I've seen worse back home

Area: Waipiolani Ward , Oahu
 Companion:  Elder Soifua

Well this last week was pretty good.  The hurricane wasn't even that bad over here where we are located.  Just some showers not bad at all.... I've seen worse back at home.  

Most of the appointments that we had this last week got cancelled and stuff like that which is okay, we will keep pushing along. 

We played some ultimate Frisbee this morning. 

Don't have a whole lot of time. Sorry it's short.

I love you guys and cya later

Love Elder Shoemaker

Thought I'd (Elder Shoe's mom) add in a little drama and show you all the hurricane pictures I kept track of during the Hurricane events of last week!  I promised I wasn't too obsessed.

Also was able to get a current address for Elder Shoemaker which is list on the right top of the blog.  Here's is a better idea of where he is located on Oahu.  
He's living in a town called Waipahu.

TRANSFER to Mililani

Area: Waipiolani Ward, Oahu
Companion:  Elder Soifua

Hey whats up! So I have been transferred to the Mililani stake and I am now serving in the Waipiolani ward.  It's a pretty good change. Hon West is pretty nice.

{best guess of where he is located, hopefully will have a new address next week}

My companion's name is Elder Soifua. He's from West Valley Utah and he is Samoan.  He goes home in 6 weeks so this guys is super trunky man.  This will probably be a little bit of an issue to keep him motivated.  He loves to sleep and can fall asleep in a second.

 There's pretty much like ONE investigators they were working with when I came.  So we'll definitely see what happens here.  The ward is pretty cool though.  There is actually a lot of rich people that live in our area and a lot of middle class people.  A change from where I used to be.  There is definitely work to be done and I feel if we can keep motivated we may have some good fortune in this new area.   

For p-day we went to this pineapple maze - pretty fun.  Then drove around Wailua and Hale'iwa on the North Shore.  It was pretty fun. So yea I kinda need to go soon so love you guys see ya later.

Love, Elder Shoemaker
