so this week went by really quick. cuz wednesday and thursday were eaten by zone conference. really great conference. president granger is the bomb diggity. like he's the best. even though he's Australian. hahhhh jk. Australians are cool too. but this zone conference was about becoming. really great. really helped me to re focus and stuff. cuz coming to a new area, new squad of missionaries to chill with on p day, new companions, it's really easy to get out of focus. focusing on other stuff. cuz that's what satan is trying to do. if he can't get you off the right path by sin he just sends lil distranctions here and there until the amount of good we do is weakened. anywho.
on p day, one of the perks of getting assigned to serve in vila town is you can go to the mission office on p day! and they have board games! i played some rousing games of foosball and ping pong volleyball and battleship. BATTLESHIP. woot.
so! some of the people we're working with. there's a dude named kassy we're working with. super chill dude. been coming to church since he was like a baby. literally. but for some reason, his biological mom had always blocked him from getting baptized. so me and my comps come and she has apparently just. changed her mind? i dunno? she lives on a different island? sweet. so he's gonna get baptized this saturday. he's the greatest. he helped fix my bike. woot.
also! for those of you who aren't well versed in vanuatu culture, it's a very patriarchal society. literal chiefs and can't do anything unless oldfala man says it's chill. so we're working with this one lil family and they the best. the only thing is that the dude's dad lives in the bUSH in santo like you gotta hike for two hours to get to the road and then call a transport and pay 50$ to get to town bush. so this little family wants to get baptized but they not married so they gotta wait for oldfala from the bush. and they've been waiting for months now and guess. who. just came on friday. THE OLDFALA THATS WHO so they gonna get married. it's gonna be grand. i can't wait.
life is good. it's fall right now down here in the southern hemisphere so. it feels amaze.
