Ae mea sili a le ua fetaia'i i le aso nei ma tuuina atu se tama'i tala a mea ua tupu i le vaiaso ua te'a!!!!

HEY FAM!! How goes it this beautiful Monday morning!?!?! 
Well, transfers were last week, sorry I didn't get a chance to email, he didn't want to email and we were all over the eria faamavaeing with families! But all is well! 

This week, my comp got transfered and guess who my new comp is.....
ELDER RAROTOGA!!! INTAKE... THROW IT UP SON!!!!!! (An intake is one of the group of Elders that served in the MTC together.) 
Haha sorry just really excited!!! He's been in Fusi, around the corner in Savaii! But goodness, I do want to talk a bit about what I learned from E Taulolo..
CULTURE! He got me really into the culture with the langauge, fe'au, families, and I'm grateful, very grateful!! One thing that I always go to when I start getting frustrated with someone, I think of Pres Uchtdorf's talk, I believe last conference...speaking of marriages, but this applies great for missionaries too....

 “Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.” It fits nicely with its scriptural companion: “Seek, and ye shall find.”
If we look for imperfections in our companion or in our companionship, we will certainly find them, because everyone has some. On the other hand, if we look for the good, we will surely find it, because everyone has many good qualities too.
It's been kind of a roller coaster, but heaps of things to learn to say the least! Humbling!
I'm with E Rarotoga now though, and it's so nice to go back to putting in work! It was difficult to get E Taulolo going just cause he's finishing in January and didn't quite have the drive anymore! But it's all good, I learned a lot! We went to Vaitoomuli, because we wanted to get a baptism there before the end of the month, the only thing is that there hasn't been one there the entire year, since about this time last year. But we found almost 10 new people to teach in 2 days we were over and possibly a baptism with Pili, an investigator we found, she finished her lessons ages ago, but she needed to get married, got married a little bit ago, and comes to church quite often! Husband is a member, but not very active, but we're hoping this will get him back to activity!! Loving the work! Families are great over here and the Lord has been blessing us with the language!! Next Monday we have a conference with a seventy that is coming so I don't know if we'll be able to email next week, so just a heads up! Loving the work, the families, my comp, the Lord, its just awesome! Anyways, just a short update for the week! 
Love you all and hope that you had a bomb week! Glad to hear there's a new fridge! More room for the Samoan food I want to bring home!!(; Oh and with the package, yeah I've heard from missionaries to just send it to American Samoa and then the ZL's from there will bring it over to Apia when they have a conference at the MLC, and then other missionaries, usually transfers with bring over the mail or package to Savaii! And no worries, the rugby ball isn't forbidden!! Thank you so much for sending that!! And it's cheaper to send to American Samoa than to Apia, cause then it will be very expensive!! 
Anyway, love you all and hope all goes well this week! 

Love Elder Larson!!!(; xoxoxox
Look what you can do with candy sticks!!

This was a while ago, but baby pigs are the cutest! I got one named after me...Penukoko!!!!

And I'm back with INTAKE!!!!! He's from West Valley, Utah. (Intake means they served in the MTC together. Love this guy!)
