Samoan Week 6: Fireside


Brothers and Sisters, Manuia le taeao (good morning)!

This week has been great! We had transfer calls this Saturday, and I will be staying here with Elder Bingham!  So no changes for us! However, there are a lot of changes to the mission since we got a lot of new missionaries (greenies). So the zones got realigned. So now we are in the Redwood Zone instead of the West Jordan Zone. Guess what!? Elder Lester, one of the missionaries that I trained, is the one of the Zone Leaders! So that will be awesome! There is also now, the Copperton, South Valley, and the Desert Peak Zone. So lots of changes! Elder Knudsen(from Branson) and the Arkansas sister are still in my district as well!

Besides from transfers, this week was pretty good. We opened up some apartments for next transfer with our Zone leader, Elder Ledbetter and Kozakevitch, and we moved furniture in them so that they are ready. We also got a little sick this week which was a bummer. Elder Bingham was pretty sick and was throwing up. So we gave him a blessing with the Zone Leaders, and just relaxed most of the day and watch LDS movies. So that was fun. He got better then next day though, so that was good.

We have been doing well. We are going on visits with members and setting them up so that has been fun! We also had a great mission fireside Sunday about families! It was really uplifting! I saw a lot of people that I knew from previous areas! It was awesome! The mission is going great, and I can't believe that another transfer has gone by! Hope all of y'all have been doing well! I love all y'all! Thanks for the support and everything! Have a good week!
