Walking, talking and other stuff

Man!! that's crazy!! Maddy is going to be home so soon!!! for me the end of my mission still seems forever away!!! haha! And yet I've already gone through 1/8th of it!! I know that's not a lot but still it is pretty crazy how time moves! (but I already gave my whole spiel on femto-seconds so I'll spare you the quantum physics this time. :) haha) Anyway, Aloha Maddy and welcome home! I anxiously await the day we will all be together again when I return home (although not TOO anxiously... I'm just getting started! :) haha!) 

So as for everything here in beautiful briny Kaneohe (not the bottom of the sea) everything is going great! Elder Manning is a GREAT missionary and while we still are struggling to get as much done as we would like to cause of walking and.. well.. other peoples agency :P We have had more lessons this week than the past few and have been continuing to try and help the members in doing their own missionary work (since they're not confined to a specific area or zone. haha) and so that's been great!

One of the biggest highlights of the week though has to have been the ward Trunk or Treat this last Saturday!! It was a BLAST!! and not only that but it was SUPER successful on the missionary effort side of it as well!! We had multiple less active, part member and even fully non-member families come out and they all had a blast and some of them came to church the next day as well so that was GREAT! We're definitely going to continue to follow-up with those that came and hopefully they can keep coming out and get baptized and then tell their friends and they will get baptized and eventually by the end of the transfer they'll have to split our one ward into two stakes because everyone will be super active and they'll build a new Kaneohe Temple and the church head-quarters will move out here and..... well something like that will happen.. maybe? haha!

Anyway, yeah so that's basically the main highlight of the week not including all of the usual walking, talking and other stuff that we do every week! haha! anyway, so yeah, hope you all have a great week! Sorry this week is kind of short but well, I don't really know what else to write about! haha! But yeah hope you all have an amazing week to follow! again, welcome home Maddy, congratulations Ben, and as always, don't forget to be awesome!! :)

Aloha Nui Loa!
-Elder Powell
