Happy 4th of July! This week has been pretty crazy! Sunday was the best experience of my life! I shook Elder Russel M Nelsons hand and said said hello to Elder David A Bednar and President Uchtdorf! And the best thing about it all was being within feet of the prophet! I know this church is true just by standing by him! He has the strongest spirit and you can probably feel it a mile away!
My companions and I got called to be the zone leaders so that pretty awesome! We just got 13 new missionaries in our zone that are going to Fiji so now there is 22 Elders and 10 Sisters in our zone! Its filling up quick!
Its fun to see new missionaries every Wednesday because it makes me feel like Im so cool cuz Ive been here for longer haha!
At our Tuesday Devotional, Elder Sitati of the Seventy spoke to us and talked about the trials we all are facing and will face in the field and how to get through them. He said how we need to go out with courage because we have all been called of God to go do the work and it motivated me so much just to go out to Samoa already! Every night my companions and I just talk about how badly we want to just go out and we also talk about how we are going to wash our clothes in buckets haha!
MTC basketball is still the best thing ever! We always have gym before or after lunch and It is my second favorite part of the day!... Behind going to bed! haha! My Samoan district is so awesome and I know that Heavenly Father wanted us all together for a reason! And I love my companions! They honestly make me a better missionary each and every day!
For the 4th we get to go out till the field and stay out there till like 11:30 to watch the fireworks so that was pretty cool news!
This week has been awesome too because we are now teaching are "investigator" in Samoan with no notes or anything! The gift of tongues is so real and there is no way we would all learn this language this fast without it!
We will be leaving on the 25th of July now so in 22 days!!!
Thank you all for your support and everything you have all done for me! I miss and love you all!
