Tyhee and Halfway There! - May 25, 2015

So, the first week in my new area has been really good. I really like Tyhee. Not going to lie, it's a heck of a lot different than Poky West, but I like it a lot. It's more spread out and stuff like that. We even moved this week from a member's house to an apartment down in Chubbuck. So, i packed everything up, got transferred really far away, unpacked a bit, packed back up again, moved to an apartment, and then unpacked everything again. I really hope they don't move us soon/I get transferred at the end of this transfer

Can you believe in two days I hit my halfway point? I literally cannot. Good grief, it's gone by so fast. Nine months down, nine to go :)

My new companion is Sister Boyd and she is literally like my favorite person right now. We stay up....late ish...talking and I really enjoy being around her. So that's good.

But yeah, this week was super busy. Especially with getting everything ready to go for transfers. Sister Fa'oa and I had a super busyTuesday. We were able to see Audrey the last time and teach her the last lesson. She had these amazing questions, I can't even remember all of them because they were so in depth and in detail. But she is so ready and I can't wait for her baptism this weekend! Even though it doesn't count for our numbers (and I don't really care about that, honestly), she's one of my favorite converts. :) Teaching her was literally one of the most fantastic experiences of my mission so far.

Anyway, it's been a good week. I like my new area a lot. I love my new companion. And I'm ready to work hard these next few weeks.

Love you!

More New Things - May 17, 2015

So, first things first, I'm getting transferred on Wednesday to Tyhee. It's literally 2 miles down the road from where I'm at now. But, I'm excited because that's the stake Karen lives in! So i'm happy about that. I wasn't expecting to be transferred so soon, too. And we're whitewashing out and elders are coming into our area. So there' that!

Anyway, Audrey is doing AWESOME. We basically ended up teaching her everything this past week. We were able to set a date with her for the 30th of this month! On Tuesday, we sat down with her and she said how much she wants to be baptized. So, she is awesome. She's basically looking at baptism as a lifelong commitment, which is great. She isn't doing this just because everyone else is. She's doing this because this is what she wants. Her parents aren't members, but they're really supportive of what she wants to do. We are so excited for her. After nothing going on for the past two and a half months, this is a huge miracle.

Hmm. What else?

We took one of our investigators to a fireside last night...and she had had a..."few" glasses of wine beforehand. Oh goodness. That lady is so..interesting. I had to really try not to laugh at the fireside last night. 

Anyway, love you guys!

Good News - May 4, 2015

So. Good news. I'm learning Tongan. Bad news? I have an accent. But, that's ok. I'm still learning. Someday, I need to go to Tonga and try out my horrible Tonga. Which might be bad...because I can only say about 3 phrases. 
But yeah. It's been kinda a crazy week. We've been really busy and stuff, which is good. 
We met this awesome potential investigator at church. She's 12 years old, and is dang cool. I invited her to be baptized, and her response was, "Well..I don't know, because I'm not sure I have the money to do that." We got a kick out of that, and explained to her that it won't cost any money. Haha. 
This week we went on exchanges and I went with another sister to ISU campus, which was interesting. It was weird being on a university campus while I wasn't a student. But, it went pretty well.

Anyway, I can't really think of anything's just been a crazy week. 

OH. Next Sunday, I'll probably be able to skype home. I'll probably go around 3 or 4 my time. Sometime after church meetings. I'll probably call you before or something. So heads up about that.

So yeah. Ofa lahi atu!
