Favona update!

Sorry I'm late this week. All the Email shops were closed and we had to drive around and find one. Today is ANZAC day, so basically Memorial day. Its for all of the Soldiers and things like that. So heaps of stuff is closed! So that was annoying! But whateve's!

    So this week was really good! It was really fast! We had transfers this week and THANKFULLY I am still in Favona with Elder Bass! So that was actually a really great surprise! It doesn't feel like we just had transfers because I am with the same person! So that is not normal! This is the first time that I have been with a companion with more than one transfer! I'm really excited!

     Some great news this week is from the Isaako family! We had a lesson with them on Thursday, We talked about the Restoration, and Bishop came with us. So we went in with the plan to set them with a baptism date. So when we got to the end of the lesson I could hear and feel that Elder Bass wasn't going to go that way. He gets nervous about being too bold sometimes, So I could feel that he was nervous to say it. So I just went for it. I asked them to be baptized on the 14th of May. Ruban said yes. Then Melaina said yes. So we set the two of them, then Jordan isn't fully into the idea. He still wants to be baptized in the catholic church for now. So we will be changing that! The only issue is that Melaina isn't married. So we have to work on getting them married before she can be baptized. Just keep them in your prayers please!

     We got to take out one of our YSA to do some visits with us. He is a RM from Australia. He is living over here with his auntie and studying. So we went to visit some less actives. Its 2 20ish year old girls. Their parents moved to Australia and they stayed. So we took Wyatt (The YSA) to visit them and when we went in we found out that they are Cousins!!! (Not that big of a surprise... Everyone over here is related!) So we taught them The Gospel of Jesus Christ, about Repentance, Faith, Baptism, The Holy Ghost, and Enduring to the End. So it was cool to get to FINALLY get in and teach them again! They are really funny and great girls! We will be hopefully seeing them again tonight! 

      Oh so some BIG NEWS! (not really that big...) Our Bishop was SOOOO excited on Sunday at church to get to announce that our ward has a new name! We are not the Favona Road Ward any more, We are now the Favona First Ward. It was really weird how excited he was. It shows potential for more wards to branch off of us! But for now nothing really has changed.

 Love you!

Love Elder Seelos
