I am actually companions with the Elder who replaced me in Labasa and he got to go down to Nakawakawa and do 15 baptismal interviews for the Elders there. They were a huge part of us reaching our mission goal! Which by the way, you all know that we had the goal to hit 100 baptisms in the month of March. Just on the last Sunday our zone alone had 10 baptisms, including the Saturdaybefore the mission had 45 baptisms, giving us a grand total of 123 baptisms for the month of March! At the MLC we had this last week, we also discussed helping the mission not slow back down after this great effort, but continuing to improve. So as a council we set a new mission goal for the 2nd quarter of reaching 420 total baptisms for the year by the end of June. We are going to try and even continue to increase the momentum!
As for other news in realation to our area, half of our zones baptisms on that last Sunday came from the family that we baptized! Senivalati, Luisa, Senivalati Jr., Ana, and Amani were all baptized and they are in the photo which I already sent! It was a crazy awesome Sunday. It was the Waila ward conference as well. Overall it was probably the best church service I have been to in Fiji. Classes, talks, etc were all astounding. In addition to the 5 who were baptized, we had 7 other investigators attend church! One investigator of which, Saikusa, said to us afterwards when trying to find a time to meet him “Don’t worry about me Elders. I am in the fold now. I am in the fold.” As if to say “consider me baptized.” It was a very good day.
I think that is all I have to share this week! What an exciting time to be serving!
