Malo e lelei!We had a very good week. The three girls I emailed about last week were all baptized and confirmed last week. Their names are Nina, Finau, and Ofa. I've sent a picture. It was a beautiful thing.I finished the Book of Mormon in Tongan, as planned, within 60 days. I can read it at a fairly steady speed and only occasionally have to look up words. I wasn't easy at first, but I has helped quite a lot. President Tupou is going to give us an extra hour for personal study, starting in a couple weeks. So, starting then, I will read it in 30.I'm at a different church than normal for emailing. I've been on and off the computer like 6 times; the clerk, the bishop, other elders, etc. all need to use the computer. I'll hurry.My companion and I have been doing well. I've been sick and he's been helping me. giving me peppy talks and telling me I can do it. I love him a lot.I'm really getting 'encouraged' to get off the computer. so off I go.Ofa lahi atu! Excuse the brevity.Elder Brown
