Week 60


What a busy week it has been!

We had a meeting with all of the Sisters in the mission on Wednesday; basically training and good words of wisdom from President and Sister Chambers. We met as a mission on Thursday to watch the documentary "Meet the Mormons." I highly encourage you to watch it, it was AWESOME! The film was produced by the church and captures six individuals who are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormon) in all their reality and humanity. "These husbands and wives, fathers and mothers share their experiences as they try to balance faith and family with work, hobbies, and culture. The film shows that even though members of the Church are very diverse, they are all part of a big family striving for the same goals."(Ensign, October 2014)

Then to top it off, it was General Conference weekend! I love conference. It's so amazing to hear words and counsel from our prophet and leaders of the church. I didn't bring my notebook to share what I really enjoyed, but look out for next week for that post. Saturday morning some of the missionaries and I caught trax to downtown. It was fun to go as a group, especially with Sister Swain. We sat really close to the pulpit (see photo below). When conference was over and we were walking out I ran into people from Hau'ula, I saw Drake Auna and his wife! Crazy! We watched the Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning sessions with Sister Jensen, our landlady, and then Sunday afternoon we had lunch and watched conference with the Harris family. They have Hawai'i ties so it was lots of food of course!

As far as missionary work, we're always looking for people to teach and share the restored gospel. We spoke with a woman on the street last night, she's from Arizona and she invited us back so we'll see how that goes. Our other two investigators, both kids, will most likely be baptized in November so we continue to teach them weekly.

Transfers are this week. I love you all! Continue to do what is right and be obedient.
