Week 48 Less Actives

Week 48

In Seth's wildest dreams!
Good Food 

Hello again friends. This week has been another great one. Earlier this week it rained randomly on Tuesday pretty hard, but the next day it got really hot. We got a lesson in the morning to one of our investigators with a baptismal date. He's actually one of the sons of
the couple that we baptized, so the parents were really happy now that we have a set date/ so after that we went home and cooled off, later in the afternoon we went back out our far area. So we got to walk to our far area looking for some less actives. WE walked pretty far for nothing we found a less active but were unable to teach. But it was not all in vain... we got in a good exercise and got to cross some really beautiful terrain so it was really good sight seeing. I crossed 2 bridges and was pretty tempted to go down to and just jump in the
water and cool off because it was so hot. So we walked all the way to the end of our area and turned around and walked in the other direction basically to the other end of  our area. We taught a less active who has been less active for about 10 years she said and now we are really good friends with her, we just talked about our families and where we are from so we are friends now. Anyways that was a good time because she said shes been gone for a long time from the church she likes how she is learning everything again, so we went to her twice this week. Sometimes just reaching out and sharing with familiar things helps.  We also went to our other less actives and their families. we are starting to read the Book of Mormon with them or Ang Aklat ni Mormon everytime we visit. And they are always fun they give us a little snack usually and we just talk about home and their day. Thats my favorite just talking to people about their lives and their days.. basically just being normal and having a good laugh. We also taught some new investigators this week. One is a son of a mother who is about 17 but unlike a normal 17 year old he gives really good answers when we talk to him about the church and its good that he's been coming to church but just hasn't been baptized.  We are also teaching his sister .. shes really good and has a really solid Christian background.  That helps a lot, at times we talk about prophets, apostles gods power and sometimes people don't have any idea what we are talking so we have to break down the lessons more and more. But we were lucky the one day we walked back  home a member saw us and told us to come to their house and they said they would feed us and he ended up giving me a pretty good pair of pants so that was nice... I guess its just blessings from God. We located  another less active and found out he's from BUHI my second area which is like one of my favorite areas and we were able to talk about the town and the area and I guess that was good for him  because he hasn't been there in a while. So  we got new elders in the district, my favorite is Elder Kaumaitototya. He's a pretty big Fijan. Now we got a Tongan, Samoan, Kiribati and a Fijian. Elders from around the world! He is a cool thing  I ate 2 chicken heads. It wasn't that bad until I tasted the brain when I started chewing... overall it was pretty good an will be paying 6 pesos again for another one hahaha.  I've started to work out again, I took a break but I'm getting back at it and I am going to try and stop eating rice..... I remember when I first got here it was so difficult to eat rice everyday but now its hard not to eat it… I literally need rice at every meal. I can't wait to go back home and eat at Bari Bari and eat all the rice and the Japanese guy is going to be like hahaha fat boy and I'm going to tell him to shut up in Tagalog hahaha. So thank you again to all the people who have emailed me and sorry I cant eamil you back right now... I am so frustrated with the internet shop right now I have had to switch computers 4 times in order to get on to my email and send this little update. so this is just the pleasure of emailing in a foreign country. But thank you again I really miss you all. And if you are wondering yes they celebrate valentines day and no. I didn't do anything for valentines day beside just hang out at home and talk. Thank again eveyone..
