Friends and family!
Well this week was pretty good! It was rainy pretty much everyday this
week but I will take it instead of snow! Haha well Monday for p day we
pretty much played basketball the whole time and we actually had interviews
that night! And for all you who are wondering how that happens if we
are on an island.... well we FaceTime president! Haha it takes some
getting used to but it's cool! They went really awesome!
This week we had tons of opportunities to help people move so we
worked off our dinners pretty well! It's funny because there's a lot
of people who aren't members but have our number laying around so if
they need something moved they give us a call! So it pretty useful
that we have a truck out here! Haha but it was great opportunity to
We did lots of dock tracting this week! Salmon season just ended so
all the big boats are in and they are working on them getting them
ready to go back out do some other kinds of fishing and crab! So we
got to talk to a bunch a people and even check out some big boats so
that was pretty cool! It's funny because the fisherman are some of the
roughest looking people but they are some of the nicest I've ever met!
We did some service on Saturday and helped the Rices patch a hole in
there bathroom under the electrical panel! We were there for dinner
Friday night and they asked if we had any experience doing drywall
because they needed help doing that in the bathroom. (They are a
really old couple). But I said I do a little and that we could do it!
So we did it and they were super impressed and said it looked awesome
and that it looked like I knew what I was doing! So that was a relief!
Haha (Thank you dad for teaching me! Little did I know those skills
would come in handy on the mission) then we moved some gravel for
them! Brother rice is the fire chief and so he took us over to help
him with something at the station and gave us a tour and showed us
everything on the trucks! I even got to sit in one! I felt like a kid
again! It was awesome! Haha
Liza is doing good! So she couldn't meet with us on our usual Thursday
appointment with her but she did some of the ARP book so that was
awesome! Saturday we got to see her for a minute and see how she's
doing and she's doing good! Her friend was there and she loved us
coming to see her and thought it was awesome we were helping her
overcome her addiction! So we got the friends approval so that's
good!! Haha and Malinda we didn't get to have a lesson! She was busy
all week with different things but we have an appointment Wednesday so
On Sunday, Farani (our only Samoan investigator) came to church for
the first time ever so that was really awesome! He really liked it and
so hopefully we can have an awesome lesson with him this week!
During my studies on Sunday morning I came across this awesome line in
Alma 37:46 and thought it was so awesome and that I should share it
with you all,
"The way is prepared, and if we will look we may live forever"
Well that was my week in a nutshell! I hope you all had a great week
and I'm glad we made it through elections!
