this week went by really quick.

so i forgot my planner when i came to email so i don't know exactly what i did this week but i'll try and remember. sooooo my companion feels that he is gaining weight and therefore putting himself at risk of death. which is false anatomically speaking for the most part considering our age and amount of physical activity. but anyways. he doesn't want to eat rice anymore but 'good' food. such as kumala and island cabbage and taro and such. because islanders here just naturally have almost 6 packs so he's envious and changing his diet to match the islanders. 

we went to the freshwota market and all
that food was about 700 vatu. or 7$ USD
anyway. we went and bought some stuff and some mamas who had lots of charity for us gave us a bunch of radishes and we still haven't eaten them all. radishes are in a way, spicy. also kumala is basically sweet potato. blessings and blessings. 

we have one investigator who has really been progressing. his name is bryan and he's really awesome. all other missionaries should be jealous of my investigator. he's amazing. im so grateful that i get to teach him. 

so this week was also stake conference. in america that doesn't mean that much. as far as who comes wise. cuz there's stake activities all the time. but here, the stake is all of vanuatu. so... stake conference means general authority(s), mission president, and all that. it was super super amazing. felt the spirit in every session i attended. met a elder Johannsen(idk if that's how you spell it) of the 70. another spiritual giant i've met to look up to. everything he said in every session was so powerful and awesome. everything that is taught here is super simple and powerful. partially because the people need the simple and powerful, and partially because that's what they're struggling with the most. making me reevaluate what it means to be a member of this church and how to become a better one. my investigator bryan came to the last session and it was so awesome. i think he took some really good notes and i hope and pray that what he heard answers and helps to resolve his concerns.

in alma 18? it says that the father of king lamoni was astonished at how much love ammon had for his son. and so ammon=missionary. lamoni= investigator. goal, love my investagators so much it astonishes their family into wanting to hear our message. 

working on being more faithful. working on doing my best to ask heavenly father for what i need. if i need a stain to come out of a shirt, pray for that. and have faith enough for it to happen. it's really hard but i'm trying. 

thank you all for reading my letters. i don't know all that much about what's going on in the land of stars and stripes but thank you for your support. 

that's all for now.
