Alright so before I answer any questions I just want to say that this past week has probably been the best week of my life. No word of a lie, I cannot begin to explain or even comprehend the things that I have learned in this past week. Elder Mafuli is the man and has taught me so very much. He taught me how to love, to truly love and how to be the best missionary and person that I can possible be. I don't know how to explain and I wish I had more time to write and just explain the things that I feel right now, it is truly amazing. Do you remember the movie limitless? That's kind of how I feel right now, like I honestly feel like I can change the world and that one person can make a difference, One thing that I really tried to focus on this week is being obedient and something that came to mind is Obedience is contagious, one person can make a difference and change not only the attitude of missionaries but the attitude of the other people and all those around him. I really love being a missionary right now and Jenrok is the best area that I have ever been in, in my life. The people are so welcoming and I feel like I already have a family there and I have literally been there for a week, so it's kind of cool and I'm grateful for everyone who has been helping me out. Remember that kind of shy kid that was afraid to be himself and didn't exactly know where he fit in? Well that kid is gone, I talk to literally everyone now, it doesn't matter big, small, tall, short, brown, white, whatever, everyone is now my new best friend and it's amazing the way that I see life right now. I know God has put me here right now for a reason, I know he has made me a leader for a reason and I know that I can do things I can't even begin to understand. I feel like that one small thing could change the attitude of the mission because frankly there has been a war between the islanders and the white people and I want to stop it. We're all on the same team and if we get united we will be able to do so much, because there is so much work to do here. I want to be the change and make the change, anyways so that's that. Sorry if that's kind of a lot to take in, but that's what I want to do. I think that's about it, so okay now to answer some questions, I have been cooking everything, I made taquitos, bbq chick pizza and breadsticks, pasta, meatball subs, chicken tortilla breakfast wraps and some breaded fish with fresh lime. Slightly different than the outer island food and I have so many stories and things to share with you I don't think I can share them all, but I have never had so much fun being a missionary. Plus since I've been here my district has had 4 baptisms and are just getting so much stuff done, it's incredible, I honestly don't think it's impossible to get like 20 baptisms in a month like it's awesome.
Lots of lovin'
