this week was interesting. i think i blew out the emergency brake on my truck. whoopsie.

this week has been pretty good. we've been pretty busy. the mission president came to santo on wednesday and thursday so. i picked him up from the air port and he took us back to my apartment and took pictures of like. everything. commenting that this was one of the more clean apartments that he'd seen. woot.

as a maintenance elder, i've learned to fix stuff vanuatu style. aka if it works, don't touch it. doesn't gotta be pretty. so the solar batteries up in palon got overcharged when lightening stuck the solar panels. so we grounded some of the charge by connecting the batteries to the chainlink fence and throwing a smallish pig at the fence. #legendary.
this week we had 2 famili haos nites or in english. family home evenings. lots of food. lots of driving around in our car. driving makes everything like 900 times faster and more comfortable. we can cover all the appointments in our whole big area much faster by cutting down the travel time between appointments. #effective

one of the recent converts in our area has a little brother. and this little brother(like 17 years old) and his 2 friends(also teenage?) are super interested in the gospel and 'takem stadi witim yutufala' and so we started teaching them and they're basically the best people ever. cuz i can relate to them cuz i was just a teenager like. last year. and i can tell when they're listening or spacing out and they actually read the pamphlets and stuff we give them and basically they're the best people ever.

what is there to say? i need a haircut. i also acquired a slowcooker aka crock pot so all the food i cook is gonna be cooked in there now. easier, tastier, ect....

that's all for now. didn't really take any pix this week. busy busy..
