Family...How are you doing!??

So sorry...Our pdays have been changed to Wednesday over in our mission. That's why you didn't receive a letter on Sunday...our Monday!  Whats going on?? Whats happening?? The pics from the snowshoeing looked so fun! haha!  

Well, so this week and half is beginning to bring in the blessings that we waited a whole transfer for! We're both staying here in Faala so we'll be able to reap the benefits of our sowing! We have 4 baptisms planned for this week, Moaga, Salio, Francine, and Lina! Moaga is almost 30, and when we found him he was having a very hard time. Through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, he has turned 180 degrees and is consistently at church. He is strong and learning to have great faith and standing up for himself with his family of another religion. Salio, Francine, and Lina are all going to get baptized this Saturday too! They're all just little guys 12, 12, and 9, but they are very smart and understand and feel the love our Heavenly Father and Savior have for each of them! Really excited for all of them!! 

Nothing absolutely life changing happened this week, but I do want to share this. There's is a MASSIVE church history book we found in our house that goes over the whole church history beginning in the late 1700's! And it shares a lot on Joseph Smith Jr... the 14 yr. old boy that with the power and authority of God, went on to become 2nd behind Jesus Christ, in shaping the world for the Second Coming of our Savior, through the Restoration of his gospel! I can't really put my finger on it, but it just brings me so much joy to read about Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon which he translated with the power and authority of God! I just feel really AMAZING! And at district meeting we all wrote our testimonies about the Book of Mormon, and it was just a really nice time to contemplate and strengthen my testimony by writing it down! Which is a really nice thing for investigators, because if they can gain a testimony of the Book of Mormon, then that leads to a testimony of Joseph Smith as a prophet called of God to restore the Church of Jesus Christ, meaning the true church of God, is now upon the earth, and more than 15 million of Gods children are working to spread it to the 4 corners of the earth! Incredible, isn't it?? I'm just so thankful to be apart of it! 

Hope you are all doing great! Sorry its a little late, love you and can't wait to here whats happening!!

PS. We were walking to some homes and came across these HUGE PIGS, just chillin like villains.
PPS. We bought tons of saimini, but it expired and made us sick, so we kind of made a little bit of a mess in the house.  haha

Nothing like a good coconut find on Pday!
