This is Tima. We found her the other day and she is SO golden. The aunt of Sister Vasu, who is serving in the other Lautoka ward. SMALL world. Anyway, we call her na, which means mom in Fijian. Such a sweet lady. If all goes according to plan, she'll be getting baptized by the end of the month.
This us having lunch with Adi, a recent convert. She desperately wants me and the elder who taught and baptized her to get married. She always talks about it and convinced me to print a picture of me and him out for her. She has it up on her wall now.
Hi. Guess what a dog chewed up my Chacos. My heart broke. But don't worry about replacing them. I got some knock-off WHAT DO YOU CALL THOSE SANDALS THAT MOM THINKS ARE REALLY UGLY that suit me just fine.I am now halfway through my mission. Suddenly I realize how short my time here really is. It's a bittersweet feeling. Not only that, but transfers are coming up, and I have a feeling that I might be transferred. I don't want to. I love Lautoka so much. In this place I have learned so much about myself and my Savior, Jesus Christ. I want to stay here for the rest of my mission. I want my district to stay the same, my zone to stay the same. No one get transferred for nine more months, please. I especially love my companion. Training her has had it's ups and downs, but somehow she seems to be morphing nicely into a regular missionary. Not because of me. She is learning through her own initiative. I love her. I'm sad that I probably won't see her after the mission. Good old Sister E. It's funny, she may be a few months older than me, but we really are like mother and daughter. She even says I act older than her. But man we have fun. Me forcing her into situations that make her uncomfortable but make me laugh. And then we both laugh and she is grateful that I did it.
ANYWHO not much has been going on. But basically I love you people and I GOTTA GO BYE...
