Zone conference 12/1812016

I love being so close to the water all day long this is the best area so far because the waves actually break on the shore everywhere else they break like half a mile out off the coast because of the reef.

 So heres to answer your question about what my companion looks like. This is just a couple little memories from the last couple of weeks.
One is of us planning at night e had changed out of our clothes because we walked home in the rain to do our weekly planning so we just hung it all up to dry and put on those. 
The other is of our zone conference which was really just a district conference because President doesn't let disobedient missionaries come to meetings so we had heaps of people not attend. It was still a great time though. We had our meeting at a super nice Chinese restaurant in town, and then went shopping at the market and finished with caroling at the hospital. WE had a good time.

December 11th 2016

So Elder Tauiliili and I were having a great Monday and all was well w were both about to take a little nap before having a FHE with a family and a bunch of cute kids then Elder Afualo calls us and says I'm getting transferred... I was so bumbed!!!!! WE had just started to work well together and were seeing eye to eye and now He's gone. Plus I had to pack everything in like like 1 hour but all my clothes were still hanging up to dry... Lame! But I'm here now and happy about it all because the area is awesome and my companion is sweet too. his name is Elder Johnson from Las Vegas and hes been out for 4 months. I really just think God likes to put me with newbies because I've only had one old guy and that was Afuvai but only for one transfer... I'm not complaining though all the new guys always want to do the work so they just make things super easy, the only downside is its hard for them to teach and communicate but its becoming normal and I feel like I'm getting pretty good at helping them learn this language.. Maybe not though I'm probably just a punk senior companion who only does what he wants to do... ;) 
But yeah I love it here! :) 
 
 So I'm in a new area now. its called Nuumau but I cover 4 villages its Elder Redds second area too which is kinda funny :) I cover Eva, salelesi, Fusi and saoluafata. ITs a gorgeous area. Theres tons of beaches and stuff and its so tempting to jump in. Theres even a little mini island that just adds to the beauty of it all. Plus this week we found this man whos basically walking to baptism. The field is white and already to harvest. I love it!! This area is so cool! :) ANy questions?

December 4th

l feel super lame because I'm almost out of time and haven't written you anything. THis week was a bit of a bumpy one though... Me and my companion had to work through some differences and I've learned a lot about being a companion because of it. We finally got it all worked out and its all good though. Really though I'm super grateful for our zone leaders because they were a huge help with the two of us. I know that called leaders are called of God in this church through the proper line of authority and they're a great help only once we ask for their help. Thats what we needed this last week or two. WE just needed to be honest with them each other and sincerely seek their help and Gods. So sorry that is such a lame update on this week but know that I love you, all is well and I'm stoked we're on the downhill slope now. I'll see you soon and be sure to find out about what the word is for our phone call on Christmas.
I love you mommy Jones!
