Hey everyone! It's me again. It's been a great week! It's been raining a TON. Then the times when it's not raining, it's triple the humidity so it's torture. Haha. But everything is going well here in Navatuyaba for Elder Tupe and I!
This week has been a lot of finding. We're going door to door, inviting to baptism on our first visit every time! There has been a little bit of success! We'll just keep chugging, keep going. Sometimes it's a little discouraging because some people just don't like the missionaries. Especially because there are only 3 villages and a few more random little settlements in our area, so EVERYONE knows the Elders. But we're just trusting in the fact that the Lord is preparing people specifically for my companion and I to see!
We also have 3 people that have accepted a baptismal date! They should be happening near the end of this month and the beginning of next month. Things are going awesome with them! All 3 are women. One is 22, one is in her 30's, and one is in her 60's. The one in her 60's is missing a leg, it had to be amputated due to diabetes or something. But she has amazing faith! And now all of the sudden, as soon as she's started taking lessons, she finally got a call that she'll be receiving a prosthetic leg! She's been waiting for over a year on a waiting list. We're excited for her. The other 2 are amazing as well. The youngest one is pregnant (I'm hoping she'll name her kid after me;). The ward here is awesome! We have an average attendance of about 100, and we have dinner every single night! A huge difference from our average attendance of 20 back on Kadavu. Haha. Life's great!
As we'll be doing Family Home Evening with the members tonight, I figure it'll be a good time to remind everyone to do their Family Home Evening! It can be such a fun, but spiritual time for the whole family. Just do your best to do it each week! After all, the best place to teach and live the gospel of Jesus Christ is in the home.
Alright, well that's about it for the week! Thanks for all your emails and prayers! They help a lot! I love you all! Keep on keepin' on!
