Happy Thanksgiving, y’all!


Brothers and sisters, Talofa!

Happy Thanksgiving, y’all!! Well, it turns out that I am getting transferred out of the Samoan area! I will be going to the Hunter and Hunter East Stake! So, I’ll be going back to white people. haha! It’s close by my last area in Hunter South. It’s just right across the street! So. it’s going be fun going back to the Hunter District! So, I will be here for Christmas, as well. My new companion is Elder Gee, and he is from Michigan and I’m super excited to be with him! He has been out for almost as much as me for 16 months.

My last week here in the Samoan area I said my goodbyes to the investigators and members. We had our lesson with E.J. And Emerson which was great. We taught them the commandments, and they are super excited are ready to be baptized soon! We also had lunch with one of our members this week at Olive Garden which was a lot of fun! Their son actually recently got his mission call to Canada! So it was awesome to see that happen! Hard to believe I hit 17 months this past week, but it’s gone by very fast! Only 7 more months left, and I know it’s going to be awesome! I’m excited to spend my winter in Hunter (or as they say it in Utah Hun’er)! It also snowed a bit on Friday during our last district meeting so that fun! The mountains are solid white now from the snow! It’s almost time to build some snowmen, haha! Although, it warmed up for Thanksgiving though. So we aren’t quite there yet.

I’m really enjoying it here in Hunter, and we are making flyers to put in the Church buildings so people can know who we are since we cover two stakes! We don’t have a car. It’s a pretty big area, but I’m pretty excited for it! I’m defiantly going to miss the Samoan culture (and their food haha!) but I’m ready for a change. And I hope I can do my best to serve in this new area! Also, I get to burn some pants for the 18th month mark next month. So I’m excited to do that! I hope everyone is having a great Thanksgiving! I love all of y’all! Stay safe! Love y’all!
