Happy Easter everyone!!
This week was a pretty slow one. But to start it off we had Zone P-Day last monday, which means all the missionaries in our zone got together and played games and had fun. We played tennis and footie for a few hours and really had a great time!
Tuesday night was hilarious. We do something called "Rescue Night" where the ward and missionaries go out and visits less-actives. The point is to talk to them, see how they're going, and kind of remind them they are cared about. So we went to this one less-active's house and Brother Labalaba was our driver. We go up to the door and Brother Labalaba knows this guy so he stands in front and knocks on the door. The man's daughter answers the door and says he's not home. Instead of trying to talk with her (also a less-active) he just says "oh, okay! Well nice to see you!" And we walk away... We get in the car and he takes us back to the church and leaves! Rescue night is supposed to be an hour or so long and we got done in 10 minutes! hahaha Brother Labalaba is a crack up!
Saturday, we had a baptism in our ward. It was for an 8 year old daughter of one of the members and it went really well. It was cool to see her get baptized. We had a HUGE feed afterwards. Normally, in America, you have some ice cream or maybe cookies after. NOPE, not for islanders! We had four long tables full of food, two tables with lollies (candy), one table of fruit, and the kitchen full of ice cream and beverages! It was awesome!
Last bit of exciting information for you is this. I got a haircut. Elder Makihele cut it and he's a pro! He cut it shorter than I've ever had it before, on the sides, and it doesn't look to bad... I hope ;) I'll send a pic next week if I remember!
I hope everyone remembered this important day! I am so grateful to my Savior for what he did for us. He took upon him all the sins of the world and suffered for them that night. He was in so much pain and agony that He bled from every pore! That is something we cannot even fathom! No one else could have done that but Jesus. He made it possible that we can return home to our loving Heavenly Father and be with our families forever. I am eternally grateful and strive to make it up to Him by serving others (Mosiah 2:17) and being the best I can be.
I love you all! Have a great week!
