Four Months ago I got on a plane and flew to the island of Hawai'i
and these four months are times I will never forget.
I've been able to see so many miracles here in the Lord's service,
I have been able to meet so many people who have become O'hana to me.
I have grown to be a better missionary and a happier person.
This week I will be leaving the Honoka'a Ward and I'm off to the Rock, O'ahu.
I have been blessed with so many wonderful people, here in Hawaii, back home, and my friends serving all over the world.
God is so good, my PEEPS. God is good.
Oh by the way, my wonderful comp and I figured out what peeps stands for (since we use it all the time)
People Entering Eternal Paths towards Salvation. or
People Enduring Eternal Paths of Salvation.
okay this week was amazing, we were able to attend a World Wide Mission Conference. I learned how to better work with Recent Converts and Less-Active families. I also gained a deeper understanding of My Call to Serve.
This conference was called "We teach Repentence and Baptize Converts"
fun fact, I'll be meeting Elder Holland this weekend. He is my favorite. and I almost fainted when I found that out.
so, if yall need me to tell him anything, let me know.
okay sorry this email is all over the place.
We met with our investigator, Diane, this week. She is doing so well! She took our challenge to read the Book of Mormon 5 minutes every day. She says it makes a difference in her life. It's so cool to see how people come to understand the gospel and the blessings, isn't that what we're all trying to figure out? :) okay, I wish you all could meet her and feel of her spirit. I have witnessed a huge change in her. She was a wonderful person before, but now that she has the gospel AND is accepting it, SHE IS UNBELIEVABLY WONDERFUL. I feel Christ's love for her, and I know that He is healing her.
Sister Alldredge and I have had so much fun this past transfer. As we worked extra hard and focused on exact obedience, we witnessed MIRACLES. I'm not even kidding, MIRACLES. She is so amazing, it was so fun to be her trainer! I'm gonna miss that girl. we witnessed multiple families come back to church as they found their love for the gospel. we witnessed the healing of people's hearts and minds. we didn't get dengue, even though we probably should have like 4 different times. Miracles, I'm telling ya! :) we even got to see a family sealed in the temple for time and all eternity.
And that's what it's all about. So keep enduring! Get to the temple! don't get dengue! and be happy cuz life is good. GOD IS GOOD <3
Love you all, thank you for your kindness, love, support, and MAIL! (I wouldn't mind if I got more letters in the mail .... jaycie micadyn kaleb. hint, hint ;)
I'm sad to leave Honoka'a, but I'm excited for my next stop: Olomana
