It's the rainy season in Samoa. It has rained most of the last week. Since we are avid walkers this crimped our style a bit. Last Saturday night we decided we were going to brave it. We discovered that we can walk around the courtyard of the school and not get wet. As far as I know there is no such thing as an interior hallway in a school or church in Samoa. All classrooms in the school and all rooms in the chapel have windows on both sides for ventilation purposes. The walkway on each side of the classrooms at the school is covered. So we found a place to walk without getting soaking wet.
It was a pretty quiet week in the mission. President Leota likes to bring the zones into the mission home for zone conferences and then have them attend the Temple after their training. They brought in 10 zones this week from Savaii and Upolu and held 2 sessions per day. Some of the smaller zones were combined. President & Sister Leota and the assistants left Friday to fly to Tutuila to hold conferences for the zones there. They will return on Monday to hold conferences on Monday and Tuesday for the remaining zones on Upolu and Savaii. The missionaries love the training and go back to their areas spiritually energized and ready to carry out the work we are involved in.
