Bulabula Vinaka!

Hawaiians in Suva!


bula mama!

this week was a pretty good week. i've seen the blessings of doing service. every thursday we do service from 8-12. so we ask members, investigators, and random people sometimes if we can help them with anything in their home or around their home or anything. anyway, this thursday we went and did service for a less active family. we scrubbed their walls and ceilings in their home. they weren't home when we did it and we never saw them after that, so we didnt know if we did a good enough job for them or not. well sunday came and the whole family came to church!! i was so happy to see them. it showed me that service is worth a lot more than words.

we also tried to contact a lot of referrals this week. we got a lot of referrals for part member families and so that's what we're working on right now. part member families are the best because you already have a member present at every lesson. so refer the part member families in our ward to the missionaries!!!!!!!

also.....one night this week we had dinner at a family's house that is like way super super nice!! like a mansion!! but we went over there with our mission president and his wife for dinner because they'll be leaving this saturday. i can't believe how fast time has gone by. last i remember, they still had one month left, but in the blink of an eye it's the end of june already and we'll be getting a new mission president on saturday. we'll see how it goes but im positive that he'll be amazing! ill miss pres. and sis. klingler but i know that everything in life happens for a reason. but ill miss them so much!! 

as for our investigators. we have a baptism coming up this week. a mom and a dad will be baptized and then their daughter will be baptized later on. hopefully by that time her father will have the priesthood and will be able to baptize her. it would be so special if he did. 

FOB MOMENT OF THE WEEK- we were eating at a rotuman family's home yesterday and i was asking them to teach me some rotuman words. as they told me i would write them down and at one point i was trying to ask them to tell me another word but what came out instead was, "what else word?" they all just started laughing and i that's when i knew that my english was getting really bad hahahaha!! im working on it!!

au lomani kemudou!! loloma yani! kalougata tiko :)

loloma levu,
sista chong
