THANK YOU ALL FOR DOING THAT WHAT A BLESSING!! Tell tu stop giving up on his dad because the Lord didnt give up on tu! Thank you for going to nias endowment she is glowing already and looks so good (but never as good as Sister Luitai lol) yeah she told me about her grandpa so fakaofa i feel sorry for uncle tuai!! send my love to him. Oh and thank you for going to the temple as well magaling 🙂 Im going later on today!
Anyways this week has been an up and down week, the start of the week was really good was just like every other start of the week! The provo batch came last friday so they could go with the Senior Batch and all other missionaries on wednesday and they were so cool to hang out with 6 of them were tongan girls out of the 10 girls that came so we all clicked straight away. One is from Teekiu she knows ipu and oyoy (Sister Latu) and One is from Fua’motu and she knows uncle pita and she was there when papa went for that thing in tonga (Sister Tongi) how crazy is that!!
But i love Sister Tongi she was the only one from the provo batch that actually came from tonga to MTC in provo and i just felt so sorry for her she was in a trio with two palangi’s and they none did heads but man there so lucky she is so nice and humble (thats from her Fua’motu side oua, she said she got homesick all the time because they would recieve letters and packages everyday and she wouldnt, how sad is that!! so honestly if you guys are going to send something to me just send it to her im ok trust me, Sister Tongi and shes serving in Tacloban Mission i feel so fakaofa for her!!
the reason why this week was so bad was because i had to say goodbye to my brother this week man it was by far the hardest thing ive ever had to do apart from saying good bye to you guys!! We tried to do everything together for his last week like we were literally always within sight of each other at the temple too we just didnt want to miss out on anything this last week of doing stuff together!!! The last day we didnt have anything together because they probably had a busy schedule being his last day and everything, but we had dinner together and he came and gave me shorts and yep i already started tearing up then but sister taofi quickly clapped me out of it lol but we had physical activity and he had a fireside on so we planned to meet eachother after to say goodbye because he was leaving early morning and wouldnt catch him and we did he came out when i finished and then we had to say goodbye man it was so hard!!! It was so funny though because we looked up at each other before saying bye and saw that we both were tearing up so we cried more haha we honestly couldnt let go of eachother we just kept hugging each other and even our last goodbye he high fived me and we just didnt want to let go!!!
Honestly mum he is not the same boy that left, his testimony is so strong now like everyone in his group say that he is the best teacher out of all of them like they cant even believe it because you know Elder Hopoate and his jokes lol but honestly i was so sad and guttered when i had to say bye to him but he quickly reminded me in a letter that he wrote in my book that everything was going to be okay!! Im going to miss seeing him around, but i know where ever he goes they are so blessed to have him, words cant even describe how proud i am of the change this boy now man has made from the short time being with him here!! Its so funny he wrote ‘Sister Hopoate (because thats better then your one now toks’ haha man i love that kid so much!! he couldnt stop crying the boys from my district were telling me when he went back up to the room!!
but anywaysssssssssss apart from that it was a really good rest of the week i was able to go practice teaching at the temple so my companions and i decided to try and talk to anyone and everyone we meet and honestly we did do that i wasnt even scared as well, i met a girl from micronesa who travelled 7 hours with her family to be sealed with them for all time and eternity!!! i also met a little boy (first little boy ive spoke to) he reminded me so much of Anthony and thats all i kept thinking of while speaking to him, his name is Jaylo didnt really know how to speak english but man made me miss anthony so much!! but yeah my week has been good just trying to do the little things this week in everything i do like studying and that you know. but i can feel all your prayers and thats what gives me strength every single day honestly. we go proselyting on saturday for the first time and everyone has told me to just love it and just keep my mind open because i will witness alot of things so get ready for my email next week lol
oh nearly forgot remember sister latu i was speaking about (elder taufa’s) cousin well her companion Sister Fisitalia shes from ha’akame came with literally nothing honestly if she was my size i would of given her clothes but shes a big girl, anyways i gave her my bag mum because she didnt even have a bag how fakaofa is that!!!! when i gave it to her she was crying so much because she thought it was too nice to give away (its was just the brown one i bought) but man my heart felt so warm in being able to do that like because i love her like its not like i had to serve her i did it because i wouldnt want anyone especially from my motherland that cant have what i have if that makes sense. so sad saying bye to her she kept crying and saying thank you for mea ofa but honestly felt so good!!!
Anyways How is everyone at home? Hows papa and nana have you heard from them yet? How are you mum and dad? Thank you for working so hard and sacrifices everything for me and my siblings i love you mum and dad so much (ps i didnt use, use) lol My commitment this week is to do everything you do this week with ‘NO REGRETS’ just like you guys im doing that same commitment except im doing it for my whole mission. Mission President really emphasized about the importance of doing things with no regrets especially as a missionary!!! but if everyone could go to school, work, sport, seminary but especially church with no regrets this week that would be great and you guys will love it as well!!
I Love You All so much and always think of you guys be safe!!
ps Send my love to my favourite uncle i didnt forget his birthday and tell him i love him so much!! oh and also theres this sister coming from tonga on friday her name is Sister Mohetau and the girls from tonga were telling me shes from nukunuku lol
