Transferred to Hitia

[This week's entry is somewhat redacted.  Family can contact Steve to get a forwarded copy of the original. -SL]

This week has been CRAZY. Sadly, I think I'm missing Billabong [i.e. he will not be in the vicinity of Teahupo'o for when the pro surfing tour stops there in August.  -SL]

This week started out with the concert with Pres Bize, Sunday. I think I told you all about that. It was sweet. Then, Tuesday, I was on a split with Elder Demynuk (from France) and it was great too. Then upon returning to the house with Elder Ball, I get a call from the assistants... They told me I'm going to HITIA. It's not far from my old sector actually.

So the next day we have a mission conference, SWEET! President Bize is sooo cool, and I loved his formations--he talks like half English and half French. He is implementing programs to teach all misssionaires English because of how it blessed his life. Any way, so during the conf, I go talk to President, and tells me about my new companion.

So, Thursday, till Saturday was awkward, leaving the sector is just odd. Requestioning lots of stuff, like, "Do I teach well enough, what do I need to improve for the next sector, and what didn't I get done yet?"  Stressfull. And hard to say goodbye. Sunday, we did a zone fireside for members; and President Bize came, SUPRISE! Again, HE IS SO awesome. Had a good last day in Vairao, and then my good friend, Sister Temauri, organized a going away meal for me :O Several new converts and dear families. Wow; Sooo lucky. I cried like a little boy, and said goodbye. I REALLY love the people there, and wow. Just wow. Weird leaving.

Today I got to Hitia. Said bye to E Ball, and then whoop! Had a good day. My comp's name is Elder Teihotu. He's from here, and FISHES!!! I caught a small surf fish today, and sounds like P-day fishing will be a repeat activity :D Oh also found out my friend Elder CLARK! is in the same house :) He's my zone leader now, and I am lucky to have a good friend and support there like all the time.

Sorry if this e-mail is scattered or just awkward. I am doing well. Thanks for all your love and support.  I am so glad to be missionaire.

PS the 4th was fun here. Had a disrtict meeting and sang God Bless America.... :P

I LOVE YOU!!! Thanks!!

Pics next week, not lots of time.
