More News from Romulum
Dear Family, August 12, 2015
Well I am doing well, no complaints, and after eating Ramen as most meals, certainly no constipation haha. Thank you guys for your eingino rei (sorry can't spell in English anymore so if this happens more just call Simpson). Thank you for your faith and prayers in my behalf. But seriously things have been good and Elder Dann and I are having a blast here in Romulum. I'll admit that when I first got called to Romulum I was kind of worried and bummed because across from the Mwan chapel there is a house where all the chon Romulum stay when they are in Mwan and because of past times (long long time ago) the local kids would come to the Elder's house at all hours and nothing ever got done and stuff was getting stolen and all in all complete and utter chaos ruled... Well I guess I was worried that it would be like that all the time here and it kind of was but then I realized that the only reason it is like that in Mwan is because the kids are away from their parents haha. But here in Romulum they are more or less surrounded by parents and family so the problems gets slowed some haha. I have met some cool people here and have seen some fruits from the labors of the past and some of my own and over all it has been a fantastic few months and really I can see myself finishing off here. With who? I don't know, but we will find out on Sunday August 23. The longest I have stayed in one area has been three transfers and that was Wichap the first time and the rest of the areas were 2 or 1 transfers... List time
3 Wichap - Elder Peck
2 Nantaku - Elder Simpson
1 Uman - Elder Fermanis
2 Guam (Denedo South) - Elder Rice
2 Michitiw - Elder Kleven
2 Wichap - Elder Matavao
2 (+ 1 week) Romulum - Elder Dann
So if keeping with this streak I will be moving, but again I don't know so we will see...
I am super blessed to have been called to the Micronesia Guam Mission. As much as I wanted to go somewhere like Alaska or Europe, I definitely would not pick anywhere else now. Living in a 15x15 box and showering out of a bucket and every little thing. I love it so much and have a hard time accepting that it will end in 5 short months. But at the same time excited to see you all again. You guys plan out the first couple of days as long as it involves stopping by my old McDonalds at least 2 or 3 times, haha.
I'll wrap it up with my testinomy. That I knkow the church is true and I also knkow that our work is necessary to all people so that all can see eternal life. If we help but one of our friends come unto Christ it's worth it. Sometimes our work isn't easy , we drift from what we're supposed to do when the Lord tells us or, and we simply go and find the things God wants us to do. God really knows us. We're children of heaven. Like David and Goliath, David wasn't afraid and he just believed in the power of God. Therefore, we should make efforts like David and the Lord will absolutely help us to be happy. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
Love you all, have fun, read the scriptures and pray every day!
