currently enjoying quite a painful rash and body. So that's cool

Malo Soifua Aiga!

Well a pretty uneventful week. Honestly time just flew by on this one. But before I get into it I would like to wish my Dad a very Happy Birthday!!! I hope it is a good one :) 

Here is a very brief update:
-Apparently, after about a year the symptoms of chikungunya all come back....
So I am currently enjoying quite a painful rash and body. So that cool, but in a few months all have access to proper health care and no more mosquitoes so it's all good :)

-My companion and I made smoothies and we are very happy with ourselves.

That's really about it. Tomorrow we will have a conference with Elder D. Todd Christofferson, so we are all really excited. Regardless of my condition,

I'm going haha.

That's really it though. I hope you all have a great week.

Stay Classy,

Anytime I can find an excuse to wear my ie faitaga is a good thing.

Malo Soifua Aiga!

A very eventful week. So here is the update:
-Our baptism went through and it was awesome :) Her name is Iva and she is 17 years old. Anytime I can find an excuse to wear my ie faitaga is a good thing.

-We have a new investigator from New Zealand. His name is Ezekiel and he is Maori. Way cool guy and he already had the first four lessons done. We are planning on reviewing and finishing up his lessons this week and then we have planned for the 30th for his baptism :) He is such a stud!

-We went with Ezekiel to a devotional yesterday and the main speaker was the World renowned Heavy Weight Boxer Joseph Parker! He is L.D.S. and it was a really cool fireside. He is now ranked #3 in the world and has a fight this Saturday. 

-My companion and I got some pretty solid sapelu's (machetes) and were are very excited to start doing some extra service projects with them:)

Well that is all for the update :) It sounds like all is going well at home. I'm extremely jealous of the whole National Championship thing but it's all goods...I'll get over it....haha

I hope you all have a great week :)

I am no longer a teenager!

JANUARY 3, 2016

Malo Soifua Aiga!

Well an eventful yet uneventful week. So weird to think that I am no longer a teenager! Here is the update:

-I had a fantastic birthday! We had our normal proselyting but that night we went over to our family's house. They totally made me a bomb birthday cake and tons of Samoan food :) It was a birthday well-spent and I am so very grateful to be surrounded by such loving people who take good care of me. :)

One of my moms. Teuila Fitisimanu.

-I found a Katana (Samurai Sword). Just saying, pretty awesome haha.

-Baptisms didn't happen because we have to help one with an issue and the other got busy with work, so hopefully we will get one this week...I've learned that if I have a plan or a schedule set up I am 100x more effective.

-We got the flu this week, but are all goods now so don't worry, I used the pills that you had already sent. Comp and area are both solid.

That's it for this week. Pretty crazy knowing that I can say that I finish my mission this year...It has been an amazing ride and I look forward to finishing strong and making this a great year :) I love you all and hope you have a great week :)

Well really nothing to report because we all just talked. I have been thinking about is ASU. (Which I'm sure you are all happy to hear) Mom could you please look into school start date? The whole no shorts thing for BYU I is a huge turn-off haha

Anyways all is good here. We have 2 baptisms planned for this Saturday so hopefully it will all go through. They were the Sisters old investigators, which was really cool. I love you all and hope to get to chat pretty soon.

Sorry that it has taken so long to email today. All day we have been practicing to sing for Christmas Eve. We have a big part in the program for the Valu Aso Christmas program. Anyways I hope all is going well with all of you, here is the update:

-I ran into Lupa Apelu she is related to Naumu, Gladys's husband. It was funny because I was like, "oh I know Gladys  and Channy!" and she was really surprised haha Just goes to show that Samoa is such a small island haha.

-I will be calling home on the 26th here (Christmas day for you all). I'm pretty sure it is a 21-hour difference so I will try for like 10:30 or 11 here which is like 2ish there. So be expecting a call around then :) 

-last P-day we went and learned the process of making cocoa Samoa. It was really cool and afterwards we drank our own cocoa :) Enjoy the pics :)

All is going well here, really just very busy. But I am really looking forward to hearing from all of you :)
I hope you all have a great week :)
