Sunrise Hike


So great to talk to the ohana yesterday! I already hit on most of what happened this week in my call home but just as a recap I got my new companion this week. His name is Elder Lewis and he is from Rexburg, Idaho. He has been out for 5 months and so far has spent all his time on the Big Island. Its been a bit of a shock for him adjusting to everything being so close and working in a city. Where he came from everything is all ranches and so he's been getting pretty sore and sunburned here but he has a good attitude about it so I can't complain. So far so good with him.

This week we also got up early to help Bishop teach the young men about the priesthood after a sunrise hike. So getting up at 4:30 am to be ready for that was not the best feeling but overall it was a great experience. Bishop Saula is just such a great and caring guy and I'm glad that these youth have him to look up to. All in all not a lot has changed but I am really looking forward to another 6 weeks in this ward and I can tell that Elder Lewis and I have a lot of work to do here. The church is true and we all need to spread the word.

Love you guys and thanks for all that you do.
