)
And we only had one bike for a little bit this week so we were forced to walk for a couple days. We were very excited to be able to walk everywhere.

The zone leaders came down from Raiatea this week and we had a blast with them. I am holding in my hands one of the world's best meals, poission cru, otherwise translated as "raw fish"
I think I have seen pretty much every species of banana by now. These bananas are ginormous.

We taught a lesson at the end of a dock this week. It was a pretty cool view

The missionaries of French Polynesia are now armed with 12 gague shotguns (joke)

And we did some beach tracing. The feint island in the background is Raiatea
