Learning Samoan and doing work

Nothing too crazy happened this week. Our district leader was actually sick all week so we were helping them out with exchanges to teach all their lessons. I got to go with the Samoan elder a few times. He has taught me a ton of Samoan. I can get the gist of most conversations, but I'm still very far from really speaking. I really understand now the reasons why FOBs talk the way they do, hahahaha. They speak English with Samoan grammar haha!

I got the chance to go and teach a young girl that is getting ready for baptism and has less-active parents. That is the majority of our teaching opportunities. I will be with this comp for the rest of the transfer, so 'til about the middle of October. He is a good companion for me right now.

President told me that next transfer I will be training so I'm preparing myself for that. It should be interesting in comparison to the last time I trained. I was still so new - I still feel so new. But at the same time it feels like missionary work has just become a part of me. I feel so much more confident in anything that I do. At the same time I knew how to act mature about it and approach the situations in a correct manor. I think a lot of it has to do with the spirit so I'm hoping to be able to carry a bit of that home with me in my carry-on.

It is crazy that Chase is leaving and I'm on the down hill slope...such a weird feeling.

Love you!
