Alright! Spiders (or at least one), fall through(s), and such.......
Sorry I had to quickly email last week. Got busy with stuff, but Sa oti macawa ivakataotioti,oqo na macawa vou tekivu! (the last week ended this new week started!) Nothing of importance happened Monday or Tuesday, really. Wednesday was when we started to do interesting stuff. So, we took a bus to the far reaches of our area to meet Ronil, and Shavani! They are awesome! Well, when heading out there, neither of us knew where Teidamu is, so we drove past it. Elder Pence asked the guy next to him who said we were in Tubu, and Teidamu was back a ways. So we got off the bus in the middle of nowhere. Luckily, Ronil has a van. He came and picked us up. Then they gave us tin fish and pepper sandwiches with sprite. It was there that the spider in the picture below was sitting over my head the whole time we were there. I did not notice it until we were getting ready to leave. As Ronil and Shavani left (to get us a popou which is a really sweet fruit), we got to work on the spider. I took a picture, but Elder Pence thought it was fried (mate or dead). So I poked at it with my pen, well it jumped. So, we countered with a(n) hand towel a less active gave me. Elder Pence missed, so it hid where we could not see it on the other side of the board. We used the towel, cause you can not bring shoes into a house. It is tabu sara ga! Well, he drove us back, but we didn't tell him about the stuff with the spider. (I asked Connor about the a(n) reference and he said it is from a you tube video or something that the kids used to laugh at. He has to put them in his emails to keep his identity and not lose himself while he is gone. The same goes for the movie references to come later.)
Later the same day, we bought TP! Well, it turned into us going to teach, and Elder Pence left it at our investigators house! They got free TP. Where as that night I was face palming over this discovery...... Well, we bought some more the next day.
We visited another members house, where they gave us 20 FJD and a bag of food items. They said the missionaries used to come home (since everyone in Fiji says come home, there is no our house, or my house) and visit all the time, and we were the first in 5 months. They were so excited! Well, when we get money we have to spend it all that night so we ran into town to eat at mammus. There was a bunch of drunk Kai Jaina (the Fijian for Asian) in the place. They were up dancing about, but it was the only place close that was open, so we stayed.
There was also Elder Pence eating the fish eyeball. He has a video, but we can not upload it. Sorry......
The rest of the week was slow, with fall throughs, walking a lot with Elder Abplanalp, and me doing missionary paperwork. The boring stuff. Veitalia though. Until next week enjoy the an spee-I-der! And happy anniversary mom and dad here is a pic of remembrance! (I can't believe he remembered our anniversary. What a good son!)
(This is Connor's remembrance of our anniversary on July 11.)
