Monday, September 19th - our current house & another BIG fafaga

 Our house

One fafaga (dinner). I can't believe they give us all this food when 
there are only two people in the house...  Very generous, kind, and loving people!

No McDonalds or Carl's Jr. but pizza twice and fried chicken twice. I'm about to throw in the towel...

This week was pretty normal. We have about 5 investigators right now but they set appointments just once a week so it's been hard trying to help them progress.

E. is our closest investigator to getting baptized right now. We've done the first three lessons with him and he comes to church every Sunday. Yesterday we did a lesson with him about baptism and it went really well.  He knows he needs to get baptized but he said he needs to fix some things before he commits to a date, so hopefully we can figure out what those things are and help him.

We have another investigator named M. She isn't baptized but her husband is a less active member.  We went over to their house Saturday and did a lesson with them on the restoration. It went super well and M. accepted everything and seemed really interested in the Book of Mormon. She's Tongan so we got her a Tongan Book of Mormon and she was really happy about that. For some reason the Tongan ones are hard cover which is sweet. I don't know why the Samoan ones aren't... We're going to invite her to be baptized this week for a day in October.

Our other investigators are going well. They don't seem as interested as E. and M. but we're trying. It's been really difficult to find new people to teach. We don't get many referrals from members and when we knock doors people either aren't home, are home and don't answer the door, or just simply don't want to talk to us.  The challenges of being a missionary...

Everyone also feels they need to speak English to us which is annoying so I just respond in Samoan.
That's about it...short & sweet.
