Kia Ora Everyone,

This week has been a really good week. My companion, Elder Thomas, and I get along great. We just have so much fun doing the work and we can just laugh about anything and everything. It's so much fun. We have been teaching some people this last week. It was a bit depressing though because the few sets that we had fell through. No one came to church which was a bit frustrating because I could have sworn they were going to come. They told us the day before that they were excited to come to church but then, J (who is partners with F and we are teaching them both), went to another church with her friend for some reason and so F didn't want to go alone. There's always next week though. We were also a bit sad because we had a set named K who had a funeral in his family unexpectedly and we haven't been able to get ahold of him since. We just need to teach him the Plan of Salvation and then he will be golden. He was also looking forward to coming to church but I don't know what happened. We're praying for miracles though. We also did a lot of door knocking this week. It was funny because we went to this one door and there was a sign that said to not door knock otherwise we would get verbal abuse or rotten fruit thrown at us. We knocked any ways and the lady answered, "Did you not read the sign? So which do you want the rotten fruit or the verbal abuse?" For some reason I couldn't take the situation seriously and so my companion and I kind of chuckled and then gave a smart alec reply. He said, "The rotten fruit please, we just got a recipe for banana cake and we don't have enough rotten bananas." She just shut her door and we left. It was quite funny though. Overall, its been a really good week besides all the rain. It has rained for more than half the week. Right when we thought it finished it rained the very next day. It just keeps coming back! The work is good and we love it. Keep up the good work back home!

Ofa Atu,

Elder Lee
