Week #55 - Christmas, Bad News & the best news!

Sooooo my companion is out :( Elder Pututau is getting transferred and we are pretty surprised by that and we both were like dang it's not gonna be the same with any other companion because we were tight haha. It was awesome serving with another Polynesian.

It was amazing seeing and talking to a bunch of you guys on Christmas. It was literally the best day of my life hahah CONGRATULATIONS TO MY MOM SHE IS ENGAGED!!!!! OH ITS THE BEST THING OF MY LIFE, I CANT EVEN EXPRESS THE SUPREME JOY. CONGRATULATIONS TO MY BRO WHO GOT ENGAGED AS WELL AND IM GOING TO HAVE ANOTHER NEPHEW!!! Such an amazing blessing to see so much joy and love this wonderful season. I don't really know what to say just so much going on and we have a lot of finding to do in order to have baptisms monthly.

But any questions just let me know, as well thank you for all the gifts it made me so happy for all you have done for me and the love you show. I couldn't be more happy with my life right now, only hope that the trunkiness passes soon because it's been hard to focus. 

But guys I really really miss you, and let the countdown begin til I'm home ;)

Week #53 - 1 Year mark!!!

Hey fam and friends!!

I miss snow... That's the only negative that's gonna be in this email bahah well this week has been intense, we found six new really awesome people to teach this week and they have some awesome questions. We have 3 baptisms this week in our area, 4 in the zone and hopefully 4 next week. We are so pumped!! The zone is just really doing awesome and we hope that they can really put in work this week, especially with the holiday season next week, it's gonna be a little difficult. I can't wait to call some of you on CHRISTMAS!! Can you believe it's that time of year already?!? It is definitely not the same out here, but it's nice to be able to see lights and trees. I hope everything is going great for everyone back home, and I hope to send some gifts home if I get a chance, it's just hard in the field haha especially because we are sooooo busy.

Oh also met a guy named John that has been traveling the east of the Appalachians for ten years! He feels like God has been speaking to him and he started reading the Book of Mormon and really loves it. We talked to him about being baptized and he said he would but he travels too much, he was awesome and for some reason I felt really connected to him. I hope to see him again on the other side of the veil but he literally reminded me of forest gump.

But I love you guys, can't wait to hear back and thank you for all the happy birthday letters/emails!!!
