Companion: Elder Tu'akalau
Heya Family!Its great to get all your emails this week! Sorry it's a day late, we went to the temple this week and we had to switch our p-day to today to be able to go. I did get the Halloween box and all the stuff in there was great! I really appreciate it Mom and Dad, it really makes a big difference in my week when I get a little bit of home sent out here. :) So grateful to have that GPS too! It helps so much and makes us so much more efficient. I haven't gotten the 2nd box yet but maybe today or tomorrow? I'll let you know next week. The new bishopric sounds amazing! About time that all happened, what was it, 3-4 weeks??
To answer your question, we didn't really meet anyone new this week but we did run into this old old lady on the street while walking named Fae. She was super sweet and reminded my a lot of Fae Larsen back home. She was out mowing her lawn and wouldn't let us mow it for her because she said it's the only thing keeping her young and she loves doing it. Anyway, she was just super sweet and she said she has seen us walking all the time and really admires our dedication. When she said that it was a good reminder that people are always watching us and especially while wearing the name of the Lord on my chest I need to be mindful.
This past Saturday we had a Ward Halloween party! It was pretty fun! It was a chili cook off and a trunk or treat. Of course, us missionaries were the judges of the chili cook off... 12 different types of chilis just don't sit to well at the end of the day. HAHA! But it was super fun none the less!

All the chili samples we had to judge!
