Update September 28, 2015: Paddlers and Guava

Week 83

Aloha everyone!

This past week went faster than the last! Crazy I have less than 14 weeks left. Well the big news is Elder Willis is off to Wahiawa and Elder Kelly is here. He has Less than 6 weeks left! We are probably the oldest companionship in the mission! Crazy to think about. He Is from Colorado Springs, Colorado and is 5th generation Army! We get along real well. Guns, knives, and anything outdoors. We are excited to work together here and to push our last couple weeks. Go out with a bang! That’s our motto! Heavenly Father has a purpose for us here and we are going to fulfill it whatever it may be!

This week

Monday- we spent most of the day chillin and cleaning our pad.

Tuesday- was Elder Willis’ Last full day so he packed and we had a service project then spent the rest of the day saying goodbye to people.

Wednesday- Elder Willis flew out at 1:30pm so we went out East end for lunch with Wade and Rusty then took him to the Airport. We picked up Elder Kelly and went straight to service! We are helping the Kalani’s put in a storm drain in their driveway and then spread some fresh gravel.

​Getting ready to Dig!

Thursday- we made a dump run in the morning then more at the Kalani’s. Thursday night was our Ward Chili Cook-off it was awesome! Elder Kelly, Rusty and I were the judges. It was super good and hard to choose the best!

Friday- we spent the morning at the house cleaning and mowing the yard and some other things. We then had a couple great appointments then went downtown for the Block party. The next couple weeks is the annual Canoe race from Molokai to Honolulu. There are paddlers from all over the Pacific here to compete! It was really cool!

Saturday- morning we went up hunting. Got nothing but did come home with a bunch of Strawberry Guava so Elder Kelly and I Made Strawberry Guava syrup for pancakes and drink mix! It worked out really well! We are going to head up there again today to pick some more!

​Preparing the Strawberry Guava

Sunday- was good as always and had a great lesson with a potiential investigator that night! All was good this week!

Blessed to be here. Blessed to have a  loving family. Blessed to serve my God and these people.

Love you all,
Elder Shoaf
