It was awesome to serve with sister Chandler. She sure can work! When we whitewashed the area it was pretty tough, A lot of people that were being taught didn't want to meet with us anymore. therefore we spent a lot of time on the streets. We met more bloodthirsty dogs than humans, but everyday we had a tender mercy. Step by step we managed to expand our teaching-pool. Also, you really know when you're serving with a Hawaiian when the first thing that's being said when we come across a plumeria tree: 'those flowers will make some beautiful leis'. she literally collects flowers anywhere and can make a lei with any kind of flower. I am such a proud mom for having such a talented daughter (when a missionary trains someone, the missionary is referred to as mom or dad, and the trainees are daughter or son).
Also, we have some pretty creative elders in our area who can make reading the scriptures a lot of fun. For example: Who was the First Avenger? 1 Thessalonians 4:6 :)
Funfact: Chickenskin is actually an existing word here in Hawaii. Who needs goosebumps when you can have chickenskin? :)
and of course, the most important story of the day: Some members of our ward went online and bought me something Dutch! Muntendrop. Yum. I am trying to share these delicious treats with others but no one seems to really like them. It's all good... They're just rejecting my culture. No big deal... BUT, the more muntendrop for me :)
Story time to be continued.
