September 13, 2016 - Week 22

Hello Family and Friends!

We had a super good week this week! On Wednesday the YSA Elders had a baptism for Terrance and because I interviewed him we got to go. We also brought our investigator Donna to get her excited to be baptized herself. 

Then on Saturday E' Toupo was baptized. It was so cool to see all of his family come out to the baptism and his Father who hasn't been to church in years came to watch him be confirmed. Toupo's Grandpa said he saw him cry so we are getting pretty psyced for him to get back into activity. He did the first part of the confirmation prayer in English until after he said "recieve the Holy Ghost" then he did the rest of it in Samoan. It was pretty awesome!

This week week we have also been meeting with a guy named Don. He is SDA (seventh Day Adventist) but he loves reading the Book of Mormon with us so we are getting closer and closer to teaching him the discussions.

This week we found a Part Member Family that loves to give us eggs for free. The husband is the non-member because his Mom asked him not to. We will just have to keep being good friends with him until she is de... a  person who changes her mind.

So now that I am a District Leader I am way more involved in the numbers side of everything and this week our District as a whole improved so much! It was so awesome.

I love being on a mission! During the baptism while E' Toupo and his Grandpa were changing, me and Elder Snelgrove did the "half-time show" and bore our testimonies on how the Gospel of Jesus Christ can change peoples lives. I love being able to watch as those I teach grow and change and become better people through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I love it so much! 

Well that is about it for this week, Love you all!!
