Well this week was really good. I cannot believe how fast it went, but it was really good. We have three baptisms that are going to happen this saturday. Two of them have already passed their interview and we just have one more to do tomorrow. Rusila, Timoci, and Iva. They will be awesome because they are all adults. We have tons of converts, but they are all children. I think it is gonna be good to have some adult converts to strengthen the ward.

We had really good attendance again this week with less actives who made it out to church so that is something I am very happy about.

We had a cool experience saturday and sunday. We have a less active man Bro. Nailati we always visit. He is really awesome and has been coming to church, but we had a good lesson where I decided to just read a chapter from the Book of Mormon together and then talk about it. We read Alma 34 and it was just what he needed to hear: that he needs to stop procrastinating his repentance, and come back to church and start fulfilling a calling. It was awesome! Then in sacrament, he was asked to bear his testimony and he told about us always visiting and coming to see him and how we got him to come back to church and now he is going to never fall away again. He is great! Him and his wife are taking the temple preparation class. I am very excited for them.

This next week we are gonna have to spend some time trying to find new people to teach. We have a lot of people, but none of them are doing anything to change and are only half committed. So after the baptism, that is going to be the end of all our good investigators. It will be good though.

This morning we went and hiked Mt. Korobaba. I don't know if it is the highest point in Fiji, but it is the highest on this side of the island. It was really cool. The last half was more climbing then hiking and it was an awesome view. I had a lot of fun and got some great pictures.

I hope you're all doing good. That about sums up my week.

Thanks for all you do. I love you all. Moce.
