Companion: Elder Vaitaki
Hey hows it going Mom and Dad and everyone else? Its going pretty good over here, ya. We had a baptism for FOUR boys. Kaimana, Alapaki, Logan, and Kamalu. It was last Saturday and it was pretty crazy and wonderful at the same time.
I had the oportunity to baptize Kamalu and Paki.................And oh man, Kamalu's full name is Kamalu J Titus Pomaikai Kauhanehooikaika Aana-Kaohi. The other was easier, Alapak Kahakai Kade Turalde. But man it was kinda a mouthful!!! I was able to get it right the first time though. It was pretty cool and pretty sweet. All the kids are cousins and part of the "K" family. Most of their parents are less active members of the church. Now Kaimana and Alapakis' Mom has decided to come to church more for the kids, so that's awesome. Kamalu's Mom has really opened up too. I feel that this could really help the families. Their cousin who also came to the baptism said she wanted to be baptized and we are teaching her this Wednesday. We also just got told from our dinner last night that they have another cousin who wants to come to church and stuffs so we're gonna stop by there. We're also working this girl named Kimi. We knock on her door and a guy answers it and we're like 'crap', law of chastity and word of wisdom problems -- check!! However he's actually a pretty nice guy and they both really want to learn more about the church. It's very busy.
Okay, well this computer is gonna turn off soon so I have to go but, I love you guys and all that!
cya later .....
