FA'ANOANOA

Friends, family, loved ones,

I bear sad news... *sob*

Sister Taituuga and I... Are fighting a noble battle. Spiritually.. yes! But also physically. You see... I have.. FLEAS!!!!!!!!!!
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Those itchy bumps were flea bites. We are out for blood! MAN! I HATE FLEAS!!! Sister Taituuga only has like one bite on her whole body... I HAVE THEM EVERYWHERE!!! GAAAAHHH!!!! It's okay though!! We are going to get some poison and put it all over everything! Should be fun!! ;)

THIS WEEK WAS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE COOLEST THING HAPPENED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So our companionship goal for this transfer is a baptism!! We have been talking A LOT about baptism in district meetings and zone meeting because the baptism numbers for the mission are SOOOOOOOOOOOO LOW :( Our district leader challenged us to pray about things we can specifically do to progress our investigators for baptism! I was doing that Thursday morning when I received revelation that IF I did everything i needed to do (Sister Taituuga and i had just been discussing things i could improve on in lessons) in the lesson and continued to do my absolute best, we would have a set by District meeting on Tuesday!! WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????????????!!!!!!!! 
We fasted on Friday!! And on Saturday our district leader called and said that they ran into the Esekia family in our ward and they had someone for us to baptize. We thought he was kidding, but went over anyway! HE WAS SERIOUS!! Her niece is 10, her name is Caroline and her mom is less active but asked Sister Esekia if she could get the missionaries to give lessons to Caroline and baptize her!! WHAAAAT!?! Caroline has been going to church with Sister Esekia!! We taught her the first lesson yesterday and SET her for the 28th of November!! Her mom is okay with that date and we meet with her again on Wednesday!!!!! So good!!

I know that Heavenly Father love us. He knows exactly what we are going through and how to help us. He has so many blessings to give us if we will only ask him, and be willing to work!
I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH!! Serve the lord and receive your miracles!!! ... and fight the fleas 🔨 (pretend this hammer is a sword)

ALofa tele atu!!!
Sista Peo

(Fa'anoanoa means sad)
(I am sad about the fleas not about the baptism ;))


Do you think Alma and Amulek had fleas when they suffered all manner of afflictions?? If so that alone qualifies them for the celestial kingdom in my opinion ;)
