Family friends and all!
what a week. we got to go to the temple!!!!!!!!!! WE ARE SO LUCKY! The temple is the best place on earth! it was a much needed day of rest and spiritual fulfillment. sheesh its awesome! then JOHNNY! wahooo!!!!! What a treat. We had a great lunch at Old Fishermans Grotto. It was SO FUN! IT was great to hear about the family and it sounds like all is going well. There is nothing better than family! Don't worry I didn't get homesick, but its weird to think the next time ill see you all is in a short 13 months. time is going too fast ah!
We picked up a new investigator family so that is super exciting! They are totally prepared. Sadly we don't have like 20 baptismal dates like thomas but we are still working hard. They gave us the grossest food on earth though. seriously i still cant get the taste out of my mouth SO YUCKY. it was like this frozen mango thing smothered in chili gross tomato awful sauce, EW. but oh well haha. we tried our best to eat it and then took it to go.
We had our luau this week! Someone counted 600 people there. YES 600!!!!!!! Can you believe that? We are the best event planners on earth. haha it was such a success i wish i could send you the videos but they are too large. pictures are coming though. tons of nonmembers. we would be lost with out the wards support though. because of them and their hard work it came together and was THE BOMB. seriously i havent had so much fun in a long time i wish you could see all the videos and everything haha. So that day we were called and said we had a 911 service project and so we went over. turned out it was just someone putting a fundraiser together and needed help with decorations. hahahha same day as the luau. they were complaining about how theyve been planning this event for 350 since jan. i was like weve been planning an event for 350 for a month and its in a few hours come help us! but oh well. we did and had a great time. we learned that elder fakavas nickname is tickle me tongan in the mission hahahahaha
This week at the wharf i stepped in dog poop and as soon as i did i just started rhyming: there is poo on my shoe what do i do? ive been saying it ever since haha
CONFERENCE WAS THE BEST!!! Elder Hollands talk- i cried through the whole thing it was so awesome. All of it was SO GREAT. Sheesh we are so blessed to hear from a living prophet. i love being a missionary! life is great and the Gospel is true!
This week we were trying to find someone named Bianey and her sister opened the door and i was like hey is beyonce there? she was like what?? beyonce?? hahahahaha it was hysterical. i do the stupidest things sometimes.
HAPPY 25th WEDDING ANNIVERSARY TO THE TWO BEST PARENTS IN THE WORLD!!! 2 kids on missions and one tough football/hockey/lacrosse boy! obviously they did a good job. I love you so much!! YOU ARE THE BEST PARENTS I brag about you everyday! Keep up the good work. wish we could all be together but its more fun this way right?!
