Week 12 - Crazy Travel Week

This week was insane!!! After we emailed last week, we went to the church grounds and had a ping pong tournament and played a 4 on 4 game of football. We have Elder Condie as a ZL and he was the quarterback for American Fork and he was way good. After we went from Savusavu to Labasa on Monday night and then had train the trainers on Tuesday. It was way good. The main message for the trainees was to be a sponge and absorb all that we can from our trainers. After we went back to Savusavu so that we wouldn't have to wake up at2am to catch the bus to the ferry. We woke up at 5:30am in Savusavu and took the bus from there to the boat. :) 

We got back to Taveuni Wednesday and Elder Noble decided to wait until the next day to go back down to our area so that he could take one of the Somosomo elders on exchange. So I stayed in Somosomo and helped there. They have 2 golden investigators. One of them, his name is Timoci and they had given him a baptismal date for the 24th of this month but he came in and basically said I am ready right now can we move the date up. So he moved it up to this coming weekend. He his so good!!! Then right after that we went to go see a girl named Asinaca and she had written down all of the questions in the back of the pamphlets and answered them in 2 or 3 paragraphs!!!! Then she told us of an experience she had while she was praying at her house where she heard voices praying with her!!!! After seeing all of these investigators in Somosomo, it just makes me want to find people like that in Vuna!!!!! We have a couple but they are all scared to change because they are Catholic and all of their friends and almost everyone in the village is. It's hard but I bet once we get a couple of people more and more will follow.  

Well, glad to hear that everything is good back in the states. I still haven't seen conference. We have the CD's but they are in Fijian and even Elder Noble says that Fijian is hard to understand. I tried to watch the Saturday afternoon session but gave up because I was sick of hearing the same voice. The whole branch will watch it on November 1st because that is when we can get a TV and a generator to the chapel. Well, I hope all is going good, love hearing from you all and hope your week goes well!!!

On Friday, the school had a track and field day and all of the kids raced. It was cool to watch.

Beautiful pancakes with the mix mom sent and fresh bananas right off the tree. They were AMAZING!
