Tons of crazy stuff happened this week with investigators and stuff but I don't have a lot of time to write about it all...so I'll just write about a few random things:
I GOT A BABY NAMED AFTER ME (kinda...) so last week we had fafanga at the Bishop's house and while we were over there eating we found out that the wife was at the hospital and had just given birth. We were a little confused about why the family was still at home and then we realized that they were waiting for us to come and eat! (Yeah, feeding the missionaries is super important to some people). We got mad at them for waiting for us--THEIR LITTLE BROTHER WAS JUST BORN! I got mad at Bishop. haha. And we shoveled down the rest of our food and left. We came back a couple days later and saw the cutest little baby boy EVERR! And we asked what his name was. And guess what they named him? Thomas Lucas Reid Matu (Tomasi Lukasi Liti Matu) I was dying!! The middle name Lucas is after my companions brother that they always joke about marrying their daughter. Man, it made my day!
We had a special Sister Trainer's meeting this week with President and Sister Tupou. It was wonderful! They shared the sweetest testimony with us... They finish on Thursday!
The mission is wonderful! I'm so so blessed to be here. I feel so much joy every single day from this work. Just a thought: Don't ever pray again to help the missionaries find people to teach but rather pray for you to find someone for the missionaries to teach. Member Missionary Work is the way to go! Hope you all have a fantastic week.
