Throwback to Fagaloa
On the boat ride to Tutuila
This week was pretty good.
On Tuesday we ran into Elder Fano's family including his dad. That was funny.
We've started lessons with an 18 year old kid who did lessons with the other missionaries. He wants to get baptized but he just needs to stop smoking. We talked to him and I can sense his desire to join the church and be baptized. We planned on going over yesterday to give him a blessing but he wasn't home so we're gonna try later today. We have him set to be baptized on the 12th so pray for him that he can stop!! We also are gonna try to get him a CTR ring too. He's doing the Marine program they have here and he's going to Camp Pendleton after high school. He's never left Tutuila and it's a small island so he asks me a lot about it and is super excited to go.
The investigators we invited to the ward activites showed up to the ward party we had Friday night. They also made it out to church on Sunday. The family that lives next to them are members so we're going to try and get them to fellowship. If we help them get to know each other, I think they will continue to want to learn more. They seemed so happy at the activity and church so we're gonna try to build off of that.
On Thursday we were walking home late from the chapel and we could've asked someone for a ride but I just had a feeling we should walk and see what happens. Not too far from the chapel, this lady pulled over and offered us a ride. We talked for a bit and turns out they aren't members but one of her son's moved to the states, got baptized, and is now serving a mission. Her other kids were in the car and they all seemed really interested. So hoping to start lessons with them this week.
Other than that, a pretty average week. We're still working with the ward. Missionary work is always easier when we all work together. Trying to find people to fellowship can be challenging. We're all busy.
That's all I got! Hope you all have a good week!! Alofa atu!
