Hey-Ho, Nobody Home...

Wearing the funny teeth
This whole week was so-so.  Basically nobody was home.

My least favorite day of the week was Wednesday because I had a horrible headache, it lasted the whole day, so we stayed home.  Sis. Fonua actually took care of me and scolded me for not telling her sooner.

Now I have caught a cold, so I am dealing with that.  I am staying away from the shoes that caused my heel to bleed, which is almost healed up, but there is a nice little scar.

Our investigator Liz is 16, she goes to seminary and is just amazing!  She knows the church is true and reads and prays every day.  She is the perfect example of a golden investigator.

There were three things that made me laugh this week.  First, when Sis. Fonua threw the phone after we were called to speak in church on Sunday, which went well.  Second, I was trying to light the candle you sent me and kept burning myself, which I love by-the-way.  And third was on Friday for zone meeting we had 20 pizzas ordered and only three were left, so the next day we had pizza for dinner.  I thought I was going to be sick.

Favorite part of this past week was Saturday because so many unexpected things happened.  They we good unexpected things, such as a member taking us out for milk shakes.

Something that really touched me this week is the topic we were given to speak on in sacrament was the gift of the Holy Ghost.  You know me and writing, I ain’t good at it.  Surprisingly enough, the zone leaders spoke on the Holy Ghost during our zone training meeting which really helped me to know what to talk about.  So church yesterday was good except for me speaking.  I was lightheaded the whole time I was speaking.  Thankfully though, the spirit helped me speak slowly and clearly.  Everyone in the ward apparently thought it was a good talk.

Our plans for today are to go shopping.  After that, I don’t know what we will do.  We have interviews with the mission President this Wednesday.

I don’t think I need anything.

Here are a few pictures:

Mellow Week...

OK so sorry, I thought we wouldn’t be able to be on today.

Anyways, this week was pretty mellow.  Meet the Mormons was a great movie, I highly recommend it!

On Wednesday I was trying to rinse out containers a family used.  Well, their youngest daughter (age 5) wanted to help too, so she took the hose, and instead of spraying water on the containers, she got me!  It was pretty funny!

My least favorite part of last week was Thursday because while walking, one of my shoes decided to cut into the back of my ankle.  When I finally looked back, the whole back of my shoe was covered in blood…so that was fun.

My favorite part of this week was of course conference.  It answered questions I had long since forgotten, like I had had a question on how the whole picking the new prophet worked.  I was really touched when Elder Godyo spoke.  His comment on reading his patriarchal blessing and how he asked himself if he continued to do things he was currently doing, would it help him receive the promised blessings I have been asking myself that same question recently, so his talk really helped me to understand what I need to do.

One thing that was awesome this week was on Saturday, the young adult Kari that we had taught two lessons, was baptized during the break time between sessions of conference.  It was really awesome to see!

During the priesthood session of conference we got to go over to the mission home, have ice cream, and hand out.  When President Cannon came home we were all downstairs on the couch, so we decided to pretend we were sleeping on the couch.  When Pres. Cannon came down the stairs he saw us all sleeping and just stood there.  Then we all popped up and started laughing.  He looked relieved.

I haven’t received the package yet, hopefully this week I will.

This is probably the most I have ever written. Lol
