Kia Ora, This week has been a really fun week. We had a lot going on out of the ordinary so it was a lot of fun. Last Monday for my B-Day P-Day we went to the top of Kaiti Hill (not the hill I wanted but it was still fun). We got some mean pictures and just had a lot of fun because it was also a bit of a hike. We also had our Zone Conference this last Thursday and since we're in Gisborne and the conference was in Hamilton, we had to leave the day before and stay the night in Hamilton so we could be there on time. It was a fun exerience because we got to stay at "The Mansion." It's the biggest flat in the mission and it was nice as! It had stainless steel appliances and lots of space. It's because it's part of a member's house. The sad thing about these trips is that we have to eat out a lot and so we have to save up a lot of our money to survive. We have another long trip this week to Auckland for our Mission Conference. Elder Christensen of the 70 is coming to speak to us. We also were able to get a fair bit of work done in our area even though we've been gone so long from our area. We have one investigator that is so keen! She is 16 and her name is S. She is Maori and she wants to be baptised and come to church. The only reason she hasn't come to church so far is because the first week she didn't want to go alone and her cousin wouldn't go with her. Also, this last Sunday she was at a Kapa Haka competition. Kapa Haka is a traditional Maori dance that is very big in New Zealand. They dress up and everything. The Haka is mainly just guys and Kapa Haka is with the girls. I believe that's how it works any ways. Apparently her school is ranked like #3 in the Nation and she says that they should've been 2nd. She's really cool though. Other than that not much happened this week, but hopefully I can share more next time. Love you heaps! Elder Lee
