|Elder Hanks and me on exchanges|
This week was pretty good. We taught a couple people. I’m really stoked for Larry’s baptism on April 6th! His wife and son are members but he's not and I guess he's been taking the lessons from the missionaries since 1994! He decided to get baptized with Elder Fa’amausili and I. That makes me feel awesome! That just goes to show, never give up on someone! It might seem like they will be eternal investigators but it might just not be the right time for them. We are trying to work with the people in this place called Kahana valley. I guess that used to be the place where all the members used to be but now there are a bunch of less actives and non-members there. Many good things could happen if we just get the help and support of our members. The members are a lot more supportive in this area then in Hilo. It definitely makes a huge difference in the work when the members help. Being a district leader is still good. It definitely has its challenges, but overall its really good. I don’t really like the trainings, that’s all. Working with sisters is also really great. Having sisters in my district is really fun. I haven’t had any major problems with anyone yet. Everyone in our district gets along very well! I’m finally getting my suit and pants dry cleaned hahah. Some members offered to take them to the dry cleaners for us! The people here are sooooo caring they will seriously do anything for us. In fact their favorite thing to do for us is give us food. I’m still the same weight 170. I don’t think I will gain too much weight because we have zone activity every morning, which is very good. On the other hand, it’s amazing how much Elder Fa’amausili eats! Its unreal how much he eats! I honestly can’t believe how much he eats and drinks. He is constantly eating something and he even gets up in the middle of the night 2 or 3 times to eat! Them Samoans can really put down the food! I still love him though and we get along very well. He is going to start teaching me Samoan so I can start to understand what he is saying to all of our Samoan members. Whenever we are at a Samoan house I cant say anything! It stinks, I just sit there.
