Weeks are feeling like days

Hiking on P-Day
Time is absolutely flying!
This email is gonna be short, because I'm Skyping you guys next week. So sorry about it.

Lots and lots of tracting this week. No meeting with Martin because he had some testing to get ready for and take care of. People take school v
My buddy Elder Nasman, our
Zone Leader from Sweden
ery seriously here! but we're hoping to meet with him next week!

We met with Ace on Saturday. He really wasn't progressing at all. However our meeting with him changed that! Saturday night, we got a text from him and he thanked us very much for visiting him. He told us he is going to read the Book of Mormon more diligently and pray harder. He told us he will Jia You (add oil) or try harder. I am confident he is going to make his baptismal date at the end of the month!

It started pouring!
Yesterday we met a super golden investigator. During Sacrament meeting, we noticed a guy we didn't recognize. Nobody knew who he was, so we went up to him, talked to him for a bit, and set up an appointment with him that night. Turns out he's not a member and he's been to church three times on his own. Twice in a different ward, and once at ours. Our meeting last night with him was awesome! He was eating up the stuff we taught him. We set a baptismal date with him, and he is seems very excited to be baptized.

So as you can tell, this work is incredible. It's super hard, definitely one of the hardest things I've ever done, but it's quite rewarding. It has it's shining moments that outweigh everything else!

This week was a good one!

Again sorry this is so short! I still love you guys! So glad to hear Dad is alive and safe and healthy and all that good stuff. Good look with this week of rugby!

Love you all
Elder Chase Matua

Fun times hiking in the jungle
Climbing bamboo trees is hard
No one was listening except Confucius
Best fish I've ever eaten
Thinking, pondering, praying for you all
