How are you all doing today?! So as you can already tell this week was very interesting. So I will just start into it! At the beginning of the week we found out that we have Flea's in our Flat! Yeah! Haha. So I have a bunch of bites all over my body. They itch and don't feel that great! I just try not to itch them all the time. haha. But we used Permitherine to kill them and we are hoping they are all dead. We sprayed the beds and washed our sheets and I sprayed down my blankets. So pray that they are all gone!
Now let me clarify. I did not Puke. Elder Pennington did. haha. we had dinner at a members home yesterday. So our fast Sunday dinner. Their name is the Moutama's we have actually had dinner with them for 3 Sundays in a row now. Its an older couple. They are both Niuean, so Elder Pennington loves them!!! Back to the story. So we sat down and started eating and they filled us right up! We ate so much. Ham, Tarro, Corn Beef, Rolls, Chop Suie. So much food! then they brought out dessert! Chocolate log and cream and peaches. So good! Then we ate that and then they made us Milo. So Milo is Basically Hot Chocoa. but its not as sweet. so you put sugar and cream into it. but we were drinking that and Elder Pennington drank his cup super fast, which was not good for him. haha. We kept talking and Elder Pennington kept burping and it was super weird, then he asked if he could use the bathroom. they told him where it was and he stood up to go and he threw up!! He caught it in his hands and then went to the bathroom and finished in the toilet. I couldn't stop laughing!
So we met with our Investigator, Feagai. You say it Fayungi. He's super cool! He loves cars too!! We went to his house to see him and Sina (They are getting married in December, She's the RM). We met with Sina at their house and then they called the next day to make an appointment for later that night. So we met with them at 4 that night, and he is a hard out Christian. So we talked about Prophets and The Book Of Mormon. After an Hour and a Half of answering questions and talking about the Book Of Mormon mostly he said "There is only one word to describe how i feel, and that word is Believe." HE SAID HE BELIEVES THAT THE BOOK OF MORMON IS TRUE!!!! Like just from us explaining it!!! it was so cool! But him and Sina are going to Samoa on the 12th so we will have to wait for them to get back to meet with them again. At the end of the lesson we were walking out, and he was showing me pictures of his cars, he told us that he has a friend that is a member that lives down the street. We didn't know him so he must be less active! So we went to that house to meet his friend Alvin, that night!
We went over to the house and they (Alvin and Cheryl, his wife) were surprised to see us! They said they moved in 2 months ago and didn't know that anyone knew they lived there. So we talked to them for a little while and they both said they wanted to go back to church but just haven't. Cheryl is a convert from 2009. So we said we would help them however we can. So we planned a FHE with them this Thursday! That was an exciting day!
So last week we did a lot of door knocking. We usually do 1-2 hours a day. I am trying hard to get good at it but its hard. Some people are nice and will talk to us, but lots just turn us away when they see we are missionaries. Most people are pretty nice about it though. Nothing to crazy yet.
We have a member in our ward that is semi crazy... He is an old guy. But last Monday he woke us up at 5:30!!!!! He thought that we would be up! He said that he felt inspired to talk to us and he wants to talk to every person on his street with us... It was weird. So we said we would call him if we had some time.
So my spiritual thought this week is about a Spiritual Marathon. There are 2 kinds of runners in a Marathon, 1. Sprinters- They start off really fast and then they run out of steam and have to stop then sprint again and stop and start and stop. 2. Slow and Steady- They start off at a nice easy pace. They just run all the time and finish the race. So what do you want to be? Do you want to have big bursts of spiritual stuff and then nothing. Or Lots of little things all the time?
Love you all!
