All is going well out here on Fanning Island. I am really enjoying myself. I am so used to the life here on outer islands and I am enjoying every moment of it.
We were able to baptize a young couple this last week, which was awesome to see and a way cool experience. It was my first time doing a baptism in the ocean since last July! I think that we are going to be having some more baptisms in the next couple of weeks, which is way great! We are starting to clear up a lot of time for finding new investigators so all is going well. We have gotten a little bit of help on the paperwork for the marriages that need to be performed, but we still need to get a few of them figured out, which has been really hard. We still need a lot more help if we are going to get things done.
This week was a little hard because we had to leave our area for a day and a half to help out with transfers since one of the elders on the other side of the island had to leave. We are working in a threesome until his new companion comes in a week and a half. Hopefully this week we will be able to stay in our area and go on splits so that we will be able to get more done.
Last week we went fishing but didn't catch tons of fish... I think that we are going to be going again today and that we should be able to catch some more.. it should be fun.
Time is flying by... I'm currently almost finished with 1 Samuel in the Old Testament and I love it. I don't know why I never read the Old Testament before.
Love you all. Have a great week!
