Aug 27,2017

So this week was a lot of fun it was a slow week for lessons cause school started this week and everyone was wanting to get back into school and then study so hopefully this week is a lot better for lessons since they have been in school for a while now.
other than that good week i ate shark again it was so good it was a tiger shark this time sooooo good i freaking love it. also i learned how to make breadfruit with coconut cream it was a lot of fun. and i learned how to cook fish on an open fire it was fun.
so this week we had a lot of changes in the mission happen cause our mission president decided to open up an outer island so we had a transfer in a transfer so two elders went out to an island called alingalaplap and then two other elders came in from the island of kirabati it was so fun to see these elder come in from kirabati except they forgot all there marshallese haha it was really funny
also we had a transfer with the sisters and my cute companion sister kamarie got transfered to long island working with sister paku and i am now working with another kirabati sister her name is sister kaotirake she is so cute i have enjoyed working with her so far. 
we also had a reilef socity music devotional that was a lot of fun very uplifting and just surrounded by love you could really feel the spirit though the people who were singing it was very nice. 
also we went to a first birthday party on saturday at our bishops house that was fun we got fed very well there we had chicken rice pork fish potato salad and breadfruit so good we got fed like kings!!!
i should also have a baptism this week this girl is my golden investigator she is absolutly amazing she is here from an outer island and she is just amazing she has so many questions and just wants to be invovled in the church she is basically an active member she just needs to be baptized 
this week was so good i love my area and my new comp cant wait to work hard with her and have some fun love you hope you all had a great week!!!!  not sure if the letter make sense because all i think about now is Marshallese. lol but i will get my English back I'm sure once i gets home.  Thanks Mom for the hats  the ones you sent me in the beginning are gone and i love baseball caps.

well this week has been another slow week due to the rain.  But i did eat SHARK and raw fish this week. it wasn't that bad either. but, hate raw fish.  still don't like the bike but it is keeping me humble. Hahaha. had the baptism on Saturday. But, forgot my camera. oh well! transfers are this week and I'm staying. so my testimony keeps on growing.  I miss the stevens and the other families that are on Ebeye. my heart misses the families i have meet so this week. I'm going to treat my self to a new dress for my 20th Birthday. they were going to have a party for me but something came up so it is canceled. But, its all good. school has started today so the work will slow up. But that just means I get to do more service.  So tried Cocount candy ti ok its not that sweet. But had fun at the party.  Might get my hair cut a little just to get the split ends off. But going to ask the senior couple if they can do it. they don't have hair cutting places here everyone has long hair or the wife cuts there hair.

ill let you know how my Birthday is next week love you all have a great week

Well this week was a really hard week I got homesick.  But, mom's Birthday package helped a little but loved all the card thank you to everyone.  So we has zone conference this week which is always super fun.  Plus i got sick this week got to love these days. hahaha - but I'm feeling better. so I was able to talk to the school here in Laura and they agreed to let us come teach one day a week. so I'm super excited. So this transfer i set a goal for my self to have 10 Baptisms and I'm going to get them. we have 5 so far fro the 2nd of September. so on my Birthday we had FHE at the bishops house for my birthday they gave me a new headband.Plus the STIL's came over and made me a cake and got me  guam. its super cute. pretty exciting.

yes transfers were this week and in staying put. I think they bike has made me humble. lol but love my area and can't wait to keep working with my amazing companion. thank you all agin for the birthday wishes and the prayers and love on my behalf.  the church is true and if you are thinking of going on a mission - just do it. you will not regret it.  well until next week. love you all.

Hello everyone

what a week my comps bike broke so we ended up walking a lot more than we would like too. you know you have walked a lot when your legs feel like they are going to fall off at the end of the day.  lol but i wouldn't change it for the world. It was a very slow week.  I did service and mowed someones lawn and then we had a ward activity which are always fun.  So for today we will be going into the main part of the island to go shopping. i might get a few dresses made for me. things in my area are super expensive. So I'm hope the will be ready for my birthday. Other than that we are suppose to have Baptism this week. it is a sweet boy from a part member family. he is so sweet and we have so much fun teaching the family.  Were teaching a few other families. so fingers crossed they accept baptism dates. but other than that the work is slow.  Im so blessed to have such great support and love from family and friends on  my mission. thank you so much for all the love and prayers on my behalf everyday. well until next week. Goo luck kaitlyn on your soccer stuff this week.
