Week 8 - Talofa!

Hey everyone!
This week we got 2 more with dates! We found these two little girls who live with an inactive family. We've been teaching their whole family and committed the two girls to be baptized on November 9th!
I hope you all got to watch conference. I've never been so pumped for conference before. I really liked how some of the speakers just layed it out. They didn't sugar coat anything. Like Elder Oaks when he talked about standing up for what you know in this crazy world of constantly changing standards. I liked where he said "courage, not compromise, brings the smile of God's approval". That's really relevant to me as a missionary here because not many people, even the members choose to make church their ultimate priority. Hopefully conference was able to stir something in them.
I also found out that my companion can husk a coconut with his teeth! We had a contest between the 3 missionaries from Kiribati who could husk one the fastest. Of course my companion won. He's pretty crazy. He'll just climb coconut trees sometimes. But we have lots of fun together.
Everyone take care and stay strong!
