Iokwe aolep!

      I have had a great week in Uliga this past week working with my intake brother Elder Dunn my first time working with my intake, it is the best. The president interviewed me last minute saying that I was not going to serve in Long island but that I was going to Uliga to work with Elder Dunn. I am happy to be back in Uliga I like the ward, the area. 
      Thursday I left from Laura to Uliga, and started working with Elder Dunn all that day we studied with investigators and went to a members house. On Friday we had service with the Delap Elder's.  In Delap we were mixing cement for this house it was so fun even though I was dead after that service, yeah mixing cement with shovels is a work out. I forgot to take a picture of me mixing cement but next time I will when we have the service again then after that service we had another one at a members house pulling weeds throwing trash away, it was a lot of work. I like giving service to people and helping them, and showing my love for them by serving them. 

Saturday was a very busy day we had lessons with our investigators, and telling all of them about church and to come.  At night time we went to a baptism in the Jenrok ward it was good except there was more missionaries then members there it was sad. And after that we went to a birthday party for this Kiritbatus family there was a lot of Kiritbus people there, they did a Kiritbus traditional dance it was so cool plus I also forgot to bring my camera.  I feel so bad, I am going to start to bring my camera more often. 

Sunday was good but at first there was more investigators then members and we waited for the bishop for 30 minutes after the time we were supposed to start and then all of the members just came like a wave, but church was awesome! I am happy to be back in Uliga! I hope all yous have a great week! 

    Ij iokwe kom! Im ikonaan komolol anij kon iien in imaron pad lo majel im jerbal ilo majol! majol elukkun emman majol ippa!
     I love yous!   And I want to thank Hod for this time I can be in Marshall Islands and work in Marshall island!  Marshall island is very good with me!

Iokwe aolep!

   In Majuro we just had stake conference, it was great! The president Larkin, he spoke of members inviting their less active families and members back to church. He also said that they can do small things like talking to them by being there friends, or baking them a cake. Then they will feel your love for them, and they will fell important. I liked his talk, I am going to try harder to implement his talk with my investigators, members, and less actives because I want them to feel my love for them. 

       Over the past few weeks I have been working back in Majuro in Laura/ Arrack, it has been great! This past week it has rained a lot and in Marshallese culture they sleep when it rains and don't want you to come in there house wet cause it's bad manners. So it has been difficult to go talk to people. but this past Wednesday, after district meeting we went to see are investigator you is names is Sam he is pretty old and he can't remember is age or when he was born, one lesson he told us he was 41 but he doesn't look like. I feel so bad but that Wednesday we taught him about the book of Mormon, and one of the senior missionary came with us because he wants to learn marshallese his name is Elder Seager from Las Vegas. I hoped Sam understood I know he felt the spirit in the lesson because I felt it too. And also hearing Elder Seager's testimony in marshallse I felt the spirit. And all during that it rained so hard it was crazy!  

     I love the Marshall Islands, I love the people, there culture, there food, and everything about the Marshall islands. I also love this gospel which i get to share every single day! 

      Kommooltata aelop! Ij lukkuun Iokwe kom!
