This week has been fun. Bunch of really good lessons and so on.
On monday Elder Enos was able to save my flashdrive. A virus got downloaded onto it the week before from a members computer, and seemingly deleted all nine gigs of my videos and photos from the beginning of my mission. So I was super pumped to get all of those back, and super lucky to have an elder in my vahe that knows how to open up flashdrives with fancy coding computer stuff. So that was awesome. On tuesday we had a bunch of appointments fall through, but one of them was a teaching at the tongan sports hall of fame. Olympic medals and trophies from international tournaments all over the place. The cool thing though, was that Tongans I guess either don't understand the value of these items, or don't care, and so everything was left out in the open, no locks, no security, no anything. Literally an open building with no people and all of these medals just lying on shelves. 2008 Beijing Olympic Bronze medals.... You could say I was more than a little tempted to put one in my bag. I met the new mission President on Wednesday, and he's awesome. Super cool guy.
On saturday we walked to the far end of our area called mata ki eua. You're supposed to be able to see my home island of Eua from there, but thats not true. However, the prince's palace is right there, and so we walked up to the side and got a good close look. I didn't think we were supposed to be there though, trespassing maybe, so we left quickly. That was cool though.
Love all of you guys, and hope you are all doing super well!
