Second i want to say thanks for all the letters i got this week they were all really great letters. THanks
This week i took notes in my planner about what to write home so i will follow that.
One of the two villages that i work in is called Fatai, and there is a Sister missionary from Fatai who served in Tonga. She finished last Monday, transfer day. her name is Sister Paongo she was in our Zone and i knew her while she was serving here in Tonga. Let me put this into perspective, her last area was Ha'ateiho, and she is from Fatai. Which is the equivalent to Downey and Hunington Park, she served in the same Zone as that covers her village. This is very common in TOnga and one of the Things that makes it kehe kehe. Any ways it was Fast sunday and she bore her testimony and wow it was really Spiritual all of sunday was really awesome and Spiritual. There was tokolahi (many people) in Church in Fatai the most since i;ve been here, i counted 58 it was because there was two babies being blessed. It was a great meeting. After Church in Fatai we came back to Nukunuku and wow there was a took si'i aupito, super small amount of people. the smallest its been, from one extreme to another. The primary did a program where they had all the kids bear testimonies in different languages, The bishops daughter had spanish Thanks a lot Mom for your testimony. after they were all done i got up and I bore my testimony in English it was kinda different but i am really happy that was
We have been teaching a family in Fatai where the dad is already baptized and even served a mission but fell away from the Church and now wants to come back. He still has a testimony and he wants his wife and kids to have the Gospel. We also have started teaching a woman named Laise her daughter was baptized in 2009 and really strong, and now she wants the know the Gospel. We taught her the first lesson yesterday and it was really good, followed the Spirit and everything. these are the oldest people i have taught so far.
oh okay Mom which Elder Lester is serving in Brisbine because i met an Elder here, Elder Vakameilalo he is going to serve in the Brisbine mission as soon as he gets his Visa. i told him about Elder Lester.
Well thats about al for this week. Sorry this is short compared to my other emails. Love you all a lot. Thanks for all the prayers and support.
Happy birthday again to Dad tomorrow. Hope you have a great day!!

Oh Dad I saw an Oshkosh shirt here on some little kid the other day. It was really funny. A lot of the clothing out here is from D I. You see all these BYU shirts on non-members. I saw a shirt on some lady a while back that said "Draper Pool and Recreational center" kinda random.
Oh did you get my snail mail letter??
