Hey mom!!What you described is what we hold a record for. If a member comes with you to go and teach an investigator that lesson is a member present lesson. So last week we taught more member presents than other lessons which means a member was not there. Thats never happened in any mission ever. :)

Hello!!I am glad to hear everything is going well! I hope you ate plenty at the crab feed! lucky! Harley and Michael are in Hawaii???? I want to see a picture of Howard! To see Sophia at the same school would be no small thing. It would be sweet-o! I am glad you see the Book of Mormon differently now. We have been given a challenge to read it again by May 1st which is great. Once I finish Jesus the Christ and the Doctrine and Covenants I will start reading the Old Testament and the Doctrine and Covenants manual. I have so much reading I want to do! I love when you can see what you are reading come to life. I just picture Abish throwing her arms in the arm and shouting for joy when she sees a bunch of people looking like theyre dead. If I saw that in person I might think shes a little crazy wouldnt you? haha Great missionary Ammon was. If I would say one thing about serving a mission you will love every second of it and I hope you get one just like this. The most exciting and unique. Teaching really strengthens Testimony so be getting ready!
Alright I love you all and hope everything is going better than before. Have a great week!

Hello!!Look at my mother sending me an email through her Iphone!!! haha Thats sweet-o! Seems like you all had a pretty eventful week with Hannah and the new Babay! I am sure you are happy to be home though! Are you home yet? And sophia!! Thats a very unique dress!! Its awesome!!
The apartment is so much nicer too!! We have generator but we have a fridge so water gets cold! I have my own bed too and not a bunk bed!!!! There are some great things about this apartment. You remember that rotten casava I was talking about? Fufu? We could call our investigator and have it delivered to the apartment every day if we wanted! So good. We also get an FM every night from our Branch President and we eat so much food... The apartment is in my area too so its easy to stop for lunch.. Wow I might get fat here but I am starting to workout even more so I guess we will see!
At baptisms saturday I saw Sister Solomie!!! She was the 1st councilors wife in Banjor branch who would always feed us. She said I look so grown up like a man now haha I guess it has been 7 months since ive seen her.
On Wednesday we had Mission Council and the room has AC in it. When we stopped for Lunch I was so happy to get out of the room! Its not going to be easy going back to the cold or normal weather since im used to more heat now. One thing I did finally was buy a good pair of pants! Well our Branch Mission Leader did it today haha I will send a picture of what I used compared to my new pair.
Well there is so much work to be done in my zone. Elder Zolo is a great missionary and is teaching me French. We conducted Leadership training Friday and I was able to see my second son Elder Falemai! Hes doing great. So I have conducted 30 interviews for Candidates to be baptized and the 30th one is the first one ive ever interviewed that has never broken the law of Chastity. I was so excited! Anyway, everythings great. I have a lot of work to do which is great since this week was full but fast and I have learned a lot already. I hope everyone is doing great and I miss you all but Im happy to be here. I do hope what I am doing has been blessing everyone at home.Love,
Hey mom!!!It was so great to hear everyones voice on Christmas!! I hope new years will be great. I didnt realize I had an accent like that... Ohh Africa!
