Week 54

Another week here on the mission and I couldn't be any happier. It sounds like you had a good time at Elder Ngatuvai's homecoming. By the way mom the mission Motto is " We Are grateful to be in the Hawaii Honolulu Mission. The Aloha mission. The atonement of Jesus Christ is our message love of God and others is our motivation and obedience to the commandments and mission rules is our strength. By sharing the Gospel with others we can give them the HA the breath of life even Eternal Life A-L-O-H-A!

So life on the misson is good. Our teaching pool is a little low right now but we are going to try and find a few new people to teach this week. Elder Wootton and I are getting along great. He is an awesome kid and we have a lot of fun playing tennis together. I have missed playing so much. Oh big news with us is that we had to move this week. Our land lords are moving back to Utah so we had to move to the place where the other elders used to live. It is pretty new but they didn't take very good care of it. Elder Wootton and I had to spend a whole day cleaning it so that was not very fun. We were sad to leave because we really enjoyed staying with them. This new place is good though because we live with a part Tongan part Samoan family. We live on a street calle Iosepa so you can look that up if you want.

Oh the mission tour was cool. It was Elder Johnson of the Seventy. A british guy. It was really neat. The best part is I got to see a lot of my mission friends like Nau and Doane and Sister Fiavokiamoana. I really enjoyed it. Well I love you all so much.

Week 53

This week was a pretty exciting week. We had lots of stuff going on and once again tons of meetings to go to. We were able to have a baptism on Saturday and it was really amazing. I had the privalige of baptizing him and I was so grateful to have the oportunity to do it. Drew is an awesome kid and I will definitely stay in contact with him for the rest of my life. I am just so grateful for all of the amazing experiences I am having on my mission and know that I couldn't be having them anywhere else. I know if I hadn't come on my mission I would have regreted it for the rest of my life. It is just so amazing to see so many people make life changing decisions for the better. I see these people we help and they are so much happier and are so positive about life.

Well Elder Wootton and I are doing great. He is a really awesome kid and we have a lot in common. All except for the fact that he is a hard core BYU fan. But I catch him humming the Utah fight song every now and again thanks to my alarm clock.( Thank you maddie) We love playing tennis together and we are both on about the same skill level wich makes it even better. It is awesome we came out in the same transfer so we will be going home together. I hope we get to stay with him a couple of transfers but who knows.
Well other big news for the week is that we got a new car. It is SWEEET. It drives really smooth. Its a 2009 corolla so not much change and I still don't fit very well but it is a really nice car. We also got a new phone this week. My comp had our old one in his pocket when we were playing frisbee one morning and landed right on top of it and broke it in half. It was kind of funny actually. So they sent us a new one and we got it the next day. Other latest news is that we will be moving this week. We have to move into the other elders old apartment.
