really hasnt been that long since i last emailed i guess. but heres the two big points.. baptism still didnt happen, and i got sick wednesday after emailing. haha i just realized that that makes it sound like it was a terrible week. it realy wasnt. it was just kinda slow..

so, early in the week we spoke with kailan about planning the baptism for saturday. he said he was gonna talk to his dad about it but apparently that didnt happen.. haha so on friday when i got to the library to set up the program, i found out his dad was not too happy and we did not have his permmission for saturday. so postponed yet again. we will press forward as best we can though!
as for sickness, while we were emailing wednesday i was getting a bit of a headache, then when we got home i felt cruddy all over. so i slept a couple hours, and woke up a bit after our dinner got dropped off. i ate a bit and apparently my body wasnt happy with that. so after a couple hours i finally threw up. elder tuifua came running upstairs wondering what the heck was happening. haha my vigorous yacking is apparently notable. but i slept for super long after that and the next day i felt pretty good. we kept it low key to make sure i was all good. haha but thursday night we had a lesson with a family in ward. their 7 year old is soon to turn 8. so he picked us up fro that and then dropped us off at kailans. we finished preparing him for his interview scheduled friday night – that never happened. his dad wasnt there so we didnt know he hadnt talked to him about it.
friday we had a zone training where they talked about pride the whole time. lame cause im already perfect at pride. 😉 juuust kidding. it was pretty well taught, but it went three hours and it sorta felt like they had maybe 2 hours worth of material. just kinda beating it to death after a point. a good lesson nonetheless.
saturday was a test in faith in that we were walking for a few hours straight, no one seemed to be home! haha we were following up with a few potential investigators, trying member’s homes. nothing. haha we finally got to visit with some members and share a message until dinner. after dinner we went to the calls to help them move in some new couches they got. they were tyring to get the old one down into the basement, but that wasnt gonna happen unless we used my suggestion of taking a chainsaw to the wall. sister call didnt sound particularly approving.. not sure why. hahaha
that night we went with the 3rd ward elders to sister woods. shes in their ward and does nutritionist stuff for people. a very spiritual lady and we had a lot of awesome spiritual discussion with her. really neat and she helped each of us come to know our selves a little bit better. and she gave us some suggestions as far as dieting. really cool lady.
the coolest thing was that she taught us how to meditate to help us both relieve stress and as a way to receive personal revelation. ive been doing it everyday and it feels like a little personal hour with christ. its helping me be closer to my savior and know him better. i think beginning to read jesus the christ is helping a lot too. its just been amazing to come to further realization of His love and knowledge of each of us and makes me want to work on being better and being more like him.
take care family. i love and miss you guys and know that this church is true. im extremely grateful for it every day and desire it for everyone.
