This week has been so crazy... it is very hard to get 16 samoans to a baptism and then sacrament meeting the next day to get confirmed... but this week we were blessed greatly and helped 3 different families come closer to God by following Jesus Christ. The hakai family is a father and a daughter they were a part member family that we found at a inactive members house. They were ready for the gospel and were baptized this week.
The fotu family is a family of 5 that just got here from samoa we found them the last week of may taught them and they were also baptized. Crazy story tho... The father Iopia got antied the night before the baptism and we luckily the spirit led us to visit them that night with our ward mission leader. We resolved all of his concerns and he agreed to get baptized... but like 5 min til game time with his suit already on he totally decided he wasnt going to do it. Our mission president and his wife were there so we decided to go have a kneeling prayer in another room asking the lord for help. The second we walked out of the room he had a smile on his face and was ready to get baptized.
THe next family we found knocking another part member family Kolose (homeless and was taken in by the aitia family) and Jonathan Aiatia. kolose is super quiet but loves god and wanted to change his life so he did the best thing that he couldve and got baptized quit smocking and drinking and law of chastity issues to get dunked. Jonathan is 9 years old sweetest little kid got baptized too. His dad didnt want to support his decision but he decided to do it anyways pretty cool for a lil 9 year old kid. He absolutely loved his baptism and loves primary.
At sacrament meeting the next day we confirmed the hawki fam Johnathan and kolose. the fotu family was late we werent sure if they were going to make it but right after sacrament they showed up and we were able to confirm them as well. We didnt have any time for testimonies... hahaha best sacrament meeting ever. It is one of the coolest things to confirm someone a member of the church and give them the holy ghost.
Also my mish president is way tight with Johnny miller a famous golfer and commentator he is speaking to us on saturday he will be here for the US open and the coolest part of it all is that he gave us tickets to go to it... So look out for us on tv!!!!
