We are excited to welcome Kelsey, Sister Petalisi home this Friday!!!  She will be speaking in church on November the 20th at 9:00.  12th and  Pearl building.  It's been a great year and an half!!
Hey Mom and Dad!! I know that I will be seeing you all this week so I'm going to keep it short today. Lots of things to do this last P-day here in Tonga. It is all very bitter sweet and I'm excited to see the fam and excited to hold babies again HA but hard to say good bye to this place. My companion and I made it a goal not to cry this week but so far we're failing bad. I hope we can spend lots of time with their family especially before Rita leaves on her mission so we can eat Tongan food or can we please go find a Tongan restaurant when I'm home? I'm sure there has to be a few in Seattle. I've heard Samoan and I can't understand it it's different, but my companion says if I listen closely I'd be able to pick up some things and vise versa. I'm not allowed to wear the Tongan clothes on the plane ride home but I will wear it Sunday out of respect and also I don't know how many other options I have. Work this week was very rewarding. Despite the need for us to go help the other sisters here and work with them in their areas for lots of different reasons and we had less time in our area but I know God blessed us for having a willing heart and mind. We had lots of new investigators this week and God led us to 2 new families to teach the message of the Restoration to and commit to baptism. One of the most rewarding things on my mission has been training. I love my companion Sister Moeata she is amazing and will continue to do great things in this area. Have a good week I love you 2!
