Music to my ears.

Happy Easter!

What an interesting week on my end. Glad to hear everything is stable. Looks like you had a fun Easter egg hunt! Fun fact, the word Easter comes from Eastre, a Norse goddess. Here pagan festival was celebrated at the Spring equinox (see Bible Dictionary: Easter).

The orchestra from BYU-Idaho was in town doing a tour, they arrived today, and we fed them dinner for service. One of the members in the orchestra served her mission in Elder Fontaine's home branch, and knows his family! Small world. Then we had Family Home Evening with Toshonna and Jermaine.

I was on exchanges with Elder Hansen, from Calgary! We were in the same mission prep. class, he was going to school in Edmonton. We sanded and painted a bathroom. We got so dusty, especially up in our noses. (so nice he put in this fine detail... ;)Then we cleaned up and fed the orchestra again, before they ran off to their performance. After that we had a great lesson with Bernard about the Law of Chastity. Good stuff!

Great district meeting in Laval. Then we had a busy day of teaching. We went over to Sasha's. He is the kindest person ever! He made us super good food.

Thursday I was on exchanges with Elder Smith! It was nice to see him again.

Lots of teaching today it was great!

We went to a baptism with Bernard. The man that was baptized is amazing! He bore his testimony at the end and it was so touching. He had truly been changed by the Gospel. Then we had a Stake Easter Concert. Surprise! I actually performed. I did a duet with some missionaries of a song entitled "Gethsemane". Then our ward put together an octet that I participated in. And, last but not least, we had a choir of all the full-time missionaries. I was conducting. It was amazing. The missionaries sang so well!

We had an encore performance in sacrament meeting of the duet and the octet. I was also asked to give a short talk, and Elder Fontaine as well. Made for a very musical meeting. Then we went to the Lungu's for Easter dinner. Easter is a big deal in Moldova, so we literally had a feast of eastern European food. It was delicious.

Hope you have a great week. We should coordinate with Jenna to be able to do Google Plus or something because we can conference call for free. Love you!
