Samoan Week 12: Transfers, Exchanges, and Leadership.


Brothers and Sisters Talofa!

Well everyone, I have some very exciting news! So turns out (unlike what I thought) I will be staying here in the Samoan area! My companion, Elder Bingham, is going to Kearns! I’m going to miss him! My new companion is Elder Miller for St. Louis Missouri! He is short and is an awesome guy so I’m looking forward to being his companion! Also, I’m now the District Leader of our district which was surprising for everyone! Haha! So, this is going to be a new adventure. I’m looking forward to it! My roommates have changed as well. Now the new English Elders are Elder Rebarchic (from Alabama), Elder Keith (He was here last transfer from NC) and Elder Skelton. So it should be a fun household. haha!

Besides transfers, my week here has been awesome! We went on exchanges twice! Once with Elder Oliphant on Wednesday which was fun! I went to his area and I got to know him more! We had our lessons kind of fall through, but it was still fun! Then with Elder Bailey on Friday! He is a great guy and a football player. He is pretty fun and we saw a few people and had a great time together! In our area we have been working with some of our members, and had a few correlation meetings. So it’s been good. Our Investigator, Roy Moa, has been doing good  and he is still on track for baptism this transfer so I’m looking forward to that!

Besides that not too much going on here in Utah, hopefully we will see some snow in the valley in the next month or two! Looking forward to that again! Haha! I hope all ya’ll have been well! Thank ya’ll again for everything and for your support. It does mean a lot to me! I love ya’ll! Stay safe, and keep reading your scriptures!
