KADAVU - Week 18

Things are looking up!
Bula Vinaka!
Hey everyone! Yet ANOTHER week has gone by! Time is going by INCREDIBLY fast. I can already imagine that some of the radio stations back home are playing Christmas music! Haha. And then as soon as Thanksgiving passes by it's full Christmas season already. Make the most of it, because 2016 is almost gone forever!

This week was a great week! We are getting more people to teach! We're going door to door a lot and we're finding some pretty good potentials! I've definitely seen the Lord's help in leading us to the houses that are willing to accept us in. My companion and I are getting along really well! We're working as hard as we can to do all we can for this area. I love missionary life!

The past few weeks we have had some REALLY random things happen to us. First, we saw a chicken at like the highest branch of a tree. Chickens can't really fly! We looked at it in awe. Only Fijian chickens have the super powers to get to the top of a tree. We also saw a GOAT in a tree. Standing on one of it's branches. Uh..... Haha. Some Fijians also caught a wild pig while we were walking. Then it started BARKING and GROWLING at them like a dog. I have never seen a pig like that.

For a spiritual thought, I just want to tell a quick reminder about Family History. Sometimes with all the busy things we have going in our life, we forget about the importance of turning our hearts to our fathers, and their fathers, and their fathers. If we set aside some time during the week (Sunday is a very good day) to do Family History work, we'll feel the spirit more in our life, and Temple worship will be more meaningful. So try to do more Family History!

I would also like to tell again about Kenneth Cope. He has not reached his goal yet, and he needs your help! I truly know that this project will bless the world. Check out this link for a sweet video:

Well... That's about it! I love you guys! I hope all is well! Until next week, keep on keepin' on!

  1. Good morning how are you?

    My name is Emilio, I am a Spanish boy and I live in a town near to Madrid. I am a very interested person in knowing things so different as the culture, the way of life of the inhabitants of our planet, the fauna, the flora, and the landscapes of all the countries of the world etc. in summary, I am a person that enjoys traveling, learning and respecting people's diversity from all over the world.

    I would love to travel and meet in person all the aspects above mentioned, but unfortunately as this is very expensive and my purchasing power is quite small, so I devised a way to travel with the imagination in every corner of our planet. A few years ago I started a collection of used stamps because trough them, you can see pictures about fauna, flora, monuments, landscapes etc. from all the countries. As every day is more and more difficult to get stamps, some years ago I started a new collection in order to get traditional letters addressed to me in which my goal was to get at least 1 letter from each country in the world. This modest goal is feasible to reach in the most part of countries, but unfortunately it’s impossible to achieve in other various territories for several reasons, either because they are countries at war, either because they are countries with extreme poverty or because for whatever reason the postal system is not functioning properly.

    For all this I would ask you one small favor:
    Would you be so kind as to send me a letter by traditional mail from Fiji? I understand perfectly that you think that your blog is not the appropriate place to ask this, and even, is very probably that you ignore my letter, but I would call your attention to the difficulty involved in getting a letter from that country, and also I don’t know anyone neither where to write in Fiji in order to increase my collection. a letter for me is like a little souvenir, like if I have had visited that territory with my imagination and at same time, the arrival of the letters from a country is a sign of peace and normality and an original way to promote a country in the world. My postal address is the following one:

    Emilio Fernandez Esteban
    Calle Valencia, 39
    28903 Getafe (Madrid)

    If you wish, you can visit my blog www.cartasenmibuzon.blogspot.com where you can see the pictures of all the letters that I have received from whole World.

    Finally I would like to thank the attention given to this letter, and whether you can help me or not, I send my best wishes for peace, health and happiness for you, your family and all your dear beings.

    Yours Sincerely

    Emilio Fernandez
