Kamusta Everybody!
 This past week for Elder Nikau and I has been really good. We were first able to have a fun service project on Monday cutting down banana trees at a member’s house. (We did however also manage to break 3 of the tools in the process) the best part of that service project was it was at the house of a less active family. While we were shopping for vegetables Monday morning we stopped by the stand of a less active member to buy vegetables from them. The father was there and asked if we were coming from his house. A little confused I asked him why and we found out that his daughter and wife were clearing out their backyard and he had assumed we were helping. We ran home, changed and then met him at their house and cut down all the trees. Since then he’s invited us to dinner twice and his wife came to church yesterday. It was a faith building experience that even on P-Day we were guided to help someone.
Other than that the best part of our work has been teaching Leo and April. We have been teaching them over the past several weeks and it has been great to see them feel the joy of the gospel in their lives. Yesterday they came to church for the 2nd time and when we visited with them that night most of the lesson was them telling us about all the blessings they had seen that day after they came to church.
I hope everyone had a great Valentine’s Day and also had a chance to share the love Heavenly father has for us.
