Hi Dad, Mom, Justin, Lily, Will, Lucy, & Spike
Just to clear up some misinformation from my previous email, he is from California. Both of his parents are from Samoa. He was raised speaking Samoan, but now only understands a little. He has been in the mission a little under a year, and all the locals say he has almost no accent. I agree, his castellano (pronounced cas-ti-shaw-no--the word they use here for Español) is fantastic.
Since he is the new one in the area, I am the only one with any experience in the area. I've had to make all the plans, find our way around the town, point out members. It's been really stressful. I can't wait until I'm familiar enough with the area I don't get us lost every 30 minutes. It certainly has been a learining experience.
Elder Seguine is tough and will be fine, I´m sure. What an experience!
6 I glory in plainness; I glory in truth; I glory in my Jesus, for he hath redeemed my soul from hell.
10 And now, my beloved brethren, and also Jew, and all ye ends of the earth, hearken unto these words and believe in Christ; and if ye believe not in these words believe in Christ. And if ye shall believe in Christ ye will believe in these words, for they are the words of Christ, and he hath given them unto me; and they teach all men that they should do good.
11 And if they are not the words of Christ, judge ye--for Christ will show unto you, with power and great glory, that they are his words, at the last day; and you and I shall stand face to face before his bar; and ye shall know that I have been commanded of him to write these things, notwithstanding my weakness.
