The temple open house, has come to an end. Tavua had 3 charter buses go. Many people were able to go see the inside of the temple. Temples are definitely my favorite. I am anxious for the celebration. The mission will be doing a walk-on at the end of the celebration, we will be the last part, for those of you who wish to watch. To my family, please get a recording of the stream, I would like to have that for afterwards.
This week we visited the 1st counsellor of our Ward. It had been some time since we saw him. I went to Rakiraki then Ba for church weeks ago, so it had been 4 weeks since we had seen him, but we heard from Bishop that his leg was amputated because of his diabetes. We went to bishop and said we will bring bro. Amoi sacrament yesterday. We went inside and said hello. He was very surprised to see us. We gave him sacrament, and afterwards he bore the most sincere true testimony I have heard. He told us that he was wondering where the elders were, and had thought he was forgotten, tears in his eye he shared a testimony of Jesus love to us all. I was very glad we decided to take him the sacrament we will continue visiting.
