Lami - Week 5 in the books!
I know that I talked all about how crazy it was that I've already been in Fiji for over a month last time. But I realized that this week was my 3-month mark for my mission!! I'm already 1/8 done with my time as a missionary! And man has it been a SWELL 3 months.I'll start off with kind of a weird story. My companion and I were walking from appointment to appointment one day. As we were passing a rugby field (they're EVERYWHERE) near the end of the day, the coach ran over to us and stopped us. He asked us to come pray with the team to end their training. So we walked over and joined their huddle. It was cool! Every single one of them seemed so excited to see us, and put their arms around us as if we were part of the team. We shared a quick scripture about faith. We told them that if they would read their scriptures and pray about their upcoming rugby game, that they would win. Haha. We'll see how that turns out! We then ended with a prayer. As we walked away, I tried to imagine that happening in America. But NO WAY. The people of Fiji are just the freaking best.
