Lalovi and Manono

So a lot has changed Mommy Jones. Elder Afuvai is all the way back in washington and I've got a new companion that I picked up from the airport. THe two pictures on here are with Elder Afuvai the day he left. The one of them has my old house with us two our ZL's and the two Elders that are going to be serving in Tuana`i now because I got transferred to Lalovi. Crazy huh? I know. Our area is huge!!!!!!!! WE cover Lalovie, Satuimalufilufi, Apolima uta, Manono Uta, and Manono tai. Its a total of a 2 wards and a Sunday school thats going to be a branch soon...Its nuts. Plus just reading this you don't even know thta Manono tai is one of those smaller islands inbetween the two big ones of Savaii and Upolu. CRAZY HUH? I KNOW. All is well though we've just been getting familiar with the area. Luckily we have bikes because I would not want to walk all of this day to day. You should look it up on a map... THis area is HUGE!!!! I really do love it so far though. WE have a freat ward mission leader who's been a huge help and the rest of the memebers we've metare great so far!
My new Soa Elder Sewell is from North Dakota but he grew up in Philadelphia. Hes a really cool guy. He worked on, in... an oil field for the last year and 8 months I think it was... Crazy huh? He turns twenty a day after I turn 19 so He's like basically and old man already. ;) He's a good guy thoguh. He's handling all the beautiful messes Samoa has had in store for him so far and I'm super proud of him. He's sure making my job as a trainer pretty easy. Thats pretty much it for the change... 
The week was cool too. Monday through half of Wednesday was in my last area, the other half of monday was spent with Elder fifita and his tongan trainee, and then from late in the night on until now we've been in our new area. So much new and different to experience. The new area is pretty different from the last. I'm still on the main road but not nearly as close to town so theres hardly any commotion on the road all day like in my last area which is nice. Everything is a ton more peaceful and I'm enjoying it so far but its also weird to not have all the sound... Oh yeah!!! The night I got my companion We all went to a hotel and ate at a place called Aggie Grays. It was cool Just six of us where we did a little mini training session with president and the ZL's. We got so spoiled! That place was like the nicest place I've ever been it feels like. It didn't even seem like Samoa anymore. Its a super nice hotel resort thing. Sooo cool! 

Afuvai is all the way on the left.. THe other one took too long to load sooo yeah... sorry.... THis one took like 25 minutes to load. I love ya tons mom and family!!! Take care outthere in Utah and just keep praying for my Soa and I to be able to accomplish thats in store in our new area. I'm always praying for you guys!!!! I love love love ya all!!!!!

  2. I met Elder Sewell in the New Zealand airport briefly. He seemed excited to get to work. I hope they're getting along great.
