Hermit Crabs

Ahlan wisahlan! (Remember how I was studying Arabic before my mission?)
Short and sweet again: took the time to respond more individually to emails today (youre welcome, aita fifi) so lets get straight to the juice.
Thoughts and Things:
1. Got food poisoning two nights ago so spent the whole day yesterday (Pday, fortunately) trying to sleep and ended up watching French church videos. Found some treasures.
2. If anyone wants to gain a solid testimony that our Prophet Thomas S. Monson was called by God, watch "On the Lord's Errand" and you will know. Puissant.
3. I have a cool surprise that Im not sharing until it actually happens because I dont want to jinx anything. Clue: It has to do with me speaking French and Tahitian. :)
4. I realized you can make bite-size cheesecakes by dipping animal crackers (or cookies, your choice) in Laughing Cow cheese. My comp and I are slightly addicted. Good thing we run.
5. We have a baptism this Saturday for this adorable Mami Florida!!! She and her daughter will be baptized on the same day. She kind of looks like the mom of the main guy in Despicable Me. Shes fabulous and mainly speaks Tahitian.
6. One time after a lesson, the family pulled out a bucket of HUGE hermit crabs. HUGE claws. One of them lost its shell and next thing I know, the woman asked me to hold it, wriggling legs and all!!!! Pure terror. Voila les photos. :)
7. We go on safari-like drives sometimes to get to our lessons, this is a unique tree with upside down flowers.
8. I love missionary work.
No time for highlights this week, just hang in there. Everyone, enjoy school and work this week. Even when things are hard, just remember why you started it in the first place and NEVER lose sight of your goals and what matters most. I love you all!
love, Soeur Carter
