seek ye first the kingdom of God

Monday- We had a normal P day and didn't get up to a whole lot, but it was nice having a day off haha! After P day we went and had dinner with the Matamua family and we had FHE with them and another family from the ward! I over ate... as usual!

Tuesday- We did finding pretty much the whole day haha! We just went and knocked doors, and GQ'd around the train station as well! We didn't have much success but we did find a former investigator as we knocked doors so we should be able to go and teach him again soon which will be nice! That night we got to go to the Paki's house for a delicious dinner and a good lesson! I lost my voice this day so teaching and stuff was funny because I sounded like I was going through puberty all over again haha! But they invited us over for Christmas too so that will be fun!

Wednesday- We did service for an non member lady who's name is Carmel! We helped her to clean up her yard for Christmas time and what not! Then we had some good lunch with her! Then we went and did tracting for 3 straight hours hahaha it was a good time! Then after tracting we went and visited a less active member who was cool but super awkward and didn't talk a whole lot so it was weird.. After that we went and got some dinner and called it a night!

Thursday- We did service at the Latu's house this morning and I was sick the whole time! When we got home I just slept the rest of the day until our appointment that night! I hate colds!!! Haha the dinner appointment we had was with a less active family and we got to play a game with them and teach them a good lesson about the new #LightTheWorld thing for Christmas!

Friday- We had DTM in the morning and then after that my companion had to meet with the school advisers for a little bit and then after that we had a good little farewell party thing for some of the missionaries leaving this next week! Then we went and got some lunch, made our Christmas cards and then we did finding at the train station! Sister Paki made us some dinner again this night and so we went and picked it up and ate it at the flat! It was like cafĂ© rio sweet pork but it was chicken instead! Sooooo goood!!!:)

Saturday- We had a lesson with the Archers in the morning which was good! Then we went and did some finding at the train station again! After finding we went and helped set up for the Ward Christmas party! We helped to make some Otai (a delicious tongan drink made from watermelon, milk, sugar, and coconut shavings) Then we had the ward Christmas party which was super fun and there was so much food!!

Sunday- We did some finding in the morning before we went to church. Church was really good, we had some good lessons on service! After church we went to the Pikula's home for dinner and a lesson! After that we went and watched this orchestra/choir sing at the chapel! It was a good turn out a lot of people cam! I got to see Elder Foa'i there too which was cool haha I miss that guy!

My spiritual thought is from 3 Nephi when Christ is teaching the Nephite people and this is His counsel to them,

3 Nephi 13:30-34

 30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, evenso will he clothe you, if ye are not of little faith.
 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we beclothed?
 32 For your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow, for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficientis the day unto the evil thereof.
SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD!! Heavenly Father knows of our needs and he will make sure that we have what we NEED, if we seek His Kingdom, and do His will!
Love you guys!!
