This last week was pretty good! We didn’t really get too much clean up service time, but everyone seemed to be able to take care of themselves pretty good! One of the villages we visit we couldn’t even get to for a couple days. That village had water inside of all but 3 homes. One of our recent converts was in that village, and the family of 5 that is getting close to baptism.

Which leads me into the baptisms and interviews. We interviewed just the dad of the family, but he was still having some smoking issues. So we deciede to wait to interview the rest since they all want to be baptized together. Since the interview however, he has been clean and hasn’t again smoked. We feel we’ll still be able to get him and his family, Samu, and Sis Leba baptized by the end of the month. Lepani however did get baptized on Sunday! It was great! It was a really good service. He was so overjoyed with it all, that he forgot that he was suppose to come back out of the water! He laid down flat like a brick, and I lifted him most of the way out of the water, but he stayed flat as a board and it took him a second to stand up on his own and realize that he was out of the water!

We also had a missionary fireside after church on Sunday which went pretty well. Also, at the end of sacrament meeting, Bishop Nathan had Elder Olmstead go stand up on the stand, and the congregation sang “God Be With You Till We Meet Again.” He’ll still have one more Sunday up in Lomaivuna, but it was his last combined church down in Waila.

That is about all the excitement I can think of for this week! Other than two nights in a row I had pretty bad slips and bruised up my rear end pretty bad 😛 I love you lots! Loloma levu!

Au lomani kemuni! Moce mada 🙂
