Back to the MRC!😔

Malo Lava Soifua! 

Well This week has been pretty good! Sadly this week on Tuesday I started to have the symptoms of chicken kunea come back so the nurse here and President and Sister Hanneman told me to stay down most of the week so well thats basically my week!

We had an island conference this week and so that was cool! One of the really cool things we are doing is the missionaries on the island of Upolu are going to be singing to the Prime Minister of Samoa on December 24th so that will be really awesome! 

At that zone conference I learned a lot of cool things and one of them was about prayer and not using repetion! And President related it to emailing our families! If we just pray the same thing every morning and night to our heavenly father it is like emailing our families the same thing every night so that was something that really got me thinking about my prayers and how I can make it more meaningful! 

President also announced that they are opening up most of the smaller Samoan islands also like Tokilau and Manua and Manono so there is always a possiblility of going to one of those islands and being the only missionaries on the whole island so thats way cool! 

So... In my new area we are really in the outback of samoa and have water tanks that we run off and we ran out so we had to go shower at this members house down the street and let me tell ya! that was a different experience! haha so basically their shower was right on the road and it was a faucet that came out of the ground and there was a big bucket and a little bowl and you fill up the bucket and then you basically just use the little bowl the dump the water on you and you do this wearing nothing but a lavalava while all the little samoan kids watch and laugh! haha! it was a great experience! 

My language is coming! While Elder Anderson was showering I was talking to this old man and I was actually conversating with him and understood everything he said so it was really awesome! So I guess you can say Im already fluent! haha just kidding! 

Well thats kinda it this week! Just a lot of resting so I can go 100% in the lords work so yea! I cant wait to find teach and baptize again! haha I love and miss you guys! 

Love, Elder Fawson

Happy Halloween!!

Malo lava!

Well this week was crazy! I was in the MRC (Missionary Recovery Center) all week and last monday the doctor said I would need to stay down and rest all week so President decided to put Elder Kaiso in a new area so I lost him this week and all week I had no idea who my new comp would be and if I would be in a new area! Luckily there was 3 of us that were sick all week so we just kinda were eachothers companions and we just talked all day haha! On Saturday president Hannemann came in and we are all starting to feel better and he asked if we were ready to get transferred and we were like uhhhhhh.. We were just transferred! But He met with each of us and I thought I would be going back to my area just with a new comp but He told me I was going to Lotofaga fou which is way backside backwoods samoa and it is soooo awesome and beautiful back here! And Best of all! My new Comp is sooo awesome! His name is Elder Anderson from Oregon! He loves basketball and the NBA so we get along so well and there is never a dull moment! 

My new area is HUGE! luckily we have bikes but it is big and lots of big hills haha! The really cool thing is there is a beach  and ocean in our area so thats really cool! and there is also a resort haha! 

One of the really cool things about being in the MRC all week was I got to know President and Sister Hannemann really well and they are awesome people! They truely do love the work and are so excited to be here and help us bring others unto Christ! 

Well I was in the MRC all week so there wasnt really many adventures or anything like that but I am feeling lots better and I am ready to work hard again with Elder Anderson! It is so crazy to me that it is already November! I feel like it was just the blink of an eye ago it was June 17th! It seriously blows my mind anytime I think about it!

Well I love you guys and think about you soooo much and pray for each and every one of you! REMEMBER: When in doubt, Pray it out! I love you guys! 

Love, Elder Fawson
