So Sister Taimona and i have been trying to achieve The Standards of Excellence for our mission and we needed 2 more new investigators and it was sunday...pretty hard to get. but we prayed hard and found those 2 like thirty minutes before church started!! SO EXCITED!!! we have also found another one by contacting a former investigator and talking to her friend that lives there now. YAY FOR NEW INVESTIGATORS!! we also had HEAPS of Less Active members come to church and we have been able to see them progress and come closer to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. MISSIONARY LIFE IS THE BEST!! i love this place and the people SO MUCH!!! words cannot even explain how serving makes me feel.

SO surreal that next week is my last pday to email but i can't wait for the adventures that are coming our way!!!
Have a great week!! 
May the force be with you!
Kia Kaha!

Zone Conference and Makariri Days!


This week has been fast!! We went to a zone conference in Tauranga and had to say goodbye to President and Sister Rudd. SO HARD! just imagine 50+ missionaries standing side by side singing God be With You till We Meet Again as they walk out of the Marae. SO MANY TEARS! SO MANY! But i just keep reminding myself that i'm going to see them soon in august at our mission reunion hahaha it's all that kept me going. they have changed my life!!! 

It's also been SOO Makariri!!!! (cold) IT'S BEEN COLD! SO COLD! and we're pushing through. we've got heaters. heated blankets. and socks! good times. 

Well whanau! 



May the Force be with you!

Stake Conference

Kia Ora Whanau!

This week has gone by SO QUICK!! Sister Taimona and i have been SMASHIN IT!! it's been so fun this past week! We had stake conference this week and sister taimona and i sang in the choir. it was really nice. we're looking around for someone who has a cello so that sister taimona and i can play something together because she plays the piano! The stake conference was SO good! They talked ALL about the temple and how we need to not take the blessings of the temple for granted and that the temple is for all of us to be a part and a family. missionary work was also a MAJOR part of both of the meetings. Elder Fata form the the area seventy talked to the adults about Opening their mouths and doing all they can to do missionary work. that missionary work isn't moving as quickly as it should because members aren't helping. they should be finding and we should be teaching. it was weird thinking that soon i'll be in the MEMBER missionary category and not the FULL TIME missionary category. SO WEIRD!!! AHHHH

There isn't anything really else to update on hahah sorry! we're just going with the flow and working hard. everything's going swimmingly :) i love New Zealand and i love being a misisonary. it is the best decision i have ever made. thank you to everyone who helped me make that decision. I LOVE MY HEAVENLY FATHER AND SERVING HIM. 

I love yous! 

May the Force be with you!

This week we visited HEAPS of people and introduced Sister Taimona to the ward. it was so fun. i am loving my area and all these people that have been prepared for us.
