Aloha Ohana and Talofa!! (this month the Samoan ward is feeding us so I felt they deserved the greeting to all of you! haha)

Howzit?? Sounds like you're all having a great time back in good old AZ!  We are teaching in Kahana Valley in our area! :) haha! That place is interesting, it's this whole inlet off the highway with basically a culture of its own! Very local, very laid back and there are literally no addresses! The addresses in our area book for that place are literally about as specific as "the unfinished log cabin on the right" (I kid you not, that is what it says on lds.org! haha)

R is doing great! We honestly aren't really doing anything for her. She is already super solid and was prepared so long ago that literally all we are doing is being "the missionaries she has to talk to one last time before she gets baptized" haha! Anyway, it's still fun and Elder Rentmeister and I are still very excited! :) As for the rest of this week, it was a pretty good week considering how sick I was for the majority of it. After moving this around in the house we found multiple places just overrun with mold so we're both pretty positive that I've be breathing in mold spores for the last three weeks which is probably what has been causing me so much trouble, but after much scrubbing, sleeping and coughing I'm pretty much over it and we're looking forward to really getting back into the swing of things this week! It's also just been quite the trial in general to adjust to such a new culture up here with a huge area, three wards, two new languages, and 92% (not an exaggeration) member communities! But overall it really is an amazing area and INCREDIBLY beautiful!!

Well anyway, honestly I'm about out of stuff to update you folks on, I spent the majority of this week curled up in a pathetic heap either in the passenger seat of the car or on my bed in Hauula... but anyway I still had a great week none the less and I still love and pray for all of you and hope that you also have a great week this week just as you did last week!! Stay strong, carry on and don't forget to be awesome!!

Ofa atu!!
