Malo Soifua Aiga,
Sorry really not too much to report. All is going well here.
My last companion Elder Tafeaga, is done. My new comp's nae is Elder Kaiso from Sataoa, Upolu.
We now cover the Magiagi ward as well, so I have covered every ward in this Stake except for Vailele.
I am officially the king of The Apia Samoa Stake haha. I know that saying goodbyes next week is going to be really hard. I have been in this area for 7 months now.. crazy.
That's exciting for Thayne, tell him congrats. And yes I have been giving a bunch of stuff away.
I am excited to see you all. Next week is my last P-day. Pretty trippy really.
Anyways I love you all and hope you all have a good week :)

Malo Soifua Aiga!
Its short today sorry but here is the update:
-My companion Elder Tafeaga finishes his mission this thursday so he is really happy. My new comp comes here wednesday. His name is Elder Kaiso. But I will be finishing here in Navu so I'm stoked.
-Tiki Masina (my recent convert from Matautu) passed away this last week. I just found out yesterday and honestly took it pretty hard. She really made my time in Matautu probably my favorite time of my mission. She was an amazing woman with an amazing story. I feel very strongly that she was one who was prepared for me and working with her was a major part of my conversion process. I am so very grateful for this Gospel and for the Plan of Salvation. While it was hard, I still know that she is in a good place. Please pray for her family.
-Logo (a guy in our ward who we do splits with) just got his call to Wellington, New Zealand Mission Samoan speaking. It was such a cool and spiritual experience to go and watch this young man open his call. A great reminder of the joy and honor of serving a mission :)
I hope all is well back home. Congrats to Kenna, Tyson, Joseph, Sam and all others graduating. That is exciting :) I love you all and I'll see you soon.
Malo Soifua Aiga!
A pretty good week overall. Here is the update:
-Our baptism went through which we were excited for. Her name is Gloria Nimarota and she is 16 years old. I attached a pic so enjoy :)
-It turns out no ring worm at all. It was called Urticaria, and it was a topical allergy. Thats why the anti-fungals weren't working. I got the help that I needed and am now quite healthy and happy to be rid of it :)
-It can be hard some days to be honest. I think that I am considerably more learned in the gospel and definitely converted.
-My companion goes home next week, so I am just waiting to see who will be my last companion.
I'm stoked to have gotten the flight plans and am looking forward to the trip to Utah :)
Send my love to Will and Kenna and I hope you all have a great week :)
