Malo Soifua Aiga!
A pretty up-and-down week, but it was good over all. First I want to wish a happy belated Birthday to Josiah! I love you man and look forward to seeing you again soon.
I say soon because the mission is flying by!
Here is the weekly update:
-We had a giant conference on Thursday and we all said goodbye to the Tolman's. They are going to be dearly missed, and I hope if you get the chance you can go here them speak. They live in Mesa, and they will be talking on August 30th.
-Elder Saunders is our new Mission President.
-The work is going really well. We have a baptism this next week, and two more planned for the following. :)
Apia Park-This is were they All-Blacks and Manu Samoa played last month. It was a historic game, and we got permission to watch it :)
-We had stake Conference this week and Elder Johansen of the Seventy came. He gave some great talks and was very powerful. On Saturday they asked for the Zone Leaders to prepare a 5 minute talk in Samoan prior to his talk on Sunday. I told them that they were in Falefa (pretty far away) and then they said that because I was the District Leader that I needed to replace them... Needless to say I was freaking out. I prepared the talk the entire night (the topic :bravery…the irony…) but then I was told Sunday morning that President Jessop, the Temple President, had taken my place.
So I almost opened for a Seventy haha.
All is going well here.I love the work,and I love you all!
