Morning ALL I am so sorry this is a short email as my companion and sisters are awaiting me
(lol mole magava's over here)

ANYWAYS just want to send my BIGGEST LOVE to each and everyone of you and hoping that this week brings nothing but LOVE AND JOY as we welcome in the last month of 2015!

Reflecting upon this month makes me feel so much love for my brothers and sisters here in the islands. They truly are beautiful souls.

I just want to share a small experience that happened to me last week :)

My first month here me and my mission mum found an investigator that not a lot of people had hope in. They said she was really makadkad - ka'as alot etc. and every time we had a lesson with her she'd always just disappear and not come back (lol)

Anyways once she continued to have lessons with us, come to church and started reading the BOM and praying about she got baptised 3 weeks later! My first convert I was so happy and proud of her efforts Christina is her name.

Most of you know I was only in my first area 1 month and half before I moved to my now current area. Since becoming a member Christina has been one of the most ACTIVE YSA members in the church & not only has she been active - she's referred almost 10+ now baptized friends and family members into the church in Long Island ward.

Her conversion story and her Faith has helped her through her struggling school and family life. She bore me her testimony yesterday when I saw her in Long Island and told me she has a desire to serve and do the Lords work :'(

I cried as I hugged my sister! She is such a beautiful daughter of our Heavenly Father and cannot wait to keep you posted on her efforts!

I apologize for this email being so short but I hope and pray that this week brings you all so much love and joy!!! THANK YOU for your love and constant support my family and friends and pray for you all daily!!!
