We’re taking an hour long bus ride to Nadi for zone conference, so we’re a little early just for today. We’re going to a zone conference this week, so the average missionary day schedule of Monday and Tuesday is going to be absorbed into presentations from the leaders here in the Fiji Suva Mission. We get to eat food prepared by the senior couples (at least I’m pretty sure we do) so that will be a treat.
Most of the buses in Nausori had personalized paint jobs, but the ones here are green and blue.
Beaches but no ports? (her father went on his mission to Vina del Mar, Chile). We have ports and no beaches, but we did get to teach a lesson next to the sea wall.
The work here is good, we’ve got lots of members to work with. I feel like a real missionary now because I get to walk and look for people instead of relying mostly on referrals. The fruit here is absolutely delicious, and we’ve got a very interesting ward. Sister Taufa and I are putting lots of time and effort into this area, and the transfer is almost halfway done. I’m very happy here and I’m very happy to be with this companion. She’s a saint and a very good missionary.
Love, Sister Hawkins
