WHY IS IT MONDAY AGAIN!  Ha-ha Oh hi there!

Well Palau is still super awesome. I am just over here living in paradise!

We had a great week this week! Elder Ititaake and I decided that we REALLY needed new investigators; so, this whole week, we went out and talked to every single person we saw! We went crazy with the area book, trying to find former investigators that may be ready for the Gospel now. We visited less actives and part member families, trying to get referrals. It was great! We found so many wonderful investigators. I am so excited to watch them progress.

This past Saturday there was a youth YSA activity. The theme this year is “ASK”. The event was fun, and well attended. Bonus, they served BBQ chicken and rice. (so, it was probably the best day of my life!)

The other day while we were trying to find more investigators, we started a conversation with “T”. He surprised us when he just dropped everything he was doing and said… “Alright, I am going to come with you guys and help you get some more investigators.” Ha-ha He is awesome!

I want to be an RM (Returned Missionary) just like him. Always willing and ready to do the Lords work. I love this work. It truly is the greatest work. It has forever changed my life and will continue to change it for eternity.

Sunday, I was asked to give a talk in sacrament meeting. As I was speaking guess who I saw walk into the Chapel? “G”, you all still remember “G” from my first area a little over a year ago! It was so good to see and talk with him! He is still the same goof ball as ever. The Sisters are going to try and teach him again. I know one day he will enter the waters of baptism.

Well… that is about all I have to share this week. The Church is true. The Book of Mormon is true. And Jesus is the Christ! It is a great day, and nothing else in this world matters.

I love you all! Have a safe and amazing week!

  • Some of the YSA at the activity.
  • Elder Ititaake snagged a picture of me closing the door on our way out to preach the other day. I felt like I was having a pretty good hair day (which does not happen often on a hot humid pacific island) so I thought I would share it with you!
