Pretty Cool ava ceremony

Malo Soifua Aiga!

A pretty eventful week, and yet not really haha. I guess I should give you an update eh? Here it is:
-On sunday there was only one priest at sacrament. It is Rugby World Cup season, and Manu just happened to be playing that morning…

Anyway they needed someone to bless the sacrament, so I went up and did it. It was a really cool experience because I have never had to do it out here before. Also cool because it was my first time doing it in Samoan :) 

-The Chorister's kids were being ulavale during the hymn. So she was kicking at them and conducting at the same time. She is like 65 and I don't know why but it was so funny to me haha. 

-We were at our fafaga, when all of the sudden, the family brought the phone in front of us, and the grandma of the family was Skype-ing us haha. It was really funny because it was just unexpected and she kept yelling into the phone. My companion and I were so awkward, we didn't know what to do, we just kind of gave it back to the family haha
we were just walking and saw this...pretty cool ava ceremony

-Work is fantastic! we have possibly 4 more bapis next month :) one of which is the husband of TIki Masina! IT would be so cool if they go to the temple next year

All is going well here, and it sounds like you are all doing well. So weird seeing those pictures... The King's kids are soo big! haha and tell Josh Lee Congrats!

I hope you all have a great week!

It doesn't really get much better than that

Malo Soifua Aiga!

Such an awesome week :) Seriously a had a lot of really cool experiences this week. Here is the update:

- My companion wanted to buy something in a little Chinese store this week. We went in and the lady tried to sell him the entire store…It was the funniest conversation ever because it was so FOB'd hahahaha Just awesome :)

- Our ward had a "Soul Rescue Program." It was really cool because we went through the ward list and marked all of the people who had moved or passed away. It was really neat to see the whole ward working together and I think that they are going to do it again.

-We had two amazing baptisms this week. They names are Fualole Tiki Masina and Fa'atea Masina. Such a cool story. She is a total Golden Investigator. She told me that when she finally read the Book Of Mormon, that she couldn't put it down, and that she finished it in 3 days. She wanted to wait to do her baptism until the 5th of September because it was her Birthday and she wanted to be re-born on her Birthday. Tiki has already read all of the Standard works and is extremely active in all of the activities. Her baptism was another highlight in my mission.

 She is an amputee and she always calls herself "The Flag Carrier" because her Wheelchair has the Church's name on it. When we tried to help her into the font she said that she wanted to do it. She scooted herself into the font, and burst into tears after the ordinance. Everyone at the baptism was really touched by the Spirit. 
After wards, My companion and I bought her a cake for her Birthday and she had the biggest grin on her face. :)
Tiki was waiting for me and my companion and I am so extremely grateful that I was able to be their :) Very similar feeling as the time of Avea's baptism. Just amazing. I will never forget this experience.

It doesn't really get much better than that. I am loving the work as well as my area :) Thank you all so much for the love and support and I hope you all have a great week :)
