Well, had two really good lessons with Matt and Rodney today. Matt has been reading the Book of Mormon and today he told me that he hasn't been 100% honest lately, but he is now set for February 8 as his baptism day. Rodney's lesson was more of just talking about missionary work and just teaching him about forgiveness. We did a lot more walking around yesterday as well as today, trying to find new people to teach, but not having a ton of success. Do however, have my eye on a few potential investigators that could really help to jump start the branch! :) My language skills are coming along nicely now, as Romalum is the place to learn Chuukese and plus I've got a great teacher, Brother Richard Kuss!!
I realize that now more than ever I need to be careful, both physically and mentally. Last Sunday, I totally got attached by 5 dogs while trying to go get people to church. On top of that, we've had a samau or mater (illness) going around and I think I've caught some of it. Mentally, need to say focused on this wonderful missionary work.
Anyways, it's so peaceful here, night or day, and I love the feelings that I have right now! I absolutely love this place, I love Chuuk, and I wouldn't have it any other way!!
Love you all,
