September 28th 2009

Dear Friends and Family,

Can you believe it is almost October already?! This month has gone by so fast! Transfers are next week on Wednesday, so I find out on Sunday night if I'll stay in my area or not. I will probably go to a new area :( but I'll be happy with whatever happens. One thing that Preach My Gospel tells us it to do everything we can to leave our area stronger than we found it, so I can truthfully and happily say I've done that.

Today we had a p-day activity with all the sisters on the island except the Visitors' Center sisters. It was a lot of fun to take a break from the Elders. We hiked Diamond Head Crater, had breakfast at our mission president's house, and played some games. I'll send some pictures in another email for you to see.

Other than that, things are the same as usual for a missionary in Hawaii. It's been getting really HOT lately and we've been seeing more giant centipedes and little scorpians than usual. Luckily, I've inherited Mom's hardcore ability to kill and get rid of the little buggers without freaking out, so that comes in handy :)

We recently saw one of our recent converts who works on LOST. They started production again for the LAST season and he said he'd get me some cool souvenir from the set. He also said that he could probably get an autograph from the girl who had a baby on the island and then died--meaning she's probably not dead afterall. I probably should've said "spoiler alert!!" for Audrey and Dad, haha, but I wanted to leak some news just because I can.

Anyway, I have to go. But I love this church, I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, and I love my family and the knowledge that we will be a family in the life to come.
