Ok Sorry about last week, but here's the run down. I'm in Ka'u on the big island it's the most southern area in the U.S. Southpoint is in my area, it's the biggest area as well. It's about an hour and a half south of Hilo. It's super dry because they have had a drought for 2 years now, and have been feeling the major effects this last year. It's pretty bad. I'm the first greenie to come to Ka'u in 9 years. It's a hard area cause it's so spread out and so travel takes up a lot of time. Which also means there is a lot of less active cause they don't have the money to drive to the chapel. Our pad is behind the chapel, it's way nice it was where the couple missionaries used to live. But they left when I came in so we moved from his last pad into this pad, therefore we got all the left over food, the truck,, which there is only 3 in the whole mission, so a lot of missionaries envy it haha. We have queen size beds and just a nice all the way around pad (living quarters). Oh and my companion is Elder Salima, He's a great missionary, he's from samoa and we get along just great! He doesn't have his license so I drive everywhere.
The person next to me on the plane coming to Hawaii was so confused on why I was going to Hawaii for 2 years and I coudn't get in the water. I tried to explain to her why, but she was lost and I probably didn't so a very good job ha. But we did have a good long conversation. Right when we got our luggage is where we met our mission president and the assistants. We went over to his house and just learned more about the mission where we were going and who's going to be our companion. I found out though that the mission home is where the Josh Grober, from the movie "the Other Side Of Heaven" family lived there and when the apostals would come to the home they slept in the same room as I did. Pretty crazy. I love the weather here of course, and I love the humidity. The next day they threw us out on the streets on Oahu and broke us in as new missionaries haha, it was a good experience. Lost were rude, but we were able pass a out a Book of Mormon, got her number and a time to visit her.
So I've tried a lot of different food's mainly cause the bishop and his wife come every night with something new ha. I've tried Blood Pork/ Octupus/ Poi/Raw Fish/ some fish and meat thing rapped in a leaf/ and others that I can't spell or remember the name ha.
So friday night we came home and I saw my Ipod was missing from my IHome Docking system then my companion had his hair trimmer missing as well. We went out side looking around and found his hair trimmer on the ground and never found my Ipod. Later we saw they broke in the bathroom window. We don't know why they didn't steal my docking system and only my ipod, then drop his trimmer then decide to take my shoes as well.... :) the best two years! haha no but really it's been amazing we've got two people with baptismal dates and 3 more on the way, We'll have to go I'll catch up on the rest next week.
