Prince of Tonga

Male Famili,

Hahah sorry I was way late last week for writing ya’ll. I just wasn’t able to get a hold of a computer because all of us we’re way busy with things and what not.

But these past weeks have been way slow! It’s driving me crazy. Just a lot has been going on, so not so many people were really home because of like the sports and conference and stuff. Although, it’s been like a fun past few weeks because of all the events, but when it comes to the end of the day not much has been going on.

We’ve still been teaching one of our investigators Melika, and she’s been progressing.  She’s just been really busy. But she did come to general conference and stake conference. So it was good to see her there. Me and my comp have just been going around visiting members and trying out to find a way we can like come over to members houses and like not be a burden ya know? Because when they see us they already assume we’re there to ask them if they have anyone we can teach. And it’s always a “we’ll get back at you if there is someone available.” So we’ve still been trying to like fokotuu family plans with them. But they haven’t really been committed to it. But maybe we’re just not putting in enough work if to push them. I don’t know?

Conference was way good! I had to honestly draw pictures to keep myself awake because I was so tired for some odd reason.  But I was able to focus in and listen. You were totally right mom, they really did focus a lot on like family and like marriage in this conference. One of the talks I liked was when they were talking about how like his sister that left the church and he couldn’t force her; he just had to wait and watch over time, but he still just invited her to everything and never made her feel left out. I don’t know why I liked that one. Maybe it’s just because I’m a missionary and like with mamalohis and stuff you can’t force them, but just help them and just keep inviting because that’s what my purpose is: to invite and help others.

We just had stake conference this past weekend and it was amazing. One of the quorum of the 70s came and taki the whole fktaha. And the prince of Tonga came to the conference and they invited him to bear his testimony and he did it and they filmed it and it was all over the news.

I’m telling you the work is going to hasten when he gets papi in this church. He’s already like friendshiping a lot of the nobles already and royalty to be taught. And they all speak English so it’s easy for the missionaries so they don’t have to like speak in the kings language and stuff. But it was so cool when the Prince and his sister the Princess came. There was like security everywhere and we all like stood up when he walked in and like everyone was bowing. It was tika! But like for real it was a cool experience.

But in this meeting they were focusing on rescuing people and bringing like potential missionaries back to church and getting them the priesthood and getting them on missions. The 70 had a ton of stories to tell us about some experiences and stories. The spirit was super strong and it was a good conference.

Well I love all you guys! Dad you’re in my prayers and I hope the shoulder is recovering well. Mom I hope the marathon went good. Thank you for sending me everything I request for. I hope you’re foots getting better. Jake congrats on the new calling. You’re going to be a great leader for the young men in your ward. Katie I hope you’re doing well and staying healthy with the babe.

Mom tell Grandma thank you for her letters. I love getting them and reading the articles. I hope she’s recovering well with everything she’s been struggling with her foot. Family! I love all you guys and miss you so much! And you’re always in my prayers. I can’t wait to see you guys soon. A lot of the missionaries are going home today and it got me excited as well. much ofas guys!

Elder Berry
