GUYS. WHAT A SPECTACULAR WEEK. Ok so we have been working like crazy to find new people to teach and it has been great! We found two new people! Woot woot. Also one of our people went to the temple and he and his wife are going to get sealed soon. So yeah Tongan stake is fun! Sorry I haven't written in a while.... I'm repenting I promise😁
So this week we found Jenley and she is soooo awesome and way prepared! She is from Guam and came to America to avoid an arranged marriage. She has heard about the church her whole life but hasn't met with missionaries because her family wouldn't let her. But anyway her fiancé (Rod) is a returned missionary and has been teaching her stuff and she has been coming to church when she doesn't work. She loves the idea of families being together forever and told us she wants to be baptized and sealed to Rod! She told us that she feels something is missing and she thinks this is it. It was way exciting to see the difference in her between just the first and second visit! We're super excited to keep working with her!
Our other new person were teaching is Sherri. We found her looking through our area book. So she actually has no Tongan connections but decided she wants to try to the Tongan ward anyway. She grew up in the church but was never baptized. She told us she is ready for some positive and wants to go to church and get baptized! She is super sweet and we're excited to work with her!
Last week we found somebody new to teach as well. Her name is Crystal and she is also super prepared!! She is from the Marshall Islands but has lived over here for awhile. She met with missionaries over in Washington but didn't end up getting baptized. This time as we were teaching her she told us she knows it's all true and wants to get baptized! She will be getting married here in a few weeks and wants to get baptized after.
We have seen so many miracles out here and I feel so blessed to be serving where I am. I'm so grateful for the atonement and how it enables us to change and grow. I'm grateful for all of you and hope you all have a fantastic week! Love ya!
