We went to the temple on Tuesday then had to take our car to Kaneohe for an oil change. I was able to help Sister Tamahari, an elderly Tahitian lady, when she needed a blessing. But on Wednesday I woke up with a sore throat which got worse by the end of the day and eventually turned into some kind of cold/flu bug. That wasn't very fun. I wasn't able to do very much Thursday and Friday. It seemed like everywhere we went all week there was at least one person in each household that had the same thing I did.
Saturday was better. I got to help Elder Young Yen give the missionary moment at a baptism in Kahuku. The kick is that we did it in 100% Samoan. haha Funny experience! I just read "O le Toefuataina" (The Restoration) pamphlet when it was my turn and then "Faasoa lau molimau." Haha I am really understanding the gospel language in Samoan very well. Even though I get the 'deer in the headlights' look when ever an auntie or uncle walks up to me and asks me something.. haha!
Sunday while my bro Chase was giving a talk (in our home ward, Lehi 41st), I was also giving a talk in the Hauula 4th ward. I spoke on member missionary work and feel pretty good about how it went. I feel that I have a good system for giving talks now.
Last night we also had the opportunity to have a dinner at a part member family's house. They feed students from BYUH every Sunday and have been wanting for us to come over ever since I've been here. Since we had an appointment fall through we were able to go. I talked to a lot of returned missionaries so that was fun.
Even though I got sick this week still turned out pretty good.
Love you all!
