"The Story Of My Mission"


What a fantastic week we had!! We had such an amazing week, it's hard to know where to start.
I guess I'll start with the bad news first. Melissa and Coral moved to California, so we are no longer teaching them for obvious reasons! However the Lord supplied us with more people to teach!!!
The greatest news we have is about Hilton! I found him as a greenie missionary, and than yesterday, after 21 months of investigating, he was baptized. I was very honored to baptize him, and it was such a blessing to be able to do so. It was a powerful baptism and he felt the spirit strong! His wife wasn't able to attend, but his kids did!! I told Hilton he's the story of my mission, and he is!! I found him when I was 1 month out into the field, and now he's baptized!! It was a very special day! He's probably the reason I stayed on Kaua'i for one more transfer.
We have been working with a family to get them baptized, and they are still on track for the 22nd. Kinda funny because Hilton's brother, Larry, is dating her and he came to church on Sunday!!! Ya never know what'll happen!! Maybe I can baptize his brother too haha.

We also were able to invite a keiki to baptism on the 22nd as well. His parents don't' seem to really have an issue with us or the church, so that might just take place!!

Other than that, we sure are working hard here in Lihue and doing our best to build up the kingdom of God here in this beautiful stake of Zion. I love this island, and it was so so nice to be back in Kalaheo around my old ward!! I can't wait to come back to visit and see them again!!!
Love you all and hope to hear from you soon!!!



  1. Prayers were truly answered on Hilton's behalf. This truly is an amazing story of love and his faith in the Lord to help his baptism come about.
