bowling for pee day

Tuesday- We had a lovely pday this day! We went and did our emailing and shopping like usual and then we went bowling! I beat everyone so don't worry ya boy still has his skills! After that we went and got some mean charcoal chicken and it was so delicious! Then for the rest of the night we got numbers for the zone and we did some finding at the station!

Wednesday- We had interviews with President and Sister Back! It went really well and I just am beyond grateful for them! I honestly have the best mission president and mission mom that I could ever ask for. After interviews we went and gave some Elder's a ride and then we got lunch for pres and sis. Back. Then we went and had lunch ourselves and after that we went back to the chapel to talk to President about some stuff for the zone! After that we went and saw Francis and he was so glad we came! He said every time we come by its right when he needs us! After Francis we went and had dinner and a lesson with the Newlands and bishop Mahanga! His sister is sister Newland so it makes fellowship easy haha!

Thursday-  Elder Laga'aia and Elder Gregory moved out to a different flat so we helped them move out and we helped our new flat mates move in! Our new flat mates are Elders Davis and Anderson! They are both awesome and so we are happy to have them. After moving people in and re arranging/cleaning the flat we went and had MCM with the sisters in the ward at the chapel so that we could discuss the work here and see what we can do to help each other. Then we went home and got out training for ZTM all figured out!

Friday- We had ZTM and we trained on changing for the better in 2017! It was a good training and we had good participation from the zone. After ZTM we cleaned the chapel really nice and then went home and had lunch! After that we did our weekly planning and then did some GQing before dinner at the Standrings. Dinner at the Standrings was really good they are an awesome family in the ward and they love American football so ya know I had plenty to talk about with them!

Saturday- We walked all day long in the heat man!! We went and saw the Archers in the morning and had a good lesson with them! Then after that we went and followed up on potentials for awhile! No luck with any of them but that's all good, glad we did it haha! After that we did some tracting and 2nd door in we got stuck in some born again Christian's house for over an hour!! He was from Serbia so his English was pretty rough and he talked the whole time!! I don't think he took a breath the whole time! My companion and I probably spoke for 5 of the 80 minutes that we were there. The guy was a lunatic hahaha! I was going to fake a phone call to get us out of there but then our flat mates called us at that exact moment!! MIRACLES!!! They came and picked us up and we got to leave finally! We went back and had dinner and then started our fast. Then we went to visit a member real quick and then we GQ'd the rest of the night. My comp lost his wallet on the train though so that sucked. Someone found it luckily and so we will pick it up this week!

Sunday- We had church in the morning and fast and testimony meeting! It went good as usual! After church we got to meet with the stake president and discuss what we can do to help him out and help the stake out! It was a good meeting! After that we went home and did our studies and then followed up on a referral with no luck. So then we scouted out good places to do finding during the week. After that we went and ended our fast! Then we went to a return missionary welcome home fireside! It was super good and it made me grateful to be on a mission! We sang a good song with other missionaries for it and we even did a verse of it in Tongan.. we are that cool man. Then we had a good feed with everyone haha I ate too much!!!!

 Ether 2:22-25
 22 And he cried again unto the Lord saying: Lord, behold have done even as thou hast commanded me; and have prepared the vessels for my people, and behold there is no light in them. Behold, Lord, wilt thou suffer that we shall cross this great water in darkness?
 23 And the Lord said unto the brother of Jared: What will ye that should do that ye may have light in your vessels? For behold, ye cannot have windowsfor they will be dashed in pieces; neither shall ye take fire with you, for ye shall not go by the light of fire.
 24 For behold, ye shall be as whale in the midst of the sea; for the mountain waves shall dash upon you. Nevertheless, will bring you up again out of the depths of the sea; for the winds have gone forth out of my mouth, and also the rains and the floods have sent forth.
 25 And behold, prepare you against these things; for ye cannot cross this great deep save prepare you against the waves of the sea, and the winds which have gone forth, and the floods which shall come. Therefore what will ye that should prepare for you that ye may have light when ye are swallowed up in the depths of the sea?

The Brother of Jared needed help to light their vessels and so he went to the Lord and asked what they should do. The Lord's answer was ya know you have a brain for a reason so think about some ideas first and then come to me when you have some ideas and ask if it is the right way. If it is right I will let you know, if not then I will let you know as well. The Lord is always there to help us but we must put in the work to receive answers. The brother of Jared had the faith that the Lord could do anything for them and that he knew the right way. He just needed to put in the work to receive the help and answers. The answers and help did come in a miraculous way for him and I know that these miracles have not ceased! We can receive all sorts of help and miracles from the Lord as we rely on him and put in effort! Love you all!
