Hey guys, this is going to be a wayyy quick update.
Last week wasn't our best week in terms of teaching, but we had three solid baptisms and I'm super grateful for how it all turned out. Takaio is so solid and it was so awesome to see him come into the waters of baptism and to overcome his biggest fears. Toora and Kamwakin were also great and it was just a great baptismal service to see Takoa (our Recent Convert) baptize Toora and bring her unto Christ. This week our branch also had a Christmas party and it was a good opportunity to gather with the members and to eat and to have fun. The end of the year is coming up so quickly but Elder Peeti and I believe that we can make some things happen in the next few weeks.
Tony and Tiebo are still the most golden family that I have taught on my mission. They fasted this past week and have overcome the Word of Wisdom and they came to church again. They are just working on their marriage and they should be set for the 31st of December. We think that we could have a potential of four baptisms on the 31st if all goes well. It would be a great way to end the year. All missionaries in the mission will be coming to Tarawa and it will be great to see some old faces and to have a chance to prepare for President Haleck, a member of the Seventy who is coming on the 30th of this month. All is well and I love you guys! Hit me up with a line! Merry Christmas from the Central Pacific!
