I can't believe it's been 10 weeks since I've gotten to Fiji - 16 since leaving home! The time is flying so fast. I wish it would slow down a little.
Except that my body actually hated me this week.
We went down to Lautoka for Zone P-Day last week - that was the most fun I've had in a long time! We played touch-Rugby in the pouring rain. So fun! We got absolutely soaked, and my District wrecked! And none of us play Rugby!
We had Zone Conference on Tuesday in Nadi - boy, that was amazing. President Layton came to speak to us. As my companion says, "That man is on a different spiritual level." Dina sara ga. I learned so much about becoming a successful missionary, I hope I can apply it all! We each had an interview with President, too - one on one. That was a wonderful experience, too.
Then began the part where my body hated me. From Monday on, I started developing some rash on my hand and knee. At first, I didn't think anything of it. Then it started spreading. And it itched like crazy. I asked the mission nurse what it was, and she didn't know! No one seemed to know! The rash started blistering with pimples, kind of like what happens when you get Poison Ivy really bad. Except
We had a baptism planned for this week, but the person isn't quite ready yet. Maybe in a few weeks. Two of our investigators lost interest in the Church, and we had so many fall-throughs this week. It was way disappointing. But Elder Beilman and I aren't giving up.
Love you all! Au lomani kemudou kece!
There is beauty all around-
Especially in Fiji
