This week was super rewarding. We are going all out or as Daddy Kanani says, "*&%$#@!" (not a cuss word!), Lol I don't think that will make the blog but it's alright - - ha ha! We have a baptism marked!!! Her name is Lindalva, she is about 35ish and just got divorced. She has a son that is 4, his name is João. When we found Lindalva (about 3 weeks ago) she was in a really dark place and when we taught her the Restoration her face just lit up. The next week she went to church and this past Sunday was her second time attending. I showed her the baptismal font and invited her right there, she accepted, and she will be baptized on the 4th of September. Her son loves Primary!
We are dividing with a lot of the young men in the ward. Our ward mission leader is 17 years old so he cant help us much because he is in school. This past Sunday we woke up at 5 in the morning to go to our Ward Council that started at 7 a.m. Our chapel is kinda far, which is fine that's part of it - - but when we get there there is no one there - - well that is kind of a bummer.
So like IDK it's hard to do by yourself, but we're going to keep doing our part. My companion is doing awesome. The District is doing really good too! I'm interviewing like 2 times a week, really good investigators that our Sisters are finding.
Love you guys. Elder Akina
* There is a large section in the middle of Elder Akina's letter where he shares some struggles the missionaries face when members don't do their part to support their efforts. It is a little reminder for us to follow up through with our callings if the Elders find people in our auxiliaries. Time to step it up!
