8/15/16 Back at it again!!

Another week here in the mish and its been awesome!!!!!

How's the fam doing!?!? Mom no worries about last week, for real! It was totally fine!! Stuff like that is goning to happen...especially when I go to Upolu or Savaii...sometimes internet goes down and missionaries can't email...but anyways!!! 

Yeah got a couple of emails from Bishop the last couple weeks! I sent him an update last week and that's probably what he read during Sacrament meeting!! Haha right on with the Olympics!! Someone said they're goning to be in Tokyo in 2020!! Is that right!?! Wish we could have watched the rugby!! I'm craving it!!

We haven't had the ward cricket yet...its this Saturday! We're going to confirm things on Tues with our taitai misiona for Saturday so we'll see how it goes!!

Haha right on with Cade!! That's very cool!! What did he take his ie for!?? 

Yeah the one we did for the Shafermeyers is called the Tika Tonu....but that one isn't for like a football..that one is more of a respectful Haka...if you want a War haka, look up the haka the All Blacks do before international matches, then you'll find the one you are looking for!! Sorry I don't have a lot of history on it...all I know is that whenever there was a war in New Zealand, they would do the haka to scare there enemies, BEFORE there was bloodshed, but I think if they needed to fight, then they would...sorry I don't have a lot, all I know is there are heaps of Haka's, they all just have different words and actions! 

So this week was crazy!! In a good way!! We had a district meeting with the President and his wife with the ZL's!! we had to ask some families to help for lunch because it was here in our area at our falesa, but it went so welll and the families were so bomb!!! They helped heaps and we got them little thank yous afterwards!! So, for the actual meeting, we went over the Doctrine of Christ, which can be found in...
2 Nephi 31
Alma 7
3 Nephi 11
3 Nephi 27
And I think there's one more, but I can't remember for the life of me! Anyway, we were all given a lesson, the Restoration, Plan of Salvation, Gospel of Jesus Christ, Word of Wisdom or Law of Chastity, and we had to put in the Doctrine of Christ to each one!! It was phenomenal!!!

And then, this is actually a challenge for EVERYONE!!
We were challenged to take each principle of the Doctrine of Christ and find a scripture that not just has the word in it, but you could use as a definition or an example of someone using it, in EVERY 1 of the 15 books of the Book of Mormon!!!
So first one is Faith
then Repentance
Receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost
Endure to the End
And last but not least, the Atonement!
So one scripture to back up all of these in EVERY book of the Book of Mormon!! So 15 each!!

We couldn't get a hold of Chris this week, but Fetu got a bapismal date for the 27th of this month!!! We're super pumped for him!! He and his family will be able to go to the temple next year around this time, so go to the temple!!! Super excited for them!!! And then we have the ward cricket day and Saturday and hopefully help bring in heaps of less actives and non members!!

Love You so much and hope You have a beautiful week!!!(:
