Doing good! Many miracles!
We've found another investigator that wants to be baptized. Way cool. This family that we found using the membership records was prepared! its pretty amazing, the mother is way happy that we came over to their house and found them. She tells us all the time. Then, while eating a members house last night, they were telling us that they are so much happier now at home. Before, they would always argue and what not, but now they are doing so good! The gospel changes people!
We also got to listen to our area seventy speak yesterday at stake conference, that was pretty cool. Our mission president also spoke. So it was way good to have 2 spiritual giants talk to us!
Things are just great!

We had another great week. We are just seeing a lot of blessing!
We had 3 investigators attend church on Sunday and they are all planning on getting baptized this month! Their names are Peni, Vilikesa, and Sereseini. They are doing way good. Its pretty amazing to see how they have been able to progress in the gospel.
This work is definitely the most rewarding thing I've ever done. I received a call from the mission office today telling me that they were preparing my flight plans for when I have to come home. And an email from my mission president letting me know about my outtake. A lot of missionaries are now talking about what I will do when I get home and all these things. Its frustrating because its making me feel like I don't have much more time left on the mission. Four months is going to go by super fast.
Its interesting how the Spirit changes us. I've wanted a tattoo since I was 18 years old, but the only reason I didn't get one is because someone told me to wait 2 years and if I still want it, then I should get it. But by the time 2 years came, I was a member of the church-so I didn't get one only because the Prophet and Apostles told us not to. And out here on the mission-I've still wanted to get one-but I knew that if I go home and got a tattoo after being a return missionary then that would look pretty bad for me the day that I stand before God and he asks me "why did you get a tattoo?" I've been thinking about it lately and been looking at other peoples tattoos and something this week changed me. I'm not sure what it was, but one day I saw a tattoo and I thought to myself "that doesn't look good."  I'm really grateful that the Lord changed me, because now, I don't want to get a tattoo. I thought about how if someone came to the temple and sprayed it with graffiti it would not look good. So I'm really happy now that I don't want a tattoo anymore.
Just thought I'd share that with you all.
Vinaka Vakalevu!

Hey everyone!

Sorry if I didn't write much last week.
But we've been seeing a lot of miracles this past couple of weeks. We've found like 5 new investigators and like 3 of them are way good! I'm just super happy right now because of all the miracles we've been having. We had 2 investigators come to church yesterday and we had 4 come to church last week. When we first got here, we thought we had a lot of good investigators, but we couldn't find them or couldn't sit down with them. So we decided to try to find some more people and we were blessed with finding people through the ward membership list and a referral. Its been great!
When we first got to the area, we were having like 7 lessons per week, but every week for the last 4 weeks we've been improving on that. We had 14 this week with having less actives coming to church and investigators. Its been quite a different change from my last area, it was really hard for people to come to church because everybody lived so far away from the chapel that they had to either walk/hitch or they couldn't come. And if it was raining, it made it even harder. But I'm just on top of the world right now with my area and my companion and my district.
We have a new area that re-opened this week and they put 2 elders in it.  Elder Faamoe and Elder Gray-who both happen to be from...... MISSOURI!
What the heck?! And they are in my district, so that is pretty cool. finally someone who understands about Kansas City in the Mission.

Well thanks for the email!
