Bula vinaka!Week 2 down in the Fijian islands! It is such a beautiful country. It was a really good week! I guess I'll just give you a breakdown day by day.
- are service days for all the missionaries here. We find someone to do service for and do about 3 hours of service. This week we helped an investigator with his farm. We weeded (with machete's), chopped down some plants (with machete's), and planted a bunch of stuff (not necessarily with machete's). Then once we finished he took us straight into the jungle. HOLY COW it was so sick. We followed this river and even went to an underground waterfall. Then he took us to the top of this mountain and the view was AMAZING. I felt so grateful for the beautiful world our Heavenly Father has given us. It was a way awesome service day. So my both first service day and P-day were possibly the best of my mission!
- A lot of the appointments we had fell through. It was kind of a tough day, we walked way far. But a member bought us a TON of dinner so that kind of made up for it. ;)
- we went on exchanges with the Zone Leaders. I went to a different area and taught lessons to people that I'll probably never see again. But it was way fun!
- went great! My favorite investigator came to church! He also brought his kids, and pretty much all of the neighbor kids too. Haha. I sat with them during sacrament. PHEW! I gained so much respect for mothers that deal with kids during sacrament. Haha.
