Update July 27, 2015: Never Know When the Lord Will Call

Weeks 75

Aloha Everyone!

What a week. Where do I begin? I don’t even know where so I guess I will just dive into it.

Monday- we didn’t take our P-day instead we had a great lesson with Rosemary and she has been prepared so much for the gospel! She’s excited for August 8th! We then spent most of the rest of the day helping members of Hauula 2nd  set up camp for the ward camp then we showered and went back fro dinner and Family home Evening which was a Lip Sync Battle! It was the funniest thing I have ever seen hands down.

Tuesday- we went over to camp for Breakfast Coco Samoan and Poly bread from Tita’s grill! It was pretty awesome! So good. Then we had our P-day; emailed, cleaned the pad and hung out with the sisters at the Hub! Then dinner at ward camp.

Wednesday- we had a great district meeting in the morning. The Zone leaders weren’t there so we had to break into the chapel… then we finished up studies and went to Mike’s to help him out for a bit then to the Vuniwai’s to help out over there! We also had our Kahana class, which went really well! Three of the boys that aren’t baptized yet want to be!! So we are going to start teaching them this coming week to prepare them! And then of course, Wednesday night basketball!

            Thursday- we helped out over at the Kaka’s their diesel truck ran out of fuel so I helped them get it running again. Then we helped the sister help a sister in Laie 3rd ward move. Also had a bomb dinner and lesson with the Yassos.

            Friday- we went to Guy’s First thing and helped him out the lot is clear now but just need to dig up all the roots. Then Brother Kaka helped us move some things from the Sunset Pad to our pad and we had lunch at Ted’s bakery with a family from Columbus, Ohio! Small world. Ted’s has the best pies in the world by the way. We also had a great lesson with Lei and her family and went fishing behind their house! Caught some nice Tilapia! Then we had our Missionary Basketball night! It went really well!

            Saturday- I was on Exchanges with Elder Liava’a in my area and we had a bomb day!! Learned how to make Lilikoi syrup, went to a birthday party, and contacted 2 investigators we haven’t been able to! One of which will have a baptismal date next week!! A lot of tender mercies there.

            Sunday- is when my world turned upside was a normal Sunday until after our third ward I received a call about 2pm from President Warner telling me that I would be on a plane Monday (today) to Molokai. An elder had to go home that was serving there and I will be replacing him. Transfers aren’t for almost 3 more weeks but it needed to happen now. So at 6:30 today I will fly to Molokai, which is the island just east of Oahu and is very very country. My Companion will be Elder Willis who I was in the MTC with and we will cover the whole island by ourselves. Since it’s so Country we will not have a car but a Chevy Silverado!!!!! I’m pretty excited to be back in a truck! I don’t fit well in small cars! We will travel to Maui on a ferry everyone and a while for meetings and other things of the sort. So I will get to see Maui as well!

I am sooo sad to leave Hauula. Hauula is my Home away from Indiana and a piece of my heart will always be here. These people are more than just members to me. They are family. I will never forget how much I’ve learned and grown here.  I know its through the gospel of Jesus Christ bonds like this are built. Our saviors love is the glue that binds families together for eternity.  I love this Gospel so much. I love these people. And I Love my Heavenly Father and my Older Brother and savior, Jesus Christ. On wards and upwards.
