I REALLY LIKE MY MISSION: Feb 27, 2012
This week we had 2 baptisms. The first was Manutea Putoa ( translation: White Bird Conchshell Store). We hope that his mom will soon join him and get baptized. The other was Nooroa Taero (Big Reputation Drunk). He is a good guy even though he forgets the lessons really fast because he is super old. At this moment I am with Elder Crump while we both wait for our new companions after which he will be going to Raiatea. I will be finishing my mission here in Mahina. I know I don't write a lot in my emails but y'all shoudl know that I really lke my mission and that I am super happy to be here.
