Me and My Friends

Week 15 on Uripiv August 17, 2014

Dia ol famle blo mi we mi lavem tumas,

Yufala i Lucky because the rules changed and we will be coming to Lakatoro every week again!  Don't worry, just email me next week.  So honestly not much happened last week but I will try my best to make this email long.

So last week after I emailed we went back to Uripiv and went to our branch president's house for "famle haos naet" (family home evening).  Everyone shared a scriptural thought and afterwards we played a game called 7 over.  It's a fun game that can be played with many people and it's a game of body actions.  It's hard to explain but I will have to show it to you when I get back.

Tuesday was the same as usual.  We did laundry and rested and during the afternoon we went out to teach but everyone was gone again.

Wednesday we went out and taught our recent convert about callings and auxilary classes in the church.  Many people were in Lakatoro because a ship came so everybody was gone so we had no one else to teach so we went to our Elders Quorum President's house to help prepare a lesson for
Sunday.  Then at night me and Elda Takaro went and taught at a fireside.  The fireside was held between many houses of members and non members. Everyone was invited and we taught about the Plan of Salvation, mainly the pre-earth life and the time of adam and eve, and life on earth.  It went really well and everyone was very interested. Many said that now they know the full story of Adam and Eve, and why it was part of gods plan. It was a great fireside.

Thursday we went to a friend's house named Morris to do a little service for him.  We filled up a 50 gallon drum of water for him.  We went to a well where there were plastic containers with rope tied to them and we lowered the containers into the well and poured water into buckets, and carried the buckets to his house and poured the water from the buckets into the 50 gallon drum.  On this little island the people mainly get their water from wells and from rainwater that empties into water tanks.
During the afternoon we wanted to teach but once again people were gone. Most of the people went to Lakatoro because Friday would be a public holiday.  So many people wanted to spend the holiday in Lakatoro.

Friday we were only able to teach a less active member and everyone else was in Lakatoro. Saturday was the same as Friday honestly, not much happened. Sunday we didn't have time to teach because we had a long Branch Council Meeting and met with the Branch President.  But they were really good meetings and all is going well.

Well that's about all that happened this week, sorry this email is short, plan on hearing from me next week again. Know that I love you and all and that things are going well here. I love you!

Love, Elder Beynon
