August 2012

This week has been a busy week for us.  You are right mom, we do a lot
of less active work here. We taught 14 less active lessons this last week.  A lot of them want to come back, but something gets in the way. But there isn't anything too exciting going on here at the moment, just the usual working hard for the kingdom of God.  Oh we have been meeting with a nonmember guy and this week he is inviting his minister to come and talk with us. He is a pentecostal guy.  So we will see how that lesson goes with him.

Well I am learning how to play the guitar now, started a few days ago so we will see if I am any good by the time I get home. 
We had the same lesson on sharing the gospel on Sunday out of the George Albert Smith book.  He was a great missionary. we are finding quite a few new people to teach, we got 2 new investigators last week and we are hoping to get another new one today from a less active family.  Transfers are coming up, we will find out not this Saturday but the following one.  So we will see what happens. I would like to stay but I also want to go somewhere new too, so we will see what happens.  
I am getting transferred to White Horse Canada!!  
Yeah a big change, there is a branch out there and another missionary set too.  To get there I am taking a plan to Juneau and then taking a ferry to Skagway and then drive to White horse.  It will be and adventure.  My companion is Elder Gardner.  He is still pretty new on his mission.  So it will be crazy.  I am excited though for a change.  The ward is sad to see me go.  So we will see if I finish my mission there.  
So the last update on the work here in the Tongan ward is that we have someone on date to be baptized on September 3rd.  She is solid, she the girlfriend of a less active member in the ward.  But she has a few member friends in our ward already, but she isn't Tongan though so it will be up to her if she decides to still attend the Tongan ward or not.  I will still keep in contact with the Elders here in the Tongan ward to check her progress.  Elder Kafoa, one of my old companions, is coming to serve with Elder Tonga.
