Malo e lelei!
I'm low on time (once again) but I thought I'll give a little play by play with what time I have left.
The elders from Niuatoputapu (the island from 'the other side of heaven') got transferred and waited a few days in our area for their plane to come. They were very cool and the members loved them. We've had a ball the last few days.
For some reason (which we've been unable to identify) nobody seemed to be home until like thursday afternoon. We made good progress and our area is better off because of this week, despite the lack of stuff to do early on.
We established another baptismal date and got a number of new investigators.
Tongan culture lesson of the week: Tongans aren't embarrassed to give us referrals when the refer-ee is present. This happened twice last week as we walked around and once during sacrament meeting. During priesthood, bishop asked if anyone had a person for the missionaries to teach, so like five people pointed at a nonmember boy in the audience. We went in and taught him, expected it to be really awkward, but it wasn't. It was a good lesson and we're going back tomorrow.
I had a really fun week and we got lots of work done.
'Ofa atu!
