You wish you were here (Tavua Area, Week 6)

My new companion - only kidding!

 Here's a pictures of Gabe, cheekiest kid alive!


Another short one today, Elder Beilman and I have to catch a bus in a little under 30 minutes. Zone P-Day again, way excited! We have another Zone Training Meeting tomorrow, too!

Not too shabby of a week. It could've been a lot better, but it wasn't bad. We had three days where almost all of our appointments fell through. It was really sad and kind of discouraging. Just when I was in the lowest spot and it was 8pm and starting to rain, I decided to let go of myself. That was actually really easy to do. I just decided to rely on the Lord and go where He wanted me to go. We ended up being led to a wonderful family who, though aren't interested in the Church, we got to strengthen and draw closer together. It was really special! And I learned how to really, truly have faith in the Lord, which was probably the best part of the day.

But the best part of the week: WE GOT A BAPTISMAL DATE THIS WEEK. I'm so pumped! We weren't even planning on inviting her to be baptized, but she accepted so excited I could feel the Spirit so strongly! It was amazing! I love being a missionary and representative of Jesus Christ. This is His work, and this is His Church. I KNOW it. I LIVE it. I LOVE it.

Also, this lady came up to us this week and asked if she could lick us.

You wish you were here.

These are the missionaries in our District! 

A few highlights from our week...

We forded this river - it was way fun, but way slippery!

Rugby! Well, we were actually playing touch. It was way fun!

This is a picture of my casual sulu - sick, right? 
The ones I wear when I'm out of the flat are plain black, though.
