Changes comin'

Dear Family,

I've been struggling with the work the past couple of weeks to be completely honest, but it all got better this weekend when I found out that I will be transferring. I will miss all the people of Waikoloa but it will be so nice to have a bit of change. I'll get a fresh start in a new ward on Oahu with a good, hardworking companion. I leave for Oahu on Wednesday for Oahu.

I will be in the Kaneohe 2nd Ward with elder Vehlma as my companion! He is a super hard working missionary and I will be learning a lot from him. Elder Seremai will be staying here in Waikoloa. His new companion is good so the work will move on regardless. My first six months on the mission here has flown by and everyone said time goes even faster when you leave your greenie area.

I'm doing awesome otherwise! I'm happy! It kinda feels like I'll be starting a whole new mission with a fresh start. It will be nice. I got both packages from you and auntie Kara. Please keep the healthy bars and treats coming. It is good for my weight. I've been trying to only have one helping at dinner but it is so hard in Hawaii. It just never stops coming. I'm doing great though.

Dad, I never really thought about all the Deacon's you started with at Lehi 41st becoming priests now. That's crazy!

Joe [Pikula] and Cody [Thompson] as props for BYU Rugby? Both of those guys are super fast as forwards! It sounds like the BYU roster is a good one this year. I miss watching the Whippy boys play. I miss watching and playing rugby, period! I don't remember if I told you this last week or not but President Warner has banned missionaries from all rugby and football. No more of either of them. It's gonna be tough not playing rugby but I guess he's gotta do what he's gotta do and he has the inspiration for us missionaries.

Love you guys,
Elder Matua
