Samoan Week 3: Power of a Testimony


Brothers and Sisters, Talofa! This week was awesome! I had a baptism back in my last area in West Valley which was great, and I was able to go! It was great to attend that! It was April who was the single mom that we were meet with back in the Hunter South Stake.  Elder Bingham also had a baptism in his last area which we were able to go to as well which was awesome! This week we also had interviews with President Palmar which was awesome! It's always good to talk to him! The next transfer is coming up and there will be a lot of new missionaries so a lot of new areas will be opening up. So everyone is excited for that! It's hard to believe that this transfer is half way over! It's going by fast!

We also had a funny experience this week. One of our senior couples set up a lesson with some Samoan Seven Day Adventist missionaries! So that was crazy, but it went well. They had a lot of questions and one of them used to be a member, but is now less  active. The other nonmember one liked what we said and it made sense to him. So hopefully one day he makes contact again with missionaries! We gave them our number if they ever had more questions. But it was a fun little experience that happen this week! We ate a great lunch that was prepared afterward which was awesome, too!

The mission has been awesome! I love every second of it! It's been a huge testimony builder. It's weird now being one of the older missionaries in the mission! It goes by too fast! I'm the oldest in the district! Haha! The second oldest came out last September and everyone else came out in 2017! Lol! But it's great! I love it! I hope everyone has a great week! I love all of y'all!
