This week was amazing! Saturday was full of miracles, pretty much the whole day was a miracle.
We got invited to a wedding in this village called Namuaimada and it was the first time we've been to this village because we didn't have any work out there. But when we got there, my companion told me that the last elders that were here in 2011 were ran out of this village! Crazy! But when we were there, we got to meet a lot of people and even had an intro lesson with a man named Weis.
Another man had a lot of questions, but we were unable to sit down with him because we needed to go back to the flat and do our studies. So we just gave him a restoration pamphlet. I think we will be going back there in a couple of weeks. Probable take it slow with that village. But while we were waiting for the bus back to town, we had this woman come up to us and ask us if we were LDS and we said yeah, we are the missionaries and she was talking about another woman in the
village that was wondering where the church was. We were able to meet the one who was looking for the church and she told us she is currently living in American Samoa for work, but she was just baptized at the end of April!! Crazy! When we were talking to her, a bus came, but we still needed to talk to her and the bus wasn't going to wait, so we decided to stay and talk to her and the bus left. When we finished talking to her, we saw 2 men that were at the wedding that we talked with a little and they offered us a ride back to town(about 30 minutes away). When we got to town, we stopped at the market to buy some bananas so we can have pancakes with them and we paid $1.50 for like 50 or 60 bananas, we thought it was too much so we gave some away to some people that we know, and we still had like 20 or 30. When we were walking back to the flat we got another ride from this Fijian man that we always see when we walk to the bridge that is out. He gave us a ride in a really big truck that is used for carrying rocks and dirt and stuff. That was really nice, then we tried to give him some
bananas, but he wouldn't take them! He told us that picking us up and dropping us off was a blessing. Hopefully one day we will get to sit down with him. We are just way busy! But thank you for the email and everything! I got the package about 2 weeks ago, but my district leader still has it.
I'll pick it up tomorrow. Thank you for everything!
Oh and we had a baptism in the ocean yesterday!! Yawa(far out) hahaha
Love you guys!
Love, Elder Beilman
