Iakwe friends and family!! This week has been so good! We have some people that are progressing so well and we will hopefully have 2 bap dates by the end of this week. It is so exciting. It is so cool to see the power of the BOM and this Gospel change their lives. The church is true! My love for the scriptures has grown so much. I am a BOM addict haha, I love it. The power that comes from it is so cool. I challenge all of you to really dive into the BOM, it will change your life. This week I went to my first Keemem which is a Marshallese holiday its insane. It is for their kids first birthday and it is HUGE. They spend thousands of dollars on these things. But it is way fun. It was supposed to start at 6:30 but thats "American time" these start on "Marshallese time." So we got there at like 9:30 and it didn't even start yet haha. Its so funny. We told them we had to leave and they gave a box of food for each of us with a bunch of Marshallese food. Some was way good but i tried this raw fish and I am paying for it today haha. Its been rough. Also I was on exchanges in Ponca city and we ate with a member and he was so cool. He was way into medieval stuff and had all this weird stuff. He had some knight's armor and he put it on me it was like thousand pounds haha. So funny, we had a good time with it. It has been a way fun week, the mission is awesome. Thank you all for the birthday wishes, it means a lot to me. I love and miss you all, hope all is going good! God speed!
