I'm healthy and happy

Malo Soifua Aiga,

Don't be mad but very short email this week. Nothing really happened. 
My comp got sick and we stayed in basically the entire week.....
And there is the update haha. 

Naw, things are going really well here. I work primarily with less-actives, but we are starting to get some new investigators. My comp and my district are really cool.

It is weird speaking in English, but some visits I do. But I am still working on my Samoan, so don't worry :)

I'm healthy and happy.

I hope you all have a great week and know that I'm praying for you all!

Dearly Loved

Malo Soifua Aiga!

Well, I'm going to first apologize because this week didn't have as
many interesting stories. I am happy to here your update however.

Thayne HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! I hope it's a good one sole. I'm going to try and send your gift this week. 

Also tell Mckenna congrats! That's very exciting. 

Savaii was a completely different island. I'm really enjoying Tutuila though. It has kind of an American feel about it that is just different than what I have been used to. 

I went on an exchange this week to Leone. We climbed a mountain for a visit. Nice view :)

The work has been different as well. 44% of our members came to church the other day, and that was
240 people...Needless to say a huge ward, but I work mainly with less-actives. It has been nice though with the ward support. The members that are strong, are really strong.

The funny story this week happened yesterday in church. A sister was giving her talk, and then decided to do a hymn in the middle of it. Her voice cracked every time she sang the chorus and it was one of the
funniest things ever...She was even laughing which made it ten times better hahaha.

Shout out to my boy Hunter! Soon to be Elder Jensen. You are going to do awesome in Australia man!

Thank you all for the update. I keep you all in my prayers, and want
you to know that you are all very dearly loved :)

I hope you all have a great week!

I have officially met the Devil- Her name is Honey

Malo Soifua Aiga!

Air view of Tutuila

Well it was a pretty good week this week. Happy (belated) Easter to everyone back home! Here is my weekly update:
-General Conference was an adventure. Luckily I got to watch it this time in English and it was streamed live. Only issue was we have a 4-hour time difference here so we watched it at 5 in the morning...Needless to say I was pretty tired, but it was a great General conference :)

-I have officially met the Devil in the form of a dog. Her name is Honey, and she is the exact opposite. This is the dog that bit me, and almost got my hand this week...I was telling a family about it and they were laughing so hard haha. I said, "Sese lana igoa. Ua ia le suamalie!" (Wrong name, she isn't sweet) 

-We got to do a Family Home Evening last week with some recent converts which was cool. I decided to use my uke and we played some church songs and told riddles which they really enjoyed :)
I don't know who all got the chance to watch conference, but the two talks I like the most were Dale G Renlund's amd Elder Jeffrey R. Holland's. 

From Brother Renlund's I liked the quotes, "a saint is a sinner that keeps trying." and "I don't shame to tell you what I was, because so sweet is my change." 

Some people say that people never truly change. That just simply isn't true. We all have the potential to change for the better. We are all prone to certain sins, and will occasionally make the same mistakes. 

However, as we can be assured of the full and magnificent power of the Atonement. We just all need to continue to keep trying.

I hope you all have a great week this week! 
Alofa tele atu outou!
