okaoka auleaga lo'u seevae

Lo'u aiga,

The struggle was real health wise this week!!!
Sister Taugaele was recovering from her flu for the first half and the second half I was having foot problems!! I guess we just walk heaps and my shoes just got all worn out! It was causing me quiet a bit of pain! I was expecting it to be something much worse than an old pair of shoes as the cause for all of my discomfort but there we go!! So now I have had to switch to my ugly shoes... :(
I have only worn them for I think 6 days in my entire mission... and I think 3 of those days were in the MTC... oh ugly shoes.... why are you so durable? 😝

Despite being stuck at the flat for so long this week, we still managed to get some good work in with the investigators we have!! 
Tilomai is killing it getting ready for her baptism on the 17!
We taught Iona the gospel of Jesus Christ, Word of Wisdom, and Law of Chastity!! He came to church yesterday a different person!! He was happy and laughing (normally he just sits around and doesnt have much facial expression) and participating in class!! We were shocked!! And he came up to us after class and told us he wanted to be baptized on the 17th!! Okay then!!
So now we have two people preparing for the 17th!! We are so excited!!

We have to get the program all planned out, and invitations for the missionary activity all passed out this week!! Hopefully we will not be stuck in the flat like last week!!!

Beverly and Napoleon came to games but no one talked to them and they only let Napoleon play volleyball once but he didn't touch the ball... *sigh*. People just get crazy into volleyball...
We are still working with the ward on learning how to  fellowship 😝
They said they didn't want to come this week... we will see if we can bring some people to their house and meet them... get them some friends!!

I was going to write that its finally getting warm outside but then all of a sudden a torrential downpour just started.... oh New Zealand... I honestly have never seen more rainbows in my life than I have in this time on my mission!! Probably because the people here need that reminder of God's covenant with Moses (edit from Mom: I think she meant Noah) that he will never flood the world again... some of these rainstorms it sure seems like we are going to have flood part 2!! BAHAHA!!!

Oh speaking or natural disasters, was there an earthquake? I had no idea! We didnt notice anything! No one has said anything to us about it either, so weird!!

I hope everyone is doing all right! Granddad I love you so much! You are in my prayers!!!
I know Heavenly Father knows all of us, he knows exactly what we are all going through. We are in his hands, we just have to trust that he knows the best thing to do!!

Alofa tele atu!
Manuia le vaiaso!!
Sista Peo

All of my books!
Me and Taugaele being silly
Me being sad wearing my ugly shoes...
How long my hair is now
