October 7th 2013

Aloha everybody!!! Last week was the last full week of the transfer!! And we had General Conference! We had to wake up at like 5:30am so we could get there in time for the 6am session, Its at 6am because of the time difference, Utah is 4 hours ahead of us. It was hard to stay awake but I still got some notes of the talks. They had 4 different languages going on at the same time. It was pretty cool. The talks that the Apostles and General authorities gave were all awesome, Especially Thomas S. Monson's talks! The Church is growing! Over 80,000 missionaries and over 15 million members, wow! It was pretty cool to see Elder Holland give a talk when only 2 weeks before, he was here in Hawaii! Also Saturday was Elder Jensen's birthday, our zone leader, and we did a short surprise party that night. it was pretty funny.
       Alright as far as the Baptism for Joel that was scheduled for this Saturday, Joel works long hours everyday, so we will have to push his baptismal date back a couple weeks because of that, he had to cancel our last few appointments with him. So work with him is still progressing but at a slower pace. He still comes to church every Sunday. At least he still has a desire to be baptized and his girlfriend wants him to get baptized too. Oh we also got transfer calls last night! And I'm going to get transferred, and Elder Mauga is going to take over the area! So he will let me know when Joel will get baptized, while I'm in my next area.
         I'll let you guys know where my next area is when I find out!

Elder Randall
