Nausori - Week 13

Onz tu mada ga


It's been a great week here in........Nausori!  Haha yeah I'm still here.  Looks like I'll have another transfer with Elder Lautogia, which I am way stoked about because we are seeing so much good in our area right now.  

Transfers were this week and we had a few changes in our zone.  Interestingly we now have two Fijian ward missionaries in our zone who will be serving this transfer because the mission is short on missionaries.  One of them is preparing to go on a mission and the other was serving in New Zealand until he had to come home for health problems.  We're way excited for both of them to help us out.

Man I am really excited for our area.  The past few weeks have been shaky but this week people started to turn around.  Liti has been doing awesome and has pretty much turned her life around these past two weeks.  She quit smoking and drinking tea and is really excited about being baptized in a few weeks time.  It is so cool to see how the gospel changes people!  Evia, the lady in the wheelchair, has also had quite a change of heart.  She was really skeptical of baptism before, but when we went over this week, she told us that while she was reading the Book of Mormon she had a feeling that she needed to be baptized!  We gave her a date, and now we are just trying to get all the logistics figured out (she hasn't left her house in over two years).  We are grateful that she could feel the sweet influence of the Spirit to prompt her to take that step in her life.  

Another investigator that we met a few weeks ago was Misiviliame.  He is an older man, very well educated, who has been around many different Christian denominations in his lifetime.  When we first met him, he told us he was impressed by the organization of the LDS church.  He said he could tell just by the way we looked that we meant business.  Well we taught him the message of the Restoration and he really liked it, but we could tell he had a lot of reservations about being baptized and joining, so we simply invited him to church.  Well were excited when he showed up with his friend Brother Biu!  He changed a lot during church and was very interested in everything afterward.  He even told one of the members in our ward that he wanted a calling!  Haha we are excited to say the least. 

That's all for this week, till next time.
