First of all, shout out to Sister Duce for being born today! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
THIS IS SISTER WEIGHT COMING TO YOU LIVE FROM THE SOUTH ISLAND!!! I love it here! Our flat is so flash! It has heated floors! And it is like 10 minutes from the beach so we go there all the time to talk to people. And the people here are different than the north island, but it is just the best. Sister Pega and I have been working so hard and I just love her to bits! And within our first hour together, Sister Pega and I met, taught, and committed 2 people to be new investigators! (Danielle and Taynz, they are 17 year old twins, and I can’t wait to teach them more!) I have a feeling this will be a great transfer:) I could not ask for anything better! The weather here is so warm. Between going to the beach, and biking all over I am quite sun burnt, but it’s worth it. I guess there is a reason that they call it “sunny Nelson”:)
So on Tuesday, we had to pick up Sister Ami’s new comp, Sister Barao! She is from Kiribati! It was hard to leave Hawke’s Bay, but I know that Having a Kiribati sister in our branch, will help it grow SO much!
Wednesday, I flew from Napier, to Wellington, then got on another flight to Nelson! I LOVE IT HERE!
Friday morning, early we had to fly back to Wellington for MLC and meetings with President and Sister Soloai! That was really cool. There are going to be lots of changes in the mission, and we had a good chance to talk about how we can implement them. There were no flights back to Nelson on Friday, so we spent the night in Papakowhai with Sister Walton and Sister Malupeng! That was an adventure!
Saturday we flew back home, and it was good to finally be on solid ground. I sat next to a really cool lady on the last plane ride though! She was heading to Nelson because her mum is dying, and so I got to share with her the Plan of Salvation. It was really cool. I know I sat next to her on the plane for a reason! THERE ARE NO COINCIDENCES!!!
We spent the Holiday weekend on the beach talking to people! It was so fun! I just love being a missionary.
Have a great week! Love you all!
