Sunday, April 27th

Our Stake Conference today was a satellite broadcast. It was just for the people of the South Pacific. It was great. Elder Robins of the Presidency of the 70 was the first speaker and his talk was so good for the people here. He talked about controlling anger. Sister Merriot was next and she told her conversion story and talked about how important it is for the members to be missionaries and support the missionaries. We also were able to hear from Elder Bednar and Elder Hales. We loved the talks, the Spirit that we felt and the opportunity to hear the Tongans singing in Tongan. We really look forward to Stake Conference because the music is soooooooooooo beautiful!

We were able to watch the movie “Frozen” tonight. The Van Den Akkers brought it with them when they came. The other couples watched it last night, but we went into town to our conference and then we were invited to a feast just for President Tupou, the Stake Presidency and us. Sister Mitchell was with us and so we invited her to watch the movie with us tonight. It was cute, I really enjoyed it.

We planned to take the food into the new couple’s houses tonight, but those houses haven’t been cleaned yet. The plane arrives at noon tomorrow!! Someone had better get right on that!
