ALOOOOOHA! March 21, 2011
Marlina's baptism, what an awesome day!
Boy howzit?! Things are going just great out here for us! We had a solid week and they are just flying by! Soon as we know it March Madness is going to be over and we will be all the way into April. Sounds like all is well back home, my Cougs are doing pretty solid eh? The weather is pretty nice, its getting hotter and hotter now and it rains like mad up here in Laie!
Saturday was Marlina's baptism and it was amazing! Man she was so excited to get baptized and when they day came all went smoothly. She has a great ward that fellowships very well so she is going to have a lot of success in this church. It truly is a blessing to see these people come into the Gospel and make the changes in their lives. Its wonderful to see how they really become converted to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and not just the people in the Church, because that is what it is all about. Her and her husband are now on the path to working towards the temple, its pretty special! I love this work, and baptisms is what makes every heart ache and struggle worth it. Thats not what it is all about, but it sure makes it easier haha.
So Thursday was a crazy day for us tho. My companion had to be rushed to the ER in Kaneohe because of a false alarm. All is well with him and he walked into the hospital as healthy as he walked out! It was a little scary, but all is good, that was a very interesting experience.
The work is moving forward, we have some more training this week. I absolutely love serving up here in Laie in case anyone was wondering. The sisters are great and have such an amazing spirit. I couldn't ask for a better place to serve and the Lord really blessed me by placing me up here to serve. I could serve here my entire mission and be completely satisfied. So yes, I love my area haha.
Love you all!
Thank you--I always love getting packages!
