Le lava

Lo'u aiga peleina,

Good week this week!! We got out and about and I was even off my crutches for a full 48 hours... and then I fell of the sidewalk and rolled my ankle... the same ankle... we were about a block from the car and we were trying to hop back to it when Elder Van Theil (zone leader) and Elder Barbosa drove by and saw us struggling. We asked them to go grab my crutch from the car but they did one better and just brought the car to me. I was given strict instructions to go home and rest... again... sigh. 

The ward was worried as about me when they saw me on Sunday STILL on my crutches. Everyone kept coming up to me and telling me to go to their house after our fafaga so that they could Fofo (Samoan form of healing, sometimes like a massage...) it. But I had heard stories about fofo for sprained ankles and that they were extremely painful... that's why I didn't let someone do it last week. But this week, we went over to Mauli'o's house and got a fofo... I had heard stories that people use their heels to fofo sprained ankles and push so hard on the ankle in order to pop it back into place and that people just bawl their eyes out... but Brother Mauli'o was very careful and used his hands!! WHEW!! He popped it back into place and the swelling has gone down heaps!! So we will go back and get one more tonight. :)

We got 5 new investigators this week!!! Mark we just taught the restoration!! He is 16 and Methodist, teaching him was a crack up because he couldn't understand my accent!! I would say something, and he wouldn't understand, then Sister Seiuli would say THE EXACT SAME THING and he would understand!! We were laughing so hard about it later!!!

London is 14 she lives in a foster home with social workers... she is allowed to visit our ward mission leaders house (her grandparents) for a few hours every Tuesday, we explained a little about who we were and what our message is and she wanted us to come back this week and share it with her!! She is a sweet heart!! :)

I think that's about it!!
Thank you so much for your love and prayers!!
Miracles happen every day!!
Alofa tele atu,
Sista Peo
