A week full of dancing in the rain!

A week full of dancing in the rain! But, sill a good week(: 
We had a lot going on this week. We have been super busy, trying to see everyone we could this week! And we were able to see a lot. We were actually able to pass our goal!(: Which was AWESOME! 
The week started off kinda slow.. but got busier and busier as the week went. We were able to get a new investigator. His name is Ronald! haha! He is Indian and he is married to a less active. But, what is so cool about him, is that he is Hindu! So that means, he doesn't blieve in God.. well he doesn't know who God is or Jesus Christ or the Holy ghost! Literally no idea. We had a 1st lesson with him, and it was one of the best lessons this week. He totally understood who they were and he really understood who the Holy Ghost was because he could feel it he said. It is so awesome. He is so awesome and his wife is awesome too! She is this little indian girl, who loves Heavenly Father, but since she got married she has had a hard time coming to church and stuff, but she wants him to get baptized, so she is a good support for him!(: 
We were able to have a fun service this week helping an inactive family clean. This family is so much fun. It breaks my heart that they don't want to come to church. But, the fact that they still love the missionaries, is a good thing! Actually the missionaries are the only reason they have any ties to the church. But they are awesome. They went back to their Hindu religion since the grad parents passed away, and have been gone ever since. But they are so mice. We were able to clean and play with the family for a while. We were able to make lucnch with them. And what was cool is they had all these old Liahonas and books frm the church. They wanted to just throw them away, but they said they don't have the heart too. So they were saving it for us, so we could give it to other people. I went through all of those Liahonas. Old conferences, old talks. It was awesome. It was almost like Christmas!(: haha! We had a lot of fun. 
Then I had the chance to go on exchanges this week with Sister Matheson. She is so cool. She is from Utah. and shes cool. haha(: We had a lot of fun! It was the 1st time I have ever been with someone white on my mission like that. SO that was different, but super fun! haha! We talked about how different thing srae going to be when we go home. And just how different the culture is and everything. It was fun. But, its amazing the love we both can feel from and for the people here.(: and that love wil never change! 
ok I want to tell a super cool story! So as you know, the temple is closing down. It is going to be shut for no more than 2 years. But it will be closing this saturday. SO the temple has been so so SO busy this past week.  few weeks ago, we were told Fiji was in a drought, because there wasn't enough rain. But this past week, there has been rain ever snigle day.. and not just a littrle bit. A TON! Haha! I defintely saw this as a blessing for the people here in Fiji.. It is like Heavenly Father is giving them one last huge blessing before the temple closes! I thought that was totally cool!(: 
Something I learned this week was kinda what all you guys said conference was about. Testimonies, obedience, strength. SO i cannot wait to see it. But I can tell you that this gospel is SO SO SO true. Our Heavenly Father loves us so so so much! I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love this gospel. It really is the good news. That is trhe best part of being a missionary, sharing the good news and seeing lives change from it! 
I love you guys so so so much! Keep being awesome and keep the gospel with you ALWAYS!(: 
loloma levu!
