Malo e lelei from the MTC! Life is really good here. It was a pretty eventful week so I'll kind of go over it.
For the Devotional on Sunday we watched "The Character of Christ," by Elder Bednar, which was amazing. But what was even more amazing is when he walked in the door right after we watched it. He had a Q and A that was super good. I loved it when he said that charity is not something you do it's something you become.
My hoa(companion) and I are doing great. We are both forgetful people so we have lost a lot of things, but I've gotten a lot more organized as the week has gone on. Lessons are pretty hard for me. I know what I want to say and right now I can kind of dissect what our investigator is asking, but I don't really know how to say it. I now get so jealous of every English speaking missionary because it would be so nice to be able to speak my mind. But Naselai and I work really well together. He speaks Tongan fluently just not in gospel terms. So he translates for me and I can have him translate back into Tongan what I'm trying to say.

In other news, Elder Zitzmann in my district had bed bugs in his bed so on Thursday we spent the entire day spraying and washing EVERYTHING and we also had to switch rooms. It was kind of nice though because we all got 100 bucks worth of dry cleaning.
Ball in the MTC has been really fun. There are a couple of good ballers in my zone and my district too. Below is my district is in our Tupenus. Elder Manu to the right of me is 6'4" and 280 and can move like no 6'4" 280 person has ever moved before. Me, Manu, and his companion to the right of him, Poulsen, have yet to lose. I'm also known as the Kyrie of the MTC right now.
My Tongan is progressing. All the gramatical stuff is so crazy to me, but Poulsen and I have been working hard at memorizing vocab. The word of the week is Tika which means sick. I'm loving life in the MTC and the spirit that is here.
P.S. Shoutout to the Congers and Bollingers for the packages. Congers, I absolutly LOVED THE SHASTA. Kind of a shame I don't have a stove or I would ask for loads of Top.
