We met with the new mission president and his wife (Pres. and Sis. Tui'one) on Wednesday and Friday. They are adorable. I am excited to work with them. Yesterday, we were shocked with a call from the zone leaders saying that sister Mo'unga will be tranferring to 'Eua and I will be staying in Kolovai. Sister Mo'unga just got here, so we expected her to stay for sure. I am sad to see her go. She is an AMAZING missionary, and can't begin to list all i have learned from her. My new companion will be Sister Betteridge! A palangi sister from Washington! :) I took a class with her at BYU before the mission, so we are already friends! She came in to the mission with Sister Mo'unga, and I have heard great things about her in her missionary service. I am excited to work with her.
I definitely witnessed a miracle this week. I don't have time to explain the whole thing, but lets just say we somehow got permission to drive into town to look for an old investigator. We had no phone number, no contact for 2 months, and a vague idea of where she lived. We found her after 5 minutes of looking and praying in perfect 20 minute window of free time that she had all week. The Lord guides this work., and he guides each of us when we make sacrifices to be closer to him. I know it.
Invite him more into your life this week. He is always a prayer away :)
