All You Need Is L-O-V-E

Ia Ora Na to'u utuafare! Thanks so much for the emails!  It's so good to hear that you are all doing good and enjoying the snow!  And, yeah, President Sinjoux has already been here for his 3 years, but they extended it to July and that's when Bize will come in.  He's French, but I think he lives in the U.S. now.  With studies this year, I would think it's the same, but we teach a class for our investigators during sunday school.  For p-day, we went and sang on ville at papeete and got groceries.  After, we have a family home evening.  

I don't have time this week to write a lot, but I wanted to share a little story that happened yesterday.  Yesterday, priesthood was with the elders and the high priests, and the teacher asked the question, who is God?  And, people tried to answer for a half hour.  Then, he called on someone in the back.  I looked, and it was one of our investigators.  And, he said, "here," which is love in Tahititan.  To everyone else's anstonishment, that was the right answer haha!  Yeah Mohi!  I was so happy!  It's so simple!  A lot of times, we complicate things, but it's really simple.  In 1 John 4:8, I think, it says God is love.  It's one of my favorite scriptures!  That's really all that God asks of us.  If we have love for others and Dieu, we will automatically obey all of God's commandments.  Missionary work is a lot of work.  But, if you have love for the people, you do all your work because you love them and because you want to.  And, when you want to, it's not work at all.  And, it's the same with every thing we do.  Sorry, but I just have to end with, all you need is love.  Love is all you need!  Thanks so much for all you do!  Love you so much! Ua here au ia outou! Elder Jessop
