PU'AI E FAATURA : May 21, 2010

Dear Family,

   I am still doing well. 2 weeks down 10 to go. I really love goldfish and they don't sell those here so feel free to send me some. Also I hate wearing a watch so I was thinking of going with a pocket watch so if you find a cool one let me know. 5 minutes. (Ed. note: He had only five minutes left to write). This last week I have learned alot. I've started the transition from studying French to studying the gospel in French and have found that that makes the learning go faster. I have become incredibly firmiliar with the inside of my classroom and have memorized the map of Tahiti that is in there. Everything is great. 

pu'ai e faatura (that is our district motto)
