Samabula - Week 18

Ni varorogo tiko mai


So this has been a pretty good week.  Incredibly, everyone in Fiji is talking about Donald Trump!  I have heard the craziest things about him from all the Fijians; they're probably true haha.

We had a baptism this week!  James, or actually Jungmin, got baptized on Sunday before church and then confirmed in sacrament meeting.  It was really good!  He seemed super happy.  His sister also got baptized whom the sisters have been teaching.  We are hoping that their mom will choose to follow their example and be baptized in the future!

We found out that Lesi had a family event down in Navua during the weekend, so we decided to push the baptism back a week.  She seems to be doing really well!  Her sister-in-law, Lia, is a member who has been deciding to come back to church recently.  It's been a lot of fun working with them.

I went on a few exchanges this week.  The first one was with Elder Carlson, my old comp back in Navua.  He is in Naitasiri, this area in the interior of Viti Levu.  We were proselyting in some pretty legit villages where missionaries are not allowed to knock on doors because of the cultural rules.  They have to work a lot with referrals.  One village we had to cross this river in a little canoe to get to.  It was pretty cool.  Then on Saturday I had an exchange with Elder Bowen from SLC.  He is pretty new in the mission, about 2 months in Fiji, so it was a lot of fun working with him and his "greenie fire".  We had a way good day proselyting here in Samabula.
